the thing is uncatchable, or uninteresting, apparently.. I did do another milkrun, with 500's only.. By the end of it, I was at 37000msl, doing 410mph well back in my own lands, with 50 mins of fuel left. Flew over most of the smpizza map, hit 5 towns (flew over 6 but didnt drop on one).. never saw an enemy con.. maybe one bar in one sector, but that was it.

So, not currently having a workable setup, how potent is it?  How hard to intercept?

Im amazed how many people will up a 262 and chase a single Mossie for four or five sectors and die in the ack for the chance at one kill.

Test loadout 4k cookie Large DTs and 100 fuel. I made eight rearms. After climbing to 28k I would drop tanks regardless of how much fuel was remaining but fuel remaining was usually only between 23 and 43 gallons depending on whether I used WEP in the climb. I usually had 50-60 miles to accelerate before dropping. After dropping I would accelerate to 400 in a dive to 27k. Speed might drop to 397 after level and would be higher with less fuel onboard.

Climb from 0.8k to 28k takes about 24 minutes. Calibration should be for 360-62 mph at 28k. Time remaining varied according to how much WEP I used accelerating away from the drop. Range remaining exceeded 400 miles. This might be why you wont see this airplane on small maps (not enabled).

On my last landing I saw a con popup from ground clutter at the base to the north of my position. Clearly he was trying to intercept me but chose the wrong base. I had been rearming further away but I was toying with turn-around times to see what I could get away with. When he came south I could see it was a 262 and when he got to 1.5k range I towered. He augered.  :rofl

If I had stayed on my original course of action he never would have gotten close and probably would have died in asset ack.

A P-51D did try to intercept me also (earlier). He had an excellent line but he was about 14k too low. In trying to climb to me he never got within icon range. If you stay at 28k I doubt even a 109K4 could launch and catch you but you cant play dumb about it.

I think the Arados are better worth the perks.

Sortie damage was 56k and damage points exceeded 3 million.

I think they just need to be alive when your plane lands safely.

This is true.  The drones need to be with you when you land.  They don't need to be on the runway to keep the perks.

It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses... HIT IT. :aok
