Agree. But you still can have fun and nice scores with it, because...

...you are doing it wrong if you have troubles with them keeping up with you - point is in you keeping up with them.

Not to mention the fact that 47N has 8 Brownings, and 20 seconds of boost. Heavies may keep up, but most LF will loose breath. Plus, 900kph dive speed is nothing to sneeze at. I'd agree with zen here, you're doing it wrong.

 

Also, wrong examples. Fw 190 A-5 doesn't exceed 700kph; 109G has lower dive speed AND lower max boost speed; Me410 doesn't exceed 700kph neither, dive speeds are lower than that of the 47N; 109Z is faster, but again has lower dive speed; so does F7F - faster in level flight, lower dive speed. Only P-51D outmatches both level and dive speed of the Jug. Don't panic, check your numbers twice. Important factor: while your max level flight speed varies depending if you sport ordnance or not, dive speed remains the same regardless of it, and for the Jug it's one of the highest values around.

Yeah, well ... in theory those specs look nice, but in the game I sometimes get the impression that especially bots are not restricted by them. Just now I was chased over the entire map by a bot 190A8 ... he not only kept up, despite the fact that I had shot him up ; he gained on me ! And shot me.

Anyway, I keep grinding. Only 8000 points to go ... that's 40 enemy kills. The specialization requirements for multi-roles are a joke.

At long last ... I think it's the only plane in the Republic tree that I managed to specialize.
