just for fun, if u could swap any one characteristic on a plane for that of another, what would it be. Stick to prop planes though.

you can make some uber planeshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

some of my top choices,

Mustang elevator repsonse on a k4

mk 108 nose cannon on i53 (i would think twice about going anywhere near that!)

but my absolute fav would be mustang III with 3b20 cannons. That would be king of everything imho. I'd settle for 1 mg151 though.

what other suggestions do you think would be good/fun?

cheers fruitbat

Ooh, ooh, pick me! Pick me!!

- I'd love to put 4 Hispanos on the Mustang III.

- I'd love to put 109 slats on my Mk. VIII CW. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

- The I-153 already has (2) MK108s, no? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

- I'd love to have Ki-84-1c 30mms in any of my Spitfire wings. Vs, IXs, VIIIs....all of them.

I would put cannons on the p-47's
I would put superchargers on engines in the p-40's

I would take the Bf 109Z out. I would put the Westland Whirlwind in.

Remove all guns from US planes so there would be no complains anymore about them... :P

The ammo load of a 109 in a yak. I'd love to have thirty seconds instead of the nine in a 9T.

All Brewsters: correct their top speeds. At present they are undermodelled as far as top speed is concerned.
F2A-2: get rid of that hideous and useless telescopic gunsight and fit a decent reflector sight!

I was thinking this yesterday as I was flying an A9. The FW we have is very one-dimensional. Probably just my FW inexperience, but it seems that only a fool would try to turn a FW against a Spit, La or even the Spit109fires we have nowadays. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

It felt extremely heavy and all I could do was B and Z and stay fast. But then again, from what I've read around here, that's the way to fly them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Did they really have such poor elevator response?

I just want a chrome P-40 with a thrust to weight ratio exceeding unity so I can hang it on its prop wherever I like. Throw in a massive gunsight/hood ornament and a leather interior as well. A smoke system couldn't hurt either. I suppose that is more than one thing, but I would settle for just the chrome.

I think the elevator response is great, other factors make it a poor turner. In game u have to fly it fast, and keep altitude to win or survive, but in real life it seems this wasnt the case.

Mustang's laminar wings on a 190 for some serious furballin'! More lift for least drag penalty.

Mine would be to bolt the avenger gattling gun from the A10 onto an IL2 sturmovik (maybe it could be a detachable pod which could be dropped if the pilot wanted to get away quickly). Now that would be fun, especialy as an Air To Air weapon! It would probrably make a mess of anything!
