Default Air brakes not working

I took the MiG-29 for a few spins last night and noticed that although I can see the air-brake switch moving on the throttle handle in the cockpit when I actuate it, the speed-brakes do not deploy. This appears to be a broken feature.

Will not deploy with external centerline tank or Landing gear down. AFAIK, it suppose to work like that on the real aircraft.

Thank you! That was most helpful - I was using centre-line tank.

Yep, speedbrake won't open with centerline tank in place, or gear down.


It also won't open fully if you're going really fast.
