I make some test in AE and must say that planes have no diffrentes in zoom climb (probably dive too - not mean critical dive speed)
- Spit MkV 1942 with Fw190 A-4 - near the same zoom climb
- A6M2 vs P-40E - the same zoom climb and dive
Besides A6M2 have better critical dive speed than Spitfire.
Something here is wrong.

Next strange things plane with engine off could fly long time without lost speed :(

I've done some zoom climb testing but nothing too serious.
The best zoomers in game are the Bf 109K-4 and La-7. These planes can gain as much 100-200m more than the second best zoomers in the game. This I believe has nothing to do with their zoom capability, but more their abailty to hang in the prop much better than other planes. The second best zoomers are the Fw 190D-9, P-51 and Ki-84. the Zero also zooms remarkably well, almost in the same class as the above mentioned.
