    I like the Hawk 81. Its definitely a challenge to fly against the early model zeros and requires very careful energy management. The cockpit was extremely well done and the exterior is a big step up on the P-40 models already in the game. The fact that it was used by a group of American mercenaries flying under a foreign flag also adds a cool factor to the plane.

    The FM-2. The stubby sturdy little thing is like the Tonka toy of carrier ops.

    I am still exploring all of these fine planes...I will get back to you, ff

    Ofcourse - the first plane I flew was the the Wildcat....but the first one I landed on the Lexx with was a 'sair...just had to be.

    I have also hooked an early Zero...schnapped the gear off on that one..hehehe BANZAI!!!

    I like the Corsair, I like the KI-61 (or will ), and the Spitfire VIII I'm sure will be great once it gets a few things...like more 20mm cannon ammo and maybe some better markings

    Overall I find the F4F-4 to be a very nicely done ride. The cockpit looks to be done with almost the same quality as the J8A and it offers some good performance for a early-mid war bird.

    Second would be the P-40B/Cs - absolutely amazing.

    Third, Ki-43s. I don't think they really look that great and the cockpit could use a hell of a lot more polish, but they're a blast to fly.

    F4U Corsair.

    I loooove this plane. It's blue. It's fast but graceful. It's blue. And landing aboard ship is always an exhilirating experience. Oh, and did I mention? It's blue.

    Its detailed rendition in PF would make Pappy and his Black Sheep proud.

    Korolov, I agree: the P-40B's glass-jaw damage model is "absolutely amazing."
    I have confirmed this a dozen times now: 1 hit by anything, anywhere in the front of the AC and your engine is gone. Plus, you're lucky if they don't throw in a PK or total control loss to boot. Despite the gorgeous visual model of this aircraft, I regard it as virtually hors de combat
    due to it's (inexcusably) lame DM.
    I really hope Oleg takes a look at this, and soon.
