I am aware of the Me 265's speed advantage. I have an Me 329 of my own, but I kept the 265 on the hangar as well

 

I got my P.1102B and still find the 265 as my favorite.

I think I saw you in your 265 once, and you're probably one of the best 265 pilot I've seen, would be interesting if we get to fly our 265s together one day.

My only IL is the IL-2 mod, which is decent in firepower, but the speed is unbearable and the ordnance management is probably not my thing.

Sadly my 265 is mostly for show. I moved the equipment and crew to the 329, all the different guns on the 265 made it feel a bit inconsistent, but I can take my IL-8 :great:

 


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

I actually liked the 265's gun salad as they guaranteed a better versatility compared to the 329's slow-firing 30mms, but my stats state the otherwise: I have better performance (even corrected with tier bias) in my 329.

But I still prefer my 265.

I guess it's part of me to prefer versatility, which is why I ended up flying Corsairs and Hawkers over Spitfires.

I wouldn't say that. You had to figure out where the enemy fighters would be so you could avoid them, and bombkill those who did find you. Sadly that's about it really, the game was very limiting in what you could do on a GAA. Now you really can do some fancy flying and stand out as a GAA player, and not just because you can hit stuff in the air with your bombs or fly level at 4 meters altitude :B

Dont bother arguing with that guy.  Or trying to teach him.  Check his past posts.
