what model is best for DF in the A models

Is it the A-9. If I remember correctly the A-8 had heavier armor for attacking bombers. But I dont actually recall much at all since I havnt flown FB for about 4 months http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

so how does it work, throttle up, gear up, flaps up, point and shoot http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

the 190a9 is the best 190 without a doubt, the a4 and a5 arent bad at all they are alot slower but lighter and more agile. The a8 is very heavy and so is the F,

In reality only the Sturm variants of the A-8 were more heavily armored.

The A-9 is still your best bet but it really isn't that much different than the A-8. The A-9 got chopped in 1.21, as its climb-rate was reduced significantly and its handling became more sluggish. The A-8 handles slightly better than the A-9, but the A-9 is slightly faster. Since speed is the key I would go with the A-9 even though it is now almost the same as the A-8, which is wrong (look at Oleg's data in object viewer). This plane was whined into something it wasn't/shouldn't be, a more sluggish A-8 which is slightly faster.

As I recall, the A's were designed primarily as as air superiority fighters/interceptors, while the F's were ground attack/fighter-bombers. The F's were heavily armored and reinforced. Of the A's, I agree with Leadspitter; the A-9 offers the best mix of performance characteristics. Personally, I like the feel of the A-8 on my rig...seems to climb well, accelerates, rolls like a pinwheel, likes to land exactly where I want it. Personal preference only.

Winning isn't everything;
It's the only thing!

Make sure you take off autopitch and put on prop pitch 100%.

I like the A5 just because its slightly more manuverable. the 4 20mms pack enough punch, and i can fly mid-alt fights, and still be agile enough to surprise the TnBers enought o shake them for enough time to dive+run

Fly the A5 and A8/9 and D9 feach for a little bit, see which suits you best
