1)The BF109G because it has good allround performance.
2)The P-51 because it was fast and very maneuverable at high speed.
3)The FW190 because it had massive firepower and could take a fair amount of damage.
4)The P-47 because it had massive firepower and could take more damage than any other fighter.

I think this thread is about planes ingame, not real life.

There's no 109G ingame and P-47 can take damage so much that it blows up after 1,5 second burst from FW190  :-\.

Every plane in FH 2 is like that... I really wish the devs would revamp plane damage system so we can get some kind of "weakspots" while shots on the fuselage wouldn't deal so much damage...

I know we'll never get a complex IL 2 like damage system where you can keep flying with half of your rudder blown off, engine on fire, jammed MGs, missing tail fin etc. in this mod...

But something more complex than the arcadey approach we have now would be great!
This sentence is intentionally left unfinished...

They could add an onboard freelook option wich doesnt disable the controls.
If anything could improve the flying experience this would be it.

Having played IL-2 I simply cannot enjoy flying in FH2... I prefer AA role  :P

But I actually think that the devs made a great job considering all the engine limitations. All the planes have sort of a character, and this is a great achievement comparing it to the vanilla Bf2.

My favorites are the Ju-87 and the Typhoon.

I like the good old Stuka because it has 5 powerful bombs, and in some cases you can take out small columns of tanks with said bombs, in spite of my often missing aim with the Stuka.

I like the Typhoon because unlike the P-47, it has twin cannons I can use on light armor and infantry for strafing, and also has rockets. The only times I ever killed a Tiger were a Bazooka on Ramelle, or using the great Typhoon on Totalize.

If I could select a 3rd it'd be the P-47 for it's dozens of 50 caliber guns, capable of quickly dealing with enemy fighters. I still prefer cannons for strafing runs though, but the 50 caliber guns aren't bad for strafing cars, halftracks, and trucks.

I prefer the FW-190 (D9 variant?). Fastest plane currently in FH2 far as I know, which means its one of the best planes to dogfight with at the moment.

I think it's A8...my 2nd favourite in FH2

The Fw190 ingame feels very heavy compared with the P-47, while the P-47 weighs much more IRL.

1 Hurricane, good allround vision from cockpit, good maneuverability.
2 Typhoon, good armament, good forward vision. 

Also because they are available on large maps with few AA guns.
