Every Bf109 series is fast in the game. For their time, that is.In 41 , E4 is a fast plane, G2 is a good one in 42. I can't think on what's the fastest, but on my experience Bf109 was one of the fastest.

Hmm ingame I think the La-7 is the fastest. In real life I think the fastest prop aircraft might be the Tu-95 Bear, it can fly at around 500 mph.

Hmmm, late war - I think it'a a close thing between the La7 and the Fw190 D at 20m asl.

Close enough that pilot ability is critical.


I've seen the 109Z out race La's - but not well enough to judge that plane faster (the 109 pilot was/is the better overall pilot).

then the la7 is the best plane not only because of being faster but because of turning real well

shame that in v 2.0 the efective runway of the elevator has been narrowed making imposible take it to the stall limit while turning

In real life I believe the hounors would go to
a highly modified F8F Bearcat named The Rare Bear. 2 passes on a measured mile in level
flight averaged 512 mph. That was in the late 80s or early 90s. As far as I know its still
a record.

Dont know about FB, when I get a little crazy
pieces start falling off.

The Do-335 was the fastest prop driven aircraft in WWII.

I'd say the fastest prop piston driven WWII fighters were Do335 and Supermarine Spiteful

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

P-51H @ 783km/h. Don't know if P-51H should should be viewed as a WWII fighter though. Spiteful was a post-war fighter as well.

Fastest piston Engined plane speed recorded was indeed the Rare Bear, and it managed 850.24 km/h (528.33mph) over a 3km course in 1989.

Fastest prop of all is the Tu 95/142 Bear, capable of a maximum level speed of 925km/h (575mph), Mach 0.82, although I don't know at what altitude it can do this. I guess you could work it out from the Mach number.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

"The XP-47J was a completely new airframe and not a conversion of an existing P-47D. The serial number was 43-46952. The XP-47J flew for the first time on November 26, 1943. On August 4, 1944, it attained a speed of 504 mph in level fight, becoming the first propeller-driven fighter to exceed 500 mph. At one time, it was proposed that the J model would be introduced onto the production line, but the advent of the even more advanced XP-72 resulted in plans for the production of the P-47J being abandoned before any more could be completed."

Thought the P-47M was the fastest or was it the Do-335

Umm..Yp/-80 was faster in real life.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

From the encyclopaedia of military aircraft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Max speed for Me-163 - 955 km/h (593 mp/h)
Max speed for Yp-80 - 966 km/h (580 mp/h)

not by much,but it shows what oleg knows http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Back to the topic...fastest prop plane would of been the Do.335

The Ta 152H-1 could manage 765km/h @ 12500m, that would probably make it the fastest prop to operate in the war. The Jumo 213EB equipped Fw 190D-12/13 would probably have been even faster, 770km/h was an estimated figure, and that was at 9500m altitude. The Ta 152H-1 was supposed to be fitted with the same engine in June '45, and an even stronger one in November '45. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

"Max speed for Me-163 - 955 km/h (593 mp/h)
Max speed for Yp-80 - 966 km/h (580 mp/h)"

Just an observation...but something in that equation doesn't add up...966 km/h should equal more mp/h than 955 km/h

The fastest Prop aircraft to see combat was the P-47M i beleive. It could fly at 475 mph (412 knots or 764.438 KPH true airspeed) at around 25000 ft or 7620 meters.

well...seeing as there's aprrox. 2 km in a mile. so thereofre aprrox. 2 km/h = 1 mp/h

We have to give some more props (no pun intended) go to the Dornier Do-335.

Not only does it LOOK insanely fast, but it IS insanely fast (760km/h).
