What is your favorite plane to shoot down?

I started playing a campaign last week and I am flying the series 1 Sturmovik and I found that I love to shoot down Bf-110s. I follow a 110 and give them a short burst every once in a while just to let them know I am back there. Then the payoff comes when they pull up or turn and you catch a glimpse of those nice big wings just begging for a long burst from your cannons. I throw my plane all over the sky just to get a burst off when they do that!

I've downed a fair number of 109s in the campaign and I admit that they require more skill and a lot more work to bring down, but I prefer blasting a 110 from the sky.

I also enjoy shooting down Heinkels.

I love attacking Stukas from behind just after they've gone into a dive. They are pretty helpless and break apart easily with a few well placed shots. If you are able to catch them while they're diving, there's a special bonus because the dive siren will fly off and spiral around making an unmistakably awesome noise. I almost feel guilty shooting a JU-52 but they're just too perfect to pass up.

the only good p-47 is a p-47 with no wings, an engine on fire and a screaming pilot trapped in the cockpit while it tumbles back to earth after being ripped to shreds by 4 20mm cannons, mounted on the ultimate warbird , THE ALMIGHTY HAWKER TYPHOON.


anyone agree?

the best plane to shoot down is the one your aiming for...

the most fun plane to shoot down would be the me262 if you ask me. you just hit an engine and watch it burn. if it goes right, the engine keeps burning and explodes, tearing off the wing, causing more fire and sending the plane down. you can even get it to explode more than once if your lucky. great fun to watch.

The P-47. Its big, and takes a lot of hits.

Well, no doubt is the Me 323 "Giant".
It's big, you have 6 engines to flame out, and, listen: if you choose to loadout it with 40 paratroopers, you'll see 40 guys plus the crew bailing out!!! Too cool!!!

i too like shooting 110's down - mainly as they are so easy to do so - a slow, large target and not as manuevarable as any fighter you are likely to be in.
i would also suggest them as practice for people who are new to the game.
however - if one gets behind you and their shots are accurate, it can all be over pretty quickly.!!

109's are nice to shoot down too as they come apart so easy, or at least end up with holes all over the place - really pretty!!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

P-39. It's such a crap plane and deserves to be taken out of the sky where it has no right to be! P-39 pilots seem to think they're the canines ******. I like to show them they're not, which is easy to do with any other a/c.

Great thread man, especially with all this "K4 patch bug" uproar.

Hmmm, well online definately IP-153's, I FOCUS on knocking a wing off of these pests and pilots who never do anything besides hover like hummingbirds to pick off real dogfighters while they're engaged.

And 262's also, love punishing bad tactics of unkowledgable pilots with a flaming engine or two, and they explode as well as anything in game.

Also fun to catch FW's at top of zoom after misjudging my energy; they dont explode so well, but love imagining look on the face of pilot who thought they were invincible with their 12 cannons.


Offline, Zwillings are fun for practice; I've had them to keep flying with half of the plane missing.

P-47s, because, statistically, and usage wise, they don't belong here, and just about every one I run across has USAAF markings.

So, that means there's a "John Wayne" gottawin at the controls. And them's good eatin'.

I have this thing about flying the 190 with the 6 twenties, even though strangely it is much slower and heavier than even the one with the 103s or 500Kg bomb.
My fav target is the P-47, lots of area to shoot at and very tough.
BTW what's with the crap whining about it's engine being'fragile'?

Bf-110s. Something about them just feels evil. Lots of fun and very satisfying to blast them from the sky.

And for some reason, even better in a .303 armed plane.

I will love to shoot the B-17 down with a 190- but it had a crew of 10, not 8. Right now my favorite targets are P-39's. I hate those things. Nothing brings satisfaction like hitting that super-vulnerable engine on the 'Cobra and watching some poor fool spiral down in that bird.

P39, has been since IL2. Can't really explain why, but I think it has something to do with its sillouette. Maybe because the engine in the middle makes me want to shoot at it, not sure though. When it is in a shallow climb, banked slightly towards me and i'm on its 7 o'clock, something about the way it looks just screams "kill me".

MiGs are visually very satisfying, but there's nothing like the rush you get from flaming a Chaika with a high deflection shot. Everything else is reasonably killable, but those guys are a b*%$tch to hit, much less kill.
