It has to be the NC 1070 for me. I was so glad to finally get enough tokens to get it that I jumped right into it. In the first game I realized that I did not load bombs. So I got 4 kills instead...

 

I like its versatility (I would probably like the IL-10M as well). And I also like its looks, a beefy plane, not an anorexic needle (looking at ya, F-94D :-) 


WoWS Alpha Tester - I am looking forward to meeting you on the high seas!

The original tier V A6M5 when it had four 13.2 MGs and pair of 20 mms. That thing could pretty much hang in place in midair while turning on a dime, shredding everything that went by.

When I first started playing I wanted to get the F4U and the F-86. Those were my goals. During that journey I found that the F2A Buffalo was my favorite / most flown plane. Not outstanding, not bad and always challenging. At the end of the day, last battle " it's Buffalo time " :coin:

Initially the Bulldog, which for fighter lines led me to love the F3F. I agree with Warchylde.

The Demon led me to the Brit line and the Skua, Blen (with the belly guns) and eventually the Beau, which is by far my all time fav.

A3M would indeed be included, especially when it had a bomb ;)

see... most that know me will tell you I'm dumb as a stump... I like the Fw 57 because it is a simple stump grinder

it rams like a log, shoots like a thug

slams like a maul, an' bombs like a fox

it'll slice you into chunks and tail gunner you into humiliation...

a thing of beauty

love simplicity

 

 

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

For me it would be three aircraft. First being the Supermarine Spitfire Mk I to me it felt like a good all rounder it could BnZ or TnB depending on the enemy I was facing. Second is the Bristol Blenheim F it was the aircraft that made me enjoy heavy fighters. The third and final is IL-2 two seat which may seem like a odd choice, but yeah I have done a lot of shenanigans to the enemy me team which did get me kill but when it worked it was totally worth it.

I-15DM-2. The long-time comrade that survived wipes and helped out with money farming in the initial stage. Used to be quite powerful, but not anymore, especially compared to the I-5 ShKAS tier-for-tier and in the new age of bots.

 

It's all sentimental value for this one...the black paint and the eternal 15th emblem...

 

 

 

 

 

Says it all for me. I remember going up against and shooting down tier 6's in this little monster back when it was a free-for all. XFL and me210 deserve honorable mention.

 My first was probably the f4u-1 pre multi role nerf. I remember one time a 209 was going head on with me, surprised the pilot with a face full of rockets.

I remember the FW 57 being the first plane I loved flying, The Beaufighter was the second.  There have been more than a few others since then, but they were the first.
Fly crooked and shoot straight.
