Report No 001
The plane handles very well.
Controls respond positively.
Stable and very easy to fly.
Quite fast and good traction level flight.
Quite deft and confidant.
Cannot sustain any manoeuvre ( 1/4 S at best before critical energy loss. )
Easily damaged by enemy fire.
>Attacking strategy: (solitary predation )
Attack from behind.
Attack an AC that is not aware of your presence
Telescope your attack to coincide with predicted enemy path. (fly straight do not turn)
Attack hard. (constant accurate fire do not let up)
Disengage Immediately after attack
note: A fast diving attack will reduce "in range" time significantly.
Shallow dive away (do not turn or attempt to dive steeply )
Radiate away from enemy. (Reduce silhouette)
Do not return to engage if followed.
Note: Maintain max IAS at all time.
Extreme energy loss.
>Warning signs of energy loss:
Dramatic reduction of engine note.
Loss of IAS
> Remedial action:
Immediately replace power plant.
AC is significantly underpowered.
note: Ac will produce good results if it can sustain a fast smaller turn.
Kills by N.28 require skill and strategy from veteran pilots which would be wasted on this AC.
Continuous attacks by waves of N.28's could succeed but only under excellent conditions.
This could be a waste of higher pilot skill and the required daring.
The plane itself is essentially sound and is very easy to fly.
It has punch but no follow up at all.
It is wildly underpowered.
