Between the P-47-27 1944 and the FW190-D9 1944, wich one can sustain more damage.

Why i am asking is because i have created a COOP. It's the Berlin map.

Planes involved:

4 captured He's

8 FW190-D9/44

6 P-47-27/44

Every time so far that i have ran the COOP; about 5 times. I noticed that the FW190-D9 can take an abnormal amount of damage.

One example:

At a distance of 190m on the FW's six I fired for 4 strait seconds, parts of his plane flying every where and finaly it's wing blew off.

Is that normal?


second example:

This time i am being fired on by an FW and im in a P-47. I heard a few shots and that was it. My plane was a puff of smoke.

Any way i was wondering if this is normal. Or if there is an ishui with the FWD9 MD and the P-47 MD.


Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer these questions.

The Browning 12.7mm's do very little damage in FB. They are suffeciant for killing Bf 109's, but Fw 190's are almost immune to them. Fortunatly for the P-47's, they are nearly invulnerable to the D9's 20mm's as well /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif . I have a few normandy missions and I generally use 2x P-47's per Fw 190A8. This ensures the P-47's stand a good chance of success and it is more realistic that way as the axis was almost always outnumbered in battles late in the war. You also need to keep in mind that it is very easy for a fast plane like the Fw 190D9 to flat out ignore the escorting P-47's and just attack the bombers. What I suggest is you do something on the order of 4x Fw-190D9's vs 8x P-47D-27's and 8x "American He-111's." This should ensure a somewhat equal chance of success on both sides.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>

I disagree about the MG131s doing little damage, I test flew a coop mission last night and shot down 7 p47s in the 190D9
first 5 were all guns, last 2 were MGs only, realistic gunnery and everything else real except no cockpit and icons...

some of the earlier kills with both guns I broke the p47s in half using cannons, I shoot normallly at .10 or less for range btw
