    See your from New Zealand:

    I read that the RNZAF(?) flew:

    Brewster F2A Buffalo Mk I
    Bristol Beaufighter Mk IIF, NF XII
    Commonwealth Aircraft CA 3 Wirraway
    Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk
    Hawker Hurricane
    Hawker Tempest Mk V
    Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib
    Supermarine Spitfire Mk II, Va, Vb, IX
    Vought F4U Corsair

    What do you fly now and what will you fly in PF?

    Just wondering because you dont seem to like allied aircraft.No flame just a friendly question M8.

    well youd have to find & fly with me to see that i dont have any preference

    i.e. i fly all planes in FB & i enjoy using just about all of them , especially pre-1943 planes , they give me the most fun

    ive made multiple coops for just about every single plane in FB

    what i dont like is specific plane/country fans

    like people who only fly blue or red , the kind who make a 6 versus 4 DF room 7 versus 4 just because they want to fly a certian plane

    that is especially pathetic

    Mustang fans seem to come across as the most biased especially (is it related to beating the Japanese in the Pacific during WW2 ?) , i digress

    people who flew one sides (Axis or Allied) also seem ignorant to the disadvantages of the planes they fly against

    its an interesting question that a player might have a prediliction to the planes that his country used during WW2

    i mean it amuses me

    a freind has a squadmate who is russian & he has recieved a lot of abuse at UBI/HL & at forums because hes in a LW squad

    & i game with a german guy who flys for the VVS in the VEF & he also has gotten abuse because of this

    im in a canadian squad that emphasis pratice in all planes & flys for LW in the VEF & Allied in the VWF

    are Combat Flight Simmers predisposed to predjudiced & argumentation ?

    the egotistical "im the best" attitude goes hand in hand with combat flight simming ?

    one thing im sure of is that . . . .

    the most boring people to play FB with are the ones who fill the chat bar up with arguing & abuse when most else are trying to game on

    I think its only natural for citizens to prefer their own countries planes, just as they root for their Olympic Teams. This natural choice can be mistaken as prejudice or attitude.
    If you are "simming" why would you not want to fly what your relatives/countrymen flew in WW2?

    I think you have more 'roleplayers' in IL2/FB than what most people would think.

    People that only fly certain side, or even more, fly only a certain plane i think are a little strange. Id have to agree to what you said Mr Sight.

    However, Different horses, different courses.

    -----------------------------
    English lesson 101:
    The word is 'Lose' not 'Loose'. e.g.
    That IL2 is gonna lose the fight against that 109.
    That IL2's wing looks loose, its gonna fall off.
    If i dive too vertically i will lose my wing. k thx.

    I don't dislike these folks, but it is extremely aggravating to see odds of 2:1 regularly...and the side with the most pilots (usually RED) will be filling the chat with things like "Where are all the Blue pilots?"

    COME ON!

    o.k., I'm done.
