The 190 has never been a dogfighter in the il2 series.

One of my standard QMB practice loads 16 of whatever I am in vs 16 yak3s. Settings are full real with padlock. All AI is set on the highest skill level.

I was amazed to chase a Yak3 through three complete loops in the FW190A4, catch him on the bottom of a loop and shoot him down. I did not flame or smoke him but must have got some controls because he hit the ground on the bottom of the last loop.

I would never have done this a few days ago, or a few months ago. I was never that practised in the 190.

It looks like finally the 190 has got a flight model that will make it perform in the sim as it did in the history books.

190 pilots rejoice!

So, you joined a Yak in a loop fight with a 190?

The 190 climb has been dragged down even further due to engine overheat and now its a turn fighter? I don't get it. The 190 should outclimb the turners like early Yaks, the Spit V and the P-40. The 190 should never survive a turn/loop fight with them.

This 190 fan is not happy with the revised FM.

I am sure that when I go against well flown yak3s online against non-AI foes I will be eaten alive.

Historically the 190 was preffered the majority of luftwaffe pilots so it must have performed in all areas at least competently.

Now it does, where before even the best online fw pilots had a lot of trouble evading and getting out of trouble in it. Now they might have another option besides diving away into the clouds. If they are low they now have a chance to do something dogfight style.

Cool! maybe I will fly the 190 online a little more now. I will at least give it a good try.

S!
