I did a similar search, but when the results didn't show the "sideslip" text, I didn't dig further because I thought it was not getting the correct posts. I also did an "Advanced Search" instead of just searching this particular thread, so the good hit was probably lost in the noise. Advanced MUST be lots more better, right???
I came across that story in a Luftwaffe aircraft book. Funny how that was the original intent: to REDUCE the wing area.
It reduced agility to such an extent they had to put back the wing area which they did with a rounded tip. I always thought the rounded tip looked so much better than the square tip wings.
