Default So, your favorite plane!

The IL-10 has always been my favorite little hellraiser. It's smaller than the IL-2, but still armed and armored. However, she proved herself the best little airplane ever to me in a CTA Realistic match.

I was coming in for a landing in the beginning of the match. The IL's are a rugged series, so I came in hard. A little too hard. I lose a wheel. I'm missing my right wheel. I still land on the runway, somehow, without getting shot down. I take over the field, and since I am all for preserving my plane for as long as possible, I try to take off.

She takes off.

She stayed in the air for a good while after that, fighting for her fallen comrades. Oh, that IL-10 is a darling.

So, I want to hear your stories about your amazing little feats in your favorite airplane. This game has given me a lot of good stories like that, so I want to hear yours.

Hmm... I have to think about this for a bit, because there are several.

But, I like the Yak-1B for Capture the airfield. You can scream to a dive, cut the throttle and level off for a dramatic landing. I have had allot of good luck with it. That said, I also like the I-153 for it's nat like manuverability. I like my P-47 for quick dive bombing strikes, because it falls out of the sky like "Steel Rain", but sometimes can be a bear to pull out if you get too overzelious.

I hope that they come out with the Pacific Theater later so maybe I can fly my all time real favorite, the P-40. That, and the P-47 have always been my two favorite era aircraft.

Good ol' Hurricane Mk.II!

Great turning has saved my life many times, and it can withstand plenty of damage (especially wing damage) and keep on flying.

i like the FW-190 series and the ta-152, but this game does them a terrible injustice, on account of how badly they fly.

my other favorite is the DORIER 335 in my sig

I like to use a different plane every match but when I want to ensure a victory or know that the going will get tough I mount on a Spitfire mk IX, I simply find its guns and platform perfect. Another way of saying this is that when going against a plane I fear and have more respect towards the Spitfire.

I use the Hurricane when I want a competitive match against ME 109's.

The La5 and La7 are simply too perfect for my taste ( if only they overheated like in the PC), maybe when they add redouts and blackouts they will be fun to fly.

However, lately I have fallen in love with the FW 190D-9 and I seem to handle those Messerschmitts pretty well. (This is in Simulation where my enemy has no target on me)

Soviet if you have PS3 please add me too I always enjoy true dogfights

I love the IL-2M. Variety of loadouts (not that I have them all yet) and it's just a lot of fun to use in both Strike and CTA. It's like a WW2 A-10. It's easy to love a straight up fighter, I like a plane with more meat on it's bones.
I don't know why, but I even love the blindspots with the armor to the sides of the cockpit. It's tough as nails, versatile and has a rear gunner. What's not to love?

(Well, actually unlocking the bigger load outs is what I don't love.)
