    A20 Bomber.

    One of the best interceptors in the game with the best short-term climb of any VVS plane. What's not to love? ๐Ÿ˜‚

    P-47D Level Speed

    Spitfire gains 15% power at +25lbs over +18lbs and initial climb goes up by (rough estimate) 40%

    When the P51 will be available?

    Let's not forget in May 1944 Tempests, Jugs on water, P-51Bs and Griffon Spitfires are shooting down G-6s and A-5s.

    Because the P-51 was really flown with 150 octane fuel, the charts all calculate horsepower with ram for a realistic number. 1.98ata K-4s are so rare that the horsepower is calculated on paper, not measured in a moving aircraft with ram. I've been in discussion with the FM team on this topic and 1C need charts without ram for their engine modelling.

    Down to 2000ft/min at 44mph Edit: pretty awesome angle of attack in those climbs ๐Ÿ˜„

    If you hold about 40 degrees pitch you can climb at around 3000 ft/min at 50mph though ๐Ÿ˜„

    Love those flaps ๐Ÿ˜„ Crazy climbing while what you assume would be fully stalled at 40mph!

    Tried the K-4, back to the A3 :-)

    As long as you don't use any mode for longer than 10 minutes you can fly an entire sortie without ever using "continuous".

    In the MW50-equipped 109s, WEP is allowed for bursts of 10 minutes then recharges in 10 minutes while at Combat power. This means you can go 10m WEP followed by 10m Combat before going back to 10m WEP then 10m Combat again. After this you will have only 5 minutes MW50 remaining for one last 5 minute WEP run.

    Kills the engine? You never even have to drop below Combat power for a sortie if you don't want to. You just have to make sure that you open it all the way when on emergency power to trigger the MW50 injection. A K-4 can fly a sortie like this without engine damage: MET: Power Setting: 0-10m. WEP 10-20m. Combat 20-30m. WEP 30-40m. Combat 40-45m. WEP Then it runs out of fuel. It's also faster at Combat than any other plane in the game at normal combat altitudes. WEP just extends that difference further. Being unable to escape from a Spitfire or Yak, both on 1943 engine settings, in your 1945 K-4 is unheard of. The K-4 is 100kph faster than either of those planes in a straight line and climbs better than both at almost all normal combat altitudes.

    Me 410 and Mosquito

    During my research into 2TAF I have catalogued the variety of Mosquitos and their engine types that would need modeling for this to happen: 2TAF Key: Mosquito VI IX XII XIII XVI XVII XVIII Tsetse XXX Night Fighter Squadrons: 418 140 264 29 140 219 219 219 Strike Fighter 605 409 400 488 410 Bomber 613 264 4 488 Photorecon 305 604 107 488 21 409 487 Engine M22/23/24/25 M72* M21/23 M21/23 M72*/73*/76*/77* M21/23 M22/23/24/25 M72*/76*/113* *=2sp 2stg SC It would make most sense for us to get a Merlin 22/23/25 Strike Fighter Mk. VI, however these are absolutely slow compared to the opposition in late 44/early 45 and don't have the power to climb high and level bomb without a 7-series two-stage supercharger.

    Tactical Air War

    Had a very strange sortie. This player @EG14_Victor teamkilled @PeterZvan after I set him on fire, then disconnected to end his sortie. https://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=74978&name=EG14_Victor
  13. The Mustang on the power setting we will get is slower and turns worse than a K4. The Spitfire XIV is also slower than a K4.
  14. Not even all that contemporary. It's a January 1944 aircraft, while the Dora and Kurfurst don't show up until the late autumn.
