If you can't kill them in a dogfight then hop in an AA :)

FW190 this is just taken from one round of Operation Totalize played on a popular server, I think the thread originator is connecting to the wrong places...

flying was hard in 2.0 to 2.2 (i think) then it got really easy

Well, that's not really my though. The only true difficulty is that you had to often check your position and be careful with your trajectory to strafe something on the ground. Just as the things were in real life.

Is there any difference between Africa and Normandy spitfire in performance?

I doubt it.  Their .tweaks are probably copypasta.

Wich is stupid as by the normandy time, the RAF had much better models then the MK V, wich was largly phased out in 1943 because it was no match vs the FW190

I played 1 on 1 on cobra with the FW190 ... That thing is so good.I could easilly let the other guy on my six with his P51 and i could kill him at ease...Too good imo if i can shoot down planes with it  ;D.

Though FH spit is is really good against FW190. Actually much better than Typhoon as you have chance to get aways from it if it doesn't shoot you down at first sight. Pedals are the key.

I also like the rifle caliber MGs on planes, huge ROF.

well, if you have problems shooting planes from behind, you forget to use the air break ("afterburner" in the controls menu), it will let you stay longer behind.

also, having a joystick helps, otherwise massive amounts of table space is required. Played with mouse on BF1942/FH1 - possible but just killing your arm.

In FH2 1/4 of the time it depends on luck, even a middle skilled guy can take you out if he luckily dived after you did, but half of the time you can dodge it by flying really low near the ground, between the trees with drunk unpredictability.

The rest 3/4 its skill, even in stuka i find it easy to dogfight against 2 middle skilled enemy fighters. stuka breaks in mid air make opponents come into your killzone or attacking from 6 is just a piece of cake.

The best planes are the ones that have a cannon/mg shooting through propeller. guns on the wings need more calculation where to hit, so FW190 and BF109 are the best out there in terms of air superiority. without competition.

Except for a very few exceptions, I hardly find real adversaries in the air. But if I do, I always thank for a good dogfight.

A tip: don't sit in artillery when I am flying for opposing team.

Do I smell a gauntlet of challenge! I was just about to divulge my greatest tactic, however seeing that there are some people out there still interested in flying, I shall not be divulging anything.
