Default Is it possible to fly the Bf-110 with 1 engine?

Did not succeed any tips? Or is it not possible?

I don't think that it was even possible in real life.

It's more like engine assisted glide after one engine is lost. Range seems to be enought usually to cross canal and if lucky enought land on a landing strip.

Protip: check compass direction to sun because every time i have got shot flying 110 i have lost my compass. This way you'll have even slightest change to know where france is without taking 50/50 chance and found out that AA on airstrip you are landing is shooting at you.

Historically no but there maybe stories out there saying yes..........


Bf110's were rapidly landed/ditched/crashed when engine failure occurred.

Most engine failure reports are the same for Bf110's they were not able to safely fly home due to possible engine fire.

I would imagine thier training was to put it down asap.

From this site that has interesting Axis Allied aircraft accounts/losses from Denmark

It was possible to fly on one engine in real life in the Me-110 and maintain altitude.

Twin engine aircraft all have additional speeds Single Engine do not.

Vmc = minimum control speed with one engine out <changes with conditions but is given one a standard day in a standard configuration>

Critical engine windmilling

Most aft CG

Most favorable configuration

Bank angle

Density altitude

All of these effect Vmc.

Vxse = Maximum angle of climb single engine

Vyse = Maximum rate of climb single engine

Both are the same speed as normal Vx and Vy, the rate is ~75% less on average though.

Vsse = intentional engine out operating speed - The lowest speed you can be to practice engine out procedures. This is a safety speed given by the manufacturer.

Twin engine aircraft have their single engine service ceiling and absolute ceiling greatly reduced. It is a function of the density altitude.

Service ceiling is the altitude the aircraft can only climb at a 50 fpm rate. Absolute ceiling is the point were Vx and Vy converge and the aircraft cannot climb at all but can only maintain altitude.

On a hot day and high altitude airport, the absolute ceiling may be lower than the ground level. Our airplane could not maintain altitude and would descend to the ground.

Its performance is extremely limited on engine. It is a characteristic of all twins.

You lose an engine, you want to get them down. Especially in combat.

Here is a good general article on flying twins.

So the answer is no you don't fly the Bf110 on one engine in CloD.

I watched a AI with one engine mid-channel 5000 make it home to the base. The landing was not a success

There are historical accounts of BoB Bf110's making home across the channel.

They bailed out when over France.

This is a bit different, but I remember either Oleg showing us, or maybe it was a training mission in the other game. He-111 successful landing with one engine.
