Maybe someone can explain the standards for measuring this.
I put a FW190A9 on the ground (no ammo and 100% fuel). Waited for the clock to strike 12, full throttle, took off and beamed up to 7000m in 9 minutes. (actually 08:50 but who cares about 10 secs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

Is this a bit slow, considering it's from engine idle/takeoff ??

The FW190 was never known for its great climb, however, I beleive that once you get over about 4000 its even worse.

The FW190 was much better mid to low alts than high alts. 7000m is very high. Isnt it about 20,000 feet?

However, for the exact numbers, I am not sure.

Sustained climb... in zoom climb it was great.
