While i was on a server, ripping off wings, it dawned on me, that, after hte patch, might my Beloved Anton become the next "noob" plane? I say this because, it's high speed elevator will be fixed, the 20mm cannon has been fixed, as well as the mk108, and with all that firepower.. i dunno, what are your thoughts?

I'm hoping it will. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

But seriously, the 190 still requires team tactics IMHO when flying against good opposition. It's not a good 1 vs. 1 plane. If modelled properly, the poor turn rate, poor visibility, and average climb rate eliminate it from potentially becoming a noob plane IMHO. However when used as a team it will be very tough to beat. You could apply the same to the P-47 and the P-51 when it arrives as well. The 190, 47, and 51 takes patience, communication, and intelligence to be effective. I would love to join a 190 squad to utilize team tactics after the patch is released.

I think after the patch the La-5/7, the 109's (except maybe in '43), and certain Yaks like the 1B in '42 and 9U in '44 will be the easiest to fight and win in as they do everything well (turn, speed, handling). The Yak-9U should be better than the Yak-3 IMO with its significant speed advantage. Just my thoughts.

Also i suppose the "Poor visability" of the cockpit will lessen this, though i dont notice it.
