Bell P-39K-1


  • 2 months later...

At 1325 HP, that would correspond to a maximum manifold pressure of 50-51 inches Hg - so it's modeled as running on B95 fuel, correct?

 

In the second source, 60" Hg operation is listed as possible (P-39-D2) on 130 grade (100 octane) fuel. Which was in limited supply in the Soviet Union, so I guess 51" Hg is understandable.

By the way, could you clarify the weight differenes?

 

P-39K/L operating instructions:

http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/P-39/P-39K-1_L1_Operating_Instructions.pdf

 

The weight listed is with "auxilliary tank overload" is 8200 lbs, "normal" is listed as 7600 lbs. There's a loading chart there, anyway.

 

The overloaded weight includes a belly tank, see page 18 of manual, "General flight characteristics".
