Where are the two bombs? Dogfighting is not the purpose of this jet was it?

Death is certain, look forward to it.

AFAIK it was strictly heavy fighter.

If it had gone into service, the only use for it would be to defend against allied bombers. Hence, the twin MK103s. Offensive bombing would be out of the question.

Apparently, it was also intended to dogfight with biplanes and do aerobatics http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

Gotha's first production prototype for the Go 229A single-seat fighter-bomber series was given the designation Go 229 V3. V4 and V5 were to be the prototypes for the Go 229B all-weather fighter, and V-6 was to be a second A-series prototype with MK 103 cannon in place of MK 108s. V7 was to be a prototype for a two-seat training version.

I got the above from here. (http://www.geocities.com/nedu537/go229/)

Good site. Interesting read.

I have tried this plane a few times in AEP out of curiosity. It flies nicely but you are in for a bail if you get the thing into a spin.

Any ideas on how to recover a spin without a rudder?

I THINK THE Go229 HAVE A IMPORTANT PART MISSED, THE FRONT WHEEL AIR BRAKE.

As show in this picture, it have a huge air brake in the front wheel and the game one dont have it.

Drop throttle and nose down. You could also try seperate engine managment against the stall. Even though the engines are close together it might give a rudder type resistance against the stall.

Can't nose down in a flat spin. Else they'd all be easy to get out of. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I got out the first and only time I spun it. You need alt. I was at 2Km when I started to spin. Drop everything - flaps, gear, and brake.

What I noticed happend was that the spin slowed, and the nose pitched down and it became more of a slow roll.

I could be wrong here, but, my guess is that the brake and flaps gave a pitch down moment (as they should) and that big *** balloon nose wheel helped act as a bit of a yaw brake.

Oh, I had full spoiler against the spin too.

You can nose down in a flat spin it's just hard to do. Read your explanation again. You notice the "nose pitched down" part.

Don't forget I know a thing or two about flat spins considering the P-39 was my main ride for a long time.

Yes, simply telling one to "pitch down" implies use of elevator. As I said, it would be much easier if that's all it took.

You just wish to argue semantics don't you? Fecker. :P
