I've seen figures about top speed here:

http://home.att.net/~jbaugher1/p51_10.html

P-51D-25-NA:
-------------------
395 mph at 5000 ft = 636 kph at 1500 meters
416 mph at 10000 ft = 669 kph at 3000 meters
424 mph at 20000 ft = 682 kph at 6100 meters
437 mph at 25000 ft = 703 kph at 7600 meters

How does our FB one do ?

From posts it seems to depend on who you are and how you atart your run. Maybe on your definition of level and how long you have to wait for the guage to stop falling after you dive. Were speed tests approached from above or below max speed officially? It has to make a difference because if you let the engine cool and then dive before you go for max thrust then you will have much more heat reserve than someone running up from cruise or slower in level only flight.

With what the Chimp brought up about the cooling system, it should work more efficiently (less drag) the faster you go so in a dive faster than top level speed it would give an edge in energy-drag equilibrium that maybe never dies in level flight. If official tests were made starting from dives then the P-51 as reported may be too fast but if they were made as totally level runs then the speeds are probably right.

My guess is that 1C probably knows how the tests were done (most likely stated explicitly in a NACA document) and modelled the plane to suit.

It reaches 760km/h at 7620m, radiators closed, 110% throttle. The listed speed, is attainable through both level acceleration and the 'dive-and-let-speed-settle' method.

Such speed will be not possible to achive in final build.
That is due to not finished supercharger model for that plane in 1.2b

ki84 can rundown the mustang with radiator open till 6000m, it has a stronger dm and climb also. Will you model a gsuit for the pilot blackouts we should get about an extra G a little less before blacking out if you plan to add one in for the mustang. Funny you dont hear any ki84 whiners its all mustang whines and now olegs gunna kill it like the p40 and hurricane which .303s are horably underpowered . Some funky recoil with the p51d guns too and super weak dm like the zero and mig, seems you need to make the oil cooler a bit smaller the engine dies to easy from tail shots

The zero fm and dm from seem .50s seem weakish 109s rip apart easier I understand its beta and right now they game has a good feel with the exception of the p40 which as you said you might have modeled 50 lbs of stick pressure for all surfaces on that plane. also should the p40 overheat that quick on 90 trottle and 85 pitch? overheat timing and max Im sure you will look at it everything else seems good except the 262 at high alt 7000+ which is a bug im sure you been told about

I think this is the best WIP so far 1.2b oleg and it seems to have brought fun back to the sim for me.

As I know the jug speeds corresponds to NACA and USAAF spec. And as I know asked to correct Roll rate was done in 1.11 it rolls even a bit better than should really.
Just drag of "radiator" will be decreased in 1.2.

Recoil modelled acourding real digits of recoil. So we get it as complex calculations of recoil, aerodynamcis of the planes and weight of the plane as well.

However listen to the mass people we would like to change a bit that recoil of the wings located MGS to smaller numbers.

I disagre with that , but people want it too much. I hear it too often.

Some people were saying P-47 recoil was causing much yaw and that was too much. Like the guns on one side fire before the other side, not all at once.

Does the sim have recoil from both sides at once, evenly?

It's not about how much, it's about how even I've seen. Is this real?

Yeah thats the thing, it seemed to yaw always to one direction when firing. You'd figure being shaken around quite a bit by the guns but always in one direction was strange. I figured it out by mis-aiming and hoping the spray was pushed up onto the target.

So the Mustang is a bit too fast at the moment? How much slower should it be?

Thanks for answering all the questions Oleg. Nice to see you around!

All makes sense. I think guns jamming occasionally may be modeled - or possibly it was unnoticed damage - but one or more guns will fail on one side and you'll see yaw. I did notice yaw to one side in the p47 - but no others. Sorry to see them falsely tuned due to whineage - but understand.

Nagual, brand new plane, by itself, firing yaws to the right (in the case of P-47). ALWAYS. No matter how much, or how little you fire. You're gonna claim that makes sense? o_0 Does it even on the ground, and at any speed.

That's with both sets firing, and just the trigger (I think, hardly ever fire one set at a time). The other set when fired by itself will yaw it to the left, but not nearly as much.

And BTW - skepticism is healthy. You might wanna try it sometime (uniformly that is, not picking and choosing when to be).

ive noticed on multi gun planes like p47 hurricane etc u guns fire in same order
u often have one gun with ammo left after others are emputy, usaly on right wing
ive no idea if its acruate or not /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
if u wanna test this, do several bursts till u run out of ammo

The radiator being open was what was slowing me down so bad, I will just have to manage the cooling better, maybe pretend it is a 109. :-)

The 'glass jaw' was no different than any other a/c that used glycol for cooling.

I am not able to match your speed numbers in either level flight or with a shallow dive. Only a steeper dive would with a settle in would give me close to that speed.

Would you mind making a quick track showing the P51 developing that speed in both level flight @ 7620m and from a shallow dive ?

All I know is the P51 (all avg) against (FW190-A9 with cannon) and (ME262 default) knocked all of the german aircraft but one FW190-A9 in the Berline mission I created. But, many B17g's fell before the FW's and ME's got theirs.

I now understand why germany lost the war around Berlin. In creating the mission I find that the airfields around Berlin did not allow the german aircraft to reach the height necessary to do battle before the B17g's dropped the bombs. No matter what I tried they couldn't get to 5000meters fast enough and when they got there the P51's were waiting on top.

The mission generator with the aircraft parameters duplicates the frustration the Germans had during the last year of the War.

All fellow jug pilots, please try this. When you take off, get up to speed before you climb out, or at least once you reach cruise alt. Hit the F12 and let it trim the plane out level, then turn it off by hitting the F12 again. Do not add any trim. Keep your IAS over 200 during the attack and you will see much less or no yaw when firing.

sorry for the sig, had to do it once more. If anybody has a skin like this, please send it to me at abonedoc@absquad.net or send the addy for it.

Certainly, Kahuna.

Note that the speed is 760km/h TAS, so the speed bar will show something like 400 IAS or so in the cockpit, so be sure you're not confused about this.

As I don't have a posting space, I'll have to ask for you e-mail address were I to send it to you.

If you go to the non cockpit with gauges view, won't it show IAS on the speed bar and TAS on the left side gauge?

Also, does anybody know if 1.2 makes the FW a little more vulnerable to MGs? As it is now, it takes an inappropriate amount of MG and still flys like nothing is wrong.

Ahhh don't do that what a slippery slope. If you had data to suggest the recoil effect (yaw, deceleration etc) was less than calculations suggest, then fine - some kinds of coding like biology always fix a process function if real is known for instance, however when the empirical truth is unknown stick with the calc I say
