"Umschalterstellung" indicator in the Bf-110

Recommended Posts

What is the meaning of the white lamp indicators marked "Umschalterstellung links/rechts" in the Bf-110? Sometimes they are on, most of the times they are off, but what do they do? Looks somehow related with fuel management...

 

Screenshot attached.

I´d say Umschalterstellung means switch position. Apart from that obvious observation I could not get the lamp to light up, well my milage with the 110 is very small.

Any Idea under which conditions they light up?

They light up when transferring fuel from rear tanks to front tanks which feed the engines.  Above 44%, fuel fills up the rear tanks which then will start transferring to the front tanks when they are low on fuel.

Take off in Bf-110-E2 with 50% fuel and after few minutes of flight on combat power it lights up.
