Indeed, I just tested it myself at about 75m altitude and did no better than 170km/h (radiator closed just to be sure). Your own published stats show a speed of 186km/h for the Albatros DVa, FYI. The best TAS for the Albatros DVa is supposed to be at sea level.

I just tried it myself, simple gauges, no wind, warmed up engine. I had about 170km/h at 40m in any direction (in case wind is still on) with full fuel and full ammunition. But I believe lefty actually said that the speed was changed from 167 to 170 so the only question is why the description says otherwise.

One or the other is off, but 186km/h is the airspeed I've seen published from a variety of different sources for the DVa's max TAS.

There is also another thread about this:

Yes, the DVa (and Albatros DIII) are way too slow. I send Petrovich a private message before the release of update 1.008 (late october), he said he would increase that in 1.009 and according to Lefty, they did "increase" (i don't see a difference, maybe 2-3 kph but can't tell from simple gauges) the maximum speed to 170 kph, which is still about 15 kph too slow.

I've no idea why they didn't set that to a realistic value, but whatever. I mean they must know that we don't make a 6-7 page long thread about a 2-3 kph too slow plane. It's a serious problem, probably the biggest FM problem in ROF right now, imho.

just checked

Alb DVa -> max speed (level flight) 170kmh
Alb DIIIa -> max speed (level flight) 173kmh

BUT in their store in description say Alb. Dva max speed was 186 kmh…also various infos from the net are around that number….
