I don't have AEP yet, but I fly FB with the latest patches and add-on aircraft. Anyway, I was just fooling around on the QMB and I found this plane called the P.11. So I took her up in a mission against 12 AI german fighters(all average skill and I had 12 fighters on my side to make things even). We'll I must say I was impressed! It was a little hi-wing monoplane with fixed landing gear. A design fron the 30s. But I still got 2 Bf-109s and got home safely without much damage. I read about it in the View Objects and it stated that it was used by the Polish as a frontline fighter during their short lived resistance. It said that the by the time the Germans had taken control of Poland, 120 Bf-109s were lost compared to only 26 P.11s! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Has anyone every really flown this airplane or know anything about it?

Actually an amazing little aircraft. I was mucking around making a mission once and I had 1 P11 against 4 ace 109s. The kicker was that the p11 was unarmed (no ammo) and I had to evade these 109s forever. I caused 2 of them to collide with each other and a third to hit the ground. I was still unscathed when I ran out of fuel and, because I couldn't outrun the last guy, he did nail me. But did I give him a run for his money. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have a Romanian campaign running in this aircraft but have not flown a mission for a while. I think I have downed down about 15 planes with it, including a few bombers but mostly I-16s. I had to use most of my ammo just to down one bomber if I remember correctly. The strange thing about this plane is it's currently the hardest plane to take off in and also the hardest to land too. Being a monoplane with no flaps means to have to come in really shallow to get it slow enough to land. And the take off is tough to do without dipping a wing tip into the ground due to torque. I had to develop my own method of getting into the air and still look good doing so. The little bombs you carry under the wings will not do much to anything except to light vehicles and parked aircraft. They won't even scratch a train or a bridge. Funny thing is I get a lot of missions generated where we are asked to take out a bridge anyway. Might as well throw a couple of Black Cat firecrackers out the cockpit as far as a bridge is concerned!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif
