Hi all,

No not another what is the best plane topic...http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I am quite new in this game, and have always flown this FW190 K14 i think. The one with the 3 bad *** cannons. Good firepower, one disadvantage, don't try to climb or turn..heheh

I need a good manouvrable plane, sharp turning, overall performance on all altitudes, and reasonable firpower.
I have read some posts, and currenly i am flying the the P-47. Stick with it or change?

Any reccomendations?

thanks!

Fiat CR.42 sounds like what you need, if you into the kinky early WAR kind of thing.

Hmm, the P47 is a very good plane, but it doesn't sound like what you are looking for. It's very large and heavy with a big radial engine, which means it's fast in a straight line or dive and durable as hell. Not a good turn fighter and sometimes the 8 .50 cals aren't so great. It also requires alot of patience because you MUST start from high altitude or you will get shot down alot.

The P47 is only maneuverable at high speeds. Sounds like you want a Spit Mk. IXe. Reasonably high speed, very sharp turn, great firepower in the form of 2 hard hitting 20mm Hispano cannons and 2 .50 cal MG's, and it's equally suited for fighting on the deck or up to about 6000 meters. One notable advantage is the engine takes forever to overheat, so if running a plane flat out all the time is your style, then it's a good ride.

Some drawbacks are it's liquid cooled engine is not durable, the ammunition load is pretty small, and it's not as fast as alot of the '44 planes. It will hold it's own in a turn fight and do alright in an energy fight, but don't expect to catch a late 109 or 190 if you don't have room to dive.

I`d say P63 but it`s extremely rare so P39 is the plane you want.

Except the 37mm is a potato cannon. The twin 20's in the spit are more accurate and have more predictable ballistics. Plus if flown right, the spit turns tighter and stalls less easily.

"You must factor in the alignment of the planets for the day in which the equation is completed, because the Spit can harness the power of the Earth's rotation and we're working on harnessing the power of ALL rotating and revolving objects in our solar system, later the whole universe, thus boosting the Spit's top speed to r0xx0rz KPH." -Dr. Nathan Roberts

ya in this game anything russian would be your best choice la7 being IMO the best. fast,turns great,durible and good fire power.

when you get aep and patch it up to date the U.S planes become more useble thanks to the more acurate 50.s.thay are great for flyers who want something thay can win in yet not something thats easy to win in.the spit is great but there is 2 things that keep me out of them online 1 is while thay pack a deceant punch with the 20.s but thay run out of ammo fast so you have to be a real good shot. the 2nd thing is at least for me if it takes even a small amount of hits thay lose there edge in a dog fight and wont turn worth a dang.the p51 is a good all around fighter,what the p47 lacks in turn speed it makes up for in durabilty and a large ammo load.the p38 in this game is IMO .....not a good choice online in a dog fight aginst a enemy that knows what he is doing what so ever.
ofcourse thats just what i think
