This site contains tables of figures which are my attempt to classify
the DoA aircraft, as modeled, into some order of comparison. The tests I
used were loosely based on Hoof's WarBirds performance tests.
In version 1.3 of Dawn of Aces we were introduced to the Zeppelin and
Artillery.... yet it is the fighter/scout aircraft which this site deals
with. The differences in performance are not that great for the most part.
They may seem that way "on paper" but out over the trenches, in
a turn fight for your life, you would be wise not to concentrate on the
slide rule. Different fuel weights, ordnance loads, "Energy",
and even an aircraft that has had its landing gear knocked off will cross
over those differences and take the fight away from you.
The figures in the tables on the following pages are the simple result
of offline testing using the Full Realism flight model. Fuel, speed, and
altitude gauges were peered at, tests were run once or twice, averages were
taken, and the results written down in pencil.
Standard disclaimers apply... these figures are not official and may
