View Full Version : Favourite aircraft matchup

Just wondering what everyones favourite online or offline plane match up is.

Historical or otherwise it doesn't matter, just tell me what you like.

Personally i like putting myself and 4 veteran P-47D's up against 12 Ace Doras at 75000m on the Crimea map. Great fun as both planes can take and dish out crate loads of ammo and have similar turning radii so B'n'Z and T'n'B madness can ensue.

Post plane vs plane, numbers, alt, map and loadouts please.

Also like Hurri I vs P-75s and Morko Morraines. Early war c r a ptitude

Some of my most memorable online fights have been P40E/M105 vs 109F4. Both have certain relative advantages and disadvantages but overall quite an even matchup that can lead to a heck of a fight given pilots of relatively equal ability and experience with their machines.

I like the FW190-A5 vs. everything... (not always the best matchup, but I battle them all anyway!).. I LOVE the new US planes in PF... the corsair is pretty much like the P47, and the rest make easy fun targets!

Guys do you ever tried 1 (You) Bf109G6( LATE and A/S also) versus 4 ACE P-47D27's on 5000m?

I find it to be the most challenging of all QMB fights. Sounds stupid I know, but I have never had so hard fight. I usually choose Mk108 nose cannon, but due to small amount of ammunition for that monster, you have to be good at 'one shot kill'. Try it folks, guaranteed good fight... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Lately I've been practicing gunnery with a simple FMB mission I made. I've got a Mistel going into an "attack" dive on a costal city a few seconds after the mission starts. The player starts parallel and slightly ahead of the Mistel, requiring a hard turn to get behind it quickly. The challenge is in hitting the Mistel before it gets to the city, but if you get too hot with the firepower, it takes you out too.

My favorite matchup is like this:

Put me in a hard hitting aircraft, pref. a FW 190 and put a lot of those T'n'B-style aircraft in front of me. Have them chase my teamate and never check their six.
