1) turbo prop (mostly fitted with turbocharged continental TSIO-520 engine)2) most3) yes if you have the "general" bush flying in mind.

1. This is definitely NOT a turbo prop!!!!! The 210 has a classic old piston engine.3. No, due to its critical wingsection (NACA64A Series) and the retractable tri-cyle landing gear, wich isn't really suitable for bush operation either @bliksimpie What makes you believe that this is a turboprop?????What's 'general' bush flying?

the c210M: Wiki: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Cessna_210 the 210M was a normal old piston engine with a turbo fitted thus = "TURBO PROP" see below I copied it for you : maybe you get confused with "turbine prop" like the C208 -------------------------------------------------------------------- 210 Four-seat production variant with a Continental IO-470-E engine, 40 degrees hydraulic flap, gear doors, introduced in 1960.,[9] first flown in 1957, 575 built.[2] 210A A 210 with a third cabin window on each side, introduced in 1961, 265 built.[2] 210B A 210A with a cut-down rear fuselage, a rear vision window and a Continental IO-470-S engine, introduced in 1962, 245 built.[2] 210C A 210B with some minor changes, introduced in 1963, 135 built.[2] 210D Centurion A 210C fitted with a 285 hp (213 kW) Continental IO-520-A engine and increased take-off weight to 3,100 lb (1,406 kg),[9] introduced in 1964, 290 built.[2] 210E Centurion A 210D with some minor changes, introduced in 1965, 205 built.[2] 210F Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210E with some minor changes and optional 285 hp (213 kW) turbocharged Continental TSIO-520-C engine, introduced in 1966, 300 built.[2] 210G Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210F with a strutless cantilever wing and modified rear window, increased take-off weight to 3,300 lb (1,497 kg),[9] introduced in 1967, 228 built.[2] 210H Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210G with a new flap system and instrument panel, 210 built.[2] Flap range decreased to 30 degrees, fuel capacity increased from 65 to 90 US gal (246 to 341 l). Introduced in 1968.[9] 210J Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210H with reduced wing dihederal, different nose profile and a Continental IO-520-J (or TSIO-520H) engine, introduced in 1969, 200 built.[2] 210K Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210J with rear changed to full seat to provide six seats, a IO-520-L engine with 300 hp (224 kW) limited to 5 minutes, landing gear changed, enlarged cabin with a single rear side window, weight increased to 3,800 lb (1,724 kg), produced 1970-71, 303 built.[2][9] 210L Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210K with nose-mounted landing lights, the electrical system changed to 24 volt, the engine driven hydraulic pump replaced with an electrical pump and a three bladed prop fitted. Improved aerodynamics led to an increase in approximately 8 kn (15 km/h) in cruise speed.[9] Produced 1972-76, 2070 built.[2] 210M Centurion / Turbo Centurion A 210L with an optional 310 hp (231 kW) TSIO-520-R engine and minor changes, produced 1977-80, 1381 built.[2 General characteristics

------------------------------------------------------------ General bushflying is considered landing at proper well maintained bush landing strips. and I have seen them used extensively in South africa/Botswana/Angola where you will not even try and land normal fixed geared planes... Those landing gear o the 210 stand up to a lot more then you give it credit for.. secondly this is a simulation where u can land the 210 wherever u wanted to and I yet have to broke a landing gear of the 210 in the simulation.. Want photos of actual 210 trips around southern africa to proof it to you?? As I have it you have how many hours on a 210 in real life.. ZERO..! hahahaha

Sorry but you have absolutely NO idea what you are talking about.Please keep out of such discussions if you don't know the most basic aviation terms an hence you can't even answer these simple questions!!!!Turbo prop = Jet engine with reduction gear for the propTurbine prop = a bliksimpie inventionIf you think that a rectractable gear is more sturdy and less maintainance intensive than e.g. a classic 206 gear....well, than this is a weird as your 'turbine prop' invention

Ottor is correct. The T210 is powered by a piston engine which is turbocharged. It is not powered by a turbine.
