Does anybody have a plane they seem to do best in?
Mine is the B-239, is not my favourite but I rake up heaps of kills in it, I always seem to do best in it: PKing 109s in clouds, flamers from .50 away etc.

Anybody else?

I have fun in Bf109s, but I must admit that flying Spits or P51s I do more kills... since mine is an Axis group I fly BF the 95% of times.

Ah, now I can't fly the latest model of 109 (from G10) cause the mk108 but above all the high speed handling (yesterday I tried the P40 and diving I reached 600km/h but the plane seems working normally).

If I must fly late plane I take Dora or G6AS.

Best for what?

Pe-8 is a killer because of that 5 ton bomb. You don't even need to hit the target.

Best aircombat plane for me on a dogfight server from 42-44 is the Fw-190A.

My favorite planes are the Yak-1b and P-40 series, but I seem to be able to do my best work in 109G's. It seem's I'm a closet-109er.

P-51 I think - in terms of fun - not the plane I'd score many kills in. I like the hit & run sort of game & I can't dogfight & drink coffee at the same time - in fact I can't dogfight at all... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif The D9 is also nice if I fly for the blues.

It may change though when I get the gold pack,

Sure. Here's a couple of shots of me messing around in the QMB. I was attacking a couple of flights of Pe-8's in my little Me-163 rocket interceptor. This sequence represents my first attack run. I opened up with the Mk.108s, scoring several hits to the wing-roots. Apparently, some shrapnel hit the bomb-bay.

Fuel tank on fire, indeed. If you look to the right, you can see another Pe-8 being dismantled by the shockwave. The whole formation (finger four) perished in that blast.

That chain of wreckage in the fireball there is my aircraft, btw. Everything was torn off before it eventually exploded on the other side of the blast.

I do best, and feel more comfortable flying in any of the La series. But only in air to air, fighter to fighter situations. The Fw190A would be second (even though I hate the cockpit http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif ).

109's are fun to fly in, and are close up to the Fw190, but again it all depends on the situation.

03-26-2006, 01:29 PM
Well, if you just see the manouverabilty, the 109 E7/Z is the best, but she has weak weapons. In this point, I think the 190 A-6 is the best, if you are familiar with her, she is a killer. Under the bombers, I think the Ju- 88 is the best. My opinion.

Every plane has their own advantages, there's no "Super- Plane" wich can beat all of them....

FW190D9 is the best fighter, closely followed by the Spit IX 25lbs. P38L late is the best all rounder followed by the Corsair. IMHO.

ImpStarDuece
03-26-2006, 02:20 PM
Has to be the Ki-43.

Weak firepower and a tissue paper airframe, but it can turn on a dime, rolls like a dream, climbs like a monkey on speed and is generally more nimble than a pack of ferrets covered in baby oil.

The plane/s i rack up kills in would be the 109's and FW190's. Sometimes i do just as well in Spitfires but hispanos hate me. Call me a noob i dont care. Us Brits love to fly the spits.

I also was really enjoying the Tempest, its a challenge to get a kill in and very rewarding when you do (ego wise). The double hispanos are really forgiving on a hispano noob like me. I do well in Hurricanes if were talkin **** planes, easily gettin flamers and smashin wings with them, but i dont enjoy flying them.

I guess to round off, my best plane for kills is the FW190A8/9.

For enjoyment and to feel 733t i would say Tempest.

Oh oh P11's are fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif And all other biplanes.

Hey,

ditto on the 239. Great plane http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I had a 5 kill sortie on it on spits v 109s' once. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif One trick is to be fighting folks that are not used to fighting against them, the next trick, is *always* start at and alt and E advantage. With those you can really rule the sky. 8^) you can also own up pretty much any p39 or p40m that you come across. One of my favoites is to hang out up high, and wait for a 109 to get into a loseing turn fight, then dive in flame the other guy and clim out before anyone has had a chance to think about what happened. Against the hurricane also, you can still roll a bit faster, and I think the 239 handles much more gracefully at lower speeds, so I sucker them into a very low stall fight and watch them go in, I might not get credit for the kill from the server, but bot pilots know what happened. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

if you like the 239 you might like y latest video 8^)

http://www.savefile.com/files/6023302

in the end my top 3 are


1. brewster
2. 109g2
3. wildcat

Though this weekend I had a blast in the p51.

No offence mate, but what have you been smoking? There is NO WAY any Hurri will outturn a Brewster. Compared to the Brewster, the Hurri is a lump of lead- very sluggish response to control input. The only adavantages the Hurri has are firepower and speed, and the latter in part only because all three Brewster variants are seriously undermodelled as far as speed is concerned. Otherwise, it's Brewster all the way- better all-round vision, faster response to control input, tighter turning circle.
For pure turning and climbing, it's hard to equal the Ki.43, but it has a popgun armament and flimsy construction.
The Brewster is a good all-round compromise even in its current undermodelled form as far as speed is concerned: very good manoeuverability, good all-round vision, half-decent gunpower.

It must be just me, but I don't like too many American planes in the game. The P38, and F4U-C is about it. I keep giving the P47, 40 and 39 a chance, but never seem to like them, and the 51 I find is only semi-decent.
