I started a 110 campaign recently & WOW! Whenever I fly with the VVS or Brits, etc. I love to catch a 110 cause they seem to be easy prey if I can avoid the rear sniper.

But in my campaign I fly with 2 MK 108s & 2 MG 151 20mms in addition to normal armament. One burst & Sturmoviks go down! Finally! Laggs & Yaks disintegrate if tagged. I find I have one or 2 chances against the nimble fighters before I am in trouble, but with the heavy nose guns that is enough. It turns pretty well but the roll rate is atrocious, just like RL!

I am having great success in BNZ engagements & actually do OK dogfighting with the 110 if I don't bleed off all my speed. I love to catch Soviet bombers alone with this bad boy!

Any other 110 converts? Long live the Zerstorer!

Yes, I've always liked to fly the Bf-110. It can carry some serious firepower, as you've noticed. And, it's got some defensive armament in case those pesky fighters get behind you...of course, I've noticed that MY gunner isn't as good as the AIs gunner...maybe just my SHODDY tactics when attacking bad guys!

Anyway, I like flying it, and was overjoyed when I found that it would be flyable. It has its weaknesses, but she's a decent ship. Here's to trying the 210 someday.

It was fun, till the whiners had it nerfed last patch. An anti-tank gun without anti-tank rounds is about as much fun as taking a sand shower. Nerfed.

I like it too. Challenging ride indeed.

Its the most difficult axis plane to fly online, especially as a fighter, even the better fighterjocks have really big problems with it and leave it alone, perhaps mainly because there is a risk of getting hit.
I always try to salute bf110 drivers online because they are so few.

Yea i think after patches we at least have Bf110 very good modelled. At these moment i think that 110 is one of the best modelled plane(FM,DM, visual model) in FB/AEP.

ooh yes i love the 110 its my favorite ride after the 190. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif
its not that bad as a fighter,you just dont BnZ in it unlike the other axis fighters dont try to fly it as a 190 or 109
i normaly stay LOW and keep the speed up (mostly flying just underneath the cloud deck for a quick escape if the clouds are present)

what i always like to do is to go on Il2 Hunt with the BK3.7+2xmk108 armament wich ensures a one burst one kill http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
if there are no il2s around ill go on fighter hunt with the same loadout
i only got one rule wich is to avoid the lone enemy fighters (except when i can crawl at his six when hes climbing)
what i like to do is to come in fast at the usual Furball at lower alts and pick out the unaware target fixated bandit and get a burst in ,wich is normaly enough to vaporise any fighter and after that just extend from the furball (dont zoom up because going vertical means the reargunner not being in the best position ,besides there is always an enemy higher than you so what gives http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
there is another thing wich gives you an advantage when fighting in the 110 ,the bandits
(mostly spits yaks and La's) are overconfedent when they meet a 110 and think your are scrapmetal allready so you can get him off guard with agressive flying.

the way i use it is for me very succesfull i can get more kills in a 110 this way then in a 190 my best online sortie was 7 kills all Yak-1B on greatergreen.

Another plus for the '110 is the cockpit! Besides the Glad, this must be the best cockpit and gunnerstation in this flightsim!
I've flown the '110 offline against bombers lately, and that's pure joy. Going against fighters I'm less sucsessful at. It has a pretty decent turnrate, it's the horrible rollrate that makes it a poor dogfighter.
The two engines makes it much more reliable than the single-engine fighters, so it's a shame returning to base with one engine out gives you the same score as if you had to bail.. maybe I should try to give the 110 a trip in the virtual air tonight!

Is the 110 the best bomber destroyer in FB? Someone said the P38 was a good antibomber plane, but it seems to me that the latters guns are a far cry from the 110's firepower.

in my opinion the best bomber kill by far is the fw190A8 .. with the mk108 "in wing" cannons, not the pods (the pods hit harder but limit your ability to dodge incoming shots)

the 190a8 gives you the best combo of massive firepower, an almost tank like resistant to damage from the bomber gunners and the nimbleness to duck and weave to dodge incoming gunfire

I can regularly take out 4 "ace" pe8's or B17's in QMB with the A8, i cannot, personally, do that reliably with any other aircraft in the game

It ain't hard to take out 4 bombers with anything, hell I've done in 4 B-17's with an I-16 and 4 HE-111's with a Hurricane Mk. IIb (the one with the .303's).

Ever tried taking on 16 TB-3's in an Me-262 1a/U4? I call that fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Me too likes the BF110 very much .. but also the IL2 and even the SuKa http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Asked over at the MB-board already, but maybe you can help me: where did you find a BF110-campaign?

TIA - W75

If you have AEP just select Germany as your campaign choice and then ahhh sorta, you know read.

Thank you http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was just looking for a different/newer one ... so many great self-made campaigns out there, hoped to find one for the BF110 too .. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I fly the 110 almost religiously online, except for the occasional Stuka or 190.

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than watching Spitfires and La-7's try to go head on with my slow, vulnerable-looking 110 with an MG151 in the front! Turning their 12 o' clock into swiss cheese and finishing them off with defensive fire if need be is a very addictive experience. Bombers are similarly fun, with a lil' Mk 108 therapy to the wings and rudder.

I also love the 110's durability, although I don't really like trying to return to base with one engine. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

I wish we had the 110C-4 so that we could have proper BoB battles with the 110. Call me crazy, but I like the MG FF better than the 151/20 in the game. =|

I feel bad when I use the 2x 108 + 4x 151/20, it is like overkill. I prefer peppering the target and scaring them with the MG17, hence the fact I want the C-4.

Agreed, its art work alright. Check it out and then switch over to say...the P-47 and admire how well the kids stayed in the lines with their crayons. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

One can hope for PF all the pits will be Gladiator/110 quality.

Actually I find it extremely funny. I like being able to land an heavily damaged plane and the 110 is quite forgiving, even with just one engine running. I find it really immersive http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
