However, that is actual what is needed in a turning fight, hence the attacker need to be able to turn rather tighter than the persued! Getting the one in front into the gun-sight does obviously demand a tighter turn. To this are to add more for aiming afront of the persued.
His special topic was how the slats on the Bf 109 enabled it to fly at higher AoA, turn inside a Spitfire and shoot across the circle.
Whether the LE slats on the 109 was providing this ability or not are based in whether there exist a turning-stall term or not: Can an aircraft turn hard enough to create a spin?
If this is the case, it might be to read in the stall-speed of the 109 compared to it's opponents: If it's remarkable lower there might be some wisdom in the statement, but I doubt!
Who got the numbers? Jeff??
