View Full Version : Lowdown and Dirty

Hi Guys just a quick newbee question. I have just finished watching a IL2 movie made by Scragbat called The Ace of Spades. Great movie by the way
This is the type of flying I like to do down low and dirty close to the deck and back up to mid altitude. Well my question is which model of the LW aircraft is that in the movie that is shot down by the spitfire and is it modelled in FB. I'm looking at a nice new ride to develop my skills and I have so far have looked at the la5, La7, Yak 3 and need some others that will fit into this short list of fast moving maneuverability fighters. That can turn and burn with these guys. Remenber I'm talking fast low to mid altitude that can cause these few aircraft I have listed to sweat and so fire power would be nice. I'm not asking for tooo much in my new beautiful ride http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hi http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The plane in the vid is the Fw 190 A9, this plane along with the Fw 190 D9 are two of the fastest low / medium level planes in the game. They are heavily armed and armoured and have an amazing rate of roll.

If you are a real beginner you will find them very tough to fly however, I know I did , I flew the 109 for a year 1st. If you persist you will find that these planes are the most manuverable planes in the game - at a high speed. The only thing that comes close is the Mustang. What you need to do is stay fast and fight in large extended dogfights where you use your fire power in head ons and chasing planes that run away.

There will be a lot of advice on the Fw190 posted here by other fliers if you ask for it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

ps Scrappy would be lucky to win such a dog fight online in a Spit IX against a A9 as the A9 can out run it indefinately then turn around and ice him head on.
