The Primate can have his Pony... everyone and his dog knows, Spitfire won the war.
The Spitfire climbed like Saturn V and could outturn a push bike.

Truly awsome. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Spitfire didn't have the range to win the war.if it wasn't for the 51 escorting the B-17's to the heart of germany to bomb the factories that made the german war machine the war would still be going on.

Yes, Spitfires were OK for slowing the Luftwaffe down. It took American planes to push them back. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

At the risk of being 'that guy' the Red Army would've kicked in the factory gates long, long ago. In 1940 Churchill said if Hitler did not bring Britain to its knees he would turn east. And if he turned east he would fail. Hitler failed to bring Britain to her knees, turned east and the rest was just a matter of time. The Germans lost the strategic initiative in the east at Kursk in the summer of 1943, you could even argue they lost it with the envelopment of Stalingrad six months earlier. They weren't doing tremedously well in North Africa either. Thus began the long march on Berlin, and the war's inevitable conclusion. I'm sure someone like Kurfurst'll be along soon enough to educate you on German aircraft production levels during the war.

Operational Radius: Stone's throw



There's a reason why the Mustang is simply fantastic. It took the fight to the heart of the enemy.

spitfire defending britain, and malta and elsewhere, without spit, there may never have been p51, and without british help, american aircraft would be worse http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

p51 entirely different plane, it would have been a average interceptor, but made a excellent long range fighter.

RAF had both http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

spitfire, and mossie are greater than the sum of their parts. the merlin engine was the sound of freedom to the british, and those in occupied territories, the spitfire was ledgend, the mossie was becoming one http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
resistance must have loved mossie... gestapo must have hated it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
