Hi,

What are the noob/easy to fly/hard to stall/easy to get kills in planes in FB? For both FBv1.00 and FBv1.22? Early middle late in the war?

Thanks

And yeah, if flown properly i'd say it is hard to stall.

Can't believe nobody mentioned the ultimate n00b plane: IP-153 biplane. Outturns everything in game, practically impossible to stall, will get u cursed at in a few servers, and two 20mm cannons. Can't get more n00b than that.

Sure you can, take an La-7 3xB20, it is fast, agile and has 3x20mm's. But yeah the I-153 is a really annoying plane. Its's definatly one of the more fun planes to fly in FB. Only trouble is taking off in it, that takes a fair amount of skill.

With the way its modeled the P51 is anything but a n00b plane...

I don't buy into the noob thing but by year I would say these are the best planes:

'42
-Mig-3U (fantasy plane)
-La-5 standard (most overmodelled plane in game. Speed statistics at SL are WAY high, I have yet to see any source claim anything close to the numbers this plane puts up, which are about the same as La-5F, sometimes better. Read La-5/7 in Action, its a real eye opener)
-109G-2 (performance is awesome)

'43
-La-5FN (great plane in RL, tough to beat, almost has it all)
-FW-190A-5 (Speed advantage over its contemporaries (except La-5FN), great high speed handling, good firepower)

'44
-La-7 (again, great plane in RL, little to no weakness)
-FW-190D (stunning performance, good escapability/survivability)
-Ki-84 (excellent all-around plane).
-P-51D (good up high, good speed, great high speed handling, big spread of firepower makes it easy to cripple opponents, good pilot=great plane)

This excludes Me-262 as it is in a class of its own.

I don't believe in "noob" planes.

My favorites are the FW190, the P-51D, the Yak-9U, and the P-47. I can shoot down and effectively engage any plane with possible exception of the I-153 which I can almost never get a good shot at but I'm usually going so fast they don't have a chance of hitting me either.

I do believe the La-7 is the easiest of mid to late war fighters to fly and perhaps the most dangerous. But I don't like flying it...I tend to be less deadly in a La-7 than in a FW190 anyways. To each is own...

Thanks everyone -

Me 262? I thought that would be a difficult plane to fly - don't you have to be careful about acceleration/engines or something?

I recall from playing MPS Aces Over Europe years ago I was abismal at the 262 because at high closure rates I had no chance of getting the target in my sights. Is it easier in IL2?

And is the p51 easy to fly or not?

A "noob" plane is a plane that makes you an ace overnight and requires little skill to fly. In other words, 95% of the planes you'll meet online. :)

The P-51 is very easy to fly if you have an alt advantage and keep your energy. Its guns are pretty lethal especially if you are a good shot. Other than that it sucks. Just my opinion. Loved it till I flew it. I expected more I guess.
