What is the differences in the new K4 c3 and the old, what has better climb and energy fighting statistics. I know the fuel is different but what seems to be better online these days. thanks all.

Short write up

Bf109K4 '44: Uses the DB605DB with B4 fuel + MW50 setup creating 1850PS at 1,8 ata at takeoff.

Bf109K4 '45 (C3): Uses the DB605DC with C3 fuel + MW50 setup creating 2000PS at 1,98ata at takeoff.

As you see the latter has more power and thus is faster and climbs better up to the rated altitude of its engine (~6000m) Above that altitude both planes are pretty much the same!

The 1.80ata K-4 had its performance decreased when the new one was added in 4.03m. The new 1.98ata performs like the old 1.80ata. As they are now the two K-4s are very close. The 1.98ata has its best advantage at 5000m, but that's still only 12km/h, just 1.7% different.
