It isn't the first time this has been asked, but let's do it more systematically this time:

In THIS game what plane do you have more fun in?

Not what you have more kills with, not what you like in real life and not what you'd like to like http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. And PLEASE do not ruin this thread with complains or flaming. I would also appreciate if you don't comment on others' choices (unless to say something positive http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

1. Bf-109 G-14 (or sometimes G-2 and G-10) - I totally specialized on this plane, so that's what I'm best with
2. Bf-110 - Heck, it's one killing-machine; people underestimate its deadliness all the time
3. Zero (any) - Fun dogfights

But that's just what I mostly take... Of course the Me-262 is very nice to fly too.

On historically correct plane sets:

On first page there is one user that likes LA-7 for fun, and actually I like it too. Excellent ride http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
Yak-3P is also great fun mount IMO but it isn't my type of ride.

On PTO Ki-84 rules for IJA/IJN side as it is now but I believe that will probably change with the introduction of Raiden in game. Although I can easily be wrong on this one... oh well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

My usual choices in recent days:

1 point - F6F
2 points - F4U
3 points - Beaufighter

I bet no one else votes for the Beaufighter. Not glamourous, but the RAAF did excellent work with them during the war and I can see why. Very stable for ground/ship attacks, well armed, versatile, and sturdy. Actually manuevers pretty well for a 2 engined jabo, as well.

I agree. It would be quite interesting to see some poll like yours after we get Mosquito. More precisely month or two *after* it becomes available in game. Results will probably be better than those of Beaufighter/Bf-110 but... not much I reckon.

It is always like that, aircraft that does not belong among best fighters all around isn't so popular no matter which type it is.

Recently I posted quite interesting topic about IL-2 attack aircrafts but got what... 10-15 replies? Now if I have posted "P-51 isn't porked... see here for instructions" or something with similar wise content I have no doubt whatsoever that one would last 5-6 pages http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. At least.

OK I realise that this is poll about mounts that gives us fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. I have slightly overlooked that fact when I first voted but TBH that list is not far away from my 'funny list'. And because I already edited my post once I wont do that again.

Good point. I noticed that after I'd made my post. Good to see the Beau get some love. And you're right, the rear gunner doesn't seem to do much at all... pity.

Another good point. Though I think the Mossie will get a little bit more attention than that, it seems to be pretty high on many lists of planes we wish we had. I'm curious to see the reaction to the flyable Tempest when we get it... in two weeks time.

2. BF109G2 Fun good guns decent speed great climb and roll, it is a spit killer 8^)
3. Spitfire V, great plane great guns great handeling, great stop and go it is a 109 and a 190 killer

If I had room I would add the Corsair, just for the beefy raw power, the p38 for the same reason and the Bf110 because it is fun for ground pounding and the sniper rear gunner has saved my bacon more than a few times.

I need a plane you can point at the ground to build speed and seperation. I also love a plane that has buckets of power 'on tap'.
Before i started playing Il2 i always preferred turn & burn fights, now i rely on speed and SA. I presume this game more accurately reflects the characteristics that combat pilots wanted.
