And what about the Yak-9? 2 second rolls?

Just wondering.

I'd really like to contribute in some meaningful way to this thread but those little beady green eyes are giving me the creeps.

Seriously, though. These planes roll as well or better than the Fw-190 at low speeds.

I don't have any charts on the Ki-84, but I suspect it was no 2 second roller at any speed. I doubt any Yak was either.
