    It's because you are slower, and it's physically the only reason.

    I just tried 5G pull with 3 aircrafts: Fw190D9, P51 (with and without G suit) and Tempest. With 500km/h entry speed, 1500m high, and descending during the turn, it's easy to keep the speed up and thus the 5G. I started the stopwatch while banking to start the turn. I taked cared to take the same time (about 5sec) to reach 5G. Because P51 and especialy Tempest have a more sensitive elevator at this speed. The G lock occurs at 35sec (it seems the Fw190 has a 1-2sec advantage, which should be normal because of the seat angle), and at 1min for the P51 with g suit. Numb

    Did you even tried by yourself a continous turn with the same amount of G with both aircraft, to see if it takes way more Gs to black out in the 190 or not? Spoiler alert: Result is not.
  4. @MeoW.Scharfi This is me reading your message: So there is a talk about your chute kill and chute killing in general, and you point out "disputes" from the past between you, Krupinski and me? I will even give you a hand: Yes sometimes my ego get out of boundaries and drive to dumb reactions. Damn! But probably it never happened for you... ha ha In case you didn't know, all of this is over since quite a long time. Well, at least with Krupinski. In your case, it seems you can't get ride of it. Make me think of the dumb politics (or others) when
  5. True. Although the system is not perfect, most of the time the kill is clearly given to the one who did most damages. Chute killing is for morons (even more on CB as there are no pilot limits or things like that). End of the story
  6. You pull too much AOA and then, stall.
  7. Only on E7 both radiators are manuals. On all others: Water rad is auto or manual, and oil rad auto only.
  8. I have nothing to had to the subject but I can say you correctly chose your nickname.
  9. The prop blast effect will depend on power and speed. Aircrafts are generally stable at cruise speed and cruise power. Same goes for warbirds. With speed, the fuselage participate to yaw stability. Doesn't make me an aerodynamical engineer. The times I lost my vertical stab in the game, here what happened: - My plane was less but still stable on yaw axis as soon as I kept my speed up and fly smoothly. - When slowing down (to try to land for example), my plane was progressivly loosing its yaw stability and went into a spin even
  10. Nothing to do with 50 cal but At that speed, I'm not sure it should automaticaly go into a spin (in other words, completely loose it's yaw stability).
  11. And what about I16, Fw190, Mc202, ... well almost everything which doesn't have slats? What do you mean exactly? What?
  12. To me, it's as simple as that: It's an excellent tank killer, a bit underpowered. In fact you dont need speed to kill a tank (it's even better for the precision). Killing tanks with a big gun is one of the most satisfying thing in life
  13. Did you take into account the high elevator authority of RAF fighters? You're more likely to pull more G with them and not realising it until the pilot is exhausted and fall into a black out/G lock. A Spitfire can be completely traped by a 109 on his six because of G limits (its pilot can't exploit the full turning capability), while it has way better turn rate. Same story with Tempest vs Dora. The only escape is trying to make overshoot with eratic defensive maneuvers (so everything except a continous turn) or being able to quicly drop the speed and then turn hard at low speed with
  14. Is it voluntary that there are no G6 late on front airfields (Venlo/Aachen) of Y29 map?
  15. Are you saying that depending on the date chose by the mission maker (9/2/44), US aircrafts are equiped or not with G suit? Interesting, never knew about that.
  16. You just can't make a hard break turn with a 109 at this speed, due to hard controls at high speed. The only way is to take the time to trim up and pull down a bit of flaps to be able to turn "like" the Mustang. Which is why you probably get less G effects with the 109 at high speed (but bigger radius). Just to make sure: G is not only a matter of speed, it also depend on elevator input (and so, elevator authority, which varies with aircrafts).
  17. So we don't have the same game. Strange! Or it's because you completely exhausted your pilot.
  18. - Ta152H - An opponent for it - And another one But I still vote at 500% for a BOF add-on. So much fighting on the ground and in the air but too much ignored. The funny part of it is that most people see this battle as an useless one and a continous french retreat/german army walk. While french troops and air force were in fact counter attacking most of the time, while outnumbered.
  19. Oh ok. Well, at least, they are way less effective than before.
  20. That was before the 4.502 update: Before we could blow up / rip apart aircrafts with a precise shot of few seconds. Now they are far from being over powerful.
  21. The guy that kill you got an instant kick.
  22. Fw190 was well known (from Pierre Clostermann memories) to fly with a nose down attitude. So depending on aircrafts... Make me think I always found P47 fly with a very nose up attitude.
