S!

You might want to first try flying on a non mixed planeset server...I find them to not only be more realistic, but also more fun.

But if you're keen on switching over, the D10 is the most maneuverable. But, like the D22, it suffers from visibility, esp. when in the gunsight view. The D27 has better visibility thanks to the bubble canopy and has more loadout options, but is a bit less maneuverable. So its a tradeoff really, but I'd go with the D27 if I where you, because no matter what version you fly, you should be using BnZ tactics (unless flying against gibbage, then you should be a "real man" and TnB with him! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)

Hope that helped, P47 is a great plane to fly and you'll soon begin to appreciate it's awesome firepower, dive ability, and strenght.

S! And good luck!

I've been messing around with the D27 a bit today and I prefer it over the P51 over about 7000m. Turns like a barge but the speed at height is great and a a quick burst at convergence range brings most things down. Down low it's a bit like a beached whale though.

I prefer the D-10 because it is faster and has a better climb. Visibility is bad, but you get used to it. With the D-10 you can mix it up with most FW-190's and many late war 109's in a dogfight and win.

I also think that the cockpit is more rugged, less PK's, and seeing as a PK is just about the only thing that will bring a Jug down . . . .

D-10 has much much better roll rate, also.

D-27 has the best climb and low level speed but the worst roll rate. D-27 also has the best view.

D-10 is the best roller and faster than the D-22.

D-22 can carry the most air to ground ordnance
