Im having trouble maintaining the speed 200 at 10,000ft in basically anyfighter axis or allies even with WEP and or supercharger. Is that normal?

10,000 feet or 10,000 meters? IL/FB is all in metric.

I assume it means meters.

If you have complex engine management set on, then you must (in some aircraft at least) decrease the mixture setting to ~ 60% or your engine will bog down.

FB uses meters. 10.000 meters high is above 30.000 feet, and any WW2 aircraft has serious problems that high, except high-flight designed planes, like Ta 152 H, Bf 109 H and a strange version of bomber Ju 86...

It uses meter's? So what 28,000 meter's in the russian rocket plane? lol

I wondered why I was seeing stars.

Every take-off is optional, but every landing is mandatory!

Decrease the mixture , like mentioned 60%, and put on the supercharger to "2" to force air into the engine since it is so thin up there. Prop pitch at that height about 85% and you should be doing at least 310.

This has always confused me...

I work in feet, and IL2 is in meters. Would like to see a function where we could switch between metric and imperial.

...or you could join just about all of the rest of the world and learn the metric system! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Decrease mixture to 30%.

60% is way too high to produce enough power in any plane.

To convert metres to feet multiply by 3.28, so 28,000 m is erm let me see (bone takes is socks off so he can use his toes to count on) ...... very high http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Metric pah, what a load of tripe.

we didn't get where we are today by using metric. Were Imperial! We own half the world, have the biggest navy...


er hold on, what was that you said... we don't own half the world anymore... everyone else is using metric. We drive on the wrong side? Nobody likes us (well post Iraq anyway)

What happened.

The Jug and MiGs (except AM-38) are also excellent at high altitude. Best relults for my Jug-27 were 60% mix, was maintaining 320 on the speed bar. Man, I can see my house from up there! Good luck.

Good hunting,
