Why is any World War 2 airplane slower than a World War 1 airplane why did we speed up World War 1 airplanes so much

Just as I got used to the elite format it changed it makes no sense why the first level British World War 2 airplane is slower than my World War 1 biplanes

Dont forget the WW1 Wundabar turbo App from fukengruven German engineering software partners out of Berlin. That gives you at least another 25 knots :ohmy: :unsure: :P

The real WW1 planes ranged in speed from around 150kmh to 230kmh....pretty close to the speeds according to the game.

The real WW2 ME109 and the P40 were around 600kmh. Lol. Imagine if they were able to cross the map 3 x faster than the WW1 planes!

Actually the dr1 tri-wing was not very fast. It's big advantage was maneuverability.
The SE5a could do something like 230 kmh

I found a great website by searching "Speed comparison of WW1 aircraft" (same for WW2)

www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/ww1-air...-ranked-by-speed.asp

Guys it doesn't matter which World War 1 playing as faster all that matters is that every World War II plane was faster than any of the World War 1 planes
