There have been a bunch of recent posts on this. I wanted to generalize, and, true to my form, make a poll out of it. I also imagine there might be some discussion on this...

It has to be the 25lbs boost as it has the best performance.

However its rarely used on maps on historical 'miniwar' maps, so from the 1943-44 Spits, I would take the ingame MkVIII. It looks cool and flies just like the MIX.

The Spitfire IXc/IXe is one of the best modelled planes in the game, its numbers match the real plane almost perfectly. the only questionable thing is the overheat, but thats strange on most planes. It only allows 100% throttle and many of the other planes never overeheat if you stick at 100%.

If the 25lbs boost is used on historical maps, it should be up against Me262's,Me109K4's and Doras as the numbers built are comparable. It can be used as a stand in for the MkXIV.

I voted MkVIII.

Spit IX, clipped, with .50s instead of the .303s, the 25 pounder is a rocket but I reckon the clipping and the .50s more than make up for the reduced boost.

Now, if I was just out trying to pick up chicks, it'd be the Mk VIII.

I would betray Kaiser and Fatherland for a Griffon powered Spitfire with "tear-drop" canopy in game, but it is not to come.

Well, be happy, otherwise you'd have a rather unfortunate meeting with a firing squad http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

The hottest WWII Spit is the redoubtable Mk XIV---which I have to resort to FS9 to fly. Grrr.
