Yes, the computation is simplified, nevertheless it provides excellent estimation of relative amount of drag produced ww2 fighters at max speed, often in between the error margins of ww2 flight testing. Can you tell us why?

When you started this thread you did not even knew the distinction between supercharger stages and supercharger speeds. Have you become and expert in the meanwhile? Where are those 3 stage superchargers you were hallucinating a couple of months ago around here?Where didn't I take into account that blowers gear shifts increase the amount of MP available?
What the heck are you mumbling there?
