What is with this plane.I fly on mostly Warclouds and have found this plane was removed.Now its just the MKIXe and the HF-MKIXe.Was it too good like jets and for fair gameplay was removed????I really doubt thishttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have been looking around in IL2 Wingman,which is an awesome plane viewer,and find that the MKIXe has the Merlin61 while the LF has the Merlin66 and the HF has the Merlin70.

The LF has the highest boosted rating at 1,720HP.Faster roll and much slower climb.Higher power to weight ratio.Sounds like the perfect plane for the low level fighting that goes on in Warclouds.

So whats everyones take on the MKIXe and its LF and HF variants and why was it cut from Warclouds?

Slower climb on the LF IX? Are you sure? That is just plain wrong.

The RAE and A&AEE tests have the LF variants of the Spitfire IX (Merlin 66) climbing abut 20% faster than the Spitfire F. IX(Merlin 61).

Spitfire F. IX could make 20,000 feet in about 5 and a half minutes and 30,000 feet in about 9 minutes. Best climb of about 3,900 feet/ minute.

Spitfire LF. IX could hit 20,000 feet in about 4 and 3/4 minutes. 30,000 feet in abou 8 minutes. Best climb of about 4,700 feet/ minute.
