Yes, she is a nice plane, and not a good idea for an enemy flier to take her lightly. Not my main bird, but I like to play "test pilot" once in awhile. If the game bird is in any way representative of the real one, I can understand the pride that the Brits have when it comes to the Spitfire http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You know, I am very curious. Oleg says that he can take off from a moving carrier in an F4U with a full loadout with the office machines. He also said that, apparently, some customers cannot, and was exploring it as a bug. It is one of the reasons for the delay of 3.04. I have to wonder if we all are flying exactly the same fm's?!?!?!?!

Would Explain Alot!

tsisqua, can you take of with F4U with full bomb loadout and 100% fuel? If you can what is your (approx.) speed when you leave the deck?

Well, that was fun!

Quite simply, no. I am not finished trying, so I will give her a few more tries, but I don't see it happening.

Duh , , ,
Here is why: I shouldn't be able to. Oleg was talking about the Hellcat when he made that statement, but it was mentioned while he was talking about the Corsair, so I got a bit mixed up there. I think I have finished feeding the fish, now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Changed the climb at different angles and speeds. More greater changes beween low and high speed climb as was "requested"
this was don by changes in FM formulas for all aircraft at once.
So the specifications for optima climb are not changed, but changed in critial modes of climb.
So it isn't just for Coupel of carrier based aircraft but for all in the sim.
We willl evaluate with F4 nd for some reports F6F... We can here in office take off from moving carrier with full loadout ....
It seems some users - not.
Anyway if we got the bug there with several aircraft - we will correct it in future in 3.04, but it will be not early than 3 weeks from now. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

The Spit Vb generally was regarded as the better plane against the 109Es and 109Fs. The 109Gs changed things up quite a bit...but the 109s apparently did hit and run manuvers because they would often get dragged into a turning dogfight and loose. The FW190s were apparently not afraid to mix it up because they could easily disengage and they had speed and speed-climb advantage.

However, an experienced 109 pilot and an experienced Spitfire pilot are going to achieve roughly the same turn. It varies based on speed, altitude, and pilot skill and the two are so close that a slightly better pilot or a pilot with advantage will be able to win.

With the IX against 1944 109s its a different story. The turn rates are so close that even two pilots with equally superior turn skills are going to be hard pressed to beat each other.
