In a couple of Shifting Sands scenarios, I noticed that the Skyraider and Noratlas had much lower fuel usage in military power than in cruise. Looking through the in-game DB viewer, I found several more:
(Almost all of these are listed as having a 'Turboprop' engine, even though most should be 'Piston'.) In most cases, all sub-models of these planes are also affected (e.g. P-40B/C/D/E/F/etc). I didn't find any jet-powered aircraft that had this apparent inversion. The inversion holds true in all altitude bands. CWDB build 469 and up has the problem, Build 468 and lower do not. I haven't found any planes in DB3000 with this issue, but haven't looked extensively.
I have a save file but can't seem to upload it. Duplicating is easy though, just start a new blank scenario with CWDB 469 or later, add one of the affected planes, and change the throttle between cruise and military, or look in the in-game DB viewer. Please let me know if you need any more info. Thanks!
Edit: Forgot to mention, this is the Steam version of CMANO, v1.13, Build 972.10.
Thanks on the to do list :)
