So, just a couple of days ago, I discovered I could use Emergency Cooling on my Tier III and IV bombers.  If my memory is correct, I could only have Engine Restart in that slot before.

 

Did I just miss the notification of this change or am I just a senile old fool?

I'd go with that second one.

I would remove the word "senile" from that last sentence if I were you.

Since 2.0.5 all planes can equip the same consumables and equipment if they have the slots available and are of the same period. I personally run Engine Cooling on all my ground pounders :bajan:

Engine restart on GA. Have you ever been hit in the engine while heading for a mountain? With engine shot up? I have.

Well, you could have all sugar coated it for an old fart.  But Noooooooooo, brutal honesty is called for!

With Engine Cooling I can get 10 seconds of free boost, or turn it on while not boosting to get 15-16 seconds of boost charge. Not only that, it's part of my Divebombing setup for the Pe-2s :child:

2/3 not bad! Not quite enough to win the grand prize though.

    To think that after all this time and all the conflict and drama, all you and your pointless posse can muster is keeping a very watchful eye on the one small flaw in my grammar that still persists. 

 

    Would it not be just a whole lot easier to join the Prenzlau Fan Club and hang my crest on your wall, sing some songs of my greatness and toast your imperious leader? But it is always the ridiculous hard road with diversion and antics that only prolong the inevitable. 

 

    Can't we just be friends? Would it not just be better that way?

For single engine GAs, twin engine GAs are just fine without one.

And that's why I don't fly Soviet GAs....

Cooling and mixture if there are two slots.  So much better than engine restart.
