A few questions:
1. Are you really saying the Bf109s were more manoeuvrable than the Zero up high? Neither they nor the Zeroes were good high-altitude performers but I find it difficult to thinkof th 109 as being more manoeuvrable.
2. The high altitude differential between your 109s etc and the Ta-152H seems far too small..
3. Bombers with manoeuvre of 0 ???
1. The way I understand it, the Bf-109 was decent at low levels, but lacked power and manuevre at higher altitudes.
2. Ta-152H was designed as a high altitude interceptor. It generally shoudl perform worse at lower altitudes the way I understand it.
3. Should even the heavies be around 2-4?
Basically Speaking the Me-109E was by far best turning fighter of the 109 series, Followed by 109F, 109G2, 109g6, 109g10, 109k4. However far as turn radius goes, its barely larger then a Spitfires turn radius. Also power depends on the model, example most 109s flew quite well from 0-5,000feet up to 24,000 feet. Climb rate was outstanding, as well as speed. However turn radius was on par with the spitfire till the 109g2 model, after that it started getting terrible. Basically 109k4 was an interceptor able to do 450mph, however in a dogfight with a 109e based on turn radius, E model wins hands down.
Ta-152 also was an extreme high alt interceptor, able 450+ at 40,000 feet, where 109s rarely went above 25,000 because the climb rate just dropped off as well as speed.
Ta-152 I believe does 330 on the deck, 400mph at 15,000, 425 at 23,000 and 450 above 45,000. Turn radius was surprisingly small at alt based on its long wings.
if needed I have all the stats on every plane, including turn radius etc, not sure how that breaks down in game.
