Visible liquid in whisky compass and bubbles when firing GAU-8


Recommended Posts

Fairly certain that's a malfunctioning whiskey compass, and not normal. Compasses with fluid should have little to no air in them, and that one looks like it has a major leak.

Hm, I´ve seen other videos with the compass going crazy when the gun fires, so it might be realistic.

If it is, I think this would be a nice little detail in DCS.

Oh please no! More concerned with impact area, targets, current threat assessment to name but a few (and FPS) rather than watch some bubbles in a ball! :laugh:

A whole bunch of people have commented on earlier requests referring to this video that a well maintained whiskey compass should not nearly show as many bubbles and that this particular one is in pretty bad shape and should be replaced/filled up.

 

Having such an effect in DCS would look nice, but would probably not be representative of the fleet of well maintained aircraft out there.

As Yurgon said, a properly maintained whiskey compass will not have air bubbles inside it.  When there is air inside the compass to make bubbles, it means that the seals are leaking fluid.
