Do any of the testers out there - you know who you are ! have any IL2 test speeds ?

I tried a few yesterday but they were godawful I managed to get 540km/h with rocket racks 75% fuel 110% and WEP at sea level.

Radiator open? supercharger at stage 1? Check your rudder trim? It will do just under 600kph on the deck an near 700kph at altitude. You will have to wait until the engine almost explodes if your trying to achieve this in level flight though. Rocket rails won't do you any favours either.

Putting them on the Tempest, while correct as they were approved, but never used, is a travesty! Use your 20mm's :P

They look ugly with the rails poking out from under their wings. I like attacking artillery and tanks with the Rockets and then mopping up with the cannons. Was the Typhoon that much slower than the Tempest at low altitudes? Oleg could reduce the poly count on the Tempest by 75% and we would end up with a Typhoon lookalike anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Rad open to stage 4 Supercharger 1 for the run and I didnt fire my rockets either. I wasnt going to let some pesky Messerschmidt ruin my run at the Blue ground targets.

yeah, the game doubles or tripples or even more, the drag that bombs/rockets and racks give u IRL.

the do335 is really quick with bombload cos of its internal bomb bay.

and ull haveto wait for merlin 25's on the mossie http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
