RAT does not extend automatically on main generator failure

Yesterday night, I got badly hit by a BRDM-2 unit. The aircraft was still flyable but the ELFEL warning light showed up. At the time, I didn't know one can manually extend the Ram Air Turbine thanks to the RESERVSTRÖM swtch. Instead, I patiently waited for the RAT to come out of its hidden place, but it didn't and I had to crash land.

 

I was able to reproduce this in a short track: I trigger a main generator failure at T+3 seconds. The ELFEL warning light shows up after a few seconds, but the RAT does not extend automatically.

Do you try the reverström Switch?

Yep, it worked right away, and kept my aircraft alive (under the condition of staying over 290 km/h and below 700 km/h).
