This is an experimental sticky thread.

If you have an interesting WW2 aircraft, aero engine, or airwar related chart or table then please post it here. The idea is to build up some reference material. If it doesn't work as intended then so be it.

Some guidelines:

* If you post a chart or table then please include a source or reference.

* Don't paste lots of copyright material (most countries allow snippets as fair use but no more.)

* Don't post comments unless it is a translation of a chart. If you do post a translation then reference the original chart or table in the thread.

* If you want to reference a chart in a discussion then you can use the little pinboard icon (top left) for a post and obtain the URL.

Does anyone know where I can find comparative performance charts on Italian WW2 aircraft. I have often wondered what the actual differences are between the C205 G55 and Re2005 for example.

A German report in the subject:
Bericht über Jagdflugzeug-Vergleichsfliegen bei der ital. E-Stelle G u i d o n i a .

In der Zeit vom 18.2.1943 bis 21.2.1943 wurde in Guidonia ein Vergleichsfliegen deutscher und italienischer Flugzeuge durchgeführt. Von Jagdflugzeugen waren zum Vergleich mit Bf 109 G 4 und Fw 190 A 5 folgende Flugzeuge vorhanden : Macchi 205 V, Macchi 205 N, Reggiane 2005 und Fiat G 55.

Shows the multiple convergence settings of the 8 .50 cals on a P-47.

A good reference for setting gun convergence.

Can someone check tailwheel.nl out. Google shows it as being unsafe and Kaspersky has it blocked as unsafe in last 30 days. Feel free to delete this after you check it out. Thanks

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you read the end of the report, it is stated that the Corsair:

1. Was run accidently on "auto lean" instead of "auto rich" during WEP testing.

2. The Corsair had the wrong prop installed.

3. Greater values in speed and climb would have resulted for the Corsair during testing.

The Corsair had the wrong prop installed.

It did not have an newer production propeller installed. Having "the wrong propeller" installed is a death sentence in aircraft.

S! Everyone


This site has some very resourceful info about Bf/Me109


http://109lair.hobbyvista.com/index1024.htm



From what I read there, I arranged some of its data:



Bf109 is designed to have the biggest engine to fit in the smallest air frame.



DB605A: close redesigned DB601A, increased RPM to boost hp, 4 valves: 2 intake + 2 exhuast, supercharger effective up to 18,000ft (Take off power 1.42ata 1475hp 2800rpm sea level, Max power 1.42ata 1355hp 2800rpm 18,700ft, Climbing 1.3ata 1310hp 2600rpm sea level -> 1.3ata 1250 2600rpm 19,000ft, Maximum cruising 1.15ata 1075hp 2300rpm sea level - 1.15ata 1080hp 2300rpm 18,000ft) fuel consumption 0.473 lb/hp*hr maximum cruising sea level



DB605AS: enlarged with DB603's supercharger effective up to 26,200ft (Taket off power 1.42ata 1435hp 2800rpm at sea level. Max power 1.42ata 1200hp 2800rpm at 26,200ft. Climbing 1.3ata 1275hp 2600rpm from sea level -> 1.3ata 1150hp 2600rpm to 25,600ft. Maximun crusing power 1.25ata 1075hp 2400rpm at sea level - 1.15ata 1050hp 2400rpm at 25,200ft)



DB605ASM: larger oil cooler, added MW50/50 device with C3 fuel maximun rated 1.7ata 1800hp, can use B4 fuel while MW50 is a must to achieve max hp

DB605ASB: sub varity of DB605ASM with selective fuel B4, maximun rated 1.8ata 1850hp

DB605ASC: sub varity of DB605ASM with selective fuel C3, maximun rated 1.98ata 2000hp



DB605D: larger oil tank, redesigned valve train, 1 intake + 2 exhaust valves total 3 valve design, max 1.7ata supercharger effective up to 6.8km

DB605DB: max 1.8ata 1850hp with MW50/50 B4 fuel (Take off power 1.8ata 1800hp 2800rpm sea level, Max power 1.98ata 1530hp 2800rpm 19,600ft, Climbing 1.3ata 1275hp 2600rpm sea level -> 1.3ata 1150hp 2600rpm 25,600ft, Maximum cruising 1.15ata 1075hp 2400rpm sea level - 1.15ata 1050hp 2400rpm 25,200ft)

DB605DC: max 1.98ata 2000hp(?) with MW50/50 C3 fuel, without MW50 max hp is at 1.45ata (Take off power 1.98ata 1800hp 2800rpm sea level, Max power 1.98ata 1800hp 2800rpm 16,700ft)
