    Last Night, I ran a test of the P-40N's Climb Performance. Results are the following: Best Climbing Airspeed is around 195 MPH TAS. Yes, I know it varies in IAS with altitude. While holding 195 MPH TAS, Climb Rate was 2800 feet / minute at 500-1,000 feet altitude 2885 feet / minute at 5,000 feet altitude 3000 feet / minute at 10,000 feet

    Allen, thanks for the advice... I will try that Saturday..As far as our email yesterday, I ended up with the one that you really did not recommend, after talking to Rep at ReCircuit Refurbishers I did not take the second one...was not what I thought it was. So it goes, at least I know someone offers Windows XP comps. I will return soon.... Dave

    I really did not understand your meaning of attacks by Me 109s with long range tanks. The typical Me 109, especially late in the war tended to fly often with drop tanks because their internal fuel capacity was so little. - Ivan.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, At low altitudes, the Baltimore COULD probably outrun a Me 109E and give a Me 109F a pretty good chase. It would have no hope against the Me 109G or anything later though. Please note that the 109 did not carry all that much fuel either, so at full power, the late versions would go completely dry in a bit over a half hour. Earlier versions were better but not that much better. (Figure on 45 minutes to 1 hour at high power settings.) I have always wondered if the prohibition of a Luftwaffe after the Great War managed to cripple German Aircraft designs in less than obvious ways; if one only designs gliders, then thinking of a good location for fuel isn't a great concern. Regarding the accounts of fighting off Me 109s:

    Hello Aleatorylamp, I know about the unwanted peak in engine output about 2/3 between Sea Level and Critical Altitude, but I don't know about the 100-200 HP ABOVE critical altitude. I am really not sure what you are describing here. We still have no idea how good the AIR file is. So far, all we know is that the engine output is "Fairly Reasonable" within the limits of Combat Flight Simulator. Engine Performance is only a small part of the AIR file even though it affects so many things. There are still many many other issues that need to be addressed. Unfortunately, most of those things that need to be addressed can only be tested subjectively.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, Regarding "Normal Maximum", I was intending it to mean the non-WEP maximum. I believe it would be the 42.0 inches Hg setting. So is this considered WEP in CFS or just the maximum non-WEP setting? Regarding the rest of your settings, I do not see how having a match to the SEFC at 94% or 95% throttle is useful. How can you prevent the player from using 100%? - Ivan.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, I am not so sure about "very good" below critical altitude. I would now state it as "very predictable" at most altitudes. That does not mean it is necessarily a good match at medium altitudes as was shown with the FW 190D. As I stated before here in this thread: You know the WEP Limitations of CFS. I do not believe that they have a great resemblance to reality other than where a power adder of some kind is used. The question is whether or not "Normal Maximum" should be restricted in duration.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, I have experimented a bit with Air Wrench, but have never been that interested because I am really interested not so much in having a program build the AIR file for me, but rather to know how to do it myself. Regarding the B-25 "Normal" Horsepower, one has to wonder which rating is being described and what the manifold pressure actually was. Without that, it really gives no additional information. - Ivan.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, I sent the information to my sister. I will also do some checking. The actual problem possibly is a bit different than one might expect. Regarding AirEd.ini, I found that my copy was pretty old as well. It is newer than the one that comes with AirEd, but still dates back to around 2003 or so. I just did a quick search and found one dating back to 2012 but have not had a chance to look it over for comparison yet. - Ivan.

    Actually I had never seen the comments in AirEd.ini on this subject but will look for them when I get the chance. I had always thought that I was the first to experiment with them. Once I had a workable solution, I probably would not have been looking for an alternate description. That just goes to prove that there really isn't much that is new. Perhaps this WEP Additional Boost Gain isn't new either? I have a bunch of experiments in mind, but have way too many distractions at the moment to get anything significant done.... - Ivan.
