Many planes are missing but after this I'll add some more to the first 2 planes of this vote ;-).

P47-D10 is much improved for dogfighting over the D27 and I enjoy flying this bird well. FW's in particular make for a fun matchup. I16 is also a fun little bird to fly.

I would vote for one of those aircraft but there is a problem. I dont use any of them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

The best fighter is the P39 (IMHO) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yep - as Linux said - P47D-10, preferably at 11,000 metres.

I'll pick the P-47, but I have better luck with the yak3 unless I am feeling patient. But I've always liked the more cumbersome planes for some reason.. Next pick would be the 190...

A fun fight, is the P47 vs the 190...

The plane you describe in FB is actually the P63 hiding under another name Smoke, but we'll let that slide http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


OT: That looks like a US Army beret you're wearing, but what kind of shirt/uniform is that out of curiousity?

It is in fact a pic of my younger brother (I am better looking).

He recently made Regimental Sergeant Major in the British army, physical training corp. To my knowledge he is the youngest RSM serving at the moment.

They call him the beastmaster because of the time he notoriously "beasted" a soldier who had indecently assaulted a German girl some years back when he was a Sergeant.

I am a proud bro who had to use his pic as my avatar.

And I did not know that about the P39. You learn something new everyday http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That is very cool posting your brother's photo...I've always gotten the impression from your posts that you have your shat together, it implies you have a strong and close family, hearing you speak of your brother in the manner you do confirms that.

Salute to the Jaguar family and may your brother finish his time with honor and without getting in any scrapes.

(And may I get lucky enough to avoid having that "P39" of yours on my 6, though at the lofty heights I typically fly at, I might even be safe) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Of these choices, the P47 in a dogfight because of its firepower. Favourite a/c to fly from this group -- Fw190 A(8). Improved roll rate and climb make it even better.

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

Thank you for your very kind words. My bro's and I are as close as brothers ever could be and I cannot imagine it any other way.

Dont be too worried about my P39 BTW. I have not flown online for several months and I doubt I could do more than hold my own at my current state of rustiness http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

BnZoomers are not my chosen target anyway but then again maybe that is why I am always getting butchered before I even spot where the death came from http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Think of it this way. The P-63 is commin in the add-on and it was better in every way to the P-39. Do you think Oleg will make the P-63 better then the P-39, ot use the P-39 FM on the P-63 then Nurf the P-39? Well all indications point too the former, not the latter. So the P-63 will be one Uber-Bird hay? Soon the forums will be rife with Luftwhiners complaining about the King. The King Cobra http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Just give me whatever FW190 happens to be available. Flying one against contemporary fighters makes me feel like a king. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

None of my top 5 dogfighters are in the list. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
But out of the 1's in the list, I'll take the La-7 thank you.

As I said in the original post, after we get the 2 winners from these birds, we'll add some more in another poll (you can't have more than 5 choices in a poll). So, just vote for these even if your loving bird is not included. It will be with one of the next polls.

Actually I prefer either the D-10, or the Mustang but voted for the D-27 as it is the Jug anyway.

Probably go for the Yak 3 but what is the P47 D27 doing in there. The razorbacks are much better.

Not a good list. Why not the P-51 instead of the P-47 at least?
