Fighterjerks will be offering same-plane matchups for anyone wanting to study ACM with similar aircraft. Every week I will replace the plane with a new one.

If you want to take a methodical approach to becoming a better pilot, or just want to prove that you can beat the pants of anyone, stop by and try it out.

This weeks plane is my personal favorite: I-153s http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Next will will be early 109's. After that, who knows?

So bring your best turn-n-burn style, and don't forget your scarf.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

No gifts, no prizes, and no hot chicks with champaign. Sorry.

Its just a place where everyone is on equal footing. All planes are capable of the same thing, so it comes down to pilot skill.

The idea came to me when I (one of the nets sorriest pilots) was able to decimate ace AI using what I learned from my new book. The AI is too predictable, so I need tougher opponents http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So, I figured I'd study online, with pilots who don't do the same darned thing after a pass http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

All are welcome, and encouraged, to stop by and give it a whirl. Its kinda fun, and you can learn a lot by watching someone else do it better (I am not referring to myself).

So how many planes per server? or is it 1v1? Sounds fun I like doing this, 1v1 then then winner lands takes on a new opnant. Crashing means your out. So landing after a kill is bad. two new players. Got to get home with kills to claim them.

We sometimes have several in the same room waiting and watching the show for their chance to go at it. All parked on same strip. Two take off opposite directions climb to 2000 then turn make a head on and not shoot then guns go hot after the first pass.

This sounds like a job for FBD2 ! You should check out greetergreen mate you could have stats (eventually) and set up so that after the person dies they get booted and banned till the next one on one the winner stays on of course. Also You would need to warn them in the brief so they dont flame yah! This sounds like a bloody good Idea mate I think I might incorporate it into my own squad maps what you think Toad?

T_O_A_D Your idea is exactly like the old tournaments in Fighterduel, boy did I love those. 1v1 , head to head first pass no shooting, then have at it. The best of five duels won the match. The disadvantage was it was via modem, long-distance phone calls. An advantage in FD was you air started within sight of each other facing your opponent so the first pass was easy and quick and equitable. When the Spits are available this kind of dueling would be awesome.

On Hyperlobby, look for FighterJerks.

It may be empty, but from what I've seen, all you have to do is join and several others will follow suit.

T even it up I'd suggest equal bases if you can find 2 of them suitable. Had one guy leave as soon as he saw no padlocks. But I dib't mind since I don't use it.
