I think the scale of 10 is too little to grade a pilot.

I`d give myself 7 online but some of the guys that I`d give 10 are lighting years before me.

I am a ground pounder so Dogfighting is totally not my cup of tea as you westener's put it. I rate myself at 6 since i usually don't get Air to Air kills but Air to tanks, boats , ships, etc kills.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

They are BOTH cold blooded assassins!!


Me, I do okay...I could use better accuracy, but my defensive skills are pretty good. (Unfortunately due to all the practice I've had in that regard.)


p.s. Some days...I follow Slammin' around like a dang Remora... although he regularly finishes his meals, one CAN get fat simply from his table scraps! COOOOLD blooded assassin........

Sometimes (like 5% of the time) I'm in the zone where I'm not even thinking about the controls, my deflection shots can't miss- 5% I absolutely suck and can barely seem to land a single shot. the other 90% of the time I'm somewhere in between...

And RGR that on Slammin and Terrible- CBK is an accurate description...

Not Bad. Maybe a 7.5 overall. Depending on my mount. When I fly the G.50, I find I am getting kills w/o loss. But when I fly the bf-109, I get my butt kicked. Different tactics for different planes.

Haven't flown much since AEP release other than testing things out offline. Got so frustrated with weapon/DMing stuff that I have taken a break until patch is released (need dedicated server badly also). Flew for the second time online last night in about a month and it was ugly (relatively speaking http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif), so if you see me online go easy on me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I've even resorted to flying the 109 at times (*GASP*) as bounces have become ineffective, but this will be fixed after patch.

Hey, I've been doing this for a long, long time....and I still suck at it! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Actually I find flying offline to be much more difficult since my preferred tactics pretty much don't apply. And if you fly the way AI will sometimes dictate, you develope bad habits for online. At least that's how it goes for me. But either way, I stink too much to warrant a rating.

9.5 in ground pounding, 8.0 in antiship, 6.5 in air to air

My current VEF2 stats are around 37 ground kills per KIA/MIA and 3.5 air kills per KIA/MIA. Most of my losses are from AAA, not enemy fighters. In VEF2 I loose 3 planes to ground fire for every time an enemy plane gets me.

When he was about 50, Jimmy Doolittle gave up flying airplanes for a living. He was arguably the best pilot of his time.

"When I no longer feel I can get in and fly anywhere, anytime, in any conditions, it's time to quit," he wrote. Every time I think about that, I want to ask, "With someone shooting at you...or not?"

I try to fly in every (virtual) condition, and seldom bend the bird I'm in. But add enemy fighters and AAA...and it's 50-50 at best, and that's on a good day.
