a pretty interesting history?

This is a plane I would like to see
in PF.

Not many knows that this fighter
saw operational use in the Pasific

Oberleutnant Oskar-Walter Romm thoughts on his aircraft.

"I found the Fw 190D-9 to be greatly superior to those of my opponents. During dogfights at altitudes of between about 10,000 and 24,000ft, usual when meeting the Russians, I found that I could pull the D-9 into a tight turn and still retain my speed advantage. In the descent the Dora-9 picked up speed much more rapidly than the A type; in the dive it could leave the Russian Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighters standing."

The P-43 had a larger contribution than many know. It helped in the development of one of the best fighters of the war, the P-47. I too would like to see the Lancer make it into PF. Very nice looking bird for obvious reasons.

The Republic P-43 Lancer was an American single seat fighter aircraft of the Second World War, entering service in early 1941. It was armed with four .50 inch calibre machine-guns and carried six 20 lb. Bombs. A Pratt and Whitney R-1830-57 Twin Wasp radial engine of 1200 hp provided a top speed of 356 mph and a range of 1046 km.

THIS would be a good opponent for the A6M-5 Zero.

"The P-43 had a larger contribution than many know. It helped in the development of one of the best fighters of the war, the P-47."

The P-43 itself wasn't very successful, and essentially it was only ordered by the USAAC as they knew that the development from it, the P-47 _was_ going to be something special. Given the precarious nature of some of the US aircraft manufacturers after the depression (the B17 came close to bankrupting Boeing) they needed to throw Republic a bone to keep them going whilst they made the improvements necessary to make the P-47. And just as well they did!

it seems like some of you who posted here hasn´t read the big text on the P-43 I linked.
you really should because it is the best there is on this fighter,almost every other text you will find on it are historically incorrect.

SO DON´T FORGET TO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE TEXT.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gifOne problem with the P-43 was that it did not have proper Self Sealing Fuel Tanks.
And that alone is a big Problem in Combat.
