Calculate for True Air Speed from your Indicated Air Speed. They are very different.

Going to be a bit of a problem when the enemies bombers are flying at @4000m though.

I'm beginning to doubt we will ever see 12lbs performance for red planes, but we'll see.

I am pretty sure it is correct. Remember that these are modelled from data supplied from RAE that was using 87 octane fuel. The 100 octane (12lbs) modell is considerably faster and not modelled (refer to my bug link

The test supplied was for propellers I believe, lots of different data on the trialled props.

So be it.
The most amazing thing to me in any combatsim is to figure out the performance-( and allroundskills) of EACH fightermodel. But the gap in Low altitudes between red and blue fighters will be too big to get this kind of fun!

What I see is that the current Mk1a is closer to the test graph up to 6000m but the patch will impose an unecessary reduction in the speed - that is what I don't understand.

So why make it slower when it is more or less correct to 6000m and the problem was the dip above 6000m (which will be corrected) or am i missing something here?

I believe this is the case.

Red pilots are just going to have to deal with this and try to use tactics.

If you seriously fly red, then you should be circling back by Eastchurch and the Thames estuary climbing to at least 16,000ft and higher before heading into the combat area.

Otherwise, you get what you get.

It doesn't even match the 87 octane test figs for N3171, let alone 100 octane (yes, I know about the lack of armour and IFF).

320mph @ 10,000ft, which is what the 'real life' curve shows (Boscombe Down, March 1940), against 490kph @ 3000m (1C Maddox Games), .

Even with my crappy maths doing the conversion 490kph is about 305mph @ 9842ft, and the patch is worse below 18,000ft than the current Ia.

Agree.

Which means when "Ju88's spotted over Oye Plage" we'll need to fly 180 degrees AWAY from the target in order to intercept! LOL

(Just kidding.........I hope! )
