When did the Wildcat and Corsair get a laminar type airfoil? 23015 is not a laminar type airfoil with the upper surface max depth at 25%.

I find it quite intriguing that the FW 190 shares airfoils with the most manuverable aircraft in the US inventory, the F4F, F6F, and F4U, among others.

Makes you wonder where Tank went wrong... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If you changed Tank to 'Where 'Oleg' went wrong' I would agree with you Horseback http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif The Fw 190 was manuverable.
