The Cool Factor
It's not about which plane is faster, climbs better, has more ammo, or turns tighter. It's not even about which one it's the best. It's simply about who has it... and who hasn't.

My Cool list

The MiG-3ud. Not the safest ride, not the most reliable. Burns easy breaks fast. If you want to see the end of the war, pick another ride. This is a racing plane with guns. Coolness with wings.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/cool_mig3.jpg

The Bf-109 E4. Small outside, crampted inside. Moscas will loop around you, but who cares. If looks could kill the Emil will be an ace-maker.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/cool_109e.jpg

The Falco. Forget about the view outside. It just doesn't have any. So what. This is not a plane to see from. It's a plane to be seen in.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/cool_cr42.jpg

The G50. A monoplane with open cockpit. What else do you need? Cool shades compulsory.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/cool_g50.jpg

The P51B. If Dirty Harry was a fighter jock this would be his ride. Go Ahead, Jerry, Make My Day.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/cool_p51b.jpg

The Uncool

The P-51D. Fast, reliable, huge range and massive punch. Yawn. Taxi drivers apply here.
http://www.haddock.f2s.com/il2/cool/uncool_p51d.jpg

And you. What is your cool list? Cheesy comments welcome.

I don't agree that the 109 E-4 belongs on the cool wall because it is the flying equivalent of a BMW or a Porsche. There are no BMWs or Porsches on the cool end of the cool wall. Apart from that I think you've got the rest spot on. Actually, not sure anything with the name Mustang can be cool. No, I'm pretty sure it can't.

My nomination for cool would be the Mosquito. Can't really explain why, but to me it has a feeling of coolness about it, which is what we are looking for.
http://www.simonides.org/~raf264sqn/images/mosquito-002.jpg

The FW190 has to be uncool, it's fast and has firepower. Dives on unsuspecting planes, blows them to bits and then runs away into the sky again. Not cool.

lol, I'm looking forward to seeing some of the replys to this thread. Anyone who has never watched Top Gear will not understand I fear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Edit: I think the Ta 152 may be cool cus of the wings, not sure though. This is hard.

LOL. Point taken. The Emil is a BMW after all, so it has to move to the uncool side of the wall. Looks cool but it's a bit of a drug-dealer plane http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Agreed about the Mosquito. The wooden wonder has bags of character. It has to be cool.

My cool list

The single seat IL-2. Who needs a reargunner when you can fly as a fighter and still be a menace to the grunts on the ground.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v40/Olli72/news/2.jpg

The Bf110. It has a nice greenhouse canopy and two engines. Besides..any plane that can tug gliders has a coolfactor.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v40/Olli72/news/3.jpg

The Tb-3. Only marginally faster than grandpa's moped. Open cockpit for a nice view and the SPB version can carry 2 babies. The 4 engines with fire extinguishers will keep you from becoming a flying barbeque. Whatever you do, dont nosepark it; You & your crew have fragile bones from Stalins diet and will die when you jump out.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v40/Olli72/news/1.jpg

The Me163 Komet. Bulletshaped, fast and a skid for landing. Contact with the fuel will melt you to a meatjello. Fun.

In the words of Jeremy Clarkson: WRONG! Nothing with a big toothy mouth painted on it can ever be cool http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif.

The Spitfire certainly goes on the cool side of the wall, but I think it's borderline because it is too popular and common. Although I love it I don't think the Hurricane has the coolness factor.

I'm not convinced about the IL2 or the 110. The IL2 is like a Skoda and the 110 is an X5. Neither of which are cool.

The TB3 and Komet are cool imo.

Ahhhh, Top Gear time...........

IL-2: GAZ Volga - Russia's bread-and-butter, horrid build quality, built in droves.

P-51: 1969 Ford Mustang - POWER POWER POWER! Large and masculine, starts as small "personal coupe" (P-51B), receives new engine (Merlin), and goes on to become a machine to be dealt with, before becoming porky and later emasculated. Horrible handling.

B-17: Kenworth truck - Large size, impressive payload, slow and juicy target, but beware defensive drivers (gunners).

Bf-109: BMW M5 - all-round badass, excellent engineering, and driving (flying) characteristics, made better by V10 (DB-605) engine, praised by many drivers (pilots).

