I really love this plane ever since i read the book Flying Tigers. Take a look at these photos of P-40s.Send some screenshots or storys of your P-40 experiences such as kills bad landings and crazy stunts.

From what I understand the P-40 was extremely mediocre in nearly all respects when it was first introduced. I do not know how this translates to in game performance and I haven't flown it much myself because, well, my aim sucks and I need cannon on my red planes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The P-40 is awesome.

Favorite ride in the game. I've flown it enough to fly comfortably with it.

I love this plane to bits. Even when it is in bits, I still love it.

You've gotta love the P-40. To do otherwise is heresy and/or idiocy. One of my fave planes of all time! (check the sig)

P40 is one of my favourite planes in the game - within my top 4 at least.

Any plane is extremely mediocre in the hands of a **** pilot. (Me, for example http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif)

In the hands of an ace, any plane can be extremely... Unmediocre.

My favourite plane now... But a close second is a Spit MKVIII.

I love the Kittyhawk.

Stories with the P-40?

Hmm. Well once I was on a server and had done my best at trying to shoot down blue planes but alas, no matter what uber spit or yak I took off in I could never shoot a dang thing down.

Then I saw that the P-40 was available in the server and said "what the heck" and took off in it just for giggles. Turns out that I shot down 4 planes...3 109s and a 190D. Weird huh?

The P-40 is a nice honest aircraft to fly in the sim, and a good looking plane, to boot. It's not the best at anything but it's a fun plane to fly.


Here's a bad landing...but I did walk away:

Here's a stunt, but I've seen this done with the plane inverted. I can't manage it:

here's one of my favorite P-40 skins:

I love P-40E cocpit, because its so close in gunsight view to real P-51B/C...

The question should be, who doesn't like the P-40? The plane is shrouded in glory and its history romanticized. It's like the Davy Crockett of airplanes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
