Yes I saw it when it was release. Again, I wasn't talking about how they work but how powerfull they are for so little planes.

Fred Akary would disagree with your instincts:

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....?
Remember that not only DCS dev make study
And surprised don't mean disagree

I tested war birds today and i will say that wake turbulence feels weak for me.

Well great. Now if you could tell us the scenario and all those details, that would be much more helpful.

I was taking off just after pair of p-51 i didn't encounter prop wash and i didn't encounter wake barely need to do anything then usual, when i lift off, i felt it like small dip in the road.
What i heard is that short interval take offs in prop planes was almost impossible to those factors. And i was maybe 2-3 length of plane behind.

Prop wash is not currently modelled from my understanding, only wingtip vortices.

Shame that most servers have this option turned off it is so boring w/o it.

It is a great feature, trouble being when you get a large amount of B-17s in formation, even on SP, frames plummet so those servers running WW2 scenarios that have groups of Fortresses spawning in de-activate the Wake Turbulence to keep it playable.

With all this realistic wake turbulence how do you account for your instinctive reaction on the controls? In real life, when the plane is thrown to a side you automatically react even as your brain is still realizing what is going on. How do you simulate that?
