Another way the graph is useful is to think of a 60-degree bank and the 2G load resulting as the maximum acceptable unless engaged in aerobatics (forget pitch angle for the moment and assume a constant altitude).
The simulation indicates that the maximum vertical loads of main gears are almost linearly dependent on the sinking speed, while the response of nose gear is very sensitive to the initial values of pitch angle and pitching inertia.

However, instead of measuring the blade's pitch angle, the pilot references the engine's rpm to set propeller pitch.
