There are many reports like;

COMBAT TRIALS AGAINST FW.190 (BMW.801D)

Turning Circles
41. There is very little difference in turning circles between the two aircraft. If anything a very slight advantage lies with the Tempest.

COMBAT TRIALS AGAINST Me.109G
Turning Circle
47. The Tempest is slightly better, the Me.109G being embarrassed by its slots opening near the stall.


The FW is supposed to be a better turner than the Me-109G?



If there are other comparing tests or scientific figures, please post links showing real-life figures of drag, thrust, results of comparing tests, of WWII prop-fighters.

The best Tempest was V2...it had a radial engine and no radiator inlet beneath the nose.
