At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

Russia - Polikarpov I-16
Like many other aircraft throughout history this aircraft in the hands of an ace proved a handful for it's opponents.

USA - Hellcat F6-F5 (the cannon equipped version)
This aircraft (in all it's different types) is very underrated IMHO.Probably the greatest aircraft in terms of blending agility,firepower and durability.Many aircraft posess 1 or 2 of these attributes but only a handful can boast all 3.

UK - Spitfire Mk IX c or e
The Spitfire (in it's Merlin forms at least) is probably the most beautiful aircraft ever to fly.Coupled with the fantastic Merlin engine which is probably the best sounding engine ever makes this a thoroughbred amongst fighters. Yes yes,I know it has the range of an asthmatic ant carrying heavy shopping,but in a 1 on 1 dogfight against a 109 or 190 would you really want to be in anything else? Oh but why the Mk IX and not many peoples' favourite the Mk XIV? Well,Air Vice Marshall 'Johnnie' Johnson stated quite categorically that the Mk IX was the best Spitfire produced.His opinion of the Mk XIV was "it was both fast and powerful but it's not a Spitfire anymore".
If it's good enough for 'Johnnie' Johnson,then it's good enough for me.

Germany - Fieseler Fi-156 Storch
If you've ever seen 1 fly in real life,you'll know why.If not,then you should do so.Absolutely fantastic and breath taking to watch.

Japan - Kawasaki Ki-100 Hien
This very late Japanese aircraft was the equal of the Mustang in the last 6 months of the War.Usually pilot skills or numbers determined the outcome of dogfights between the 2.The scary thing about the Ki-100 is that it can trace it roots back to both the Bf-109 and Fw-190.Just pips the Zero A6M3 as my favourite.

40 was 109e and spit1 match


41 190a1 was perhaps the best plane,but her firepower was not so strong

same time 109f spit5 was more match 41

think a6m for 42 is very good plane

very good accelerate,turn and climb but bad toughness,but with good pilots is she 42 server certain danger opponent

42 spit9 and a4,g2 was match

p39n-1 was not so great as in game,they have remove outergun later,

because no chance vertical againt germans plane,p39 had weak climb and very bad accelerate

not good for vertical maneuver

you remove not weapons when you have better plane,they had problems against g2

too russia have p39 not count as match against g2


43 is p47 and a5 match,

but la-5fn seem better especially low alt and her 2 20mm more as enough firepower

bud believe la-5fn in game is 44 la-5fn,
climb 4,7min to 5000m is character for 44 la-5fn

44 came some good bird that was match

spit14,dora,la-7,109 with mw50 but very late

jg52 has g14 use november

p51 is too top plane, but dont like her climb and accelerate

real was p51d very good fighter, but game with weak climb and accelerate, i dont know

no good survive chance, when la-7 or k4 with mk108 she surprice and she has not more energie

with 109 accerlate and climb can i go away match better by trouble

doghfight 1vs1

need p51 you only wait until 109 has not fuel

with same speed as g10 is it no problem get distance for p51

For me:

*USA - F6F Hellcat, any version (P-47 Thunderbolt, any version, close second)

*Britain - Mosquito FBVI (Spitfire XIV close second)

*Germany - Fw 190A-5 (Bf 109F-4 close second)

*Soviet Union - Yak 3 (Pe-2 close second)

*Italy - Macchi C-202/205 (Fiat C.R.42 close second - yeah, I KNOW it's a biplane!)

*Japan - Zero A6M5 (N1K2 Shiden close second)

Some for how good they were, some for looks, some for character, some I'm not sure - I just like 'em.
