You call 2x30mm on the 110 weak? its the best bomber killer weaponry you can find.

That said, I want the P-63.

more heavily armed than the beayfighter. the c variant was ridiculously fast, failr maneuverable . . and RADAR!!!!

And it is by far one of the sexiest/deadliest planes in terms of looks that came out of WWII.

Easy - Me262, particularly the 1a.

Wipes the floor, performance and armament wise, with any other twin engined fighter + beats most single engined pre-1946 fighters, to boot.

You know you're onto a winner when you have an aircraft that the enemy has to ambush you on take off and landing in order to stand a chance in taking you down.

Favourite flyable twin in the game game; A-20.
Some joker shot my P-47 to pieces booming and zooming me in an A-20 a few months back and I have fallen in love with it since then

Favourite non-flyable twin in the game; Reconnisance version of the Ki-46'Dinah', one of the most refined and elegant looking planes ever built. A real testament to the engineering maximum 'if it looks right, it is right'

Favourite twin of all time; the Westland Whirlwhind, the fighter that should of been. Had the capacity to be one of the great fighter planes but misfortune and official vacilation doomed it. 366 mph at alt with 2x 885 hp single stage Peregrins. It was faster on the deck and had lighter control forces than contemporary Spitfires. Imagine if some-one in the MAP had been farsighted enough to give it Merlins and bigger fuel tanks!

Oops, I meant default armament with the bf110.
If fighting with fighters, all the extra weight means less chance to survive.
But going for bombers or land targets, the 110 has everything needed.

Huh deadly? doesn't it only have one mg sticking out the back? btw I would love to see this plane flyable in some sim.

The more I read on the Ju-88 the more it grows on me. Especially the Zertoyer variant. I've also been a fan of the 110 and P-38 ever since I can remember. I'd fly them more, but I just can't get myself out of the 190 cockpit.

I love the 110! I tried it out for kicks one day when I saw you could take up 2x108's and 2Xmg151/20, and I killed three on my first time up with it! My whole squad is scared pantsless when I go up in that thing. I don't know why me and this plane clicked so well but I've had so many people say "impossible!" or "a bf110 can't do that!". It's gotta be some kinda sickness when you're dissapointed you shot someone down and they crash instead of blowing to itty-bitty pieces instantly.

Hmmm,
It seems that of those already flyable in the game, the P-38 is taking the longest straw.

Funny to see, that many people are actually waiting for other planes, instead of enjoying those already in the game. Well, I guess that's like in life in general, people are always waiting for a new patch/ job/ computer/ car/ messiah/ life...

Cause some people have either played this game so long and so much there tired of the same old rides and they want somthing new or in the case of me, I like the planes in there already but Im really looking forward to 3 legendary RAF planes that may turn up the next patch that I don't belive any other sim has done them justice whereas I think Oleg and 1C:M will.

I can't see how anyone who likes FW190's or the thrill of fast low atitude combat won't be looking forward to the Tempest (go read the Big Show, you will want to fly one after reading that book). I can't see how anyone who likes fast precision ground pounding won't be looking forward to the Mosquito and I can't see how anyone who likes high altitude fighting won't be looking forward to the Spitfire XIV. 3 very different aircraft which all will give people new challenges. Not to mention the other planes coming in the patch. All unique.

My favorites would be:

1) P-38, its just a classic
2) Westland Whirlwind - a plane with so much potential but with the wrong engine. It would have been a great stablemate to the Spitfire and Hurricne. The nose armament of 4 x 20mm Hispano's was ahead of its time. I have kits sitting on my shelf of this beauty. One of these days I'll build them. Either Roy Sutherland's vacuum form kit or the Classic Airframes kit made from Roy's original molds.
3) He-219 built for one thing and it did it well. The German nightfighter that could combat the Mosquito.
4) the Mosquito, another classic
and lastly for a fantasy,
5) PZL P.38 Wilk (Wolf) prototype destroyer aircraft armed with a 20mm and two .30 cal. in the nose and a rear gunner with a single Lewis gun. Not ready for serial proiduction before the war started in 1939.

"He-219 built for one thing and it did it well."

Actually it was intended to be multi-role, including schnellbomber, or at least some development was done on alternative roles. I can't remember which role it was intended to fulfill initially. Largely, though, it was the victim of politics - the RLM just didn't seem to like Heinkel very much.

Jagdklinger

Game: I think the Bf110 has the edge, as I fly it like a twin-engined plane. (I tend to fly a P38 like a 109 and thus pay the price...)
Plus, I love cannons. Pass me another Mk108, please.

Out of game, the Me410 has a 'cool' factor the He219 can't match. Beau is just too slow, and a/s does not appeal anyway. What I'd like to see: postwar I think DH put out a "Sea Hornet" - carrier based twin did 700kph+ if I recall correctly?
