I fear no plane.... only pilots.

12-01-2004, 06:46 AM
I fear any plane on the other side thats above me.

Cautious pilots in an advantage situation. Few, if any, mistakes to exploit.

I don't fear, but rather respect any aircraft piloted by a skilled pilot...except maybe a TB3. They're fairly easy pickings, but I'll only go after them if I think they're on their way "in". If they've already dropped their load, then they only offer a dead, smoking engine or worse.

After flying the Pacific for a bit, I gotta admit I`m fearing almost anything Zero! On the Eastern front I would relax into my natural fight against the Luftwaffe. I knew my plane and theirs... But now- - It`s just that I`m the one used to outturning the opponent, not him!

True, true http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

On a sidenote, I fear the Jug, if I see one above me.
Axis... Well, that would imply I fly Allied and I don;t. But if I see a FW online with a height advantage, there is going to be some rough time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Its the pilot.

I've laughed incredulously at I-16 pilots as they try and get me in my FW190 for instance...and yet once I was shot down brutally by an experienced I-16 pilot. Usually they are easy pickings but this one I could not beat.

I've been in fear of F4U's in my A6M when it becomes clear that they want a turn fight and I no longer fear them.

Its the pilot...the plane just tells me what the pilot has the potential to do. Not what he/she can actually do.

As for pilots...I fear/respect Billfish, Korolov, Ivan, Boelke, and MapleTiger. Those names spring to mind when it comes to being shot down, having the longest fights, or being saved by those people.

Yes, of course, it`s the pilot. Sure it wasn`t me you faced? I love taking on guys in the I16, they always get too cocky! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Surprisingly, my worst fear is a well flown I-153, especially the P version. The only hope is outrunning it, and while that's not too hard, getting in a tangle with one spells almost certain death.

The usual list of tail dancers... La7, 109K, Ki-84 and the 109Z. Those planes can turn the tables on you even if you have energy, speed and altitude because they defy gravity.

12-01-2004, 10:03 PM
As a spitfire pilot, my most feared plane would be the 190.

In the right hands these are the hardest to down, due to a greatly superiour roll rate, which if used right can make staying on their 6 at high speeds more difficult than most planes, and in some cases turn the tables on you in the blink of an eye. You really know when you are facing a 190 pilot that knows his plane rather than just picking something out of the list.

And when there is room for them to dive, my spit has no hope keeping up.

Dont get me started on what happens if you find them with an alt. advantage.

I have yet to be downed in a P-51.

Regardless of how good the pilot flying plane is, I get cautious when I'm up against La's, Spit's, Mustangs, Ki-84's, Yak's, I-185's, 109's and P-63's. After all, there's no telling how good the pilot flying the plane is just by looking at it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Worst of them all, La-7.

12-02-2004, 01:18 PM
i haven't read any post other that the first, but for me planes don't scare me, just the pilots inside.

I've taken down almost every plane in the game(on-line) in a J8A including Go229/Me262/ki-84s/spit9/yak3p/p51d and whole bunch more. so it really is all about the pilot..a bad pilot will make any plane a flying death trap.

I can vouch for taht Korb. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

only thing u have to fear is... fear itself! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but i'd agree with those who say its the pilot. even an early I-16 can be deadly at the hands of the right pilot.
