I know the basic fighters like the BF109, Macchi, P-40, Hurricane, and Spitfire but which specific types were there? For example where any G-2 Trops there or was it just F-4's

Hi there! I am just asking this question because my memory is a little foggy. Didn’t the A series not perform well above 6000 meters because the Kommandogerat system couldn’t function well at high altitude? Did the Jumo 213 in the Dora have an improved Kommandogerat system or was its horsepower...
Hi all, I’ve taken a keen interest in the P-47 over the last two months, and was just curious if anyone knows of books that have:

Doesn’t have to meet every criterion listed, just wondering :) Many thanks!

Hi everybody, I’m excited to be a part of this forum. This is actually my first post 🤩!
I’ve got a question!
Does anybody know at what speed a WW2-fighterplane is going down, after it was hit?
And how long (minutes/seconds) would it take till it reached the ground and crashed?
I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post.
I hope somebody can help me with some questions I have.
I'm not familiar at alle with the Wildcat, USN and USAAF in general, that's why I'm reaching out to you guys.
