Yes i know this plane never flew etc but lots of guys like you do it on 46 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

anyway what i was thinking is this, i like to know the basics for the Ta-183, what are the best climb speeds and cruiseing speeds etc.. hope you can help me in this http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

cheers.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

There won't be any published numbers, given the plane never existed.

But in my experience, it seems to require the same procedures as a Me-262. Thrust at low speed is poor, so speeds from 450-500 km/h are good for a climb.

At a guess, it probably cruises most efficiently high and fast. Say 7000m or more, and 600km/h true or more.

Jets give roughly constant thrust over their speed range.

Piston engined fighters OTOH give roughly constant power over their speed range.

Power = thrust * velocity

Therefore, jets like to fly fast!

The Ta-183 is just like a 190, but more so. Get fast, and stay fast. Use your roll rate to advantage.

Make slashing attacks, taking deflection shots rather than wasting energy to gain the perfect angle.

Never slow below 400 km/h except for takeoff and landing.

Speed is life!

Learn to use the X-4 - it's a great weapon against unsuspecting bandits!

I always keep any jet at around 90% thrust since it gives plenty of speed and overheating is less likely. If she starts to overheat, just pick up some speed and the engine will cool off. Now if I could only learn how to use the X-4 as a GUIDED weapon...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Freude am fahren!
