What is your favourite plane

Recommended Posts

My favourites rotate and constantly change because there are too many to choose from.

 

I regularly ask Jason and the devs to completely delete all but 2 aircraft for each side.

 

I find it frustrating and extremely stressful with so many to choose from. Unfortunately my request has fallen on deaf ears to date.

If I could add the modifier “for what,” my list would be at least 5-10.

But when picking just one, it’s the Spitfire for me.

 

I’ve been impressed by how consistently my IL-2 and scale-RC spitfire experience aligns with historical accounts of its handling, tendencies, etc.

 

Especially the “Lady in the air, b- - - -  on the ground” bit.

I'd either have to say the IL-2 or Hs-129 depending on what side I'm flying.

Definitely the IL-2 overall though, I'm pretty much unstoppable in the 1943 version.

Axis fighter: Focke-Wulf Fw 190

Axis bomber: Junkers Ju 88

Allied fighter: Supermarine Type 300 "Spitfire"

Allied bomber: None apply

109 K-4 or G-14 for meteoric climb-rate surpassing even modern military trainer jets like L-39

HS-129 for superior guns: you can destroy an entire train or explode two tanks with a single trigger pull

190 with 6 20mm for unique ability to tangle with 75mm AAA and survive

Meteors don't actually climb!

Right now it's the P-47. Love the firepower of its 8 .50s. I also find myself just staring at it in it's NMF. So life like.

No Hurricane in Great Battles, which is my all time fave aircraft.

 

So it has to be the P51D, very closely followed by the P47D.

Most fun in career was in the P39, great little plane that can do everything.

I do love the f4, but due to the usual online balance issues I play Red 99% of the time online. A20's for strike missions, Spit's for tea & medals. And the VB is an amazing instructor in the fine art of trigger control....

Hard for me to pick between the twin engined twin verticle stabalizer aircraft pe2 and bf110, both are so versatile

It changes all the time for me, but all in all, independently of contemporary aircraft and performance I will have to say the MiG-3. Beautiful long nose, low canopy, fun to fly. It sure looks faster than it is😁

Fw 190 by tradition.

The A-20, Peshka and Ju 88 are duckton of fun, too.

 

It's really hard to put a finger on it. There are many airplanes that are very interesting and enjoyable to fly. I was looking forward to flying the P-47 and I wasn't disappointed.

At this point I'm looking forward to flying the Dora (naturally...), the P-51, the Tempest and the P-38.

 

In that order, but not far in between.

FW 190A3 if I have to chose LW, its perfection is out of any question.

 

If I have to chose a plane of red faction, please give me the P-40. Dont ask me why, but I find it a so pleasant plane to fly and so rewarding too when I manage to shot down an enemy plane. Plus its armament its great

Favorite a/c in IL2? Good question, glad you asked.

For the last 6 months or so to me it is the A-20 hands down. Some say, she is the best fighter in the game. :lol:

I love her for being so smoothly to fly, just a dream... Especially in the "Fly-through-a-hangar!"-challenge.

So, is the A-20 the most fun you can have with your pants on? Definitely close!

Especially the rocket powered version, look!

And if you´re not convinced yet, give this guy a try...:lol:

Or that one. I think it is called OP-2 :lol:

There is really so much to choose from in this sim.

Have fun, do rediculous stuff and post hilarious pictures!

In general, looking at all WWII, the P-47 would be my love.

 

However, in-game the A20 might be even more fun. I love everything about it (except the tiny magazines for defensive guns the soviets used).

 

I look forward to a potential flyable B25.

 Lovely to look at 

Beautiful flight characteristics

 Very good visibility 

Fire power with cannons more than adequate

Stable gun platform

And if only devs would include this skin for LaGG-3 as official so it can be used on servers that have locked costum skins it would be perfect fit for BoBp as P-51C , it looks just to good :)

Toss up between the Bf 110 and the Fw 190... I prefer the 110 in Cliffs because it's more competitive against RAF but still enjoy it very much in BoX for groundpounding. The 190 though has to be my favourite single-engine, for glorious speed and armament :pilot:

You sacrifice a little bit of performance but if you're expecting to go against anything with two engines loading up with four 12.7mms makes you pretty deadly

Does the job! I usually take a bit less fuel, and stronger guns.
