IL2

In a dive or whatever...

In any plane...

MPH, Feet per second...

meh ... thought you meant in real life ... which on the road is about 135 mph on my old feral 900 and in the air whatever speed a 767 cruises at altitude.

Its not really a biggie in IL2 because the FM gets wacky at high altitudes and speeds.

840-ish Kph in a Ki-61 during a steep dive for a skip bombing run on a destoyer. Leveled out really carefully, killed the destoyer ( USS Ward class ) but lost an aileron. Made a successful RTB with a nice smooth landing. Happened on a now defunct Japanese server on HL. ( "Inchiki Dameyo" )

I ought to try a P-47 just for an all-time record.

On the road, 110.6 MPH trap speed at a 1/4 drag strip in a warmed over '94 Z-28 I used to own. Never wanted to test the legal system to try for more on a public road.

You can fly the Dora 44, one of the late P47's and a couple of other models through the sound barrier.

1200-1250 kph in a P-47 dive from 10,500M.

I think the Do-335 is capable as well.

Why don't we see who can go the fastest in IL2?
With say, some rules like:
*Must be below 200 Meters ASL
*You can use any non-mod plane you want
*Must be on realistic settings
*Flying straight and level

Its just an idea.

Actually, it doesn't. It wins in the thrust department for sure, but at ~760kph IAS, it violently nose dives. I've never gotten it above about 850kph IAS because of that.

Impossible. Mach tuck would prevent any version of the BI from going over approx 750-60 kph in level flight.

In real life-On land,158 mph in my modded vette on I-35-verified by Texas highway patrol radar. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif
In the air-however fast it takes a DC-10 to takeoff in the thin air at Denver.
It felt like at least 200mph on take-off,and that big wide-body used the whole runway.
On water-Right at 60,in a friend's family Cigarette boat,on Lake Travis.

In IL-2 1000kph+ til my Meteor started breaking up in a dive.

Other than facing off with jets, its not really a useful speed.
Id still rather the plane top out at its terminal velocity which is closer to 1000km and keep its wings on and stay intact.
(580-620IAS, probably depends on many more factors, but for the context of the game)
But having that extra 200kph is a nice to have if i need to push it, and risk damaging the plane.

Only cos transonic flight is simply not modeled in the game at all in any fashion.

Top speeds in IL2 are not really relevant to anything whatsoever.

IRL: 130 MPH in a friends 76 Dodge Charger in 1980 heading west on WA St highway 14. I was in the back seat scared half to death thinking about how good of condition the tires were in. Five of us teenagers were in the car.


And uh, my body flying through the air: 130 MPH to zero in about five seconds as I leaped from a perfectly good U.S. AirForce C-141 Starlifter somewhere near Fort Benning Georgia USA on my very-first jump in Airborne school January 1992.
http://www.aviationexplorer.com/c-141_facts.htm


In IL2:
I am still working on that:
I am testing different PISTON Engined AC and trying to see how fast I can fly from the Berlin Airfield 270 Right strip, to Gatow Airfield tower several miles to the emediate west.

In IL2, about 1050 but it was a long time ago so I don't recall the exact figure.

In real life:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>On land, about 250km/h (approx 155mph) on my old GPz1100 Kawasaki (legal, it was on a racetrack) and just under that in a Mitsubishi Starion as a passenger.
<LI>On water, probably not more than about 70km/h (45mph) in a friend's ski boat.
<LI>Airborne, whatever speed a DC10, 737, 727 or maybe an Airbus 318/320 cruises at. Highest of those was probably the DC10 as that was a trans-Pacific trip and all the others were commuter hops. Not sure about the airbus, I stopped paying attention to what the local airlines fly us in about 15 years ago.[/list]

IRL:

On the road: 120mph in my old Audi A4, 145mph in a buddies IS350 (while I was driving). Only been up to 100mph in my current 240Z (started lifting WAY too much for comfort at the front)
On the water: ~20knots in a modified (Asymmetrical spinnaker + 8ft spinnaker pole) E-scow. Or ~40knots in power boats
In the air: However fast trans atlantic or SFO-Boston flights are.

RL: In a train, 285kph (178mph) on a Deutsche Bahn (of course!) InterCity connection.
While driving myself, about 270-275kph (170mph)with my old v-twin. Haven't had a pleasure to drive a fast car yet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

IRL...

145 mph on 2 wheels riding a Honda VFR

4 wheels 130 mph in a '68 Mustang GT as verified by the Arizona Highway Patrol

Single engine prop 190 mph in a Mooney Statesman

Probobly 550 mph or so in the cabin of a commercial jet.

In the Game...

1060 kph true in a P47 diving from 8000 meters.

As a side note the uber dive speed superiority of '44 Dora is a myth. It loses parts at the same speed as the '45 Dora or P51 for that matter, between 920 and 960 kph true.

What does post count have to do with anything? You think its some kind of rank structure? Some kind of indication of IL2 knowledge? Proves your loyalty to the game?

I know people that have been flying IL2 as long as I have (since 2001) and only have a dozen post or so. Some have never even created an account here.

I am really confused why you would post such a comment to a forum member.
