I was doing some tests on the Fw 190D9's last night when I found a strange bug. The Fw 190D9's are actually faster at 103% power with boost than they are at 110% with boost. It appears this is because the engine overrevs in level flight at high speed while at 110% power, but it doesn't do this at 103%. Here are my findings:

D9 Late:
110% + Boost = 603 km/h
103% + Boost = 635 km/h

D9 Early:
110% + Boost = 601 km/h
103% + Boost = 611 km/h

*Fw 190A9:
110% + Boost = 621 km/h
103% + Boost = 610 km/h

All tests are recorded in TAS and were performed on the Crimea map at 10m ASL with auto prop pitch, radiator fully closed, 100% fuel and default armement.

*Fw 190A9 was done as a control to ensure that this effect did not apply to all planes.

As we all know, the Soviet Union had too many fighter pilots during WW2. So Stalin's scientists came up with a brillient way to solve this problem. They would make some of their pilots fly British made Hurricanes. The Hurricane was an uber flying coffin. It was designed to maximize pilot kills by providing nothing but fabric and a few wooden spars around the cockpit. This setup prevented the pilot from escaping easily while at the same time not interfering with enemy bullets and shrapnel trying to pass through it. The rest of the Hurricanes structure was designed to ricochet bullets and shrapnel into the cockpit. And thanks to the cockpits superb design, all of them would pass through the cockpit and the pilot inside with little difficulty. Of course the Hurricane's designers didn't stop there. In order for the Hurricane to become a flying coffin, they had to make it easy to shoot. They did this by making the Hurricane the slowest monoplane fighter in use at the time and even gave it a very bulky shape so that it would be easy to spot and hit. The final feature of the Hurricane was its ability to bury or cremate itself. And because it was made of biodegradable materials, the Hurricane was environmentally friendly after it buried itself. Because of these brillient features, the Hurricane was a perfect flying coffin and helped the Soviets solve the pilot surplus they were suffering.

Buzzing around in a stuka. I thought it might have already been found, but I hadn't heard anything about it other than "103% power has no decrease in speed".

The over reving problem will probebly be fixed. As for the D9 late going 635 km/h, I'm not so sure. The D9 Early in the object viewer is listed at 600 km/h, so the D9 Late should be faster.

This little 103% trick has the late 109's going to fast though. Actually the 109's are to fast no matter what you do. Manual pitch, and 110% give the same speed.

It'll probably do it from 102% to 105%

It's like that in the 109K4 too.

Just those little things the aces know. Like run the 109K4 at 110% gas and 60% prop, get near 640 and gyrate the prop using 50% and 60% prop pitch buttons to boost the speed to 656! I call it Han Solo making the jump to light speed.

For D9 late I got (100m ASL):

646 km/h --with 101% and 60% pitch

630 km/h --with 103% and 60% pitch

634 km/h --with 103% and 55% pitch

Can anyone beat 646 km/h?

If you make it a contest. We'll need a track.

I've been flying only the 1944 Dora with auto-pitch and 103-105% when I need boost, which is less than half the time I'm flying.

I'm most interested in climb-rates for the Dora, and will I be able to blackout in high speed turns.

The 103-105% works on most AC. Like the Hurricanes are faster at 105%, 109's at 104% and so on. Its like you nee to find the "sweet spot" on each ac.
