    Does anybody know what the max speed of a Russian Petlyakov Pe-2 was?

    I have looked up many sources, and the max Speed seems to range from 335mph to 360mph.

    This seems to be a big differance and perhaps it could be explained by differant varians of the Pe-2?

    Can anybody clear this up for me?

    I believe the improved Pe-2FT had a maximum speed of 570 km/h which was 30 km/h faster than the original Pe-2.

    This site puts the improved Pe-2FT top speed at 335mph.

    If this is the case, does than mean claims the that Pe-2 top speed of 360mph are false?

    Yeah I meant to tell you that ...

    That site is pretty good in describing the Pe-2 but the data seem to be wrong as both the Pe-2 as the Pe-2FT have the same speed. So the Pe-2FT should get that 360 mph claim.

    Try this one: WW2 Warbirds: the Petlyakov Pe-2 Peshka - Frans Bonné

    Hi guys !!!
    If you are still interested in the datas.I've found that at 5000m Pe-2 max speed was 540 km/h ( powered by M-105R 1100 HP engines ) and Pe-2FT max speed was 581 km/h ( powered by WK-105PF 1260 HP engines )

    regards,