Fw-190: Porsche 911 - Venerable, small (later increasing in length), high performance flat-6 (BMW 801) engine, snappy and prone to rooster tails (stalls) in the hands of an inexperienced pilot.

Spitfire: Jaguar XKE - Elegant, timeless design, superb handling, huge V12 (Merlin) engine increases performance. Also produced in an unsuccessful coupe (Seafire) form.

Mosquito: Morgan Aero 90 - Minimalistic, blisteringly fast, and made of wood.

Gladiator: Mini Cooper - Incredibly manoeverable, nimble, small engine (armarment), well-suited for the subliminal driver (pilot), bare cabin (cockpit) construction. Essentially British.

Hmmm the Hurri definitely lacks coolness. She is a good aeroplane, but too much on a quiet girl to be cool. She has to go to the uncool side of the wall I'm afraid.

The IL2s are all too much of a Volvo to be cool. But The single seater is a beefed-up, straight-to-the point, no-nonsense, no-looking-back enfant terrible. It has to be cool. Not up to the zub-sero coolness of the Mig-3 but cool nonetheless.

The I-185 has to be cool. Mean, fast and small. An I-16 on steroids. If anything its reliable mechanics make it loose a bit of character, but still cool.

The Spit. It's the Jag of the Sky, no doubt, but I have to agree with Nexus: Cool but borderline. You just see too many of them on Sundays.

The La-7 is absolutelly uncool!!! It has to be the perfect Russian Taxi. Never breaks down, always easy to handle. On the other side the early La-5 is the essence of coolnes. Brute force still to be tammed.

I have to agree on the Mig 3-ud, it has the definite cool-factor, speed and the looks to go with it.

Another is F4U-1D Corsair, there's same sleekness and attitude as in the early mid-50's Corvettes. Put the shades on and start cruising, then just park it on your boat and get your coctail ready - double coolness http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ho-229 must be the essence off cool. It even looks like a very cool pair of shades (espeshially og you get a black skin for it). My only problem with it it that it handles too well and has too good guns.

An unarmed Goha would perhaps be the ultimate, too fast for anything, totally usless anyway.

One Comment- saw a couple of thoughts regarding the "cool" plane for "Dirty Harry"

Sorry- it has to be the IL-2 3M
"Uh huh- I know what your thinking- did he fire 39 shots or 40? Well, considering that this is the 37 MM, the most powerful cannon known to pilots, and can take your wing clean off- you have to ask yourself "Do I feel lucky"

Well, Do ya, punk?

No no no, neither the 109 nor the 190 can be cool. The 109 is a flying BMW, drug dealers plane and the drivers think they own the road, err sorry, the sky. The 190 is a flying Porsche which has similar coolness problems as BMWs and the 190 is also too cowardly to be cool. It shoots people from behind and then runs away.

The I16 is cool cus it's small and cute. P38L is cool I think because when I first saw it in its shiny silver glory I thought "that's cool." The Mustang definately isn't cool because this car is not cool and its uncoolness spreads to anything that has the same name:
http://trailsendrvandautosales.com/lc/bus/1310/images/98%20ford%20mustang.JPG

Coolness has nothing to do with how good a plane or car is. Looks have something to do with it but looking good cannot make something cool, and some things that don't look good are cool. Some brilliant planes and cars are uncool (Ferraris, BMWs, Porsches) and some rubbish cars and planes are cool (like the 2CV) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif.

Thinking about cars and planes it's not advisable to just put all the models from one builder to one big group.
There are cool Ferraris (daytona spyder & lot of older models), BMW's (my father owned a small 320 V6 in the 80's, it was totally cool little car), porsches (most 911s: cool, 944: what a flop).
Like planes: one seater IL-2 is cool, two seaters are cool only if nobody else is driving them. Earlier mustangs are cool (planes and cars). 109e is cool, 109G6 not so cool.

One plane which I like a lot, and thus I guess it becomes cool in my eyes, is B-239 Brewster. It's like VW Kubbelwagen: very nimble, good visibility, a little bit dated, but has some small machine character against all the big boys.

For me it has to be the Fw189 - looks almost spaceage in a retro sort of way, always makes people who don't know them look twice, plus how cool would you have to be to fly around the battlefield in my dad's greenhouse with laser firing pea shooters for defence.

