Just read your response to CUBE's turn rate info.
Some people want to argue and say "you're wrong" [and I'm NOT saying CUBE wants to] but most of us imho want to know "if [fill in the blank], then why not [fill in the blank].
Every time you take the time to answer I walk away understanding the "why not" It helps me to understand the developers [Oleg's] thoughts and I appreciate the insight and understanding. I don't always agree but I always understand IL2 is your child and you had reason's you made it that way, and knowing why you did something helps mne immensely.

Well i thank oleg too, but you cant use boom & zoom when you aircarft cant climb better than the soviet aircaft or have a higher top speed. If B109F4 really was so bad then do not do nothing to it but if climb or topseed is wrong then change those. turnrates are correct i think.

I agree, it's nice to see Oleg drop by here more often. I can't remember the last time he posted so much in a single session.

With regard to top speeds of aircraft, as far as I know Cube has stated [more than once] that top speeds all seem to be within a reasonable margin of error when tested in-game. Climb rate figures were the focus of his first tests which you can read over at SimHQ, and there is a fair amount of disagreement about how accurate some of the FB figures are. The more recent postings from Oleg and others [Camo, etc] draw attention to the fact that the numbers presented in Il2Compare are not to be taken literally, though they do seem to be "relative" to in-game performance a great deal of the time.

Did you try the 109-F with manual prop pitch? You'll be surprised how it climbs.
