I cant remember were the Tempest has its sweet spot, even if its not the fastes down low it should be awsome a little bit higher up, even compared to a Mustang III wouldnâ´t it?

6000ft and 18,000ft or there abouts, are the points where the engine develops most power with the 9lbs boost, same as 11lbs boost with that engine. If it was a SabreIIB both a lower, the first by 3000ft and the 2nd by 500ft.

Going offtrack a bit here but those pilot action reports make some very interesting reading - incredible that in one case the pilot claims he opened fire at 1000 yards! (obviously must be flying with icons off!) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
