Not at sea level that's for sure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Let me tell you what changed...

583km/hr at SL

713km/hr at 6800 meters!

Have no idea if climb changed at all, but top end speed at or near its critical altitude is now just about spot on....that is 445.6mph but I don't know if that is its critical altitude...but it should be real close.

She's rockin' up high! Much faster! I'm not sure if it's because of the extra speed, or if the high alt fm was fixed, but she's a dream to fly above 25k.... nothing can touch her. I think the fat girl is zoom climbing better these days too.

As Robert Johnson described in a copy of an interview posted here last year, if you're co-e or higher with the guy on your tail, a sharp pull up to the left, into a spiral climb, and the bandit falls away..... this is possible now against 109's.... perhaps it's due to the reduced elevator authority on the 109's? Not sure, but its super hip!

so if i understand correctly - speed has been increased at low and high alts?

I couldn't find my notes, but I don't think the low altitude speed was changed.

The 4.02 D-27 will go 575 on the deck, so the hot rod isn't much faster there...but it is faster up high. The 4.02 P-47D was slower at 7000 meters than the D-27 IIRC.

The Jug is a beast up high, and that suits me down to the boots

Seems to have ditched the hotcake 2800 also for a real P&W. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
