i have test the G2 R3 droptank
and this is what i get

bf G2 50%fuel + DROPTANK vs La 5 50% fuel

BF G2 50% FUEL -->turn time in 1000 meters 20 sec

La 5 50% fuel -->turn time in 1000 meters 21.5 sec

BF G2 50% FUEL +droptank --> even after release off the droptank the time speed off the turn in 1000 meters is 24 sec

thats 4 sec more this can meen that the R3 is POD that stay after u realease the drop tank make so muts dragg in airdynamic off the plane that make it 4 sec slower ?????

this look way to unreal 4 sec in 20 is like
20% worse in turn ability

pls Oleg take alook on that

p.s. soon i will have more data from testing drop tank to alot off other planes

And we need drop-tanks and bombs for the Friedrich series.......

It's the rack that hold the tank that makes most of the drag, and it's the drag that messes up your turns.

rack+tank lowers top speed by 22kph

rack alone lowers by 12kph, so the tank itself is only contributing 10kph reduction in top speed.

I know some time ago they did some sort of global rework of the drag modelling and forgot to change the parameters for open radiators, so the radiators were making much more drag than they should, and this was fixed in a patch.

But I don't know if there is a similar problem with the bombracks. I seem to recall that the German racks were pretty dirty until fairly late (you can see by looking at it it isn't so clean as like on American planes, or the later German ones), and 12kph may be right for them.

yes i know about the top speed but speed is just 12 kph
G2 top speed in 1000 meters is 525 kph
That meen that 12kph is about 2.5% slower
thats the problem u see the rank efect way to muts the turn rate and not the speed???
here we are talking about 4 sec slower turn rate
thats 20% slower its way to big
and thats only from the rack

With turning induced drag is more important than parasitic drag, it is different than in level flight at high speeds. You aren't going 525 kph when you are turning, and you are under a load of more than 1 G. Seems like the rack makes alot of induced drag as well as the obvious parasitic drag. No clue if this is correct, but that is the way it is in the game.
