Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Why was the Bf 109 so slow compared with the P51?

Without yet viewing the video, I'd have to say
it was because the German plane did not have
the Merlin engine.

But then I am biased. Perhaps mechanically racist.

That’s the short answer, Merlin + better fuel (130 octane or 150. Jerry had 95 IIRC) and two manifold/super charger ratio packages.

So how come the FW190 was pretty much a match to the P51.

According to one commentator the Americans considered the Bf109 the tougher opponent and the British considered the Fw190 the more dangerous.

This is a video of an air show of a Mustang D and a Fucker wolf. You have to read the description to get any information. He has odd comparisons like Fw190 vs. Corsair. Radial engine vs. radial engine is the only sense that would make.

Looked over a Messerschmidt 109 fighter at AF museum in Dayton Ohio. I was amazed at just how small it seemed.
