Hurricaaaaaaaane

Ever since that first mission you use the Hurricane to bomb the ships, I just fell completely in love. Not to mention the tracers are AMAZING in helping for deflection shooting.

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.)
While I love the IL-2M, and it's damn near unkillable-ness, the little IL-10 is more of my style. Same armor, smaller target for Rocketeers. And I prefer the matte olive green paint job to the camouflage. I know, taking one plane over another because its paint job is stupid, but it worked for me. I've gotten just about all of my amazingly bs kills in the IL-10, and I know what it's going to do before it does it. It feels really nice, being in tune with your plane!

well my fav plane has got to be the bf109 if im honest allways has been since i was a little kid ....but...


since ive been trying out the russian plane i found that the la-7 is the perfect plane for my flying style im a little heavy handed and she is so forgiving and she can turn with the best of em
ive been getting more kills per match with the la-7 than i ever have with the bf109 series

Whilst I wait for the P-51 to be fixed, I've come to love the IL-2M as a fighter. It's very stable and easy to aim, can take huge amounts of damage, and the machine guns just cut through 109's like butter.

The A20G is also my favorite bomber, it can take huge amount of damage and still be controlled pretty well. It's rear gunner has great range and power. It also has alot of maneuverability for a bomber. Also it looks a bit similar to the B25......I can pretend.

In the game, I like the I-16. Very manueverable and better guns than the I-153. In RL it's the P-61 Black Widow, mainly because it was my Grandad's favorite and we were very close. Plus, 4x20mm+4x.50cal FTW.

Bf-109 for me. The G-6 doesn't turn quite as well as some of the others, but the firepower makes up for that greatly. I love the way the G-2 handles, but am less fond of its guns and paintjob. The E-3 is a happy medium between those two (just slower).

It WAS the La 7 until my friends started to say it was no fun flying against me because I was too good in it. So now the Goat flies the Yak 3. Such a beautiful bird. Easlily the pretiest plane in the game.

Look at my username...

I haven't got the game yet so I can't comment on if the plane is any good in it. It just looks bad ass.
