    so the 1942 Spitfire MkVb in FB has the top speed of a 9 Lb boosted RL Spitfire MkVb ?

    what was the top speed of a RL 1.42 ATA FW-190 A4 ?

    Here's for the A-3, but it's the same as A-4.

    AFAIK it`s SL speed is too low, and at altitude it`s too fast.

    Last I heard all planes except for the FW190 have a better climb rate in IL2 then they had in RL.

    What's worse is the extreme angle of climb that can be performed by planes such as Spit's, 109's Yak's and La's.
    I can climb at an 40-45 degree angle at 150-170km/h with Spitfire IXc from SL up to 5000m without having to use any rudder input at all. This can be replicated with the Bf 109, La series and the Yak-3 aswell. I have a track were I do a loop in the Spit IXc with an entry speed of just 230km/h.

    yep u can do that now, planes dont lose speed or something as quick as they once did, so u can bnz a 109k4, and he will point nose up and climb upto u!, after u bnz from 1k to 700metres advantage onto him (full throttle)

    oh its really bad for ki43 drivers, cos they need/use the low speed climb advantage

    well i do anyways
