...what to pick to fly in the game first or what line you should go up. Of course we all have our likes and dislikes. Though some may say what I am about to post as a link is faulty, I find it very helpful in comparing aircraft side by side to make the best choice I can. If you look up mt stats you might think I have not done well....going 99% solo is a tough road so bear that in mind before you ditch this advice. So, here it is!

Also without pointing out the difference in those comparisons using the altitude statistic will mislead people into making poor choices. For example a Yak-19 is not going to out turn a FJ-1 at 4000 meters.

This is an arcade game with super power ups now!

Fair enough, I misspoke.

Aside from his horrible stats you give more reasons nobody should be listening to the OP, they might end up just like him. And one is more than enough.

Okay, so for newbies that are learning flying games in general (this was my first 3D PvP game, and first aerial combat game) there is one particular line of aircraft (A/C) that helped me out a LOT: the British Spitfires.

 

Why, you ask?

 

The spits do not excel at anything, but they are very solid at everything. Learning to fly the Spitfire will give you ample opportunity for the following:

 

Boom n' Zoom (BnZ) and Turn n' Burn (TnB). The Spitfire has an excellent rate of climb and performs vertical loops very well, though it does not retain the energy or reach the altitudes of some other planes. It will BnZ the better turn fighters, and TnB the better energy fighters.

 

Responsive, but not twitchy.

Machine Guns (more difficult), or Cannons (easier).

Somewhat durable - neither paper thin like the Japanese (IJN) planes, nor made of Adamantium like the U.S. planes.

The engine is not well protected... equip the restarter.

Train your pilot in both Engine Guru and Veteran - you will need both of those skills to make the most of this line.

Medium altitude. The tier 5 Spitfire I is king.

 

Learn when to BnZ an opponent, and when to TnB - this is by far the best line for that, IMO. Some of the Russian La's are also good contenders for this - I am currently working my way up, so don't have enough practical experience to back up any advice on which is better.  I hear the premium tier-5 German "Messerspit" is a lot of fun.

 

Good luck newbies, see you in the skies.

The LA line is way more versatile than the Spitfire line, until the Attacker.
