What is your favorite WW2 aircraft...

Recommended Posts

A toss up for between the P-47 and P-51. I've been a fan of both of them since 1950.

 

Cripes! How old is Buzz?

It has to be the P-51D for me. It avoided sprouting all the bumps and warts so many WWII era fighters did during their development. A close second would be the Mc.202. I always imagine how much prettier it would've been with a P-51 style radiator housing under its belly instead of the square mess it was stuck with.

What a ridiculously difficult question... but I have always thought this was a beautiful plane, no matter how slow it may have been...

I love all Russian planes, From I-16 through Lagg's and La's to IL-2 (which is pretty nice)

But favourite will be probably Mig-3.

Gotta be the Spit for me (for ww2) but like some others, I like the oddities and unusual planes out there.

 

Just like me, they're not sexy but cool :)

Ju-88 without the bath-tub, like the G-6 fighter:

No contest, Brewster Buffalo wins hands down, squat, fat, ugly but at the same time somewhat cute.

There are far too many aesthetically pleasing WW2 aircraft to pick a single winner, but I will nominate one that doesn't seem to have been discussed so far: the Pe-2. I'd rank it up there with the Mosquito and P-38 as one of the best-looking twins. No photo, as we all know what it looks like,,,

In love with the jug:

 

Aren't we all in love with some jugs. I especially like the bubble canopy variant.

I am a bit soft about powerful twin engined CAS aircraft like the A-26... Not that much used in WWII but could be used in later expansions all the way to Vietnam :)

Hmm, I'm starting to think of the C47 now...

 

 

 

Nah,... still B17G,... but,... the C47 is such a nice looking thing.

 

Considering how closely in time both the DC-3 and Ju-52 were designed and first flown, its obvious how much more modern the DC-3 looks in comparison. They look to be from different eras. Then again, maybe they were based on how fast aviation technology advanced in the 1930s.

Brewster Buffalo, 109 G,K, Yak3, And LA-5. Many more also. 190 D-9 the most vicious looking bird, which i really would like to fly in this sim some day.

Don't know why, but I have always loved the looks of the Do17.

There are too many good choices to say it's my favorite, but I've always been partial to the P 51B. I like the razorback.
