Been playing some 4.09 QMB matches to bring my skills back up to where they were (or try anyways http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif). Been having fun fighting some of the new aircraft that are AI only at the moment. I'm really impressed with the G.55... I've been flying Mustangs against them and they are a hard opponent.

They seem fast, responsive, good roll rate, and I was surprised by the heavy firepower (3x20mm cannons and 2 of those Italian machine guns but we won't mention those). They look great too!

I hope we can properly fly them some day but I have to say I was impressed with how good it was in the air. I've done a little reading and it sounds like an impressive fighter that just never had time to really have an impact.

Wellll, you can fly the G55 already... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But yes, an official version would be very nice.

I've flown it with the mods and it is a sweet ride indeed (cockpit is same as C.205 though). From what I've read the G.55 wasn't limited by time so much as production costs. I can't recall exactly, but you could build two or three 109s for the same price and hours of labor.

I tried the late P-47 against them and found them to be meat on the table. Now if they were humans online and not AI then I might have found some different result.

After some quick tests I found that the G.55 is exceptionally 'soft' in terms of damage model. It is much weaker than an Mc.205, and about as fragile as a 109. It is a great performer though, but it was too rare to do anything, I think.

The couple times I have flown against AI Re.2000's and G.55's I found them to be very tough.
