New acceleration tests

Crimeia, sea level:

time from 300 to 400 kph and time from 300 to 500 kph

All speeds in IAS

P38L 15s 48,8s
p38L-late 12,5s 37,2s
fw190a9 14,4 39,8s
Fw190D9 11,3 36,4
Mustang III 12,0 34,5
bf109K4 11,4 33,0

In the Anton case I had some trouble keeping rudder centered.. so I think with pedal I could gain another .5 seconds http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Mustang III is waaay too good, in the 3-400 kph range, especially compared to the P-38...

La7 can do it in 9 seconds :P Later today I will test spitfires, other P51, P47, bf109g2 109A4 etc.. Also will try makinbg a more precise FW190A9 measurement.

LA-7 was both extremely fast at SL, and had very high power to weight ratio.. similiar to 109K but even faster.. means low drag. no surprise here.
Getting the things higher up will turn the tables, but dont fight the LA-7 below 2000 at all... by far the best fighter there!

But the Mustang, altough very aerodynamic, thrust to weight was not at all impressive, and even according to America`s hundred thousend, acceleration was avarage.

you don´t have to teach me how to fly against La7. The curious thing on LA7 is that it bahaves diferently from other planes.. it acceolerates faster and faster as speed icreases.. then sudenly it stop accelerating (at max speed) as like a brick wall in front of it.

No, LA7 should not have such acceleration behavior.. no plane could do it. No sense a plane accelerate better at all speed range (from 0 to very last kph.. better and better at higher speeds)and have inferior final speed (compare to Dora).
