Yes I know, larger number equals go up faster. But is there an optimum angle? Speed? Boost only?

 

It gives vague ideas about power to weight of the aircraft, but not much else. Anyone have any idea of when it applies?

I was told it affects vertical turnfighting but not much else. Don't really have any other information, though. MARS says its irrelevant to actual climb performance these days

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Your not wrong. Yes there is. Also, Yes. But it is dependent on a lot of other factors. No
...   Whenever you pitch up to climb.


While in the hanger you can click on the link that opens up info about a plane. with a list of categories followed by a rating between 0-100.

One of those is Altitude.

In addition to telling you optimal altitude, and maximum altitude...

it will also tell you what your climb rate is on the bottom.
it is measured in (imperial or metric units of distance) of altitude gained per second. 

things that have large effects upon your Airspeed Rating (like an Advanced Up Tuned Engine) due to thrust or acceleration can also have a measurable change to your climb rate. Add as a result, your overall Altitude rating
 
How it works (specifically)

Using Boost will obviously make you go way faster and therefore capable of climbing vertically at 90 degrees off the horizon. 
But only for (in some cases a very brief) limited amounts of time.
