hi,don't know a lot about pacific plane and performance but is the Ki61 that bad in reality
i mean it must have a german engine,and he is as slow as an i16 on horizontal flight and autosettings

is it a bug or is this plane like that in reality?

as we have not a lot of new different japanese fighters to use,this question seems important to me

well lots of ppl confirmed that is weaker than it was in RL (ask them for their sources)....so im sure they will fix that plane soon in one of the future patches http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

it seems to me that the Ki61 has superior soundproofing, the engine seems very quiet

I heard that Oleg said that there was a programming mistake that resulted in the Hien being slower and having less elevator authority than it really did. One of those high-priority fixes.

If you want to test it, acccording to the flight data, it should be faster than a 109E or a P40E and almost keep up with the P38 at 5000 meters altitude. They had between 1100 & 1500 HP depending on the model.
Maybe they modeled the old spark plugs, the swamp water in the cooling system and the mediocre milling tolerences on the crankshaft. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

All I know is that it's a target for my Lighting strike. Hit the Bong!
