I noticed something while flying the Zero A6M2 model in a recent dogfight with some Wildcats. I was doing well, I had just flamed a F4F about 400 ft above the ocean, when suddenly the engine on the Zero seemed to misfire, and lose power!? I paused the game, looked the ac over, no signs of damage, looked at the instrument panel, I had lots of fuel, every thing was nominal with the end result being me down in the drink for no apparent reason!!??
If the engine quit because of fuel starvation because of negative "G" forces that is GREAT!, good realistic fm, if not then I'm stumped!
By the way, as far as my earlier comments about the "UBER" Betty's, I attacked two Betty bombers from about their 2 oclock low position. The lead Betty promply rolled into a dive at me head on and hit my Wildcat about 4 times with 20mm fire THEN...he turned in BEHIND me and from about 800+ yards he hit me 4-5 times more!!
