Your two favourite! Explain why you love it, or why you hate it. Or anything relating to balance factors.
Also, do you feel the plane operates as intended in relation to its advantages and disadvantages?

I really like the Hurricane as a fighter plane. I had lots of fun with it and its cannons :D Some dogfights might be tough in one of these cause of the lesser manouverability compared to the spitfire. All in all,it's a nice plane
My second choice is the Stuka as it has that sense of destruction. You can feel the tension when going into that dive, hearing the horns and everything. When I fly in a stuka, I feel like I can make a difference on the battlefield so usually I take my time to find an appropriate target for my bombs  ;D

Sorry i try to keep my feet on the ground as much as possible :P


My favourite though if i had to pick is the Stuka and the BF109F4


Stuka because i love dive bombing and to hear that awesome siren. 109 because of its looks really.

Beaufighter. It just pwns everything. On el Alamein it can blow everything up on the neutral base if its bombs are dropped properly and its autocannons are death to mechanized infantry.

Hawker Hurricane MKII D is missing from the list. The one with AT guns. It's just so fun to fly around with it and kill tanks :).

Second favourite would be beaufighter. It's just killer on ground attack missions.

I hardly fly in FH2, so purely based on looks and attitude. And rep too. If I know a plane sucked at what it was meant for I have a hard time liking it.  :)

Beaufighter - I've always had a soft spot for 2 engine 'fighter' planes and the beaufighter not only has the looks (engines sticking out in front of the nose - good thing!) but the skills as well. Plus, that sound is mesmerizing.

FW-190 - Later versions of the 109 are nice too (the G), but the 190 will always be my favorite german plane, since I was a kit. Like the long nose variant better (D and above, if I remember correctly from my childhood), but the early version has this stout, snub nosed bad ass quality to it.
FH2 is the game, DarklyDreamingDexter is the name.

P-51 Mustang and P-47 Thunderbolt

i dont fly much because its boring to get into a dogfight which i lose flying with a mouse (and hurting hands). i tried it with keyboard controls and that is even worse for me.
so i prefer to bomb ground targets and with these 2 aircraft i can hit everything on the ground and get vehicle-kill after vehicle-kill.

B 25! <3

But since that's not an option I'd go with the Spit and P 51...

Typhoon ... one word? Rockets. I guess the it was this or the P47, but I kinda got used to this one first
Second is beau. You can drop bombs and yet have powerful cannons.

I would have said Stuka for second, but with terrible handling,  its so easy to pick off once it becomes clear where it is.

Try to fly with a gunner on the rear MG, if he is skilled enough you may have surprises.  ;D

Except that the rear gunner can do jack shit cause the sensitivity of the rear MG sucks hard... You need to move your mouse all over the table to move the MG just a few inches to the left...

BF109 F4, because it's the closes to G and I really like the focused fire of its nose guns

Beaufighter, because it has a great view, awesome concentrated nose cannons, and bombs.
He was not wrong. Amateurs talk tactics, pros talk logistics.
