I picked that issue up at the newstand.

The most interesting things to me were:

1. how the 109 lifted from the ground on take off at 160km/hr. I remember using that speed for takeoff all the time in this sim, it just felt right.

The 109 test pilot said the 109 was a match for the spit at low speed turning and manuevers and that it would eat the p-51 alive at lower speeds.

The stall speed of the 190A-4 was twice that of the F4u-1 or Hellcat, and it would easily outclimb them.
S!
