    Alright, now that the new patch is out and now that we have yet another 190 to play around with, what's the new order of supremacy in this family? Disregard firepower -- they're all pretty damn good in this field. It's based on performance only.

    Is it...

    D9/152
    A5 Boost
    A6
    A4
    A9

    What do you guys think? I'm mostly interested in where the new boosted A5 fits in. Is it better to take this than the A6? Thanks!

    A-5 Boost is by far my favorite. We finally have an Anton that fits with the Wuger's reputation as a truly outstanding energy fighter. The A5 was great before but now its probably the most effective plane in the 43-44 plane set.

    Now if only we could have a 1.65 Ata with 4 Mausers. Or at least option to lose the MG FF without getting the bomb rack.

    Now that I speak of it, I heven't checked yet .

    Pure performance is still Dora then A5 new and A9 or a4depends on how you fly.

    A5 new is not THAT impressive when you discover it overheats VERY fast. But I think it is realistic now.

    But I really donâ´t understand why D9 keeps E so much better than other FW. Long nose should not change this behavior. The whing are simple A8 wings without guns.

    As I said, it all depends on how you fly. I would take A4 any day befora a plain A5 or A6 or A8.

    You're right, but I ranked them just in terms of pure performance (speed, acceleration and climb rate).
    I'll take an A6 any day! (now maybe an A5 boost! )

    Boosted A5 doesn't feel any different to me at all. It can't maintain 1.65 in anything other than a straight line, overheats very quickly, and just isn't all that fast. Feels just like a regular A5, 'cept with faster overheat. (I've flown Antons more than anything else in the last several months)

    I'd like to see some numbers on the Laughin' (La5FN for the newer members). That thing is still a ridiculous untouchable joke of a UFO. Some things just never change (been like that since IL2).

    They are all incredible, with the exception of 2 A/C -

    190 A4 w/Derated engine
    190 A9 nothing more than a heavy A8.
