Hey everyone, I've been playing on HL alot lately usually use Bf109 varients but Iwould like to use yhe FW more often but my problem is I can't fly/fight for love or money in these planes. I have done searches on the forums for advice(of which I badly need) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif but what I was wondering does any one know of any sites that have tactics for specific planes(FW-190 Bf-109,Yak,etc.)Any help would be helpful. Oh yea,what does T&B mean http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/351.gif Good fighting people and remember DEATH TO ALL WHO OPPOSE YOU!! ~S~

This will help you


btw T&B is something you shouldn't mention in a FW thread http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

For FW-specific guides:

Another thing U might want to contemplate is
the specs of your opponents.
Genarally I'd say that the faster opponent the more careful U have to be with sustaining your energy.

Yak3, La5FN, La7, Late spits, P51D and P51 mkIII are all bad news for the unfamiliar FW190 pilot.
These planes are fast enough to catch u ,or come close enough to put rounds into u and thus slowing u down bcause of drag from the damage.
The most irritating thing is that they also turn better in most situations.
That means that if u get slow for some reason they will dictate the fight and all u can do is wait for help to show up before u are shot down.

Seemingly a Fw190 pilot must be confident in the best evasive moves that will cause the chaser to miss as much as possible.

I suggest u record tracks online and later brows through the fw190 pilots to see how they cope and handle different situations.
Also note what the attacker do so u get a picture of that types capabilities.

Cope with being shot down alot during the trialperiod, but also explore the possibilites to survive and the best moment to bail out.
Sometimes one have to maneuver ones stricken plane so one can bail with less risk of being hit by bullets bailing or being hit by your own plane when your chute deploys, wich may happen if the plane is too slow while bailing out.
Do your best to survive.
