    P-40 not that bad to kill bombers?

    It's not the plane that matters its the pilot. Sometimes you have no or limited choice A good pilot can make the most of a plane. A bad pilot can make best plane look useless. Seriously 90% of your questions are answered in In Persuit, in the download folder I mentioned before or download from here https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.virtualpilots.fi/feature/lento_ohjeet/inpursuit/inpursuit.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwif4ryw5c7fAhWfThUIHQSSBE4QFjAJegQICRAB&usg=AOvVaw1SoicuTRqjZ_d4jgZ7fzdU Then you need to practice as Sid said
  4. Apologies, the dora is the late version of the Focke-Wulf 190 fitted with Junkers Jumo in line engine as aposed to the BMW radial for the A seriese Dora is for D, must have been some kind of Germal phonetic alphabet, some common ones used for Luftwaffe were A is Anton D is Dora E is Emil F is Friedrich G is Gustav the video you show seems to be of an emergancy type landing by modern aircraft at an unsecured airfield, not typical. If you need to get down hot and fast then try to practice the guidelines in the links I sent above and once smooth with standard approach then come in faster and then chop throttle and use flaps and sideslip to slow later in path, you will still need to be at correct speed, rate of descent and straight as you cross parimeter. good luck
  5. No, due to its design the me 262 required a long straight approach as it slowed down to land, to counter the high losses the Luftwaffe relied on flak alleys on approach route and then dora 9s as fighter cover over airfield during landing. I dont know where you found references to the approach you try but I have never seen it quoted as a technique used in real life and cant imagine where or when it would be used apart from as an emergency technique to prevent aircraft being shot down by hand held missiles say in Afghanistan where the perimeter could not be guaranteed as secure. I have seen some weird and wonderful tecniques tried online but mostly unsuccessfully, and online it does not matter how badly you land and beat up an aircraft, it costs nothing, you are never hurt and all you have to do is hit refly to be on your way again . As in most things softly, slowley,smoothly leads to best results in landing. S Delta
  6. I very much doubt it, why would anyone want to do such drastic manouvers ? If your aircraft was damaged you would place great strain on it, you also risk stalls or overshoots, I would think that the vast majority of landings were as part of a squadron formation and in a controlled path and rate of descent. If you want to find out standard approach then go here https://www.av8n.com/how/ section 12 deals with landings section 6 deals with angle of attack
  7. I wouldn't try this type of approach, angle of approach is too steep and controls too jerky so high risk of stall if too slow or as in the video overshoot if oo fast. I'm not the best at landings so use long approach, check speed to control rate of descent and if I need to bleed speed use side slip early and then line up making sure I cross end of runway at correct speed for that aircraft, flare out and drop gently onto runway. If Runway is hot and enemy near then don't land, find a quieter one if possible
  8. No problem, there is a lot of info there but if you want to survive online it boils down to Speed, Altitude, Surprise, know your aircraft relative strengths and plan your attack by Observe, Orientate ,Decide, Attack. As painless says flying on comms and with wingmen helps a LOT We all still do common mistakes and sometimes its good just flying for fun and going into a furball and turning and burning but you wont last long. S Dave
  9. If you want some advise and tips I have put up a folder in the downloads section , it included NO Guts No GLory and In Persuit as well as others, the most obvious thing in not to attack bombers at dead six and watch your angle of attack you seem to pull up sharply or fly nose up very often and that leads to loss of speed , stalls etc. If you know all this already then apologies for stating the obvious.
