Currently I would say my fav is the Hurricane IIC. It seems to perform very well against the Bf109 and FW-190A.

Now that the A-36 is in game It is my favorite til we get a P-39 :) but its handling is fubar'd. It feels very sluggish unless its done that way to compensate for the bombs?

The A-36 is the ground support version of the P-51A. The only modifications to make the Merlin engined P-51B were the Merlin engine, moved carb airscoop from on top of the nose to under the nose, and some aerodynamic changes to the belly scoop to improve airflow. It is basically the same airframe. Below 13,000ft there is a roughly a 200hp difference.

So basically since FH models low altitude the A-36 should just use the P-51D's flight model but have a slower top speed.

I just can't get enough of flying a Hawker Typhoon, a Junker 87, a P38 Lightning or transportplanes like the Junker52 and Dakota Skytrain. I haven't used the new Waco gliders jet..... but a lot of players who used them say that they are really effective in battle and fun to use.

Hurricane and Devastator because the models and skins are just awesome, especially the desert Hurricane. The quality of these models is sublime. I love how levers move in the cockpit when taking off and the hood slides back and flaps retract.....not your normal Battlefield standard models!!!

Holding my breath until a beaufighter and A-20 Havoc/Boston is included ingame.

If only we could make the A36 suck at higher altitudes... *Sigh* The P-40 is another favorite. The .50s rip through early tanks and trucks, and its 250kg bomb is great for rubbing out (watch it...) that pesky PIVF-2 on El Al.
