I have a quick question about the Komet which I think is coming in the next (gasp) patch. How will this little bugger compare to the Bl-1? Will it have the same insane climb rate and short range?

Performance will likely be similar. I personally like the Komet better.

The Komet will be lots like the Bi but, the Komet has no elevator. Dont know how this will affect performance. The Komet has two 30mm cannons. This should be impressive. THe Komet also has a short time of fuel so, I can allready see me setting up a unlimited fuel df, Bi vs Komet. Should be different and fun.

From what I have read on the Comet it had better Performance than the B-1 . But you could only cram so much rocket fuel into those small airframes , and that will make for a short but fun flight.

that little bugger is too fast for its rate of fire, I believe it broke the 1,000 kph barrier in horizontal flight with Heini Dittmar at the controls ( 1941?)...really a kite on a glide...most pilots overshot their landing fields because it floated a lot without power....If I recall correctly it goes up at 3,000 meters per minute at full power

if you can imagine the BI-1 being " Manurverable " then imagine the komet being less " Manuervable "

is faster than the BI-1 was

btw ... its fuel was so corrosive that it could melt human flesh
in some crashed komets some Dead pilots had their bones showing

Good book - Me163 Rocket Interceptor by Stephen Ransom & Hans-Hermann Cammann

Vol 1 around, Vol 2 sometime later this year. Enjoy!

From memory the ME-163 had a Glide Ratio of 20:1 and it had Elevon's --the Aileron's double as Elevators.

Funny to compare Bi-1 and Komet. Komet was finished, while Bi-1 remained in prototypes. Seven of them where destroyed because aerodynamical failures. The Bi-1 modelled in game is far from historical Bi-1.

Is the Komet really coming with the patch or with an add-on later on ?
