I was going to say that naturally 190D, but PBNA found the ultimate answer.

Any plane that suits your flying style and ability.

Obviously different planes will suit various peoples preferences, and level of experience.

I'd say the FW190A9 is by far the most lethal plane in the game as of v1.11. But I don't think it's a plane that anyone could just jump in and fly, it requires a fairly steady hand and patient energy management to get anything useful out of it.

The previous easy-rides of the P40 and Hurricaine are now quite poor performers in the game. They still have forgiving flight characteristics, but they've lost a lot of the engine power / energy retention they once had.

The I-16 gets the classic "noob plane" panning from some on the forums here, but I wouldn't agree. There's very little pilot protection, making suffering a pilot kill quite likely. As soon as an actual newbie goes to nose-down the engine is going to cut out and that's not good news for them at all. It's also much more lightly armored now, making any hits scored on it potentially crippling or lethal.

To be honest as far as power, turn rate, armament and the rest go, I'd have to say the 109-E and Il-2 series 1 are now two of the better rides in the game, especially for new players. Both have very predictable flight handling, decent armament punch, and either decent or very good armor as in the case of the Il-2.

But personally I'd have to say the hands down "best" plane in the game is the P-39N1. Not necessarily the best at any one thing other than perhaps armament, but in overall armor, armament, engine power and flight handling it's able to take just about anything down. It's what I build most of my large FMB missions around, since I'm able to throw any type of aircraft into the mix against it. It also carries enough ammo load in the .30s and the 37mm to survive on longer missions.

The P-47D10 is now a very good ride in 1.11 as well, or I find it to be so. Good for learning energy management on - no unexpected snap rolls like in the FW190, and decent all-rounder characteristics like the P-39.

Best fighters :

At low level Allies : La-7 Axis : Fw-190A-9

At medium level Allies : La-7 Axis : Bf-109K-4

At high level Allie : maybe P-47D-10 Axis : Bf-109K-4


But, at high level, the real winner for the Allies will be the P-51D when it becomes flyable.
