It was the first plane I ever tried in this series, so I have a special affection for it. It has a reliable feel to it.
I was shot down by one in a dogfight with it the other night on one of the UK dedicated servers on HL. It wasn't you by any chance?
(I was in a 109...with a heavy bomb...that's my excuse http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif).

No Sir, wasn't me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Haven't flown @ UKDed for a while now & what little OL I've played lately has been on random servers - y'know, just pick up a server @ HL & check it out...

I _have_ OTOH shot down a couple of Biffers in a Sturmo. One I remember was @ UKDed some months ago - a CRAZY deflection shot w/ my cannons and presto - a Bf109 minus left wing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

The other one I remember was @ VirtualPilots a while ago. A n00b in a Messer parked on my six and shot _really_ badly. I then incapacitated his engine w/ my tail gun and finished the poor bugger off w/ a pair of rockets after he had belly-landed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif Not very gentlemanly, sure, but effective http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, the Stormbird r0Xx B sure!

I saw one take a continuous 3 second slaughter from a 109, and just kept flying good as new. But then, I took another one out in my Bf-110 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nope. Since the 4.01 patch, it has been casterated. Blows apart from the smallest hits anymore, and the rockets just plain $uck. I use to be able to take out ships with 4 BRS-82's and the PTAB's. Combined with the giant cannon, I could EASILY get 3 to 4 ship kills per mission, now, lucky if I get one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
