Which one of the F4Us and Corsairs is the fastest in the game? How does this compare with the F6Fs? Trying to find the fastest to dive away and maintain speed to escape most of the japanease planes. Some of the F4Us seem to be slow at this.

I don't know which is the fastest Corsair but most sources say the Corsair was slightly faster than the Hellcat. There is a really interesting flight journal article though in which Grumman flew both A/C next to one another and found their performance to be almost equal. The Grumman engineers then tried to move the pitot tube to give both aircraft the same indicated speed. Story could just be BS who knows.

As far as running from the Japanese planes, especailly in a dive, works decently online but offline the zeroes just seem to stick with the Corsairs. This dive acceleration problem has always sort of been in the game, just need to compensate for it and enjoy the challenge.
