Anyone have charts of tests they did of the different aircraft in this game?

I fly by the numbers, did some tests myself in wwiionline, but i'll be damed if im going to test out 200 different aircraft with 10 different loadouts. Did someone already do these tests?

Thank you heavy weather, but all of that info is already in view-objects/aircraft in the offline game. I was looking for more detailed charts, sawtooth climb graphs and the such.

Flying by the numbers can get you killed, in addition to the other things common to fighting in the virtual skies. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A climb chart for one a/c in a desert map might be quite differnt if it's flying in a deep Russian winter steppe map.

However, knowing at which speed to enter a fight that works best for you comes with experiance, and there's no chart that can sum it up.

Don't get frustrated, there's quite a few that have come over from WWIIonline. Ask around, I bet they'd love to help out a fellow convert.

Welcome, and enjoy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Oh, and IL2Compare (http://www.simhq.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=127;t=001038;p=) can give you a good idea about how a/c perform, but be aware some things are not possible to duplicate acording to the chart. It can give you an impression about the a/c's performance envelope, but it's up to you which corners get filled out, according to your ability and fighting style. Good luck and
