What's your favorite dogfight match up through 1939 (and which plane are you in)?
Bonus question: Which (<1939) plane do you like least?

I can't seem to find an Axis plane I like. Any recommendations?

The Civil war where both sides had I-153's, I-16's and TB3's was one of the best maps I've ever flown pre-1940.

But straight-up matchups pre-1940? I-16 type 18 and the Brewster.

Hurricane Mark I. Lovely fighter...not very fast even against its contemporaries but not bad.

Yep, I find Hurricane MkI vs Fiat G50 one of most interesting matchups of the sim.

I've stumbled onto two matches I'm keen to master:
B239 v. A6M2(AI)
bf109E-4 v. I-16/24(AI)

The I-16 is an annoying little bumblebee, isn't it? I finally flew into the back of one in sheer frustration after 20 minutes of nipping at it. What does it take to bag one of these? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I'll take either plane in these matchup.

B-239 vs I-16

Bf-109E4 vs Hurricane MkI or MkII

Bg-109E4 vs Hawk 75 (Hawk 75 is sadly AI only...)

Cr42 Vs J8A

Yak1 or I-16 vs Gr50

I love these match-ups.

Ki43 vs Tomahawk for 1940-41 is fun too.

Tomahawk Mk.IIb v 109E (fly either or)

109G6AS v Mustang MkIII (fly either or)

109g2 vs anything (fly g2)

Early war P.11 v P.11 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif alwayes fun

BF109E although I think we only have a 1940 version. This is probably the best all round plane available in 1939/1940

B239 is good if the opposition is Russian although the 20mm armed I16s and I153s are very dangerous.

The pII vs Stuka map on Ukdedicated is amazing fun (these are the only 2 planes on the map) The pII with its 12.5kg bombs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Amazingly the pII's often win if they make life hard for the Stukas over the ground targets and there are some good ground pounders on their side. (they only have cars and artillery as their ground targets which can be destroyed with their tiny guns)

Well the setting is 1941 but the planeset is 1936 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

In May 1941, British forces were fighting to keep Iraq in Allied hands -- a struggle that belatedly involved German and Italian aircraft as well. During clashes between RAF/Fighter Flight Habbaniya Air Striking Force and Royal Iraqi Air Force 1941, the first dogfights (and only?) between Gladiators vs. Gladiators took place.

ergo: Gladiator vs Gladiator


Also, Winterwar of -39/40 with Chaikas and J8a's


Great joy to fight 109 Emils with the lovely P11c
