I agree with wulf it is extreme for WW2 warbirds for my tastes.

Negative.

The wake turbulence is a thing that is based mostly on conservation laws, so the laws for it is quite obvious.

But it surely depends on several factors like wingspan, speed, weight, atmospheric conditions, etc. I highly doubt that is correctly calculated in DCS.

Of course this parameters are involved but the point is that all these parameters are parts of the conservation law.

And, to be correct, not weight but lift.

And, of course, they all are correctly calculated.

If you are sure.
I'm surprised but I'm for realism

Did you watch the video Yo-Yo linked? Even G load is taken into account

Remember, if you want to convince someone, show him a bit more other than saying "of course it's correct".

Because we are all have flow warbirds and we know that wake turbulence is over done.

I would like to see some more in-depth discussion on it, actually. Maybe if not to prove a point, to show how some of the math and theory is present (or perhaps not present) in DCS

Oh good, the "I feel" brigade back again with how it can't possibly be correct cos their instincts - which we should all bow down to and hold in esteem over any mathematical data and carefully calculated models provided by experts in aerodynamic simulations - tell them so.

Fred Akary would disagree with your instincts:

https://youtu.be/sqTzazYDNDQ?t=380

And there is speculative but credible reasoning to believe that Mark Hannah's tragically fatal accident in a Buchon in Spain was possibly caused by encountering the lingering wake turbulence from his own run and break pass whilst turning on final to land.

Neither of these point to wake turbulence from WW2 fighter a/c being insignificant; you wanna contest the quantitive factor of this argument then you better start hitting your aerodynamics text books & have a calculator handy.

Oh, hang on a mo! That's exactly what Yo-Yo has done! A professional software aerodynamist!

Your credentials and contradictory data....?
