I've taken the data provided by the devs and put it in a table for a plausibility check. I've been calculating the overall efficiency of the aircraft in the sustained level turn at sea level.
Several odd things pop up:
The B109F-2 is clearly worse than all other Bf109's, even worse than the Bf109E-7. That's odd.
The LaGG-3 and both Yak-1's are miles ahead of the competition.
The I-16 performs very poorly, even for a design as chubby as it is.
The Ju87 perf
So, in game test continued, same procedure - standard loadout, sustained right turns near sea level (50m), standard conditions, close to stalling, but far enough away not be stressful. I think for the most part, the table below speaks for itself. Today, with one really unexpected result:
I never thought about turnfighting in a Fw190 at sea level, but in game, it's one of the best there is at that. Please note - this is with stab trimmed all the way up. I checked also with stab all th
