Except for the lack of negative g engine stalling they seem the same to me.

Didn't test it but the model 21 seemed quite a bit faster. Much easier to catch up with Wildcats now. Just an impression mind you but before evrything seemed to outrun the model 21.

except for wildcat and p-40's in a dive, everything should be able to outrun a m2 zero in the straights.

The wildcat was only slightly inferior to the Zeke in level speed, and about on par at sealevel. For the F4F, not having any climb or manuver advantage, this was a handicap!

The P40 generally had slightly superior level speed, and better diving speed, at least allowing the possibility of disengagement.

All true but pre-patch the Wildcat could walk away from the A6M2-21.
You can catch them up easy if they climb a little, so if you're in a 'cat don't climb until you're a safe distance away.
In addition to flat out speed acceleration plays a big role in dogfights & here the Zero has an advantage.
The neg G cut out getting fixed is very nice too.

Last nite on VFC Coops nite, first mission I took a Zero and down 2 ex-ubersairs and damage one. Second mission I get my @ss handed flying a Seafire. Third mission I down 2 Hellcats and got an A20 smoking, flying zeke too.

Conclusion? The new 3.01 Zero rocks. Only thing that still bothers me is who stole the left MG in all my 1944-45 Zekes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

It was removed so you could carry a small bottle of Sake there.

The 5b still lacks the 7.7mm gun on the left side. The later ones had none there.

the 5b is very very nice to fly now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
hopefully next patch will have new model with 7.7mm, requires internal and external model change
