  1. Well any tips on this would be gratefully received.. Thanks in advance๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. Really AA, "Me 262 pilots claimed a total of 542 Allied aircraft shot down,[7] although higher claims are sometimes made.[Note 1] The Allies countered its effectiveness in the air by attacking the aircraft on the ground and during takeoff and landing". I mean if we're going to to claim realistic let's have them sitting in storage or at least no airstarts? ๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. I agree.. No fun at all with the 262s and nothing allied available to keep up. At very best just annoying! Lets have some Meteors over there or at very least some Griffon Spitfires. Maybe not so authentic, but then neither is not being able to attack Axis 262s in storage as per reality. In the meantime, I'm trying find a way to import my F-15, FA-18 etc from DCS.. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜….. Same difference anyway lol.
  4. Very true, but more weight also increases turning circle hence 34 seconds when fully loaded.
  5. Correct, but I've also gained 54m in altitude +14.3%, so overall yes a slight energy loss. Either way, the results are not intended to re write the in game spec, but merely a guide to show it's not a good idea to get into a downward or level turn fight with a 262 who's burnt some fuel.
  6. I see, my mistake. You are using the right file, just you stated m/s instead of km/h as per my original and cockpit guages. Thank you anyway for your volantary, but positive contribution Andy, I am sure it will be most welcome elsewhere.
  7. I'm guessing you're not looking at the correct file? I have re attached here, but may I suggest you have a go. ME262 TRT.zip
  8. That was a circling test, with my limited flying skill. The particular circle I mentioned was one of many. Some slightly incling, some declining, but on average the same 20s ish result. I am no test pilot, but I recon someone who can hold that plane steady as a rock would get similar results. Either way, I've answered my original post and got a much better understanding of how the 262 flys.
  9. As posted earlier.. "If you look at 1min 28 in the Tacview file it did indeed maintain at least a 360ยฐ turn at 18ยฐ/ s gaining altitude" It was a 'constant' as I could fly and good enough for me.
  10. Then I have witnested sub 20s with 770l of fuel. If I meet one in a turn fight its probably not the elephant I was expecting
  11. Sustained as in for how long? Tbh, I'm not even sure what your point is anymore and I have answered my original post question.
  12. I appologise..my claim for the 262 being able to sustain a 20s circle on an incline was actualy at 360km/h and with 30% fuel. That is still 770 litres compared to the 120l used in the equivialent Spitfire test. I understand jet engines power to weight ratio is a lot less than a prop engine at low speeds so interesting results anyway. I see your point for measuring sustained circling, but the ingame spec says 'Maxiumum perofrmance turn'. To me a turn is 180ยฐ, so it would be interesting to know the method behind their measurment though.
  13. From my experience, the plane sustains turns in sub 20s at around 300km/s, not the 34s at 450 km/s published.
  14. I understand the sustainability of the turn aspect, but my point is the plane is much more agile than I would have expected wherever the speed/ energy is coming from. UFO!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Yes I tried the 109-G4..I have no experience in the plane, but with 30% fuel, I could keep a horizontal loop of 18-20s going at around 270km/h. The spec says 21s, so agin not far off and the Spitfire has the slight edge.๐Ÿ’ช It's the 262 spec or FM that seems way off each other.
  15. As per my original post, I am indeed very suprised as my perception of the maximum performace turn specification is wrong. I am not sure why it's quoting best performance turn time of 32-35s at 450km/h when it can sustain at least a full turn in more like 20s. (If you look at 1min 28 in the Tacview file it did indeed maintain at least a 360ยฐ turn at 18ยฐ/ s gaining altitude). In comparison, the Spitfire data shows somethig like a 18s turn time at 270km/h, which is about as good as it gets. I didn't know how much I didn't know about flight before looking into this ๐Ÿคฃ
