As far as names go, I always kinda liked the Grumman Cats. Hellcat, Wildcat, Bearcat etc. My favorite is the fussin' and fightin' Tomcat, ready to take on a dozen of the enemy and probably get scratched up in the process LoL. Wait, I think my name is also a cat.

You guys are a trip! But you're all wrong. Yak? Awful!!!!! The cats are pretty good. Butcher Birds is great if it was a real name. But the best is:

Kingcobra! Damn good airplane. Too bad it's not in the game!

Yeah, it's a good plane to get chewed up by my A6M2-21 Zero! lol. Maybe even my "Oscar"? Either way, I wouldn't be caught dead in one of those death traps. Which they were since they had doors!! rather a proper canopy. Nice looking plane though.

Agreed. I'm a fan of all the 'cats, but they saved the best for last.

Anytime, Baby!

Actually, I could be wrong, but I believe their biggest problem was the lack of a supercharger. I think the performance would have been much better with one. The engine was the biggest problem.

The armament was definatly not too shabby, definatly better than any Yak

Better armament, doesn't mean a better plane. The Yak-3 was much lighter due to just have twin MGs and a single cannon. While the P-63 Kingcobra, had four MGs and a nose cannon which weighed it down significantly. My Yak-3 could take care of the Kingcobra anyday.

F-104 Starfighter.

Sure, it's after WW2, but I still think it's pretty cool name for a plane. I guess it can be a bit cheesy though...

I still love those early jets.
