IL2 Compare has it listed at 350 kph.

Sustained or initial?

My notes have it at appx 275kts (400-450kph) for initial corner and ~300kts for best roll rate. Granted, I've not tested these specifically in IL2FB but then again most air combat is about relativity and not so much about textbook application in the end anyway.

If you got the numbers from a manual then yours are probably the official "real life" ones. But for the game I think the ones in IL2 Compare are pretty accurate.

Approx how big would that (275kts) make the turn circle? 500-1000m?
