Sorry, I have some flight experience..and of course you will feel sideslip in RL..
There is a reason why the slipball is pushed left or right...that force you will feel on your body (leaning left or right).
The greater the sideslip the more you wil lean left or right in your seat.

But the main question remains … is the amount of wake turbulence tuned differend for the differend Aircraft.
Lighter Aircraft create less lift...so should create les wake turbulence.

Is this taken in account by ED.....and How ??

I think it is a valid and normal question...and should be easy to answer by ED...


Thanks for the answer already ED..

I hate to be a broken record but you should give the video Yo-Yo posted a watch, it shows a heavy plane and lighter plane and how the wake turbulence differs based off total lift, g loading, other factors. If you want to apply it to WWII, an Su-27 is about the weight of a B-17

Yo-Yo said that lift is calibrated in to wake
So difrence between su-27 and ww2 bird should be noticable
I think G load weight are both connected to lift directly
