Considering the following rules:

* Offline only, AI=Ace
* Cockpit OFF
* Unlimited Ammo
* Battle against same type planes

Which of the following planes would be your preferred choice (and why)?

Despite beeing a J8A "apprecionado", I really have to go for the I-153P version. In a dogfight the J8A and the I-153 M62 is equally leathal but those cannons in the P version gives it a HUGE advantage. With unlimited ammo settings (shame on you) there is no question about it!

I wouldn't call either I-16 or P11 biplanes but even so I would go for the Chaika "Kabooom" P

In a biplane vs biplane fight, I'd have to go with the J8A or the Cr42. The cannons on the I-153 are too lethal IMO to make for an extended up-close-and-personal fight and one hit being able to seriously disable an aircraft isn't as much fun.

I-153m/62 vs Gladiator is great fun.. but I-153P vs Gladiator is nonsence..

and besides I-153 with cannons was kinda rare anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have to agree with most of you guys. With the Cannon Chaika on the table there is not that much competition.

But somehow I'd go for the J8A Gladiator, just for the sporting spirit. If I survive the 1st pass I know I can give the Chaika a pretty tough time.

I-16P... Hands down as far as Fire Power... But voted for the J8A Gladiator a Great Flying Craft with decent amount of Fire Power!

Oh... don't get me wrong.. For love I'd choose the J8a, if I want to survive and you hand me the 153P.. I choose that onehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

P.11 isn't a bipe, but I'm **** good in it! I've shot down 109K-4's in a P.11 before.

best i ever got online in the p11c was a p39

rarely got shot down in it though

What about the U2V-S? That plane can take down Me-262s. If only it was flyable...

02-15-2005, 07:02 PM
I-153P hands down. The weapons are great and it can sustain some relatively high speeds for a bipe.

CR-42 in the desert for me.
Viva Italia!

Decent turn, higher speed, good firepower.

the thread starter is basically asking which Bi-Plane you prefer to fly is all
