The P-51B seems to be very manueverable, but with less hitting power. It dives like a lead brick and the elevators are very light. It turns very well. Probably my new favorite 'Stang.

I still like the D the best. A little less shotgun effect on the .50's would make it perfect.

I like the "C" just because of the malcom hood. Other than that it is the same as the "B" AFAIK. But the P-38 is really striking my cords right now. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Love the P-51D with the K-14 gunsight. Anyone else read the read me file on how to use it? Take the time, the gunsight rocks.

I like the one that has the two big Allison engines and the killer 20mm cannon sticking out the nose- whatever that one is ;0)

I've found that the guns are less effective on line than off line...I suspect lag and more aggressive manuevering from human pilots to be at the heart...

Given that...how many will switch from D to B/C online???

Does the B/C turn better for those low level furballs?

Acceleration? Speed?

I'm dying here cause I haven't found a store in NE Arkansas that has AEP or FB Gold...help me I need a mustang fix http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think that .50 damage has been increased or it seems more effective now, 4x.50 did pretty good when I tried them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

OOHH boy I'm getting pumped now...I loved the "feel" of the D model, it just fell a little short of what I thought it would be for online gaming...but a smidge more turn and a smidge more speed (sounds like the B/C has em) and those dratted 30mm uber cannons may not get a chance to find their mark...he he

Well if I don't find a copy tomorrow, I'll have a tough choice whether to head to Memphis in search of or go fishing...probably both http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
