You can list more than 3, if you'd like.

 

For me, my beloveds are:

- Bf 109 B

- Bf 109 E

- Me P.1092 (will definitely be the Me P.1101)

 

My stinkers are:

 

- Me 209 v4 because it is just awful

- Bf 109 F because it is under-gunned, especially coming from the 109 E

- Heavy fighters because I can't break the habit of wanting to turn (I'm working on it)

 

Planes that I love but don't work for me:

- Bf 109 Z because it is too shotgun dependent and I've missed more kills, when needed, because of it

- Ju 87 G because she doesn't have bombs and its anti-aircraft capability is anemic (but super sexy when they land)

A6M5, A7 and F-84 are my most loved. Most hated would have to be my bombers. All of them.

I love the Bf109 series..., yep, 109F is under-gunned but has altitude.  109E gives me the most kills.  My 109B is my 1st Specialist plane.

I also love Aircobra & Airabonita...they're just so so maneuverable.

Spitfire is a smooth fighter; Mustang is a heavy duty fighter.

 

I don't fly bombers because they're toooo slooow.

 

Heavy fighters are OK, yeah, sometimes I forgot I'm not in a fighter.

 

Ground attack planes are tedious work, but they do survive a bit longer, sometimes a plane pops up as a target of opportunity.

not a bomber fan, but i'm accidentally getting productive in the EF!

 

not a GA fan        not generally a MR fan, except for the Corsairs

 

i would love to fly LFs, but i'm not productive in them, so i don't

Hmmm  Spit Vb, Hurricane Ia, and S-199 are probably my favorites.

 

Hate?

 

Me-209V4, Yak-9U (mostly because I hate flying against bots in those things) FW-190A1

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Swoose, P-38, Pancake.  Lub me mah heavies.

 

Chinese Oscar, P-51H, FJ-1 were some of my most painfully unenjoyable planes to fly.  Any fighter low, slow and short-ranged above Tier IV would be a candidate.

Love Bf-109F, FJ-1, IL-10 (for a change of pace)

Dislike Pe-2, P-47N, Yak-3RD.  Can't say I hate them because I really haven't flown them enough.

the token makers: IL40P, Hurricane-IA, XP54

 

47 planes in my favorites too many to list but here are the ones that stand out: BVP210, F94D, KI94I and 94II, Typhoon, ME410, Yak3RD

 

Ones that I do not like: Spits, 109's, any of the period 1 German, Bombers with one exception and that would be the SU10

 

I have 174 planes with less than a third in my favorites and I only fly those that get my dailies.  Every once in a great while I will pull something out of the mothballs and fly it to get my daily.

 

What is my priority... ... ... tokens tokens tokens!!!!

Right there with you!   I don't know which I hated more - the F4F or the I-210 - but the I-210 was much more recent and the pain of the grind to specialist still lingers....

My favorite is still the Me-262 HGII.  Followed by the Me P.1092 and P-38F.

I like a lot of the others, just for the joy of flying them.  The J8M, for example.  Or the Me-262.

Hated planes?  Well, top of the list is the IL-8.  I can get out and walk faster than it can get anywhere.  I was raging at it the whole time I was playing it.  The I-210 is not far behind.  Flies great, guns SUCK.  Finally, the plane that is currently making me tear out my hair.  Yes, Sea Hawk, I'm looking at you.  Getting to the Hunter is a slow, painful slog.  I really would love it if there was SOMETHING that you did that was great.

But, no.  Well, you're great at keeping me at a sub-60% win rate, you jerk.

looked at Compare Planes for both the HG ll and lll side by side

 

the lll is faster and more hp, but ttt / maneuverability and the guns are identical         why would i be hitting better with the ll?

 

maybe the targets are 5% more elusive at T10?

 

ooops, i'm surprised       i'm a tiny bit better in the lll, sez Player Profile

 

Me 262 HG II   47 battles average 3.35
Damage Caused to Aerial Targets 2,742.56
71.19%  WR        3,231 E/B
 
Me 262 HG III   38 battles   average 3.58
Damage Caused to Aerial Targets 3,136.18
69.70% W/R       3,462 E/B
 
okay, not that much dif         wait!   i get less E/B because i sometimes see T8s in the Il
 
but why would i get a sense that the ll is more maneuverable than the lll?
 
edit:  fixed a lll to a ll

I've noticed that--while flying the same plane--I feel more maneuverable when I'm top tier. I think, for me anyway, the answer, is that I am more successful in my maneuvering against equal and lower tier planes than I am against tiers above me. I'm in the same plane, but I get away with less when I'm downtiered against competent humans.

cuz you're flying against slower and less capable Tier VIII and IX planes.  What I miss about the HG III is the rockets.
