Well I don't think there is something like the best plane.

Only a thing like the best plane for the role it is given to. You can't compare a B17 with a P-51.

Everyone is free to tell his opinion... if someone thinks that the B52 is the best plane is free to tell it!

Was the B52 a WW2 era plane? Thought it was Korean era.
yes the b52 wasn't a WWII plane but i think that he can talk about its "cousin" B29 Superfortress

For me the ME-262 was and is the best fighter of his era  :)

Well, I personally think that the Mitsubishi A6M was the best, at least early-war, but 262 is stronger and more advanced, so i voted it

My favorite plane has to be the Hawker hurricane A good balance between maneuverability and speed!

Well, "best" is highly subjective.  There are a wide variety of factors to consider with WWII aircraft (speed, range, service ceiling, rate of climb, rate of dive, durability, armament, etc.) and many planes were better than others in certain areas.

As for personal favorites, I'd probably go with the Me-262, mostly because of its sleek, shark-like appearance.


For best i mean (subjectively) the strongest, powerful, beautyfull and most important... in the list i've written the "most wanted" but everyone can write his favourite as "Best Plane"

Hello to all airman  :)  One Yugoslav plane had great potential, but unfortunately it was built in small numbers.

But hey we can disagree and still be civil :).

Of course. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I have writen information that single IK-3 shot down 11 BF-109s in dogfight over Belgrade on April 6. 1941. I would like to see it in game as premium. ;)

I myself is a big fan of Soviet La serires, 5 and 7 in particular. I'd love to fly them in WoWP!

well p51 really changed the game due to its range but it aint better than a spitfire, as for me 262 ..too many issues with it otherwise it wins hands down

I voted spitfire, because it proved itself throughout most of WW2.  the ME-262 may be advanced but P-52s still shot them down often enough.

My favorite is the P-38. went as far as trying to make a match-stick and Popsicle-stick sculpture of it (about a meter wide).

FW-190
It was just to late in numbers to defeat the P-51
From my readings it was better than the P-51 in several areras
One it was behind in was NUMBERS

ME 262 had problems

Engine life short
Target while landing
Small ammo load

And as with others P-51 was an Icon of the US
Like the Spit for the British
When in doubt..
Shoot a long burst
