  2. I'll think about it! 😄 At least one is being worked on as we speak.
  3. My question is related to before any attempt to start the engine is even made, not the starter system itself. You have a few illuminated gauges in the cockpit... that electrical power must come from somewhere.
  4. Hi folks, I've begun to study the Hawker Tempest Mk V for fun and I was wondering about something. During the automated start-up sequence, at the very beginning the voltage seems to go from 0 to a normal battery voltage. However, there is no battery switch nor generator switch in the cockpit.. so my question is: what exactly provides this voltage pre-start-up? The documentation I found explained that the generator was automatic, however I don't know if the aircraft "engine off" power was provided with a ground power unit or with LRUs (Line Replaceable Unit) located in the fuselage like the Spitfire. In the Spitfire, the battery (also called "accumulator") is located in the fuselage and can only be turned on by a ground crew after he installs & connects the battery in its compartment. Is it a similar system for the Tempest, or was a GPU cart used in real life? I know this has zero incidence in-game, but I was just curious to see if anyone had the answer to that.
  5. So... I was wondering if there was an interest for guides for Western planes.
  6. A few new things during the last few months Major overhaul of the Mi-8, Harrier, Mirage and Tomcat guides Added JF-17 Thunder Added F-16C Viper Added P-47D Thunderbolt

  13. Your material comes directly from the devs themselves. My stuff comes from what documentation I could gather on the internet. Your documentation is official. Mine isn't, which makes yours infinitely more valuable and relevant.
  14. Glad to see my work and Requiem's being reduced to "a great deal of useless information". Thanks for nothing.
