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.

03-10-2004, 11:37 AM
Favorite dogfight planes

1) Fw-190A9 (or latest A series if in pre-1944 environment)

03-10-2004, 02:00 PM
1) P-47 D-10 (it's so fast in a dive that even jets are scared)
2) P.11 (very forgiving, turns on dime, plus you feel real good when you shoot someone down that didn't take it seriously)
3) Either Zero (great close in dogfighters)
4) P-51 NA (great all round figher)
5) P-40M (turns good, guns are deadly)

03-10-2004, 02:33 PM
1: FW190D9
2: TA152-H1
3: P38L
4: FW190A5
5: Whatever I'm forced to fly because of the teams and/or mission the server is hosting.

Currently I fly the TA152 exclusively, I am really trying to learn the plane as well as I know the Dora, but my list is based on my favorites of all time and what I am most likely to pick given somewhat limited choices. Safe to say that in a couple weeks or month my number 1 pick will be either the Dora or the TA.


03-10-2004, 02:44 PM
1. Ju-87
2. Tb-3
3. He-111

OK, here are mine, based on the fact that I am a TnB pilot.

1. TempestV(not yet available) EXCELLENT in both TnB and BnZ. Cannons tear you up and it has PLENTY!
2. P-40 E Closest plane I've found to the Tempest, but lacks in power.
3. A6M2 BEAUTIFUL! Lacks a bit in power and in roll rate, but once you hit combat flaps... DEADLY!
4. Ta-152H-1 Good in power, excellent roll rate, lacks a little for TnB but still effective.
5. P-39(any varient) With it's great for a TnB situation and good power, and with it's extra ammo and strong cannons I find it VERY effective when I have to bring down a bomber.

It's hard to rate such good planes in only five choices. I find a lot that qualify in the top five and struggled to chose the ones I did, but you can't forget the ones I didn't mention:
1. Bf-109G-2 (or any 109) The G-2 has a good supply of ammo and any 109, when in a tight spot can out turn about anything at slow speeds WITHOUT falling out of the sky. Slow down, extend full flaps and add WEP and flop around like a fish out of water and see if ANYTHING out there can follow, try it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
2. B-239 This plane is amazing, compact and AGILE beyond belief. Very hard target to hit and sturdy when firing guns.
3. P-38 What can I say, fast, great in turns, strong guns, and LOVE THOSE ROCKETS. I've used them on ground targets and yes, effectivly on planes in flight!
4. Bf-110 This plane is a good match for the P-38. Fast and great guns. It may be out turned by the P-38, but the rear gunner gives it extra protection and a bit of an edge.
5. P-51B or C This is a good long range fighter. It's got power and can turn in a dogfight MUCH better than the D varient. It can carry good ordinance. When I need to do away with a BnZ'ing 190, I get in the P-51.

Thanks for letting me babble about my favorite planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

1. La7 - So far, it still seems to do it all with the most-balanced attributes of any plane in the game. Although V2.0 has given the La7 less rudder effect and slightly reduced speed and acceleration, it's still the plane I favor most.

2. V2.0 Ki-84-1c is a wicked bad ride now. Much improved speed on the deck and at low altitude and that has only added to its already interesting climb from pre V2.0. Those 30mms are devastatingly accurate and powerful. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

3. P39-Q1 is a fun plane with good firepower. I usually B and Z with it, but it turns pretty good even eith those .50 cal pods.

4. Spitfire Mk Vb LF CW is what I consider the teaser for the much anticipated Mk IXs and Mk XIVs that are coming. The Mk V is too slow and its hard to shoot someone down when they don't stop to turn with ya, but it's still effective against most T and Bers.

5. Bf109-G2/F4s are the LW's Yaks. They can hold a tight turning circle for just about 3+ loops with a Yak 3 and only through making the 109 miss the shot and overshoot with slow speed maneuvering, does the Yak have a chance to out turn most 109-G2s, without truly working for it.

The coming patch shall bring near 10 new flyables. The above is subject to change upon that release.
