Minimum radius turn


Recommended Posts

Anyone knows how to fly a minimum radius turn with the F-18 ? What speed and how many G‘s !?

I believe it's 360kts, just pull to hold this number.



These are the only charts I've seen about this https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=217414&page=2



IvanK (ED Tester) in that thread is a former F/A-18 pilot, so 360kts

Download PDF Tutorial guides to help get up to speed with aircraft quickly and also great for taking a good look at the aircraft available for DCS before purchasing. Link

Your right to clear things up.

Best turn radius is below corner @ Lift-limit. Near stall speed, you are not able to maintain stabilized energy state.

Radius speed band is from appr. 150 to 300kts.

The charts by the way are about energy-maneuverability not only about turn rate. It is also about turn radius.
