Default Wake turbulence for warbirds

Hello,

Lot of people including me are surprised that the wake turbulence are that important behind warbirds. As I didn't see lot of information about this recently (maybe I missed it), I don't know if this feature of DCS is finished or not ? But For now flying behind a P51 or a Bf 109 is like flying behind a C130. It feel like it's a bit too important for those little planes.

Thanks

You don't want to fly behind c130 in warbird believe me.

It is what it is. It's easy even flying into your own wake turbulence, just make a correct coordinated turn keeping altitude, and you'll see. IRL it's the very same, wake turbulence is a dangerous thing you want to avoid specially when it's from any bigger aircraft than yours or a helicopter. But any wake turbulence can be a problem.

S!

This video shows the main dependances of the wake turbulence.

This stuff is why they turned it back off

I hear wake turbulence isn't quite accurate in some areas though, such as on the ground, making planes move while stationary

They turned it off because fps issues

Yes Wake turbulences are dangerous. I don't mean it isn't. But I'm surprised it's so important.
Last time, we took off with two Fw 190A8 with 250kg bombs. By "accident" the other plane past in front of me just after we left the ground. My Fw 190 almost get upside down in a second. I understand that big plane are dangerous for little plane. But that was weird to me that a Fw 190A could do that to another one.

Thanks, I see it before. It's quite nice. But What I'm asking is not about how they work. It's more about how powerfull those are for warbirds.

I'm just surprised that we get so big effect from plane that have almost the same size.
I'm just wondering if it's normal or something that still need work.

It's overdone for such small airframes. Probably ED is still fine tuning them, hopefully..

No, they turned it off also because douches were doing exactly what you did. With it on, you don't make passes over the runway (and apparently ramp and taxiway as it would throw aircraft) while people are taking off, and you don't pass in front of others, especially a formation. People on discord were reporting idiots doing this with it on, and it's the biggest reason why they turned it off. You cant ban 1/2 the AO playerbase without shooting yourself in the foot
