I just had a very interesting evening when playing on a server by a fellow squad member and he had all the planes nobody ever wanted to play. Like the B239? (I think, its a tiny plane), the p-40, some early 39 warbird like the i-153 or i-16(sorry, I suck with names), but just generaly planes that have usually a huge disadvantage over other planes. i grew actually quite fond of the 239, it was a rather comical looking plane, but it was great fun to fly and I even got to shoot down several planes with it!

The point being, and I realize it has been said before; flying these 'unterplanes' (opposite of uberplane) is great fun and sometimes I think those who go for uberplanes or easy planes are missing out on a lot of fun. It was carnage, with low alt action all the time. Plane after plane was going down. It was a blast. You'd take off while planes crash down left and right of you and you have to fight with the controls to keep your plane from tipping over to one side or the other.


but i haven't had this much fun in a long time. thanks again Genosse, that was a great server; we should do that again real soon /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

That's very much fun yes but keep in mind that that is how the planes never (dismissing some exceptions) were used. Getting into df right after takeoff... and all.

I disagree with that statement.
I recommend you both Ilmari Juutilainens "Double FighterKnight" and Heinz Knokes "I flew for the führer" and youll see they both mention taking off and engaging enemy right away....thats called a scramble. Also happened a lot during BoB. Attacking airfields werent uncommon and of course they have to take off and engage the enemy.

The B239 currently is an "unterplane." In reality it was a real contender to I-16. In its current form it does not have a chance unless
*you have a wingman who is NOT dreaming of aria giovanni and
*the opponent does NOT know how to use high yo-yo's.

Sounds like a great time.

The B239, I153 & i-16 are definitely the cutest planes around. I am surprised there aren't more Fun paint schemes for these. Somebody wanna make some polka dot skins ?

Or put Garfield on one ??

I used to really enjoy the one airbase all P11c servers in the old IL2 (most negative score won) they were hilarious.

1) The crap planes thread is NOT dead - it´s not dead, it´s just ... resting! ok!?/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

2) yes, Genosse´s server rocked. Fell in love with the P40 there. Among other unterplanes the Warhawk performs great -and if you handle her with care, you can do some nice TnB´ing. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
