I made some AI speed tests using the FMB, with following results :

Crimea map, alt 4000 m, maximum speed set in FMB for

He 111 H2 : 405 kph
Ju 88 A4 : 445 kph
Tu2s : 547 kph
Hs129B2 : 440 kph

All planes with 50 % except Hs129 with 100 % fuel

I know this is only the theorical maximum speed, but I expected planes would fly at their maximum speed, according to altitude and everything, whatever it is.

I found out that :

- either loaded with bombs or not, Ju88 and He111 fly almost at the same speed (default loadout or 20xSC70 for He111 and 28xSC50 for Ju88) after flying straight for more then 50 km the He111 stays very close to the Ju88

- the Hs129, even with 100% fuel is way faster than the Tu2s !

According to the object viewer, the Ju88 should be significantly faster than the He111, and the Tu2 way faster than the Hs129.

Well using the AI was your first mistake. Never in the last three years has the AI made any sense. The AI in the game doesn't have complete flight models so doing an accurate flight test using the AI is practially impossible.

Hs129, JU88 and Tu2 are AI only

I didn't expect an accurate complex FM for AI planes, but neither I expected such weirdness in basic flight speed
