I'm a quiet guy. Whereas my distant cousins are greatly loved by some and greatly hated by others, no one really thinks about me. They should, though.

I'm a tough guy--you can punch me and punch me and punch me and I won't fall out of the sky.

But don't think I'm sluggish just because I'm strong. I'm very fast and surprisingly agile. Just remember that I bleed a log of energy and keep the maneuvers short and decisive, and I'm fantastic.

My brother has all the punching power of George Foreman. Me, I'm not so strong, but I'm as accurate as an Olympic archer.

Who am I?

Nope! I'm playable in this game.

Is there a "distant cousin" of the Stuka that is one of the most widely loved-and-hated planes in FB? That's one of the more important hints.

None of the above, silly.

And no, I'm not a Hurricane. I'm much tougher and more durable than the Hurricane.

YAY!!! We have a winner!

The 1943 LaGG-3 is tough as nails, fast, and agile, but only has one 12.7mm and one 20mm. The LaGG-3 IT (the brother) has that giant cannon, but its aim bounces around when it fires. The La-5/7 (the distant cousin) is the one who draws all the press, while the LaGG-3 plays the wallflower.

But the LaGG-3 really deserves more praise than it gets.

Yeah, maybe that was TOO MUCH of a hint. I basically said I was VVS.

I was thinking Stuka with its distant cousin being a ME-109.

And the Hurricane with its cousin being the Spitfire.

That was fun. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Come to think of it, the Ta-152 fits those hints pretty well too. But that wasn't what I was thinking of.

Yes, that was very fun...do another...

I was going to guess the LaGG-3, but everyone beat me too it. The main reason (I'm not too good with associations) was that I really like the first LaGG-3...second favorite plane.

Okay, I'll think of another. This time around I won't be as forthcoming with additional hints.
