In Forgotten Battles, the Fw-190's A-8,9 and D-9's as well as 109K's are reigning axis speed demons down on the deck...Ki-84 right with them. All these planes are advertised at 580-600Km/hr at sea level...

The question... how do these aircraft stack up at sea level in real life:

Spitfire Mk IX Lf clipped and reg...
Spitfire M XIV clipped and reg...
Hawker Tempest
Hawker Typhoon
Corsair F4U-1A

I'm hoping one or more of these aircraft can equal or exceed low level performance...I'm thinking the late model spits and Tempest could, but I'm not sure about the others...maybe the history buffs can answer it. I've got my fingers crossed for the Mk IX Lf series in the patch
