what is the service ceiling? on the HE-111 it is 6,000.
if this means that the max alt this aircraft can reach is 6000 something is wrong. You cannot reach this alt with this aircraft (or any other as far as i know). Even after changing the supercharger to 2nd stage, max throttle, raised flaps, prop pitch maxed i can only get slightly about 5000. even in some of the campains for single player mode, some of the missions within the campain for the HE_111 say that the flight alt will be 5500. The AI can reach that alt but I can't.. plz if there is something else i can do to get that bomber to fly higher let me know.

thx for your time http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've reached 20,000 mtrs+ with the russian rocket plane, but that doesn't really count. In almost any plane I can reach 5000 pretty easy, 10000 is a tougher goal to reach but still doable. Is doable even a word?

Service ceiling is defined as the point at which the aircraft can no longer sustain a rate of climb of at least 100 feet per minute.

Absolute ceiling is, as the name implies, the absolute maximum altitude of the aircraft. It's at the point where Vx (best angle of climb) and Vy (best rate of climb) meet.

Many of the ceilings are wrong in FB1.1B, from Ju-87 to He-111 to Me-262. Nothing can do about it until the next patch.

The He 111H-2 is supposed to have a service ceiling of 7000m. In FB 1.1B it's service ceiling is 5000m due to a lack of mixture control /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif . Ju-87's have the exact same problem.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>
