good post http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but US documents are considered to be fake by 1c, they only use russian data and pilot stories for fms

It is just as I thought, the FW-190 is a beast. Apparently it does climb pretty well. It is fast, rolls fast, has extremely light controls even at high (diving) speeds, has excellent all-around visibility (especially to the rear), accelerates well, is pilot friendly (simple to fly), and has excellent pilot position to resist blackout (take note of this everyone as this has been mentioned in other 190 tests). And we know the 190 has excellent firepower.

Not bad for a test performed by the enemy on a fighter/bomber version of the plane with unknown amounts of wear and tear against a fresh Hellcat and Corsair.

Like I said the 190 is a beast, especially if you stay true to "hit & run" tactics and don't engage in turn fighting.

I have respect for the Corsair though. It is an amazing plane, especially when you consider it was a Navy plane capable of carrier operations with minimal storage space.
