Take it to 10,000 meters. It's a whole different animal. It no longer feels like you are trying to balance it on the head of pin. It performs.

Sounds like a concept for a co-op.

Put P-47's and late 109's up at 10,000 meters, and some Dora's, and watch the pretty contrails, and pieces falling to the ground, way below... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey, first post! Found some stuff that might intrest y'all:

Has anyone tried to split-S the jug? I just got done trying out the R-27 vs the d-9 '44 from 7500m. Heres what I found:

Firstly, the Dora felt noticeably mora manoverable then the Jug at 7500.

D-9 could get at least a partial blackout at over 600 IAS, in vertical dive.

P-47 could not get a blackout over 450 IAS from a vertical split-S. (Try it!)

From 7500 meters, dive acceleration seemed a bit slow in comparison to the dora (although it did seem faster it), but see below:

I remember seeing in the p-47 vidio on Zenos Warbirds website, where the instructor explanes that a full powered split-s is formidden under 15,000ft because of the danger of not being able to pull out in time. Starting at 3000 meters, around 10,000ft. I ran the Jug up to around 560kp/h true on WEP, and then rolled directly into a split-s, still on WEP. When I reached level flight I was still at over 1500 meters.

edit: sorry the 15,000ft was from somewhere else. The zenos vedio shows a limit of 200mph IAS with power OFF, from"high altitude" for a split-s.

I'll end on a good note though:

After split essing from 3200 meters on wep, leveling out at approx. 1700 meters I left wep on and was able to zoom up to ABOVE my origonal hight, by mabe 1 or 2 hundred meters above before stalling out. Hot damn! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
