This is education and a tip for online 109 pilots, and a plea for giving a chance for brave p11 opponents. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A stuka can be a BnZ'ing fighter against P11's.
I like the early stukas. They have limited chances against fighters with cannons but can be quite good against mg equipped fighters.
Against the p11 the stuka is a monster. P11's can't catch an experienced stuka pilot. I often use it as an BnZ'er against p11 and go in and out of furballs spraying on them with my two peashooters infront(light mg's).
The fun thing is that it takes time and repeated attacks to shoot down a p11 but its easy to fly away from it in level flight if necessary.
P11 can spray its peashooters at a stuka but a stuka can take almost all its ammo and fly on, unless it gets a lucky strike in the engine.

To fly a 109 against a p11 is almost a crime really, since a p11 never could catch a 109 unless its damaged or piloted by an unexperienced or someone with extreem bad luck.
P11 also have only a fraction of the 109's firepower. It would be ok for a rookie pilot to use the 109 though, because he would make too many misjudgements and likely mistakes too.

This post is a tip and request for the 109 pilots out there.
If u encounter a DF map with p11 as opponent.
Consider trying the Stuka and thus give the brave p11 pilots atleast a limited chance to win. U will also experience the unique feeling of using the cr@ppy stuka as a BnZ'ing fighter with good chances of wining air-engagements, wich wont happen often online.

Happy hunting m8's http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I've flew with B Stuka against P.11s and it really rocks big time. The only reason for that is that JU-87 is fasetr machine and P.11 cannot simply follow.
It can also bomb P.11s on ground and I have enjoyed such actions on UK_dedicated1 on JU-87 v P.11 map.

Once when in disadvantage JU-87 has no chance against P.11 if he catch Stuka in close range and aims for wing roots.

I've had some success in this respect with the Stuka against hurricanes. On one occasion I was able to actually out turn him and shoot him down with the forward guns. They're small and there are only 2 of them but you've got plenty of ammo to plink away with.

Once you've dropped the bomb load she's quite spritely with those big wings and flaps. You've got the rear gunner firing away and there's no harm in selecting combat flaps and having a go. I don't know about B'n'Z'ing though, I'm always sneaking back on the deck after dropping my bombs, usually with a couple of enemy fighters in tow.

Still loads of fun, and quite a good aircraft for building up an impressive points tally in a full real early planeset server.

It's a clever idea. At least we have that rear gunner if we screw up.
