A while back there was a RL test posted done by the USN about a mock-combat between both a/c types. Does someone knows a link to that report?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

dunno but Corsair turned and climbed better, while 190 was faster.

A mate over there @ the German board found that report. Who's interested, here the link.

Intersting read... I would have thought the Corsair to be faster at higher altitudes and climb better, but not so...I knew the Corsair could roll and had a decent turn rate, but i didn't know it could roll with the Fw and out turn in in one circle after a head on pass. The Hellcat info was no suprise to me...the corsair is somewhat of an enigma to me as I see lots of contradicting information about performance. I sure hope it is modelled with a good rate of roll, speedy down low, with a good turn rate...and we get the F4U-4 so I can experience that plane's phenominal climb rate.

You'll never test that, and it's pointless, if PF can't merge with FB/AEP. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif
