Define soon. I'll be filing for Social Security in Nov 2026 (70 y/o). 😉



FWIW you can estimate the flight time from Buin to Cactus as 2+ hours at the A6M's nominal endurance airspeed of 115 KIAS (132 mph, 213kmph). 

The Zero carried 183 gallons of fuel and constant practice eked the average fuel consumption out from 35 gallons per hour to just eighteen, Saburō Sakai himself attaining under 17 gallons. Saburō Sakai explained just how this was achieved: To conserve fuel, we cruised at only 115 knots (59 mps) at 12,000 (4267.2m) feet altitude. Under normal full-power conditions, the Zero was capable of 275 knots and, when over-boosted for short emergencies, could reach its maximum speed of about 300 knots. On our long-range flights we lowered propeller revolutions to somewhere between 1,700 and 1,850 revs per minute, and throttled the air control valve to its leanest mixture. This furnished us the absolute minimum of power and speed, and we hung on the fringe of losing engine power at any time and stalling.

Any way you look at it, a 1:1 scale map could be problematic for the typical combat flight sim enthusiast. I'm hoping for time warp like we had in...
