I notice a change in the flight performance of the J7W1, was there an update with that or is it me? (was spaded a few weeks ago-----So I may have a placebo effect with it) As the post mentioned that some updates are not mentioned.

Wow the J2M has serious elevator compression issues now and its roll rate is very low across all speeds.... It actually makes sense that it was only used as an interceptor in real life and wasn't a very good air superiority fighter. 

 

Edit: It seems the premium J2M5 with the 30mm cannons is the only J2M that didn't get the new FM. It is inexplicably 20kmh faster than all the other J2Ms (including the regular-tree J2M5) at sea level, the same speed it had before yesterday's patch. It also still has the same elevator, rudder, and aileron authority that all the J2Ms had before the patch. Perhaps Gaijin forgot to apply the new FM to the prem J2M5, or they're still getting around to doing it?

 

Edit#2: Ok now it has the new FM

Excuse my basic knowledge of this stuff, but how will it affect these aircraft in combat?

Well, comparing the old J2M flight model to the new one, the new one has much more control stiffening above ~620kph. And its roll rate at all speeds is really bad. Those are not the traits you want in a good boom and zoomer. It is unable to get guns on target at higher speeds now. The J2M used to be known as the Japanese FW 190 because of its great control at high speeds but now it's basically limited to low-speed energy fighting, like a 109 (with slightly better turning ability than the 109 at slower speeds).

The SB bomber update, well it makes the plane almost unusable.  The SB series now has a hard time turning, not fast turning mind you, just turning in flight.  Add to it the fact the the third bomb, the one in the bomb bay, now releases with a delay.  The delay causes the third bomb to miss the target half the time of more due to a delayed drop.  The SB bomber bomb bay doors will not open using the "Open bomb bay doors" key, so there is no way to avoid this bomb drop delay for the 3rd bomb.
