I took a couple out with a Ki-84I. Took a couple out with a Bf-109G10. Took 1 out with a Ki-100, the next one I couldn't catch, climbed like a demon, dove like a P-47. But it was fun!

The loadout choices for the AI Tempest in 4.0 are 1000 kg bombs, 6 rockets, fuel tanks, and the default.

I did a QMB last night, Okinawa map, Airbase strike, with 4 Tempests and 4 Spit IXc as escort. Two of the Tempests got shot down by Flak.

Am I crazy or I remember correctly that there was a way to fly non flyable planes, but with no cockpit ? Did anyone tried this on tempest?

jepp thats true. speed, climb and firepower could be measured, though stall and other things are not as it should be...

I haven't really shot at it much...too much gawking. I will do a full test and report later.

I have only done a few battles in QMB but they seem to really explode when hit by a FW-190. I was a bit surprised.

I sure hope we don't have to wait too long till we can fly it, the Mk XIV and the mosquito!

I must say, it can't hold a candle, even when on Ace AI, to a P-47D-27.

Contemporary D-9s and K-4s pack it a lunch and take it to school. 8vs8 QMB enemy set to Veteran and I was still shreddin' in the Focke Wulfs.

Overall it definetly doesn't live up to the hype assuming the performance is modelled correctly. I still look forward to ground pounding in it though if we ever get a cockpit.

Agree! Might be the "attitude" of the AI flying it though. Short of this, it is pretty easy to bring down.

I just love it!! i downloaded the 4.0 patch and tested it. chasing a tempest with the latest p51 and the tempest just say good bye and ticking 10 meters in a second away from me. even though its AI its still hard to bring it down some times. beside that i just love the new clouds, light and the higher FPS
