no seriously, i think the La-7 is very fast indeed, the Ta 152 isnt that fast on the deck, is it? i mean those large wings cause a great drag in the thick air there.
im pretty sure its no LW plane.

I always found the La-7 to be mind blurringly quick at sea level. But then again I fly a Hurribus Mk Ia, so virtually any aircraft feels quick to me. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

P38 experiences Compressability before the P47 and 51 I believe... Fast? I can get the Ki84 up to speed in seconds, it has incredible acceleration. The La7 is slow, just 20mph~ faster than the La5.

According to IL2 Compare, the fastest at 100% throttle and at sea level is the La-7 at 570 KPH\TAS. It's also the fastest at maximum speed with boost at 605 KPH\TAS, although several aircraft come close to matching it such as FW-190D-9, Ta-152H-1, Ki-84, P-63 and P-51D-20.

Ive tested almost every plane at sea level on crimia in version 2.01. Rads closed, 25% fuel. Here are the results for the fastest planes:

1.LA7/I-18-613kph 2.D9 45'-611kph 3.D9 44'-607kph 4.BF109Z-606kph 5.P63/TA-605kph 6.A9-604kph.

The p47 p38 and spit IX are way behind if anyone was wondering.

IT depends at what altitude.

The 109Z is about the fastest aircraft in the game, but up high I think the Ta-152 is faster.

Your right, but I was just posting the fastest planes at sea level. Up high its another story.

What about the 109K-4?

WUAF_Badsight
06-12-2004, 03:56 PM
109 K4 is fastest accellerating

LA7 or P-63 ..... either one is outright fastest

If you only look at top speed at low level, it is the La-7. Bf-109Z might come second but if you don't count prototypes and fantasy planes then the Fw-190D9 comes in a close second. The Fw-190A9 ties the Yak-9U for third. The Ki-84 is realitively slow for a 1944 bird but it seems fast do to high acceleration. The Yak-3 is the slowest of the 1944 planes. The P-38L falls into the average catagory.

The K4 is not far behind at 594kph. And the p51 has gained about 20-25kph at sea level in the last patch and reaches 596kph on the deck.

I haven't been racing for a bit.

But prior to the last patch, the LA-7 and the Dora were clearly the fastest in air races.

The Ki-84 and the P-51 aren't even in the same ballpark.

If you really want to find out, get in some air races at IL-2 Rcing. That's as "on the deck" (and sometimes "all over the deck") as you can get.

Well, that's the reason I wuz asking, coz I wanted to know which to pick for the open prop races.

I missed the open prop race last night, but I did fairly well in the other races. It's a helluva lotta fun!!

its about as fast as a La7

so those two are the fastest

The P-51 does atleast 590 right now but I wouldn't count that as it will almost certainly be reduced in the next patch. Oleg uses ideal factory data for american planes and the P-51D's currently exceed even those very optimistic values. I don't know about the Bf-109K4 but it wouldn't suprise me if it is too fast as well. But too hell with the late war stuff, the best races are with I-16's and other pre-war stuff http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

The open air races generally have a good mix of planes but mostly La-7s and D-9s. It seems the Las will take the lead early on, but the D-9s will catch up once the overheat starts and CEM comes into play.

La7 should be fastest with around 640 km/h at sea level after factory specs. However Produktion aircraft was around 605. That is presented in Game. The Dora with Special low alt boost was in the same range of 640 km/h at Sea Level. The Dora9 ingame reaches about 600 km/h. Well thats for the Sea level speeds. The fastest prop should be the ta152 the should be able to reach 700 km/h at 10 k with 100 % ta151h1 without any boost not so in FB. There are however different speeds for different alts. Overall the ta would be the fastest even when the flying at top speed is a short fun time.

High Ground is not only more agreeable and salubrious, but more convenient from a military point of view; low ground is not only damp and unhealthy, but also disadvantageous for fighting.

Hi all! I'm new here . . . i'm interested in this chat line.

Owrite, as for me . . . i'd say that the P-51(D-20NA) and the Yak-3(1945) are the fastest, no doubt about that though there are not my favourite planes unlike my FaVoUrItE Bf-109(K-4).

Reasons: I've created a racing course at a map which has the 8 Islands wif P-51(D-20NA), Yak-3(1945), Fw-190(D-9 1945) and my Bf-109(K-4) at an altitude of 1,000M and a starting speed of 300km/h to its topest speed to its next waypoint. All in AI Mode. No Boost System Used.

Results: P-51(D-20NA) came in first along wif Yak-3(1945) not far back which came in second, follow up by Fw-190(D-9 1945) which came in third and was kinda far apart wif the Yak-3(1945) and the P-51(D-20NA)&lt;About two grids apart in a map when zoomed in fully&gt; and lastly my Bf-109(K-4) which was about one grid apart from Fw-190(D-9 1945) . . . hmm kinda sad for my Bf-109(K-4) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif . . . sigh

Overall Top Speed Results Tested: P-51(D-20NA): 540km/h, Yak-3: 530km/h, Fw-190(D-9 1945): 500km/h, Bf-109(K-4), 480km/h. Yap these are the results! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh btw!, sorie for a very long message. Thank u all.

And if you would use FULL power, you would find that the fastest prop plane on the deck in Mustang Mk.III, second is La-7 (and La-7 3xB-20), third in Fw-190D9 with MW-50. In the acceleration cometition La-7 beats them all.

My results from when I had done the tests for the Aircraft Reference Guide (4.01):

1. Mustang MkIII ~650 (but it reaches it very slowly)
2. La7_3xB20 611 (and it reaches that very quickly)
3. I-185M71 609
4. P-51D and D9 (1945) 605


Some others:

FW190A9 585
Ki84 585
La5FN, Yak-9U and P-51B 580

G10 573
Yak-3 572

P-38J,L and P-51C a bit slower
