A friend and coworker of mine frequently visit the 4.08 servers after work, just to get some quick and dirty adrenaline rush airquake satisfaction. We both have our personal favs. He his Spitfire25lbs, I used to prefer the FW190D9. We also are pretty equal in pilot skill.

Back then when we started the Spit 25 was still fairly new, and he owned me with it anytime we went up. Due to that I switched to the Spit myself and gotta say..in dogfight servers, this is the queen to rule them all. Flew it there ever since.

Now, fast forward to last week. Once again we discussed the merits of planes, and after I flew the Spit for all this time almost exclusivly I really got a hang out of it's strenghs and weaknesses. I then remarked the Spit is a superb plane, but the FW190D9, consequently flown to it's strengh, will make short work of the spit "anytime". BEEEEEP, bad mistake. Said friend started to grin and said "yeah, sure, mhm, anytime, you wish".

Manly pride taking the lead, we quickly settled to duke it out the old fashioned way. A 1 on 1, cockpit free server, nothing but the raw plane capability, nothing about secondary traits like visibility and so on. Whoever manages to first score 10 kills wins the battle. The one to lose had to admit "you have been right, you are right, and you always will be right", upon asked by the other for an entire week, no matter how often and in what situation.

So, we went at it. Him, flying the Spit 25lbs, me the D9 44.

End result,

10 : 3.

For the Dora.

This week is going to be sweet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Bring him on med alt or even high alt (Spit25 is worse than vanilla Spit at high alts http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif ) and drag him around.

Any way he can gain on you is if he is above when you start fight or if you maneuver fight with him for prolonged periods.

I'm heavily owning people with FW-190D for a long long time now on dogfight servers where pure plane capability rules.

Same thing would be with P-51.
Put cannons on that plane and we have new best in IL2.

Also one another interesting fact.

In the last year or two while flying FW-190D on closed pit server (no externals either, mostly on WarClouds), I have been shot down by any type of Spitfire under 5 times.
While Tempest, P-51 and Thunderbolt are just extremely dangerous and I have been shot down/damaged by them many times.

Speaks volumes.

Absolutely, been saying this for ages now.

SPitfires are dangerous when you first start flying, but as you get a better pilot the fast energy fighters are far more dangerous.

However the Spitfire XIV would be a dangerous beast, if it were in the game.

It all depends on what year you are fighting, in 1941 the 109 rules supreme, in 1942 its the Fw190 or 109, in 1943 the Spitfire IXc, 1944 the Tempest/P51D, in 1945 its the Dora or Me262.
