You should try them all. Play different campaigns with different planes. Some are "better" than others for specific tasks (bombing, dogfighting, anti-tank, etc).

Before the patch I would have told you - start with a YAK or LA5FN but now I am trying to find a plane I like !

I flew that Brewster thang last night in a DF server. Nice visibility in cockpit and handled ok, speed was ok too. Took off nice on the grass. Took a beating well enough
Not the pride of the German fleet but it was fun.
Try the La7, its unreal in the modeling, flies well and has big guns.
Yaks are always like flies so they must be easy enough to fly.
Or....grab an IL2 field mod with rockets...thats fun

If you like the P-39, then fly it. It's a very good plane.

the only problem with the p 39 is that the cannon isnt very fast although the machine guns are really good

Yes it is and the men who pilot them are from a special breed of man. These warriors have been sent forth to dispel evil and smite the impurity of the Earth. They are like paladins and should be worshiped yet will be too humble to accept worshipers. They are the last of the chivalric knights!

Nope, I am not biased one iota.

It doesn't need to be fast when you only need to hit once.

Trent,

Don't spray the cannon. Get close. Under 150m, and just fire it one shot at a time. You'll only need one hit to down any plane. Even bombers. Your ammo will last forever like this. You can also take out planes easily with just the mgs in the patch.

Look at it as having the opportunity to kill 30 planes between landings.

<center>A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>

Stick with what 'you' like. There are all sorts of guys who are good with less popular planes. That's the beauty of this game, especially now, you can accel with most any plane you spend lots of time in, and it sure helps if you like it yourself.

You'r right, He should learn how o fly only the planes(s) that only HE find suitable, and fly those until he feels satisfied with the results. In theory, a Mig3 stands no chance against 109G, But very oten the opposite happens..

Fly the sturmovik. When you get decent at ground attack, go for the Lagg-3, 1941.

I personally prefer the P-39N1.

If you have become fond of the p-39 then fly that. And fly it a lot. Become familiar with it and learn its limits. Its fun to fly other planes but there should be one that you know very well. Learn the tactics that work for the P-39. All the planes have advantages as well as disadvantages. For example the 190 series planes will not turn very well. So you have to B&Z your opponent. The P-39 will turn better. Point is learn what works for that plane and also know enough about your opponents plane so you have some idea of what to expect from them. And if the fight is going where you dont want it to go, break off and fight on your planes terms. Dont get suckered into a fight you dont want. Thats the hard part. Have fun.

...and once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,
for there you have been and there you long to return.

If I was you I would pick a bf109 g2. It's not bad in anything. It can dive faster, turn better and climb better then the p39!

You can take bombs and gun pods also which makes it a good ground attacker & bomber intercepter.
