its not true :/ ever try to roll a Pe-8 the one in the video was a tailslide not an actual roll. P-47 does a faster tailslide than that. jeez you guys an whineing about the P-47, its pretty darn close to real if you ask me. gotta remember the P-47 was the heavyest fighter in WW2 it wornt turn like a zero

"its pretty darn close to real if you ask me. gotta remember the P-47 was the heavyest fighter in WW2 it wornt turn like a zero"

Remember that the complaints are the roll rate, which has almost NOTHING to do with the "turning" ability..

The roll rate on the Jug is wrong.. its not 10% or 15% wrong..its closer to 50%-100% wrong in some cases..

People can whine all they want about "Their" pet planes, it happens in every game.. Many people read a novel about a pilot and he mentioned "I turned inside that guy and shot him down" and to them, that means plane X turns better than plane Y.. which is just ignorance http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Understand HOW to test planes, learn the differecee between IAS and TAS, convert KPH to MPH, standardize loadouts, and perform tests according to some rough guidelines to try and insure some consistancy.

There isn't a plane in FB that has a flight model with 95% of its real life equivelant.. but a lot of the planes are close to that under normal combat conditions which is a great thing.

The BIG problem with the P47 is that in the 300-400MPH range the roll rate is WAY off.. dramatically off..

Now, I say that its off.. I am not saying the Jug should outroll most planes modelled in FB.. because it should not.. but at higher speeds it should be competitive with some of them..and right now its not..

Ooooh! How smart! I wonder why I'm playing the game and having fun, when I should be "standardizing loadouts" and performing intellectual labor ev'rytime I run Il-2 FB...

Sounds cool! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It was funny before the patch, but now only P-47 whiners enjoy it. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
