in A6M2, i can't go faster then 480kmh TAS with no ammo and 25% fuel at 4000m.
isn't this too slow?
A6M2 should be able too go more then 520kmh TAS.

It says right in the objects viewer.

A6M2

Sea level 425km/h

At 4,550 478km/h


A6M5

Sea level 462km/h

At 6000m 555km/h


By your test, it's 2km/h too fast.

the object viewer is not the holy bible !

nevertheless , 520 TAS would be too fast.
i have read about 275 knots ~495 km/h.

It's not too slow just made to be light weight for fast turns and manoeuvrability.
It can also fly for hours on 25% of fuel with 50% trottle http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

You can't compete against P38s and P51s for speed but they can't stay on your 6! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

BTW if you fly over 25ks you can't turn. Be an F1 Don't be a hot-rod http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.
