Would you believe that I've had more kills in simulator with the Bf-110 C-4 (forward guns only) than any other fighter?? It is a damned sight easier to quickly swith to the gunner to spot the height and direction of an enemy than checking the map.
It is next to unrecoverable from a spin though and a pretty much screwed if anyone manages to latch on from behind.
I've recently started flying the Bf-109 G-10, which seems to be impossible to losse control of or spin in simulator, turns nice and smoothly and doesn't shake around when firing..... shame that they did the 20mm. armed version rather than the 30mm. armed version.
I'm not to sure about it in arcade mode though. It is faster than the Spitfire IX and can just turn inside it. It definately out performs the G-2, G-6 and K-4 as it is lighter and faster. Aiming with just nose guns that don't have a fast rate of fire (lots of gaps between the tracers) takes some practice as I'm so used to wing guns.
In simulator mode though, the G-10 is perfect.
I guess all the Luftwaffe fans will go for the Fw-190s when the patch is issed.
