Just a thought, but where did the numbers come from?

Most factory or company performance tests were done with a special "test plane" that was not only perhaps trimmed down a little, but also definitely built to a much higher standard of manufacture than mass-produced models. Most prod'n planes couldn't actually achieve their full specs.

Unless anyone has info to the contrary...

I wouldn't go so far as to say it was a specially built plane, but rather one that was empty w/ low fuel. Fly at 25% fuel and empty, and you can match that. Add a combat loadout, and good luck.
