I need input from the community on these to help me get my bearings on these questions, apparently I am enough out of touch with things in this sim I cannot answer them for myself. Thanks in advance!

True or False:

In this flight sim, under 5000m alt,

1. When comparing the Tempest to FW190 models, the FW190 closest to armament and performance of the Tempest is the 190 A-4.

2. All bf109 models after the G-6 are faster than the Tempest.

3. The Tempest is slower than all the FW190 models.


Again, thanks in advance for your time and trouble.

1. False. A-6/A-8/A-9 would be closest.
2. Depends on altitude.
3. False. It's generally equal or slightly slower than the D-9s but faster than any Anton.

Same answers as above I think.


I can run from 44 Doras as long as I dont climb.

I havent really flown the Tempest properly yet, just messing about with it on servers late at night.

This Tempest is faster than the Dora at certain heights, and slower at others. At 18,000ft I can get 440mph out of it which I think makes it the fastest prop plane in this sim at that height.

1) No, the closest comparison would be the FW190D-9 or A-9. Its sort of sandwiched in between the two for overall firepower, speed, and performance. The Tempest +9lb that we have is generally faster above 1500m than both of them. On the deck its a bit slower than the D-9 and I think the A-9 as well. Need to check that...

2) Nope...Tempest is faster than most of them except maybe the G-10 at some altitudes and the K-4 at some altitudes.

3) Err no.

1. I'd say the Fw 190A-9 is the closest in armament and performance. Though the Tempest certainly is the superior fighter in this comparison.

2.Maybe at high altitude. Not at low and medium alts.

3. No, the D-9 is the only 190 that can match the speed(and climb) of the Tempest.

Take a look at my test, I tested the tempest there
