Just wondering what everyones favourite aircraft matchups are?

A few of mine;

Spitfire L.F. Vb clipped vs 190A4/A5; Really hard work for the Spitfire pilot, but getting a low level kill on one of those speedy little FockWulfs is REALLY satisfying. Both planes roll and switch direction so well that it makes you dizzy.

P-51D vs 190D9; High up escort style fight, lots of energy management, frantic dives and carefully judged deflection shots.

P-47 vs 190A; Sort of like 2 super heavyweights slugging it out against each other. Not pretty. The 190 rules the roost down low and the P-47 is a killer up high. Do a merge at 4000m with equal energy and its like dogfighting in slowmotion sometimes.

Hurricane IIb vs Me-110; Speed and firepower go to the 110 but the Hurricane holds all the aces at low level and lower speeds. And those DB-605s light up so nicley, even with all those golden BBs flying! Rear gunner means you have to be careful with your approaches as well.

190F vs P-40/Ha-81; Western desert match up, 109 rules the roost normally, but the Warhawk has a suprisingly good turn and accelerates like a rocket when going downhill.

Hurricane vs. Me109

Flying ace Adolf Galland had one thing to say about the Hurricane, "It was a nice airplane to shoot down."

When Adolf Hitler asked Adolf Galland what he needed to win the war, he replied, "a squadron of spitfires."

My alltime favorate pair

109 - spit

FW190A4 v. Spit Vb
FW190A8 v. La7 Because when you finally get the Ruskie you have a real sense of accomplishment.
B-239 v. I16 or I153

If we had the 40F/L I'd say 40 vs 109F.
Or 38 vs Zeke sounds good to me.

Any plane against itself is serious fun. Especially with random online players.

i like Chaikas versus Glads , is not a easy fight

109F4&G2 versus Spit Mk5 is good as is G6AS versus Mk9s

P-47s versus FW-190s is good , but buggy now

P-80s versus Me262s used to be good , now its a whitewash

& the Sturmovik versus the D5 JU-87 is a good fight too : )

The F4 vs MkV is probably the most fun match up. Wildcats vs 109F4's is also good fun.

I tried the Sky Captain style mission someone suggested a while ago - 16 Go229's vs 1 P40. Thats very good fun.
