Is that a hint?

I'd like to see data for the early fabric aelerons, solid spar and mk 21+ wings. Not relevant to veao's work (as far as i know...) but its claimed the late wings improved rollrate and the fabric aelerons of the early spurs were shockingly bad.

Mk21? Of course its roll rate is awesome, but turn rate maybe degraded.

Personally I look forward to smacking a few 190's in a spit XIV

Spitfire XIVs take the high speed&altitude air supremacy role; 25lbs spitfire IX in charge of low-medium dog fight, Tempest MKVs apply hit and run; Typhoons do ground attack, that's best configuration of WWII tactic air force.

Spitfire XIV is the best energy fighter in WWII. Britain tactic fighters was leading till 1960S. BAE lightning outperforms Mig21.:)

I was speaking purely from an aesthetic point of view lol. cool graph though. I just don't like the look of the clipped wing or the bubble canopy look on the Spitfire so much personally. But I'm looking forward to this non the less, it is sure to be a winner.

Maybe later on we'll see a Griffon powered Spit like this F MK21... :music_whistling:

Hah funny you should mention that one, one of my dev team is yapping on about that almost daily (you know who you are!!)

I personally like the Seafang, MkXiV and MkXIX

Also got a soft spot for Mkv and Ia's

Haha he has good taste, two against one then... what a machine!! MK XIX is a beauty also though. :thumbup:

The MK.9 is still the nicest though.

Bah, who said I was against it? ;)

Just a case that we don't have a contract for one at the moment

My mistake :thumbup:

Somehow I think the future is bright for DCS...

Literally 7th heaven with the piston engine renaissance happening.
