    P47 Performance Stats

    Let's not call them "dive brakes" please, they are compressibility recovery flaps to be deployed for recovery purposes - you don't have them to keep the speed low, you have them to pull up because you're overspeeding so easily.
  2. This should be submitted as a bug then as with current engine limit "recharge" times it is not possible to spend 20 minutes at WEP in a sortie.

    P-47 Thunderbolt M1 official engine mod ?

    For the curious I make 100 inches of R-2800 power about 3900hp

    76" or ~3,000hp Good thing we have that 400hp buffer on our 2600hp engines at WEP so this shouldn't affect us.

    150 octane was not used in peacetime. Allies were already back to 100 octane in May 1945.

    Guess why the Spitfire Mk IX got upgraded to 1 hour of Combat time in the manual? Nope it wasn't anything to do with the engine design - it was because it couldn't sustain level flight when carrying bombs in it's new role as ground attacker without using +12lbs of boost. Now because the Spitfire manual was rewritten for bombing missions it gets a nice helping hand in an unhistorical role (by our time period) as a dogfighter.

    Too many fighter jockeys, not enough Peshkas boys. Bring the heat this time! Two engines or go home! EDIT: Oh and sorry about your depot at the end of Mission 3, blue ๐Ÿ˜„

    Another night and we probably could have pulled it off. My group alone bombed out Simonkovo field on Sunday night, Lukovnikovo depot on Wednesday night and Sychevka depot on Thursday night. Considering Simonkovo was basically untouched when we arrived and we didn't even need all our bombs I feel confident we could have got at least 2 fields tonight if we still had enough planes ๐Ÿ˜…

    250kg bombs not exploding tanks like they should I feel. I get the impression that a tank when tracked cannot be damaged any further but does not count as a kill.
