There have been numerous of such threads but not lately http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . So I'm interested in your opinion... only families of fighters are listed, because for listing specific types it would take half page of listing.

It is interesting also because we have influx of new players lately and I believe their votes will be different than votes of those who are regular here.

Vote on whatever basis you want... you may vote for best looking piston for all I'm concerned, but it would be appropriate to vote for a fighter that you think is best, another words in which you can do best results.

They are all fighters of same era, contemporary fighters so it all boils down to personal preference.

My vote goes to...
- IL2 - FW-190(D)/Tempest it's tied really
- IRL - P-51 (I'd vote for 51 in IL2 too if only someone would be kind enough to put at least 2 X 20mm on it).

Hey DKoor- interesting idea for a poll http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I went with
IL-2: BF-109 (G in particular)

IRL: P-51 (D) because it won teh war http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well those are my prefs anyway. Will be checking back on this to see how it progresses.

Cheers

109's up to G2 then 190's there on. P-51's are great aircraft but a bit much over rated. IRL I would take a Jug over a p-51. P-47's shot down far more Luftwaffe birds than the stang.

In real life: P51 - pretty fast, multi purpose (able to strafe anything but tanks, carries rockets and big bombs), very fast, very good range, good cockpit visibility and high-speed maneuverability, easy to learn(to fly)... And quick & cheap to purchase! MK3 owns everything not jet-propelled.

In game? Same... except for the 2nd last. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I voted for the Tempest.

I voted 109 in-game primarily because of it's acceleration/deceleration ability (really helps covering up my mistakes!)

For RL I had to go with P-47. I like high odds for making it home!

I think we got some fishy results there;

In IL2 Bf-109's are getting more votes than Spitfires, P-51 & Tempest... quite unbelievable http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif ...

IL2: No pick, way too many are over or under modeled. Some to the point that I refuse to fly them as I would feel "unclean" doing so.

IRL: Corsair without a doubt. Plenty of speed, armament and manouverability for air-to-air operations. Had a big payload, and could carry a wide range of weapons for air-to-ground ops. Capable of absorbing a lot of punishment, and still get the pilot back home in one piece. And, unlike the '47 or '51, it could do all of that from a carrier as well as from land.

The early Bf109's quite incredible planes. Noone said it was all about late war birds. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am really starting to believe that the Bf109F4 in late 1941 is all conquering in the hands of a good pilot.

In-game, it's the Lavochkin La-7, the dive whiners can go to H, actually they can dive away scared sh1tless in their super diving planes as soon as they see me in my "poor" La7 that can dive

You know, there was/is a Berlin map on UKded servers which had Me262/109K4/Fw190D9 vs La7/Yak3/Yak9u etc and I would say, from ym experience on that map, that the Fw190D9 was easily a match for the La7.

Whether its a result of good teamwork by the Blues, I am not sure, but I have played that map many, many times on the Blue side and never felt overwhelmed by the La7's. I felt it was quite equal.

Maybe 1 vs 1 would be a different story, however...

I have played that map a lot as well, and agree with you completely. Yak-9U was far, far deadlier on that map.

Surprisingly the P47 seems to be getting more votes than P51 both in game and in real life! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

How about a "best planes in air combat role" poll?

IL2 I voted Lavochkin, it's an absolutely beautiful plane outside and in that's brought me through more than any other plane. I can't believe it got 0%! Don't you people have any fond memories of your n00b days in that thing? I still fly it all the time after owning the game since bloody 2003.

IRL I voted P-51 because since I was 9 I've been in LOVE with that plane. I used to imagine flying thousands of feet above the ground shooting down Gerries and dodging bullets. + It simply looks awesome. #1 romantic plane in the game, no doubt about it.

I think good teamwork is a key to keeping the La-7s off your six as a dora.

IRL .. I would opt for the Sea Fury. A carrier capable Tempest on Steroids .. missed the war by a few months and used operationally by FAA until the mid 50's they often feature in the winning places at Reno.
