Different world, but I've seen charts for engine-out takeoffs in
ISTM C5's and HerkyBirds {-135's}. [This is by inference; I recall
the charts and those are the only two beasts I got to see such
details for..] *think* there were 2 engine [one per side, of
course] out specs listed, too....

But this assumes the other guys are shooting at you, and you REALLY
want to takeoff...
