Im thinking of setting up a dogfight server to have opposing pairs of planes only available-ie one red and one blue....Of course the Warbirds of Prey servers Spits Vs 109s and Zekes Vs Wildcats are legendary even if they dont actually feature only 2 opponents.(Did they ever?)
I know of at least two of this style of server ran in the past that Ive enjoyed- by the Fighting Irish Squadron once a week (their P47D Late Vs Fw190D9 was fun)and by a guy called 'Polish Beginner'(Tempest Vs 190D9)
So what do you think -good idea or bad ?suggestions for pair ups?I was thinking 109G6AS Vs Yak 3 maybe, although Cr42 Vs Gladiator would be fun Id bet.Should I be looking at two very closely matched planes eg Yak1B and Bf109F4 or a faster plane against a more maneuverable one eg Bf110G2 Vs I16-24???Any thoughts /ideas appreciated.

Don't know about the "classic" part, but...
Bf-110G vs Pe-3 bis.
Hurri MkI vs G-50.
Val vs SBD.
Ki-27 vs Buffalo.

Tb-3 vs Tb-3

Its more like a battle with flying battleships than a dogfight, but the most fun you can have in this game IMHO

think some of the early war missions do feature just wildcats and A6M2s, although there would be SBDs, D3As, G4Ms as required for bombing.

Tempest/190D-9 & Yak-1b/109G-2 are both very close match-ups and the suggestions above are also fun.

LaGG-3 ser4/109E-7 is also very close. This LaGG is usually outclassed in historic scenarios by the F-2/4, but there were still plenty of Emils around for Barbarossa. LaGG is about 15 kph faster, but Emil climbs and turns better (especially at slow speed).

Ki-84 v Yak-3 or 9U - very close all round.

Spit Vb/c v A6M3 - very close all round at low level.

190A-8 v P-47D-27 - also close

Some unequal (generally speed v manoeuvrability) but fair match-ups might be:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>Finnish Hurri I v I-16 or Gladiator v I-153

P-63 v 190D-9

Spit VIII/IX v 190A-5/6[/list]
Good luck with the server. IMO the best, most fun, DFs have very limited planesets like the 1 fighter per side you're thinking of.

This would be great fun. Even with the 190 A-8.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif I have tried it a couple of times with my friends, and it just rocks! It has a certain feeling when you're chasing a smoking, turnfighting TB-3 with another one. BTW I prefer unlimited ammo in this kind of fight, so your gunners can go totally crazy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Especially, if you use the SPB versions and strap a couple of I-16s underneath, but they are not allowed to detatch until the TB3 is going down. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Flying PBY as AI fights are fun, too.

Jumping back and forth into the gunner's positions is a blast and the best is when you kill one of the enemy gunners, but it was the human controlling it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Dogfighting bombers is the shiznet! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I like a Spit Vc against 109-F4 match-up. The Spitfire has to work a little harder as it does not climb as well, but the dogfights are fun.
