Should a MiG-29S do 1640kph at 20m?

Recommended Posts

Most modern fighters can achieve mach 1.2 max speed at sea level in clean configuration, so its not far off real life.


My PC specs below:

Case: Corsair 400C

PSU: SEASONIC SS-760XP2 760W Platinum

CPU: AMD RYZEN 3900X (12C/24T)

RAM: 32 GB 4266Mhz (two 2x8 kits) of trident Z RGB @3600Mhz CL 14 CR=1T


GFX: GTX 1080Ti MSI Gaming X

Cooler: NXZT Kraken X62 280mm AIO

Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 1TB M.2+6GB WD 6Gb red

HOTAS: Thrustmaster Warthog + CH pro pedals

Monitor: Gigabyte AORUS AD27QD Freesync HDR400 1440P

I got rid of all my weapons and went for a fly, got to a very strange speed. Had immortality turned on. Would aircraft have broke otherwise?


Did those speeds and the Mig29s held together. What you have to worry about is a high speed stall.

Which is what he said, isn't it? :)

Basically, he means that it's not really a "very strange" speed, it's "not far off".




Basically, it is somewhere around 0.1 mach too fast. Was this level flight, and what was the pressure and temperature? (For example, if temp is 30C, we're looking at a ~0.05 error.)
