Default To all bf-109 fans like me: which one is best?

I always fly the G-6 (Yet to unlock the G10 or K-4),but sometimes I see people still flying E's and F's. I know darn well some of these people have unlocked the others, but choose not to fly them.

Is there a reason for this? Which model do you guys use/do best with?

FYI: I play on realistic 99% of the time.

I'd say I've had my best rounds on realistic with the E-3 and G-6.

I think the E-3 is a decent dogfighter. I like the F-4 for dogfighting as well, but I'm not exactly a crack shot, so the extra cannon on the E-3 helps. The G-6 is just a beast if you can get a nice tracking shot (sometimes a snapshot will do just as well) but I don't think it handles as well as either the E-3 or F-4.

Now, I played a couple rounds of simulator with the E and F and did fairly well with both, but got more kills with the E.

Just my take.

I use the G-6 as well, but I haven't tried the E or F series enough to see any advantages they would have over the Gustav.

I think the game has a typo with the G-6 armament, it says "2 machine guns and 3 30 mm cannons" when I think the actual armament is 4 machine guns and one 30 mm cannon.

I take the G6 90% of the time. I do like to fly the G2 also (seems a little less heavy then the G6).
The G6 is just the bomb, fast, weapons shred enemys in seconds, just feels a bit heavy in turn fights, but good climb rate and speed usually help to stay on top in a dogfight.
Can´t wait to get the K4 (but that will still take me a while)

I use the G-6 for now, I can't aim very well with the center guns of the F-4, even when I'm right ontop of them. Once we have German cockpits, I'll probably be in the F-4. Fast and nimble. I've unlocked the 109K but I'm not a fan. Feels sluggish, even for a 109.

F-4 for dealing with fighters, K-4 for bomber busting. Unless a B-17 appears in which case Me-262.

When I'm not bombing myself, that is.

Well I found that the G6 is a heavy fat big pig EDIT with big balls though

Don't now really well the others, I will test them in free flight (especially the F4)

well ive been using the g6 but allways seem to lose out in a turning battle see my thread what am i doing wrong the k4 is even more of a flying brick when it comes to turning etc you have to really keep an eye on your speed
all i can say is stay FAST and get really close before you let rip with the guns becuse at close range they will eat any other plane in seconds

i think they are best suited to boom n zoom tactics so if you good at boom and zoom (i aint lol) then these are ideal planes to use

ive just started using la7 yak 3 and they seem to be a lot more niffty

used to fly the G6 until I got served a large helping of whoop ass with a side order of lead by a certain member of this forum...

Since then have had great games on the G2...wonderfully chuckable plane...

last time out I was all over enemy G6/10s and K4s like a cheap suit...

I didn't know the Gustav was heavier on the controls, I was outturning the highest mark of Spitfire quite a few times in realistic and simulator battles. Probably just that the players weren't doing it right.

When you get a lucky hit with 30 mm in the G-6 its great, killed a stuka in one hit with it.