If we could fly this in the game all the cockpit off guys could have a blast without being rendered half blind too...

I would probably fly it without other aircraft in the sky just to be able to look straight down and behind and still see the sunset reflected off perfect water.

Oh - yeah - in real life - Beaufighter! Guess I just dig slightly offbeat looking planes...

Mind you, that funky Blohm und Voss that airfix used to make would be cool as well.

On the contrary, the builder of the car is very important in how cool it is. Also the 911 is the very car that makes Porsche uncool.

The Fw 190 without a doubt, anyone saying otherwise is only fooling themselves.

Just look at this F-9 with the "fat" prop! Grrr!

http://fw190.hobbyvista.com/440382-4.jpg

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."

I would also nominate the P-47. Not so good looking and maybe not very popular but, can do a huge amount of damage, dives to extreme speeds and still flies with huge amounts of damage.

And of course the Gloster Gladiator (and it's varients) looks like an old and inocent aircraft. Like an old warrior. Once the king of the battlefield but, now old and retired. But, in an emergency situation, it can hold itself. He remembers his old profession and qualities. And he is still able to defeat the newer generation with it, when used in the appropriate way.

When I am flying online (FR server + speedbar) I take any Il-2 that is available, load it up with all the goodies (especially the fire bombs are cool) then take off in the OPPOSITE direction and with some good naviagtion (with map, without icons!) I approach the enemy base, low and from behind and bomb it into oblivion. You know how everyone just flies straight from base to base... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif This works perfect, every time when there are no map icons or dog tags enabled.

Definatly the 190's, especially the Dora. They're badass as hell, sleek lines, and yes, are pure sex. They're hard to fly too, so only a true pimp at the stick can handle her the way she likes it. It's simply got coolness written all over it. If coolness could be used to construct planes, coolness would be the reason for her high wing load.

Oh yeah, the Emil is cool too. As said, if looks could kill, it'd not only be an ace, it'd be an experten http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The 262 is cool too. It could be argued that the reason Germany failed to stop the daylight bombings of the allies is because the 262's were too little, too late. This is simply due to a shortage of coolness in a wartime Germany. If coolness supplies had been up, B17's would have been owned.

Interesting discussion! I'll add my 2 cents:

1) All Italian planes are cool. G50, MC-202, Cr42... I mean, c'mon! What plane out there really exibits the coolness of the Folgore? It looks cool, mean, fast and nasty all at the same time! I'd give someone else's right arm to get that play flyable in the game.

2) The Stuka.

3) And I DEFINITELY think the Hurricane deserves to be placed in the pantheon of cool. Its cool in the same way the first car you owned in high school is cool - its a run down beater, pretty much everything on the street is better than it, nobody else would want to be seen dead in it, but it got the job done. Ah, the memories.

Hurricane MkI - Make yourself a cup of tea & be arrogant.

P-38 - Any South American drug lord should have one for trafficking the borders.

Zero - it's Japanese & therefore cool. Simply totally bushido from spinner to tail.

S!

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gifHave to agree with the Mig being one of the COOL Planes... but it's a toss up with the Hurricane!
And the Bi-Planes have the Way Cool Factor... the best for On-Line Action.

Any plane which fly above 6000 meters is a very cooled airplane. In fact it's more than cooled. It's freezing.

What? Not one mention of the Fiat G.55?

I kinda like that retro '30s scifi look, so MY choices are the P-38, Fiat G.55, and the Hawker Hurricane. All of 'em look like something from an old comic book.

Just look at this F-9 with the "fat" prop! Grrr!

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."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

U is wrong, notice the guy on the wing, is he cool? no he isnt, looks like a nice chap :P.

the 190F8 and a456, D models are cooler than the others, but its not that cool really.
stick a torpedeo on and itll be cool http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I'll have to second all votes for the I-16.

It's such a cute, harmless looking little aircraft... But if you underestimate it, it'll rip off your arm and beat you to death with it. And never stop smiling.

I-16's are so cool that they don't even have to fly to the target. The have OTHER aircraft (the also-cool TB3) take care of that for them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

All you have to do as a pilot is feel the breeze in your hair and concentrate on looking badass with your tinted flight goggles on, like James Dean with a 900 hp engine. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Sorry for the propaganda, but I gotta promote my sweet baby whenever I can. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
