Try climbing in the P-40, keep climbing, maintain about 80-100mph, it just hangs on its prop....and actually keeps climbing!!!!!

Turns on a dime now too if youve got the energy

Agreed.
I'm really happy with the new FM.
Finally, I've got a fighting chance to duck out of the way of a booming Jerry. And now can pull up to get a good shot on him as he climbs away in his zoom, without spinning into a complete and unrecoverable departure. And if he didn't manage his energy well I might be having him for lunch.

Feels pretty good after suffering for so long as just a target drone for the blue side. Now I'm a target drone , WITH TEETH! :lol:

With this breakthrough in FM's, I've got real hope now that the P-39 will be a useful addition to the plane set, and not just a twitchy, under powered, spinning suicide machine.

Another plus for the P-40: Skip-bombing works!!! Try it in quick mission on Kuban map. Select a free flight spawn point, with ships selected as targets and practice on cargo ships. Curve in with a high speed dive, level out just above the water and release just before you pull up to avoid the ship. I saw it bounce at least once. With a 500 lb bomb you can sink a 7000t cargo ship in one pass! Oh, I set my fuse timer to "contact"; not sure if that is necessary.

Now I really can't wait for the A-20! :razz:
