Re: Low altitude tests: P-47 vs. Fw 190

I've the report as "original" from the web.

"below 250 mph - the ability of the Fw-190 to hang in its propellor and turn inside the p-47 was evident."

Note also: climbing at 250(400kph)mph was not the best climbspeed for the Fw-190. Fw-190 climbed best at 174mph(280kph).

Conclusion for me:
P-47 was the better high-speed fighter.
