The PE-2 is the Mosquito or A-20 of the east, it is beautiful. I ave always loved it. A beauty never recognized by the west as a very very good plane it is. And did I allready say it; it is a beauty.

Pe-2 is the Russian Mosquito by all accounts. So I'm sure I'd see myself attempting to make the Pe-2 in a very fast low altitude attack bomber the chances that I got to.

What advantages should the Pe-2 have over the A-20?

I would LOVE a Tu-2. Like the Pe-2, only with a greater bomb load and better weaponry. Not many aircraft of that size have THREE tailgunners.

I would fly the bugsnot out of it offline. Ever since I saw one I've been wondering why it was not in the game. It seems like the perfect sparring partner for ME-110.

Pe-2 are not anywhere near as fast as the Mosquito

last time i compared them close was just after AEP's release

the first model is the fastest but the Pe-2 110 had the best guns

the 84 model was a good in-between model

performance is slightly better (speed , manouverbility) than the A-20 we have in-game right now

definantly not as good as the Mosquito tho

The Pe-2/3 series was quite a versatile aircraft like the Ju-88. It's mainly able to do quick dive bombing or high speed level bombing runs. OK, it's not ultra fast, but early in the war it's quite some speed. The Pe-3 series is rather a heavy fighter like the 110. It not just like another bomber. The 359 does 500 on the deck, the 1 480. The other 2 are a tad slower. It's a plane that might bring you back home, other than a bulky, slow Stuka or Heinkel with low armament.
