I have been playing IL2FB now for nearly a year since its release 1st campaign was with the Fw190 (always a good start) then a JG54 campaign in the Bf109F2 and a stuka campaign (what a great plane!!).

Just recently started flying the P40E and wow its fantastic. Its not too clever climbing or in a straight line, but in a truning fight its awesome. I have tried a few QMB fights with 4 Bf109F4's on Ace and I downed every single one.
Take the fight down to tree top level and start grinding them down. I though I would read about the P40 in Black Cross Red star and it states that any fighter trying a turning fight against a P40 is tantamount to suicide, I can see why.

I thin I prefer more machine guns to less and a cannon. Although the punch isn't as strong as the cannon, it makes up for it in the amount of ammo spat out against a target. I guess it means that if you miss with the cannon you miss. But if your not on target with machine guns that a least some of the bullets might hit the target and you can carry more ammo.

Great Plane gonna try the Lenningrad campaign in it and I downloaded some sharks teeth ruski skins for it. Can I skin the whole of my squadron in single player campaigns or only my own plane. Would look wicked if i could do the whole squadron.

The P40 has always been my favorite. Since the 1.21 patch the roll rate has improved significantly. The .50's are leathel at good range and It's really fun to fly.........S! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Do you know about my skin question, I'd love to see a whole flight of grinning P40's in the campaign when I start it.

I believe you can do that in UberDemon's UQMG, using the clone feature. If you're not familiar with it, it's an awesome mission generator.
