I have noticed that the P47 D10 and D22 now have a decent roll rate but the D27 bubble canopy plane is much slower at rolling. Is this accurate or is it a bug.

Fixed largely in 1.21. The 1.11 had a huge disparity between them...now its much less. You'll also notice that the D-27 rolls much faster with a 25% fuel load than with a full fuel load.

But overall perfomance of all 3 models still falls short of the bar with the D-10 showing the best improvement.

Actually, I had been flying the D-10 almost exclusively, and the other day did an acceleration and top speed test between the razorbacks, mostly. The bubble top is not a stable gun platform, without the ridged tail introduced in later models. The -22 out accelerates and has a higher top end than the -10 at 1000m, now. Before the paddle was modeled correctly, only the higher drag of the pylons was correct, hampering the -22 speed. Now its faster, and has become my Jug of choice. I don't remember the exact differance, but it was around 25-40 kph faster, and can carry a good mudmoving load. Even the drag of the rocket tubes has been reduced, so that they don't castrate your speed to the point of being worthless to carry. Just my observations, your mileage may vary. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
