I only get a problem 1-2 games a day, and it seems to effect you a lot more - it must be really frustrating when it happens more often.

Close to 30,000 or over matches and this is a first for me.

I actually shot down a Spitfire more often than he shot me down in one battle this morning.  But of course the one time he did snipe me in return was that most important time - right after the Squal Line.  :sceptic:  One of the enemy Spitfires in my battles this morning had over 18000 points - about as much as all of our human pilots combined.

 

I find I enjoy the heck out of killing Spitfires.  I get the idea some folks think that merely having the plane is a magic wand to be waved to get an aerial victory.

 

I just ain't so.

 

I have made a meal of Spitfires, especially with my heavy fighters.  My Bf-109 and Me-209 (tier tree plane, not the v4) light them right up.  The 30mm in the nose of the 209 makes short work of Spits at-tier.  Out-turning them in my Yak-15 makes me all kinds of happy.  Slamming down on them from above in my Tornado, Typhoon, or Tempest really makes my day bright.  :)
