If you had to fly one a/c for all missions, which would it be? For me it's one I haven't even flown much, the Bf 110. It's an effective bomber daytime or night, and can give me a good chase even in late model Russian a/c. I fly mostly Russian campaigns and I love flying against them, but they still frustrate me and I keep thinking they shouldn't.

Good question. I would say Yak1. It's a great plane, can carry bombs OR rockets, and has some great guns.

That is until the P38 comes in.

Lol... funny.. yah, I probably would agree..

And I know what you mean about those 110's. I like to set them to ace level and drop a dozen or so into a mission. They are intense!

Fw-190 by far

Russian aircraft require skill to fly.
German aircraft require ten times that skill, and one hundred times the patience!

P-47. Can haul 2,000lbs of bombs, 6 rockets or tons of ammo. Also effective as a fighter, BUT only at BnZ and high alt.

Hmmm... the P-47 carries quite a load..but has anyone succesfully nailed a tank with the .50s?

Some of the Yaks, and the JaBo FW-190 might have the edge...

I love the hitting power of the P-47 with it's rockets and bombs, but the Hurricane with four 20MM can do some rather ballsy damage. It can knock down most anything in the air and can inflect a fair amount of damage on the ground.

Don't know if its the "best", but I've personally shot down and blown-up every available target in FB flying Sturmoviks, from fighters, bombers, tanks, trains, AAA, bunkers, ships, you name it I've killed it. Often scoring air and surface kills in the same sortie. Oh and try carrying a torpedo with your P47 or FW190.

Without a doubt the best overall mud mover in the game is the IL2 for sure.

If I had to pick one plane to fly an entire campaign in and I would have to do air superiority, ground attack and all that, I'd pick the 190F8 hands down.

The P47 is a good choice though, but I find it rather limited for A2A compared to the F8.

In early-war situation, you could try the Il-2. It wrecks 109E's pretty fast with that armament. It is nice for offline campaign when the AI 109E's think they can harras your group without punishment.

I would've sworn that I saw the AI 109's doubt of what to do when a few of rounds landed on them. After I shot down the two 109's, I continued on my ground-attack mission. I didn't need to jettison the bombs during the short dogfight.

For late-war...

I think the P-47.

What, no Il2 drivers out there?

Okay, I'll put a vote in for the Il2 (for a almost multi role a/c).

Plus you get that neat rear gunner/back seat driver yelling at you everytime you dare not fly perfectly straight.
I swear my kids are learning Russian from those rear gunners.

I'd say the il2 takes more damage then any other plane in the game, the cannons can destroy tanks, the fab napalm sinks destroyers in 1 hit and you can hit, 10-12 rockets it manuevers like a fighter., has the easest gunsite and the russian weapons are as effective at .50 as they are at 1.50 no leading required.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

P-47 D-22 all the way.

Great fighter. huge range. You can make the range even huger by adding droptanks.

You can put rockets or bombs on it. Or even rockets AND bombs.

and its robust enough that AAA isn't deadly.

And nothing beats it diving. My choice 100%.

About tank hunting with .5o's: I took out a several tanks with the .50's on the Brewster, the P-47's should be a problem. I will go try it to find out.

I know it´s weird, but my choose is I-153. In my hands it can sink ships, shoot down planes, destroy tanks, cars, AAA, bridges, trains, anything! Well, maybe it´s a bit slow, but I don´t mind! Salute!

Yes I have, attack from above in a slight angle and you rip those tanks to bits in one pass, medium tanks that is, the really heavy ones are a different story.

But yes, the P-47 has speed, armor, heavy weapon load of different types, range and great firepower.

The FW190 is nice, but not as flexible as the P-47 is in the multi role department.

12-29-2003, 10:04 PM
Definitely G or F series FW190, they can get in fast, destroy anything you need "blowed up" and then they can dogfight their way out if need be.

Overall the best mix of speed, range, ordinance, and dogfighting ability available.

Agree with Fw190Fan; the 190A series seems to have filled more roles successfully than other a/c, though I love the jug dearly. 190s were interceptors, sweepers, ground attack planes and bombers on both fronts. Even the famed Stuka pilot, Rudel, picked the 190 for ground attacks after he was wounded in 1944.

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

P-47 for me Just wish it could get out of a dog fight when its bounced down low. I like the Il2 second due to its rear gunner just wish he had more gun travel up, and side to side. In RL I'd of dicconnected the pee shooter and should shot it. LOL After that then I'd go with one of the 190's even though I hate the view from inside the pit. If the P-51,or the La7,Ki-84 was a durable as the 47 then I'd have a harder time picking it.

I would agree the P-47 being the best multi-role overall.
But LZ has a great point about the IL-2.
Not the greatest dogfighter, but it is a great ground pounder, and tank killer.

IL2 hands down.

We can all be glad Germany didnt have any of those in WWII!

On the axis side of the coin, the 190 A-9 is a great bird, but all the gadgets you can stick under the IL2 makes it's ground attack appeal greater than the air to air appeal of the A-9.

Exactly what does that staement have to do with your favorite multirole a/c? There's no need to troll, just state what you like and leave it at that. Please show a little courtesy, and this place will flow so much smoother. Thanks. Btw, what is your fav multirole bird?

If I had my choice of AI, it would be a late Pe-2, or Pe-3bis. Tu-2 might boast better specs, but I like the look of the Pe's.

I'll take the FW-190 A9. With that beast once in Slammin's server I bombed eight aircraft, turned around shot four more with the cannons on the ground, and in the way back I shot down three more. You can load a big bomb or some ridiculously big cannons depending on the mission. After dropping the 500kg bomb you still have one of the fastest machines in the game and four cannons with a lot of ammo.
If I have to do both, A2G and A2A this is the the way I do it.
