Great to hear you'll be using the real thing for the sounds. An area often overlooked. Wasn't DCS: P51 done using the real thing though? I find that somewhat underwhelming at times so I hope you guys can pull it off, while it is no Merlin, the Griffon does have an awesome and powerful sound.. I'd love the full elliptical wing, it's just more appealing, I never did like the clipped wings. But accuracy is even more important so that decision is very understandable. I'm sure we'll see plenty of full winged versions over the years anyway. All the best on this one as with everything else you have on your plates.

The Griffon is just pure awesome, none of that namby pamby whistling and whining, it just growls across the sky like a prolonged Jeremy Clarkson "POWERRRR!!!".

You know, I did wonder the other day just how many Nandos chickens you could fit in the cockpit of a Spitfire.

I wonder if it would be enough to satiate Pman...

I think the hot sauce would damage something.

I prefer clipped wing since spitfire xiv turn rate/climb/speed already good enough, roll rate is the last chance for Dora but clipped wing finishes it.

The only ultimate performace spitire XIV coudn't provide is dive while Dora shares rough same dive acceleration with XIV. If you wanna experience best piston dive, get tempest/p47P51s.

I'm very surprised by that graph! Clipped wings made an enormous difference it seems. And even up to 300mph IAS the full wing spit wasn't as bad as I feared in roll.

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.

You do know that the Spitfire in the graph is a MK V.

I dont think that was meant as a reference for the MkXiv but more as an indication as to the marked improvement clipped wings gives vs eliptical ones.

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

As for the fabric ailerons I haven't gathered detailed data on the early models so I can't confirm or dispute that. Yet.

Nothing after the MkV had fabric ailerons.
