Does anyone have good performance data for the various aircraft of the I16 series?

Guys, I menage to shot down AI flown F-80s, sometimes (if I have luck) even F-86 with La-7, so don't tell me that it's AI which is OP. I mean, just fly it, it feels like you were handling an X-wing. It's too easy to fly, to stall it you need do it on purpose and still, you need to put a bit of work in it. Hopefully La-9 are already out - they are more whimsical and thus more rewarding to fly.

Bear in mind that captured aircraft usually were not in pristine condition, often having suffered batle damage. The captors usually didn't have a supply of spare parts or manuals to properly maintain their booty, so testing would probably result in lower performance that obtainable if the aircraft were maintained by mechanics fully conversant with their equipment and backed up by a proper spare parts supply.

Oh dear, not this again... ;)

The VVS aircraft are good, but not invincible. The ai can pretty much excel in everything so they don't count. Human players are a different story. A new player in an La-7 will not necessarily do well against an experience person flying a lesser aircraft, if you don't believe me try flying that -5 or -7 on a sever populated with experienced 109 drivers....not pretty :D. On servers that don't use historical plane sets, you'll often see everybody in either an La-7 or a Spit 25lb because if you fly them long enough, you will be pretty much untouchable because irl those two aircraft were very, very good.


I must agree!

And don't forget the I-153!
I wonder how those steel tube framed/fabric covered biplanes can do what they do (ingame...)
Germans would have never gone beyond Bug and Neman rivers if the Soviets had such "Super Weapons" available. :D

As a previous poster noted, if you are flying against the VVS, you'll generally do better above 4000m or using BnZ flying, don't forget, the VVS kites break up at relatively low speed compared to, say, an FW190 or Jug.

That said, if the friendly ai was better at team tactics and cover, it would be a lot more fun to fly offline against the VVS if they are set at anything above average.

Good hunting!


  LOL, I mean about realistic FM, nothing about improve, make easy or hard, just real data, clear now?
