I love old WW2 movies and soundtracks. Something about it makes me feel proud to be alive !!

Water injection as well - I did not know they used that back in dubya dubya 2.

Full Military Power, or FMP.

That might have to be a new slogan. Crap did you see that guy, ya he was going FMP. But don't say full FMP or it sounds as dumb as .pdf document, or .pdf file ............

Most of the best data on water injection I can find is from experiments done during WWII. There are many declassified NACA documents that explain all their findings.
What is funny is that till this day people still dont get it. Even the people making these water injection kits obviously have not read these valuable papers.

Basically, the idea of a 50/50 water/meth mix came from the testing they did, and was decided on because of the need for additional fueling under load/higher boost, and because of icing problems at high altitude. The data itself shows that pure water injection make way more sense now with the easy of use of EFI. Most people dont need to worry about icing either.

Just water plus a little alcohol for preventing algae bloom is the way to go.

Great plane, but you just missed the greatest plane by bit, altho this too had two engines, the Coolest and meanest was (drumroll...)

De Havilland Mosquito


What else was made from Balsa wood to save weight, aluminium and steel, capable to carry more bomb load than B-17 on long trips (Berlin example), out run everything else on speed while being easy to fly, even at 30ft above the ground often returning with leafs and braches hanging from tail be effective fighter, night fighter, target bomber, tactical bomber, fast bomber, fighter bomber, maritime strike aircraft (carrying torpedo's when needed), a pathfinder, intruder and Fast photo-reconnaissance aircraft?

And all this topped with soundtrack of two merlin V12's.

Now that I opened the can of wwII worms, let the best of list carry on...

Going to go with one of my favorites. Not the best, or most effective, but probably one of my favorite planes([email protected]) of WWII.

The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka...

So everyone knows how the Japanese would use Kamikaze pilots to damage large warships, buildings, and entrenchments? Well instead of using legit multirole aircraft, they designed a purpose built, manned missile. This thing was stocked up with three rockets and propelled the missile to about 600mph, which is srs bidnez back in WWII. Packed enough power to cripple most US watercraft (except for anything large like a battleship or carrier). The idea behind it was very simple, create something so fast, and so difficult to intercept that you wouldn't need a large number of them to wreak huge amounts of damage. While preserving your expensive multirole fighters.

These missiles were extremely cheap to make, and the flight instruments were very, primitive.

Now in real life? These things didn't perform so well. First documented use of these in combat yielded a zero percent efficiency rating, since none hit any targets. And they could only be deployed from a "mothership" of sorts. And the range from these things wasn't exactly super long either, so bombers carrying them were prone to getting shot down.

However, anytime they were used (later on in the war) they did cause massive damage when they would hit. But the combination of going so incredibly fast, and the lack of any real piloting controls rendered this thing extremely difficult to fly and aim at any moving targets.

Anyway, thing was a dope idea.
