Thunderbolt, cal 50 mgs and rockets are owning ground and air
Stuka: strong against tanks, and also pretty strong against planes- too strong if you ask me.
eventhough I liked the old version better where you droped 4x50kg bombs at once, and they actually hitted something, the 2x2x50 are not too good.

one guy picked the best fighter in the mod, is this a sign that people think it's overpowered?  :P

That was me, and I don't even fly.  :)
FH2 is the game, DarklyDreamingDexter is the name.

I chose the spitfire and stuka. Chose the spit for its looks. Always loved this bird with its sleek lines and curves  :) My other choice was the Stuka because this bird is sturdy and mean. I imagine it like a vulture circling over its prey.

@Tankbuster: lol....I use cloud cover  ;D

A big, fat vulture that shouts "Blow me" at the 40mms on the ground.

 i miss the plane handling from the first release but I do really appreciate the nerfing that was implemented so the noobs could have a chance to play.

atm, favourite plane is the Beaufighter with the dual nuclear bombs on Mareth line.

  I would like every single plane if they had a nose-cam, the view distance in the game is so short that nosecam is the ony way to go if you have to play on lowered settings.

I play infantry only, so planes are really more like background graphics to me ;) a bit like artillery.

edit: in fact, looking at my stats I have been killed 655 times by rifles, but only 8 times by artillery and never by plane :D

 Doesn't understand simple English, what a fucking surprise here ...   I will repeat the quote

""i miss the plane handling from the first release but I do really appreciate the nerfing that was implemented so the noobs could have a chance to play.""


 I like anything that makes Fh2 accessible to an ever-dwindling playerbase. Since I use a trackball mouse, the newest release of plane handling characteristics have altered my ability to fly capably.

 I didn't whine about anything Toris, so pull your head out of your ass and perhaps reserve your commentary unless it is constructive or at the very least cogent.

I think you have died 8 times IN artillery and never in plane. Correct, anyone?

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.


True,
but i still pray to the devs for the day when theyre gonna present us with this. :D :D :D :D

Is there any way to make the freelook in planes reverse itself? So I hold control and move the mouse up to look up, as in a tank? Reversing the plane controls makes them unflyable because it obviously reversed the whole control scheme. I don't fly much so it doesn't bother me much but I find it really awkward.
