Greetings friends! I've had this question posed to me on another forum. For a long time I've been of the mind that at 525mph in a redlined dive the P-39 was the fastest single-engine, purely propeller driven aircraft of the war. Is that correct? And, this of course begs the question, what about mutli-engine ships (I love that in WWII they called their planes "ships" -- so cool to my mind)? Was the ME-110 the fastest? Mosquito? I've tried digging through testers' trials and only came up with solid data on the P-47 in its earliest trials before they added that big ol' paddle propeller. What about the FW-190 (the one with the huge engine onboard)? Thank you.
