I'm beginning to really like the P-63C for ground attack (I like it for everything else too).

Downsides: Not heavily armored, and it can't carry rockets.

Upsides: Fast, which helps deliver its relatively-heavy bombloads accurately and safely. And the 37mm cannon is great for taking out vehicles.

It has to be the 110 for me. If i'm playing VVS its the IL-2 hands down.

Bf-110? GAH!

I hunt those dogs in my Sturmovik and turn them into lawn darts.

Viva los IL2!

P38 By far. 2000lbs of bombs and 10 HVARs is a recipe for destruction

P-38L. More damage in a single pass. It may be fun in FB, but I think WWII pilots hated to make more than one or two passes, no matter what they were flying.

Best ground attack plane....the bread and butter of the allied anti-tank and air support interdiction? The Hawker Typhoon and its successor the Hawker Tempest. One a fighter turned fighter bomber, the other a fighter bomber turned tactical fighter.

In the face of such greatness, I place the P-47 Thunderbolt in a very close second for this kind of role.

Pardon me if I am wrong but is that not suppost to be "Viva la Il2?" As for me I also go with the IL-2

Id have to go with the P-38.. the loadout is incredible..the speed is blazing... come in fast hit hard and get out....

After that for sheer ground pounding ability Id have to sday the IL2... those cluster bobmbs make my day....

Then the P-47..... Punch...Power..... toughness....
