Been reading WWII bomber pilot stories and it seems that the engine's slipstreams from the Lancasters or Wellington bombers use to knock the hell out of ME-109 fighters, seems their tactic was to do corkscrews with them on their six and the turbulance would rattle them to the point of disengaging the fight. I will be posting some exerpts from these stories, very interesting stuff from these 20 year old kids, as well it seems they use to say the word "F_CK" all the time.

It's not the engine slipstream, it's wake turbulance caused by the wings and the lift they produce. This site gives a good explanation:-

Is this modeled in FB?

Dear Typhoonmk1b,

Who are you? You wrote the same "CWOS" message in at least 5 or 6 threads in these last minutes. Now, if you think that what you're reading is CWOS, just leave that thread and the forum, and keep such comments for yourself.
Otherwise, I feel that if you keep sending such useful posts, you are the one "CWOSing".
Be more constructive.

Regards,

...mmmmm, I don't think so... he has "infiltrated" everywhere with these useless "CWOS" posts.
Anyway, I already forgot him.

I think it is modeled. I've blown by other fighters and bombers and been in a turn and have had my a/c buffeted by the wake turbelence. And no I wasn't pulling the a/c to the point of a stall either.

Don't forget about Wingtip Vortices; Little Horizontal Tornados responsible for killing many Cesna Pilots.

Sometimes I suddenly stall if I get into the slipstream of another fighter as it passes by in the head-on merge in Qucik Missions... could be the turbulance? Perhaps. At least there`s difficulty setting for "wind and turbulance".
