These days I still have a very healthy preference for western allies, then IJN then other Axis, but will fly any side for online balance.

Although I've been reading about Japan's participation and absolutely appalling ethical conduct during WWII, I am really interested in carrier warfare, so that's why the IJN preference over other Axis powers.

I'm particularly curious to hear about those that choose the LW
If appalling ethical conduct in WWII would be a factor in choosing the faction, we would all fly bf 109E with swiss markings. But maybe you are not talking about the armys, but about the government?

I choose the axis because I am German and Swiss and beacause I prefere to have speed instead of tight turn capability. I also like the 20mm. When it comes to the Pacific, I choose F4 over zero any day

in COD, I preffer Luftwaffe because their planes looks soo bloody mean.

I never really liked Spitfire's girly looks.

Voted RAF, as I first started flying Hurries and Spits in COD.

Otherwise I don't have much preference, I'll fly both sides equally, Im starting now to fly the 109 a lot (being Swiss I like the E-3 a lot).
Next will be the 110, then Stuka and bombers.

What I like in COD is that I'm really enjoying learning each plane and taking some time to master it a bit before jumping to the next one. I still haven't dropped a single bomb in the game, so there's a lot I still have to do.

Back in the days of Their Finest Hour on the Amiga I loved to bomb ships in a Bf-110 as part of ErpGr 210, looking forward to do it in COD too

S!

Luftwaffe. Messerschmitts and Focke Wulfs just look like war machines and they had some advanced stuff in them for that time. Has nothing to do with ANY political or other things. Period.

Despite RAF having the edge in the poll nobody seems to admit choosing them? is there a stigma?
