Look, you can find opinions everywhere; don't let that confuse you. Take what you want and fly it.
LA-7 is excellent fighter; but then again TA-152 is also. Pick your favourite plane and fly it.
It is dubious on what plane would you learn faster or better, but thing is you must play a lot 'till you master flying/gunnery technique. You can also record few missions online so you can observe more experienced players and their moves on your favourite ride, as well as your own tracks so you can correct errors in the future if you have made them.

Bottom line is take what you want and play with it.

I think you need to write down all of your questions and condense it a little. I'm quite happy to help but put all your questions in one thread please http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


You'll find 100 billion different opinions here on everything from bullet ballistics and dispersion to the proper color of the pilots hat. So you're not going to get a universal answer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Do some research for yourself. Read up on the Lavochkin fighters a bit. Read up on Russian fighters. They were designed to be flown by pilots with almost no experience and they were designed to be expendible over the long term. Yaks in particular were built with quantity in mind.

The La-7 is the fastest propeller fighter at sea level, its light, its manueverable, it climbs relatively well...its the perfect plane to prop up a new pilot with little experience.

If you want a challenge (and be prepared to be shot down alot) then the FW190, P-38 or the P-47 is it. If you want somnething middle of the road then the Yaks or Spitfires may be ideal. Somewhere in between middle and top is the Mustang and 109. Lots of options...lots of choices. Find the plane that suits you will, spend some time on it then expand your horizons. Thats about all I can say.

Some will say "take the hardest first" and some will say "work your way up" and I say: "In the end you have to figure it out for yourself."

I found flying in this game seemingly impossible when i first got it.One day I just screw what everyone else says,I'm doin my own thing.So I learned the basics in an I-16 and I-153.Got pretty dang good in those birds,so made the move to something else I liked,the Hurri.The Hurri my friend is a very docile plane to learn more advanced flight moves IMHO....

My point is you should focus on the planes YOU like and not what everyone tells you are good planes.Best thing is to work your way up from the earlier planes so you are able to develop your combat skills and not come to rely solely on what ur plane can do,but rather what you can do.

And, the IL2 Type 3M 1943 is great!

You can do lots of fun flying in it.

And it's what made all of this possible in the first place!

Have Fun!
