...or, rather, the old best but still http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Allow me to explain:

As is (probably not so) well known I'm pretty hopeless with fighters, but as a ground-attack pilot I'm gradually starting to be rather OK. I've mostly flown the Sturmovik and, frankly speaking, gotten into a rut with it lately as well, all the way to the point of pretty much ignoring everything else there is ground-attackwise http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif But luckily enough my good old mate Sergei (who's an excellent fighter pilot, BTW) talked me into trying the Dauntless on the Zeke vs. Wildcat a while ago, and...

FEEKIN' H3LL! This bird is just excellent!!! It's easy to fly, very stable, packs a tremendous punch w/ that 1600 Lbs. bomb, has a good tailgun and dives like a mofo. What more can you ask for, eh???

And it seems that this hawt burdie likes me too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif I just visited the PikAs4.07 server today where she's available on the desert map (historical? dunno) and flew a longish bombing mission with her there w/ a result of 33 ground units destroyed by that big baaad bomb http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif The flak, however, punctured my fuel tanks, so I had to dead-stick her in when I ran out of gas - but even THAT to my amazement went flawlessly: made a beautiful landing with flaps 1 - no fuss, no mess, not a scratch on the bird or myself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

OK, done rambling here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif And oh yeah, did I mention already that I just love this bird???

S! And keep on giving it to those enemies of yours well and good, ladies and gents, be they Blue or Red http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

S! again! MSa out.

She's very sturdy, but her front armament isn't all what it could be.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Fly friendly!

Dive limit is 340 in that plane. You best loop it before you go vertically down. It also has a pencil.
