I dont fly the P-40E very much, not that i dont like the plane mind you. I just have a few others i like more.

This is not my first time testing the top speed for the P-40E but second time i tride these tests the results where the same.

P-40E's top speed at 1524m is 539kmh TAS.

100% fuel + amo i reached 490kmh with about 2 min over heating the engine.

50% fuel + amo i reached 495kmh, but had to over heat the engine for 2 min.

25% fuel + amo i reached 497kmh and yes i had to over heat the engine again.

I even trimmed the plane the best i could.

At the start i opened the rad all way and use only 90% power and got the plane to to as fast as it would go. Then i closed the rad and went to 110% power.

Im not shure about the P-40M model but i think the M can reach its top speed. The last time i tested M two weeks ago it could reach its top speeds. i also think the M might be a little too fast but im not 100% shure on this yet.

What about the Hurricane mk1 its suppost to do 318mph but I have never managed to get it to do much more than 400kph at all altitudes?
