    Questions about rockets and auto prop.

    Hi all, just wanted to check a few things I have only just noticed through the various updates.

    1) A while ago we had to turn on/off the auto prop in the 110C-7 late and 109 E/4 before and after take off. Has that changed, because I can no longer find the key programming for it? I haven't had time to try flying either yet to see what happens.

    2) Are rockets available as a load out yet? I thought for sure the Beaufighter would have had them?

    Thank you.
    Cheers, Aussie Pilot.

    1. You still have to "toggle prop automation" after first spawning the aircraft, then use the buttons 'increase and decrease prop pitch' as appropriate; the controls are still here:



    2. Rockets for the Beaufighter came into service later than the versions modelled in the sim, I believe.


    Fractal Design Define R5, Corsair AX 760W, Corsair Hydro H110, Asus X99-DELUXE, Intel Core i7-5820K, Corsair Vengeance 16GB, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB, Western Digital Black 2TB, Win 10 Home 64-bit, VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle, VKB Gladiator Pro, MFG Crosswind, Wheel Stand Pro, Track-IR 5, Logitech G933, Eizo ColorEdge CS240

    See Snapper's explanation for the prop control.

    Re. Rockets:

    These were not in use till later in the war than the period covered in the two current modules.

    First use of the rockets was on Hurricane II/IV's in Tunisia.

    The Beaufighter was not equipped with rockets till 1943.
