I am a dedicated FW190 flier for quite a time now, I just love the sheer firepower, the rollrate and the handling. But last night I tried the Me109 G-2 model, just for old time's sake http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
I start chasing a P-39, mission impossible, the elevator has almost nada responce, vector roll does not work like it is supposed to...T&B should work... I trottle down to 400kmh drop combat flaps, and chase the Cobra. speed is going down, I am really troubled now, good that it only the two of us up there... surprise, surprise, T&B works, I finally get behind the Cobra, Aim... the third burst finally hits the engine and the P-39 goes flaming. so muchfor the precision shooting. If I were in my trustworthy FW190A-4, the cobra would be already a cloud of debris or a smoking hole in the ground.

I will never look back.

Hm. That didn't surpised me.. you say Cobra? They are very agile and dangerous oppo's.. I have faced cobraQ10 and LA7 driver online in one of my recent games, and must say that cobra gave me very hard time (I was in KI84 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif). For some time he was even outturned me on the approx. same speed, but in the end.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

About elevator that is known issue.. what you must have noticed is how hard you can turn with Me109.. that luxury you don't have in Fw190.

And also acceleration is very very good.

P-39 N model http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif and the turning ability...it is good, but so low and slow... I constantly had the feeling that if I turn around I will see a La5 screaming down on me, all guns blazin'.

Besides, the durability... harsh words can do the job http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

Excellent! Just in time for Thanksgiving.

As for the 'Cobra, it's always been a plane everyone should respect - most especially the pilot. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Flown well, it's always been dangerous because it's reasonably good at all forms of fighting, although it masters none of them.

Dedication to your plane despite fighting the Mustang, a superior opponent, is commendabe.
I will salute before killing you, in the future.

You can`t fly 109 same style as 190...that`s why Cobra gave you hard time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif G2 can own pretty much every plane in this sim, if flown there it has to be flown http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Compared to many other fighters in the game it ain't easy. But it's usually my standard ride. I prefer the earlier marks (E through G6). But I feel that once you get decent in the 109 most other planes are a breeze. Although I find the 190 to be a bit twitchy. I guess I'm just not used to it's quick roll. I definately do better in a 109 than an FW.

In fact, if you want to know how good I am in a 109, just ask Ivan.

I once shot him down while he was flying a 110 on my side. THAT'S how good I am. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Every turkey I've ever hunted (and I've hunted lots of them) was amazingly quick, frustratingly slow, cautious, alert, and worthy of all my respect.

Calling the Bf-109 a turkey is a compliment.

A turkey??

A turkey with VERY large talons if flown correctly. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I would rather fly the 109's than anything else in the game and I LOVE the La's, the Spits, the Franks and am learning to like the Corsair. But for absolute FUN, I'll take a 109 EVERY time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Can't agree on that one. Treat it like a zero and it's no problem.

Has anyone ever noticed how a Turkey flying by (http://www.bf109.com/sounds/109flypast.mp3) sounds just like a 109 and a 109 starting its engine sounds suspiciously like a gobbling (http://www.vaturkey.com/sounds/gobble2.wav) turkey? (http://www.vaturkey.com/sounds/lostyelp1.wav)

Its true, be sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
