The Fw 190D-9, although it's not half as fun to fly as it used to be, it feels too arcadish now. But I wont give up on it! The Bf 109's are fun to fly aswell.

@ Robban: Kinda funny: the sowjets took over some captured Doras 'cause they were astonished about her performance...
Germany took over the NVA-Fulcrums cause they were astonished by it's performance, too /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

When once you have tasted flight,
you will always walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward;
to where you have been
and to where you always want to return.

I don't really have ONE favourite but if I HAVE to choose one I'll say Hurricane Mk1.

Ask me again in a month and I might say something different. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"Of all my accomplishments I may have achieved during the war, I am proudest of the fact that I never lost a wingman. It was my view that no kill was worth the life of a wingman. . . . Pilots in my unit who lost wingmen on this basis were prohibited from leading a [section]. They were made to fly as wingman, instead."

Tough one, they all have their advantages..

But I go for the Bf109-series, easy to fly (just don't come down too hard), got firepower (shoot in bursts up close), got speed (as long as you fly straight), vulnerable (guess you'll just have to stay out of the streaming yellow thingies/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ) and finally, in a strange ackward way, it's not that ugly.

Don't have one favorite. It depends on what year it is. I'm hoping I can say the P-51 after we get it.

P39 Q1 i like the armament, it can out turn most, the cockpit is nice..

It's not very fast and bleeds E.. but it can reach dive speeds in excess of 800 before it starts to come apart.

-Any FW-190.
-Me-262

We'll see when the Spitfire and Typhoon/Tempest arrive. After that nothing else matters. But to be honest I find myself fying the P-40E most of the time when messing around lately.

Always been a fan of the La5's and Yak 3's.
Trying to branch out a bit since I got back into FB and am currently really enjoying taking the P47-D27 through the dynamic campaign.

Problem is, ther are SO many to try and SO little time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I-153. Its the last plane I thought I would like, but its so well-balanced that other planes just feel too mushy.

In online flight (my favorite modus operandi lately), I love the He-111. H2 for airfield strikes, H6 for naval and factory strikes. Just fly those badboys like they were F-111's, low and fast, and good to go!

Anyways, I suck at air-air, so it's nice to have a few AI gunners watching my '6 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have been forcing myself to fly 109s and 190s lately, so I can get a feel for the performance of the various models. Must say, I prefer the 190A9 to the 109K4, but that is hardly an educated opinion.
