that sounds like complete bulls**t. I mean...the greatest ace...and noone knew his name? Bulls**t. Where did you read about him?
What the hell? I bet half of you only know these planes by playing video games, not all of you but probably most, The best fighter of all time was the MKII Spitfire, and for the pilots part, the Spitfires them selves had an elite core. Spitfires were the reason the Battle of Britain went so well. Spitfires and their pilots could out preform the Axis and Allied aircraft anyday of the week. The fact is Great Britain made this best aircraft of WWII the B-17 makes the only acception, but even the Mosquito could out-preform that.
Hey now, you just into forum bashing or someshit? but like I was going to say, the p-47 thunderbolt wasn't a bad plane at all neither was the Folkewulf or the wildcat or later Hellcat.. and holy shit the plane even the history channel agrees the best Carrier plane of ww2 was the corsair... what are some other forgotten heroes of ww2.. the b-29 by far, it didn't need p51 escort or any escort for that matter, it just flew over the flak and fighter range of its attackers (excepting the jet fighters.. you got me beat on that one) ofcourse... there was that damned japanese "sub carrier" that woulda carried their little.. err.. not jenny's but the jet bomber thing they had.... (were going to have) once they got their jet from germany... err I forget but that woulda been fun.. lets see now, you got the little german KOMET with the Jagdefaust for b-17 slayings.. that'd have been awesome if they got to use it (and if they did actually use it It'd have been cool to see gun camera footage from something like that) um, the only draw back to most german fighters is they only had 2 machine guns and if memory serves correctly their cross point was much closer to say the bf109 than say the p51 and its 6 wingmounted 50's My one question is though.... why didn't the russian YAK planes ever make it onto this list.. or the Italian planes.... those all faught and scored kills.
This is the best plane of world war 2, not the best carrier plane, or good planes. All german planes lacked one thing, Fire power, and the only forum I will bash is the CoD WW2 File Front Threads.
HardLineThe Spitfire and the Mustang was almost equal, but the Mustang ended up having better range, speed, and weapons (the British .303 was insufficient). My money goes on the P-51D which appreared near the end of the war. The Japanese planes were poorly aroured and too easy to shoot down, the German planes were not as agile, and the Russian planes were good but never excellent in any capacity, and too few. There were good ones Japan, Germany, and Russia, but none really stood out. The B-17 was the best medium bomber, largely because it had much better armament than the British Lancaster.
B-17 is a Heavy bomber.... for my list.... Allied Fighter: p51 Tank Buster P47 Bomber: B-17....hard choice i like the B29 and B24...... pacific theater Fighter: Corsair Divebomber: Dauntless (no really tank buster jap tanks were crap) Bomber:B29.....or B24 part 2 Fighter: Hawker Hurricanne Tankbuster Typoon Bomber: Lancaster. Axis Fighter: Me109 Tankbuster: Stuka Bomber:......none Soviet Fighter:....none Tank Buster: IL2 Bomber.:....none Japan Fighter:....none Tankbuster:....none Bomber:.....none
XxFuzzYxXI know that you can't fly planes in cod uo..but i was thinking.. what plane totalled the luftwaffe? everyone is always saying whats the best tank, gun, and all of that. im thinking aircraft. i think that one of the best planes was the Messerschmidt BF109
yes you can fly planes in UO try connecting to 18.104.22.168
or for you slower people... bring down the console and type /connect 22.214.171.124 of course :28960[/B]
Intro Hello guys, I just subed to give my comment on this post, first of all, asking a person what is the best WW2 figher/bomber is just stupid , its all going to come down to what country you belong too UK, USA etc & personal tast BnZ (boom n zoom) TnB (turn n burn), slash attacking. I play A game called Aces High 2 & its a real hard core WW2 sim(address at the bottom of the thread), its great even if the graphics are not too great, but the game play makes up for it 10 times over. Now if you've played a game like AH2 or any other WW2 Sim you will know that A good pilot is better then having an uber La7, P51D, Spit. My Ride Personal my fav plane to fly is the Typhoon/Tempest (when I have the points), its just a great BnZ plane & the 4 20mm Hispano Cannons can tear planes to bits on 1 pass & can retain its speed so well just like the spit & P51D. P51D Now for all you American's out there the P51D is a GREAT plane, but like every other plane it has downfalls, if its caught low 10K & under then its no better then any other plane in the game, very poor low speed maneuverability & acceleration can make it easy pickings & even the 6 50. cals dont offer the punch of cannons, but above the clouds (18k+) up it has to be the one of the best fighters, with its FANTASTIC SPEED, GOOD ENERGY RETENTION, PERFORMANCE FLAPS & HIGH SPEED MANEUVERABILITY. Completely different from the Spit 5,9,14, Its more like a shark waiting for planes to get low & slow when it can just play with them withs its FANTASITIC ENERGY RETENTION & LOW SPEED MANEUVERABILITY & not the mention GOOD CLIIMB RATE. Bombers
When I take a bombing run, the first thing that comes to mind is how much chance do I have of meeting an NME & do I have an escort. To cut it short if I have an escort I will always take a Lancaster 3 no doubt with its 14Ibs bomb load, But if im on my own then I should take A B17 B24 & B26 but I never do as the Lancs better bomb load is too tempting. P.S I would use the B29 but they have not added it as yet, but that would be the best bomber too fly period !. Aces High 2
I'm keeping it short once again, if you come & play AH2 then you will notice that all the best pilots fly different planes, P38G,J,L, P37N, Spit, La7 & KI84. http://www.hitechcreations.com/frindex.html come play if you want A challenge.
