    Maybe pilot was not quite skilled, but it didn't seems so cos he was doing excatly what he should, trying to outclimb me in a straight pattern.
    After some time he wen't into turn and that's where i got him leak and smoke with MG.
    After that he dived which wasn't a good maneuver cos i got on his 6 so close i could ram him....that's where i was out of ammo.
    Anyway merlin 70 on full power can last enough to catch and shot down runaway enemy.

    Nice.. So what is the main difference between Merlin 65 and 70?

    Merlin 70 is for high alts, other than that i really don't know.
    I'm to lazy to read specs, i just fly it till it blows up ))

    Ahahah..
    But I think that with the standard wings it could be easier to follow a 109...
    ( And I read that the Merlin 66 have a best climb rate.............)

    I simply want to look sexy with those clipped wings
    Standard wings should give some extra lift on certain AoA, how big impact on speed it has i don't know and how doeas it affect airflow and wingtip vortices

    Full wing will always provide more lift, but under c. 15,000 ft you probably do not need them as the Spit has a pretty low wing loading. IIRC the clipped wing offered about 5-10mph difference in terms of reduced form drag (at zero lift so no induced drag comparison) and weight. It should in theory offer a lower overall drag package because of cleaner separation at the tip but TBH I am not sure if this wereas actually true or not.

    The 66 plus clipped wings is demonic at low level..... if only I had my computer with me
