    well the spit vb we have ingame is slower than raf ones, by 40 kph at sl, and 20kph at high alt.

    Yeah, I agree, both the Spit Vb and the Fw190A4 are too slow.

    Not all, but most of the commonly used.

    I don't have real data for planes I'm afraid.

    Robban,

    I'd love to see a P-51D and Dora SL speed comparison at 25% fuel.


    (poor Robban, every time he posts a test we ask for more)

    He he, not to worry, I enjoy doing these tests!

    Anyways, there's no dramatic change in speeds at 25% fuel.

    Thanks Robban! So, we still have a 5mph safety advantage in the Dora! Do the '44 and '45 Dora still have similar SL speeds?

    The Fw190A9s seem to be fairly close to the Dora/P-51 at SL too.

    Don't ever climb vs a Spit, there interceptors and climbing is what there built for. You should be able to roll and dive to get out there way, if nothing else use that huge roll advantage to shake them off and that straight line speed, the A5 is very quick on the deck. Are you using the manual prop pitch? That gives a nice performance gain also. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Yeah WOLF is right. Fw190 rolls like my grandma was rolling on dancing floor some 45-50 years ago.

    Unlike Fw190, Spit has a poor roll rate, and that is IMO the biggest Fw190 advantage over Spit.

    That one is hard to read through the engine fire.
