  1. I once got shot down by a La flying in parallel with me, about 100m wing to wing. I was actually glad he was overshooting me. Then he started shooting into thin air and he was hitting me. I put it down to heavy desync. Talk about an out of body experience.
  2. I didn't test with invulnerability on, so aiming was certainly affected by this since I did passes just like I would do against a normal opponent which can fire back. This should be much closer to what someone sees on the servers/SP/reality. I used a G6 to conduct my 109 tests, which raises the question why an aircraft with more powerful ammo only manages to bring down 4 bombers, whereas you in a F4 manage to shoot more down, but this could be put down to the test conditions, since your test seems to be more controlled. I ran several 109 tests, and the average revolves around 4 bom
  3. It would be nice if they could use something to elevate his position so he could have a better view around. Maybe not allowed by regulations?
  4. Ok, then from what I can tell by looking at the above tests is that a D-22 when using the same 714-1C2-12 prop will have approx the same speed as the D-10 at 29000ft. It seems the 714-1C2-12 prop removes ~3mph from the max speed when compared to the Hamilton Standard. When compared to the Curtis 836-2C2-18 it seems to add ~6mph. So, the D-22 from the test data you posted would get to around 437mph with the Curtis prop at 29000ft, which is still ~13mph faster than the performance of the D-22 from the ww2 aircraft performance test with the same prop. But then again the D-
  5. Ok, but with different props from the ones in the D-22 test, right? I mean the D-10 performance at 29000ft is close to the D-22 performance at 29000ft when looking at the data from this graph (if we consider the aircraft using the same prop Curtiss 836-2C2-18) : Your data also indicates that their performance was close at the same alt and same boost. Does the data you posted above show speeds for aircraft using the same prop?
  6. Well, I couldn't find much info on how the regulators worked. But I can also see a regulator being optimized for a certain range of altitudes and different models being able to regulate the waste gates for different altitudes. It's all assumptions, unfortunately.
  7. Yes, already noted the different engines. The only difference between the two seems to be the ignition system (magnetos). That could probably explain the difference in performance at the same altitude. Also, the supercharger ratio seems to be different, which could also account for the different FTH.
  8. You are right, however the difference between the D-10 and the D-22 is that they don't have the same turbo regulator. Unfortunately I have not found any spec for them, so I can't say whether the turbo regulators have an impact on FTH for 56"Hg or not. The only documented difference is that the turbo regulator on the D-22 is needed to run 64", which is not possible with the one on the D-10.
  9. Water doesn't increase the FTH of an engine. In decreases it. Water (as well as higher octane fuel) let you tap the power at lower altitudes which could not be tapped because of too high temperatures which result from over boosting. This can easily be seen in the D-22 power graph, where more power is available at lower altitudes where cooling off the charge via water injection and making it less prone to pre-ignite and/or knock allows the boost to be increased further and further. The D-10 report shows what a 56"Hg+WI engine can do at 29500ft. It shows a speed limit no
  10. Well, I'm not sure how the D-28 in-game is modeled, since it seems somewhat confusing. You can't get 56"Hg on the gauge at 29500ft, but the speeds you get in-game seem to match the 65"Hg+WI speed curve of a 150 octane fuel D-22.
  11. The D-22 on ww2 aircraft performance can hold 56"Hg up to 29500ft.
  12. As expected. There are people who just can't stand (or understand) that others are better than them, and no matter what they will do, some will still be better.
  13. Are you using water injection? How high does your boost gauge go when at full turbo/throttle/RPM? With Water injection it should go to 64"Hg.
  14. I only have tracks of the 51 taking down 4 Ju88s, no videos. Here are 4 tracks showing what the P-51 with default ammo load can do: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y1ZL5Ud5vCKQfbqCiatznCKeC60TJMMZ/view NOTES: 1: I'm pretty much a beginner at the game, so I believe someone with more experience can take down much more than 4 Ju88s with the default load out. 2: the tests against the Ju88 were performed to get an idea of how easy it is to shoot down twin engine bombers by shooting exclusively at the engines and fuel tanks. However, since the cockpit o
