When flying the F-18 that comes with the FSX acceleration package, how can one tell at a glance whether the afterburners are on or off? Can one tell by looking at the N1 or the ITT, or is there some kind of indicator for afterburner status?
I didn't read this but check it out and I hope it helps.
Nope -- it shows where the MMD is (which I already know), and the different engine parameters displayed on it (from top to bottom: Engine Status; Inlet Temp; N1; N2; EGT; Fuel Flow; Nozzle Position; Oil Press; Thrust; Fan Vibration; EPR; CDP or COP -- whatever that means; CPR -- I trust this has nothing to do with first aid; THA -- I don't know that this means either; two oil temperatures (AMAD or AMAO -- whatever that means -- and engine oil); and APU RPM. But it doesn't say anything about any clear indication of A/B status. But I think I have some ideas about what would tell me that the afterburners are on -- N1 and N2 would stay the same, but EGT, fuel flow, nozzle position, and thrust would all go higher. Is that correct?
You'd have to check the effects cfg to see what they have set for the afterburners.
