What a fight! Takes a lot of practice n sense those plans are so tiny it makes for a tough shot! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

In real life which one is faster?

The Komet is faster - I think the B1 starts to do some Very bad things after approx 750KM/H

From Memory the Komet had about 0.85 for its critical Mach. In tests it got to 1003.6KM/H before compressibility set in at 40,000 Feet.

In my experience, neither can really hurt each other. The speeds and G forces are too high for any human to hit another rocket plane. That aside, the Me-163B is vastly superior. It has bigger guns, more ammo, more fuel and better high speed handling. The Bi-1 has a low speed advantage but we are talking about rockets, they don't do that low speed thing.

I build COOPs and DF maps. If you would like some of them you can get them atmy COOP page (http://www14.brinkster.com/triggerhappy770/default.htm)

I/JG1 Oesau is recruiting axis pilots who prefer to fly maximum realism. We accept both veterans and rookies. We fly in VEF2, VOW and may join other online wars in the future. Go to our forums at http://www.jg1-oesau.org/ for more details and to apply.

Worddd. Yeah I was able to shoot down a couple BI-1s in a 163 before losing my engine. Its kind of funny the way you mess with the AI, since that it flys the plane with BnZ under the assumption that nothing can catch it. Boy did I have his number, too bad the wings are so thick in the Komet. Imagine if the Germans had adopted a Laminar flow design.

I had a most entertaining fight in a Me-163 vs. a BI-1 not long ago.
We were just a few people on the server, and were just fooling around. Externals were enabled.
Anyway, I took the Me-163 and decided to raise some trouble. After they apparently got tired of the silly thing buzzing around them incessantly, one landed and took a BI-1.
He took off and turned to chase me. I didn't even bother with a dogfight - I just firewalled the throttle and flew straight and level. He managed to keep his distance for a while, and then suddenly pitched down and began a dive towards the ground. I watched with some amusement as his dive steepened, plunging him through a cloud and finally to his fiery demise on the ground below.

I couldn't help a hearty laugh. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Whats that thin line of something like smoke or string behind the Me-163, not the smoke from the engine but the little thread like line.



Only in the spirit of attack, born in a brave heart, will bring success to any fighter aircraft, no matter how highly developed it may be.

Yeah the B1 likes to do that Above approx 750Km/h - I think the CG Creaps forward as it gets to its critical Mach.

Just lay her on its back (Aileron control is still fine) and bleed off speed in the resulting shallow climb.

I think its the Fuel turbine pump Vent, the pumps are always in operation while you have fuel onboard.

Fly the B1 like you would a hurricane vs a 109g6 or a zero vs a mustang.......as the 163 tries to get a solution, dodge and get your shot on his pass.
