Is the p-38 going to be in the new Aces add-on?
And is the p-51 mustang so hard toturn in real life? I thought it was suposed to be nimble and fast I always get shot down in one and out run and out turned. I'm not saying it might not be pilot error but I was just wandering why.

Keep the Mustang above 400km/h and she will turn very good, and the faster you go better she will turn. The Mustang is most agile at around 540-650km/h. Above 600km/h the only fighters that can stay on your tail is the Fw 190 and P-47. Remember that this is against other human opponents and not the AI. The AI can pull some crazy stunst at ANY speed, and they are not a good measuring tool when doing comparisons. Also never take more than 25% fuel. Use the vertical and make sure that you have an height or E advantage over your adversary. If you make a bad call and end up in a tight furball, don't worry, drop your combat flaps and and start dancing. Make smooth pulls on the stick in order not to stall out. In a turnfight your worst adversaries are anything russian. Your worst overall adversary is the Fw 190D-9. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Good luck!

When it comes to aircombat, I'd rather be lucky than good any day!
