Has anyone seen CY6 statistics for the later P-40 models?

Right now I'm specifically interested in adding P-40Fs to a North Africa campaign, but someday I may want to play with P-40Ns or P-40Ks.

Failing that, any help deriving speed, climb and dive stats might be helpful. I'd love to know how these numbers are generated – even if the answer is "fudged for relative performance".

Try the Cy6 Yahoo group. Loads of extra stats there.

Thanks, but been there, did that. I admit I haven't scoured every last nook and cranny of the Yahoo group, but I did look over all the files and search the email archives. I only found one conversation in which a guy named Tom Michael guessed the stats pretty much the same way I did. Great minds think alike, I guess. :-)

It would be much more interesting to know if there is a statistical basis for things like climb and dive ratings, so I can estimate a number instead of just guessing wildly based on relative performance values with contemporaries.
