Has to be the FW-190

For pure, chip-on-the-shoulder, what-are-you-lookin-at-chump, say-it-to-my-face type of bravado, the 190 would be the plane of choice.

That's not entirely a compliment or a put-down, it's just the way it seems to be.

You guys have a simplistic understanding of Macho. It's okay, you don't know any better.
The I-16,J8 and brewster are examples of truely macho planes. The P47 is almost effeminate.

As modeled in IL-2, the He-162 is quite uber. You need no balls to fly it (thought I do enjoy doing so).

P-47D-10.

Who needs a forward view? This is a BEAST! 2800HP, 8x50cal guns, amazing power, ridiculously fast, great at altitude, if IL-2 were D&D it would have a constitution of around 43.

This is also a plane that takes a real man to fly. Any kid can hop in a La-7 (though many non-kids also fly it) and zoom around. The P-47 require patience, bravery, and manhood. I mean, you are hopping in a plane that you can hardly see out of, that doesn't turn or climb well, and once you get bounced by a high energy fighter its fighting for your life all or nothing time.


For a plane (that fits the year and type set (i.e. J8A doesn't qualify, storch doens't qualify), the P-47 is probably the plane that you are least likely to get a kill in, but the one that gives you the most satisfaction doing it.

I love the jug.

no, the p-38 is a candidate for ladies' plane.

LilHorse

"Quien es mas macho?"

After some concideration I'd have to agree with the majority here. The P-47. Big, fast, mean (I don't give a crap what anybody says, 8 fifty cals will rip you to shreds) and tough. And I'm a 109 driver (although the Jug is my fave plane of WWII). Of course I'd have to say the Stuka and IL-2 are close runner ups. But the Jug can fight up high and pound the ground like nobodys business.

GreyBeast
03-26-2004, 09:48 AM
if planes were insects:

the bf-109 would be a mosquito
the il-2 and ju-87 would be flies
the fw-190 would be a bee

and...

the p-47 would be an african killer bee!!!

noticed I haven´t used the word "macho" yet, but considering that´s what this poll is about, I´d have to nominate the P-47 as the "macho" plane.

Why?

Just fly the P-47 in formation next to any of the other mentioned planes and then compare sizes. Plus, up to 2.800HP sure makes those knees tremble, ladies.

P.S.: I´m not even a P-47 fan, my favorite is the P-39, it´s not "macho" but it has "killer wasp" qualities. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Bf-109 is for n00bs,
Il-2 is suicide, not for heroic men,
Ju87 is tough but too weak armement

so there's challange between 190 and 47...

... hmmmm ...

It's a hard decision but I think i'll tend to 190. It looks ways better, has cannons, better power-weight ratio and nicer 'over-all feeling'. I don't like 47 too much but in this category it's VERY close to 190.
