This is probably the most frequently asked question regarding the Wolfpack campaign: how can I keep up with the AI when they climb?


AI climb speeds are hard coded, and while it's not easy, it's not impossible either:


- anticipate the climb. react immediately.

- unlink the throttle, throttle maxed out, turbo to 52" of MP

- RPM: 2550

- cowl flaps closed

- manage your intercooler and oil cooler as needed (temps can get away easily!)

- center the ball, and trim your aircraft perfectly. This is crucial, otherwise you'll have more drag than the AI.

- Never slow down below 155 mph. That means you try to climb too steep, which is less than optimal. The AI will pull away.

- If you get too slow, it's VERY hard to accelerate again in a climb, and the AI will pull away.


Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it after 1-2 missions. Check out my playthrough video  of mission 9 to see how it works in practice:
