I looked up teh tempest V speeds in a book that i have called: The complete book of fighters by William Green and Gordon Swanborough. They state that the top speed of the tempest is 700kph at 5.1180m. In the game you can reach the same speed(but not without serious overheat).
The sealevel speed is 631kph. The tempest in the game only does just over 600, again with serious overheat. This date is for the Tempest V with the Sabre IIa engine.

with the prop pitch exploit our ingame tempest 9lbs will go faster than that.

Prop pitch exploit should be fixed. Ignore that and the Tempests top speed is pretty decent but the overheat is way over the top. The Tempest overheats quicker than anything else in the game.

I've compensated for that in my flight style (rads open most of the time and prop pitch strictly controlled) and learned its nuances but its a bit to get into.

About the +11lb...despite the best efforts of many in the community who are interested in the Tempest there are no charts that have been so far dug up on the +11lb Sabre IIb performance (most common configuration ironically). There's a few charts here and there but no graphs found so far that cover from top to bottom climb rate, top speed (in both gears), and so forth.

Just tested it on the Crimea map- got 360 out of her at sea level, which pretty much spot on.

Really? Well, lets see who is the stupid one here..

1) I asked you for a track (ie Got Track).
2) You said you did NOT have a track file.
3) I said I just knew you didnt have a track file.

And your calling me stupid and dont read well? Son, you better slow down, take a deep breath, count to ten or something. Becaues if anyone here is stupid and can not read, it would be you. SAVVY?
