General Discussion / German space tanks?
« on: 09-04-2018, 22:04:45 »
Any plans on adjusting what seems overly powerd German tanks. Sure we all know they where good but not taken from Star Wars and sent into ww2. Also the fact that there where like 4 of the really good once and they had no fuel could some how be factored in. Just asking...

General / Turning radius on fighters
« on: 01-02-2018, 22:02:57 »
Just a small thing I wonder when it comes to the fighters. The 109 clearly turns faster ingame compared to the spit. As we all know this was not the case. Could be something to look over. Here are some data but Im sure someone can supply tons more.


The RAE determined in Report No. B.A.1640 that "The minimum radius of turn without height loss at 12,000 ft., full throttle, is calculated as 885 ft. on the Me 109 compared with 696 ft. on the Spitfire." and that the corresponding time to turn through 360 deg is 25 seconds for the Me 109 and 19 seconds for the Spitfire. 73   (See also Me 109 and Spitfire. Comparison of Turning Circles and Spitfire and Me 109 Diagrams of Turning). 60 years later Dr. John Ackroyd, PhD, C.Eng, FRAeS of the Aerospace Division, Manchester School of Engineering, University of Manchester, and Fellow of The Royal Aeronautical Society, took a fresh look at this subject in his paper "Comparison of turning radii for four Battle of Britain fighter aircraft". He calculated the minimum turn radii to be 686 feet for the Spitfire IA versus 853 feet for the BF 109 E-3 - which is in very good agreement with the RAE's findings. 74
