Well, we've all heard the whines. But which v.4.01 AC are _good_ IYO?

My fave is the I-153. The FM is of high quality, and the bird itself sweet. It's a lovely - and lively - old biplane http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What's your pick?

I like P400 very much.Current FM is very hard on the plane.You must be an expert to beat a 109 of the same year.

I second that. Really good plane with just about perfect FB power armament.

And that also. G2 is very good plane.
G6s and G10 are also good planes.

I prefer lately to fly some Lavochkins which aren't bad either. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway those are the ones I play much with/against lately so there are more good rides in game. Yes, P-39 also...

I like them all.... IMO the FMs get better with each patch... and they also get new problems with each patch but i have no doubt that 1C is working toward accuracy..... so I just try to enjoy them all. I am too busy having fun to bitc# and moan too much about anyone thing.. although I do have some issues.... I have more fun than issues so......

Bf109G2.

Turns better than Spits, p40, p39, p51.
Its comparable to yak and La5 in turn but has more energy and can climb steeper than the yak.
Yak3p and La5FN/La7 is a tiny bit better in turn and regains energy as well as the 109.

I can never decide if G2 feels too good or not. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Perhaps the Spit is a wee bit too tame afterall.
Well atleast the 109G2 is highest on my list, along with the later Yaks and La's

well , what I think.


My favorites are poor performers.
Not nescessarily in this order:

# IAR 80's
# Il-2
# Brewster
# Betty
# ki43
# Hurricane
# The Zero with one mg taken out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
# Dauntles

# Early P40's

You bet it is, it is a P40 with a zero on it's tail. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

My favs:

MustangIII - so fast that you don't even notice bad rear view, lol
Yak9U - rocket climb, good maneouvrability, excellent performance at all speeds, excellent visibility, deadly firepower in UT version
Fw190D9 - Dora. 'nuff said.

I-185 is a dream to fly. I know it's sort of a dream plane, but it's a nice birdt anyway.

Ta-152 once you get it up to 8000m it fun and it handles just right...
then there is the p-38j and the ki-61 , zeke's, betty , he-111 and the Fiat g.50

I've a soft spot for Bf110. There's something very satisfying when flying it.

BF110 and P-39, but i hadn't really played them a lot before 4.01.

Try taking off in the MiG-3U...

Yeah... lots of fun during takeoff. You have to practically keep the joystick pulled all the way back so that the plane won't nose over.

Once you are on the air though, it is sweet.

The top 4 easiest to "fly" that I have toyed with since 4.01 are:

1. IL2
2. Bf-109E
3. LaGG-3
4. Bf-110C

The hardest for me:

1. Spitfire

The 109 G2 is grossly over modeled in the climb and the turn.

The LaGG 3 is grossly overmodeled in the turn.

My fave rides remain the P40E and Ki61.

I find the late war planes boring.

Strangely, I can fly the Spitfire better now than I could before the patch, "feels" (I use the term loosely) like it has more weight than it used to and seems more natural to fly these days (personal opinion obviously).

109-G2 is a killer, not sure if it really should be as good as it is but in the game it is a sure fire winner.

THE BUFFALO! Flying the Dutch campaign at the moment. It is slow, unstable (the nose is all over the place!), and has a nasty tendency to drop it's left wing during take-off and landing which makes it dangerous. Still, Fifth mission, 4 kills, still alive!

I can't fly the spit. I just can't scissor with it, or do other evasive manouvres. I turn left, the plane stalls and I'm point to the right. I try to compensate (gently) and suddenly the nose is to the left. This wouldn't be bad if I would actually be turning. But I'm not. I'm just rolling...

Actually,the IAR is one of the most screwed aircraft in the game but don`t quote me.

Mustang MkIII. Fast, responsive, every thing I've read about that plane seems to be reflected in what we have. Real nice plane to fly.

Agreed there. All the 190's are nice to fly. High speed roll on the A4 is pretty bad though.

P39 Q10 and Spit VIII (both clip and standard) remain my fav rides as always.

All planes have more interesting and challenging FM, however unlike many others I see little change in TnB rankings. Spit still beats 109 (any spit, any 109) fairly easy. Q10 flat spins still occasionally catch me out, always have....
