AXIS:BF 109 E-4/B(i like it much more than the G series, mainly due to the fact nose cannons annoy me.)
ALLIED:too many, Spitfire, mustang, J8A

For the allies, The LA5-7 series

Dunno what the best is but I know the ones I like:

Allied: P47D-27 (tough, fast, deadly firepower)
Axis: FW190 A6 or A9.(fast and the A9 has the most destructive firepower going)

Im a closet Fw190 fan.

The best is..... Any plane you can get off the ground, return and land in one piece.

That's half the battle, the rest is practice because the God of AI is after you, if you only fly COOP missions. If you fly DFs, you're your own worse enemy. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A properly flown D-9 owns all.

Closest competitors, P-51, K4, La-7 and the soon to come Tempest.

http://members.chello.se/unni/D-9.JPG

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."

Propeller:

Ki-84-Ic

Great maneuvrability.
Good speed and acceleration.
Very heavy armament (2x20 mm + 2x30 mm cannons).


Jets:

Me-262A

If you keep speed &gt; 700 km/h and don't TnB, you're intouchable!
4x30 mm cannons is an awesome firepower!


Look:

P-40M
Just looks too beutyful and aggressive with a sharkmouth on that big chin!

Repeat after me:

The best aeroplane in FB is the one with the best pilot flying it.

So now you can get debating about who's the best pilot http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This really needs to be broken down into year so here are my votes. Prop driven (in no particular order and one for each side).

1941:

-Bf-109F-4
-Spitfire V

*Mig-3 AM-38 is close.

1942:

-Bf-109G-2
-Mig-3U


1943:

-FW-190A-6
-Spitfire IX


1944+:

-FW-190D-9 ('44)
-La-7

*P-51D, FW-190A-9, Ta-152H, Ki-84, and P-63C are also very good. Haven't tried the new late Yaks.


Still, there are many variables as well. As they say in boxing, styles make the fight.

Simple answer: The one you are most proficient with.

For me...the FW190 and the Spitfire.

Other than Hunde, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the p63. It's fast, maneuvers well,has got great punch and takes quite a beating too. My vote goes for the la7 though.

08-24-2004, 01:08 AM
I don't understand why planes that don't carry bombs get a vote at all...

Best plane for precise high punch strikes with high chance of surivaval is the FW 190.

In the right hands the Tempest will rule below 20,000ft (ie all DF servers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) but above that its easy pickings to the likes of the 109G/K and the Fw190's/Ta152.
