Well I was working with FMB and I know from info on il2 site p47's service seiling is 12 000m(around that)
but i start a session with p 47's engaging heinkels and dora's at 9000 m and the thing doesn'te ven reach 300 km/h
whats up with this? and the same for the 262 it has a lot of trouble

bug or not correctly modeld? or am I doing something wrong

There are two factors here:

1. High altitude modelling is off for all planes, the IL2 series was never intended to cope with much flying over about 6000-7000m.

2. The cockpit instrument and speedbar read in indicated airspeed. The figures at altitude you see in published plane specifications are in true airspeed. At high altitude the latter is significantly higher than the former.

If you want to check your true air speed. Switch to no cockpit, and read the gauge../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
