I used to fly soley German. No particular reason other than they were the ones I was most familiar with. Built the models read a few books etc. etc.

Lately I've been messing with the LA 5, and find it quite enjoyable. Tempest is another one I like recently, but I can't seem to get everything out of it I need to. I find myself allowing myself to get to close to the 'stall envelope' and losing all I gained by carefully flying it. I get impatient sometimes.

Curiosity kills the cat........ Impatience kills the pilot.

I've fallen back in love with the Il-2.

Favourite is the 1941 3 serise with the 23mm YVa cannon.

Other faves are the Hurricane IIc (just wish it had bombload-outs) and the Mosquito.

Always has been the IL-2, all models.
My other faves are the P-38, P-40 (especially B/C and Hawk 81's), Mossie, Beaufighter and just recently the Pe-2/3.
But if I could only fly just one it would be the Sturmovik.

Now when BoB comes out, give me a Mk.I Spit and point me south!

Slo, they're not known in "codenames" like the US labelled any hostile fighter, but the subversions were labelled in the german phonetical alphabet:

A- Anton ---- used for those planes that had were the subversion "A"
B- Berta
C- C√¬§sar
D- Dora
E- Emil
F- Friedrich
G- Gustav
.
.
.

Example:

An F-15A would have been called "Anton", while the -15B would have been called "Berta", etc.

But I have to tell you, when I feel nostalgic and look back on my entire affair with the Il2 series, I take the Ilyushin-2 ground attack plane for a ride.

Once in a while I go in with it into the thick of the actions, blow up tanks, bomb columns, beat the hell out of Ju-88s, and catch a few reckless fighters with the rear gun.

It was a sh1t plane in real life, but with the luxury of refly button, it rocks big time.

My favourite and most frequent (offline) plane is the Beaufighter Mk21. Offline the Corsairs (normally -1D/IV since they carry more ordnance than -1As) and A-20G also see a fair bit of time. Online lately, I've flown F6Fs in the ground attack role quite frequently. Hurricane IIBs are my normal ride for offline air-to-air "practice".

For ground pounding, I'll take a P38 or a Tempest.

Selective targeting.......I focus on one point of the plane. Might be a single engine, or the elevator, sometimes the cockpit....But I don't waste rounds by spraying it down.

Often I can take out a couple that method and often get 2 others to drop their loadouts (which is really the important part)...After that I then do what any good Ki-61 home defense pilot would do....

TAIATARI!!!!!

taking out the stubborn one that wouldn't drop his bombs.....bailing out as well often to take up another plane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It's the same with my favorite, the Mig-3. Pick a spot and use short bursts. You'll get the job done. Plus it's a delight to fly.

I working on using the Il-2 as a fighter. Works fabulous in furballs (or in 2 vs. 2, with a normal fighter wingman) - I get 3-4 kills every time.
Has 1 min firing time of 23mm ammo - you just point ahead of a bogey up to 700m away and let rip.

Actually its pretty good in 1 vs. 1 as well, especially if the other pilot is experienced. They usually try to boom and zoom me, which gives me ample time to always point the guns in their direction between zoom cicles.
(As long as the fight starts above 600m height for me, further down there's no room for maneuver)
Turn fights also work quite well, above 600m.

It rock, this thing!
