We have a P-63C-1/5 in the game, which was powered by an uprated Allison V-1710-117 engine with a war emergency rating of 1500 hp at sea level and 1800 hp with water injection.

Note that this is the same engine that the P-38 late we are supposedly recieving in the patch has. although that is only rated at 1,720 hp.

Big 4 bladed prop, extra power, ten inches taken off the wings and a very streamlined design all equal fast acceleration.

Agree, except the propeller, size of the propeller number of the blades have not necessary something to do with speed no with accelleration.

It also used the "Laminar flow wing" reducing drag which in turn helps increase speed.
