Performance?

Post seb »

hi i was wondering how this plane flys, it looks awsome i was just wondering is it from the p-38 styleish mould or more a-26, or maybe more b-17:P just wondering as it looks cool and looks like it could be thrown around.

I am bouncing this but the Uhu is a heavy fighter. No aerobatics for this bird. Very stable and solid. Fast and predictable but cannot be thrown around.

Get rid of the ammo, guns, and other payloads. Put the pilot and radar operator on a diet, at 180 lbs each. Cut the fuel load to minimal with center tanks. I promise you this plane can be flown as if Bob Hoover was at the controls, but only if it's light. Wing-overs, high-G (3.5+) turns, short takeoff/landings are all on the menu.

I've done this more or less permanently with all my warbirds in the aircraft.cfg file by either reducing possible number of station loads/fuel tanks or just plain deleting them. After all, this isn't CFS2, why do you need all that ammo? :mrgreen:

Weight/balance will be within limits, no issues.
