I'm new here. The Spitfire is very good and it's easy to shoot down other aircraft.

Why is this possible?

I have read history books and they say that the Spitfire was almost as good as the Mustang.

But other books say that the Spitfire was better than the Mustang. 76% of books say that the Spifire was superior to the Me 109.

Strangely, 83% of books say that the Spitfire was better than the Fw-190.

27% of books state that the He-111 was better than the Blenheim.

Blenheim is in Germany. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Ctrl E turns on the targeting computer so you can be 1337 like me.

The Spitfire is good only because the VVS improved it. We have the Soviet version, not the inferior RAF version.

Similar explanation for P-47's performance. The Soviet Navy didn't like it very much so they didn't bother fixing the US's flawed design. The ingame Thunderbolt represents the 200 documented versions sent to Russia and thoroughly verified by VVS reports, not the 13,000 fantasy planes that were hyped by the US and its lackey allies.

Better at what?
Spits were defiantely better turners than Mustangs, but the Mustang was faster so could control the fight better.
It all comes down to what they mean by 'better'.

Blenheim was a battle in Germany which was a major British victory leading to a lot of Blenheim's in the UK (Duke of Blenheim, Blenheim house etc...)

Clearly a case of 'sayberfetishism'.

If Oleg does not post something on BOB or at least bring a new patch around so that we have something to talk about, we are all going to go bananas...

The Spitfire was designed to be an interceptor. The Mustang was a long range escort fighter.

In a Dogfight the Mustang can't live with the Spitfire, thats because of the high wingloading and the heavy weight of the plane.

This dosen't mean the Spitfire is an overall better fighter.
But to shoot down other aicrafts. Spitfire is better!

And the Mustang is ot faster than the Spitfire. Mark XIV about the same speed as the P51D.
And the Spitfire is WAY more powerfull.
