I have been woondering about top speeds.
for exsample bf109G2 it's top speed should be 640kmh at 6000m.

I want to ask how it can be achieved? in level flight my speed record has been whit autoprop 540kmh. how i can get the rest of the speed (100kmh)?

I have tested other crafts too and they too intend to miss about 30-100kmh on top speeds.

I would like to know is this i not know kow to get it or something else?

Thx

I reached 635 km/h in a G2 with auto pitch and auto cowl flaps at 110% power without a problem.

I bet if you close the cowl flaps and fly with 100% power or maybe even a bit less you reach 640 km/h easy.

As for your question about only to reach 540 km/h, is this IAS or TAS?

I am pretty sure it's IAS.

I just tried the max speed of the Hurricane IIc at 6000 meters and I could reach 556 km/h TAS.

The IAS was 400 km/h.
