    Mine is a three way draw between the Dautless with three speed upgrades and two manuevering (usually with the 37mm or 57mm as an add on), the P40 with the same set up, or the F4F3 with the same set up. I like the F4F3 because it has excellent manuevering when it is upgraded, and pretty decent speed. The P40 is good at manuevering and once the guns are on something, they are not likely to miss. Finally, the dautless is just plain cool looking, and its a real challenge to shoot down an enemy aircraft (other than a Zero) with only the nose guns. After one aircraft, I switch to the secondary guns. Every now and again, I also use the Do 335. So, what do you guys use???

    In instant action, I like nothing more than just an ME 262. I can out fly any prop planes and have the firepower to blow them out of the sky.

    For a challenge, try using only the X-bomb (glide bomb) to shoot down a group of JU 88s

    Another fun plane to fly as is the Zeke with Devastators going against you in the open sea level. Repeat of Midway, I know, but some how it is quite satisfying.

    I like add the Medium rockets to either a Mosquito, Stuka, or P-38 and targeting aircraft or vechicles.

    Yessss. That is always fun, especially when you notice that the rockets will go out to about 3000 ft, giver or take. Then, its only a matter of zooming and lining up your shots.

    My fave is the Spitfire Mustang or P40. The P40 is just so good looking, and like the Dauntless its a challenge to shot other planes down. It is very easy to stall, but i like a challenge. The Spit is a fantastic thing to fly, even without upgrades its handling, i think, cannot be beaten. The Mustang, the pure thoroughbred of the skies cannot be beaten with armament and handling. All of these i use with the 57mm cannon or the Guided Rockets

    A hard set up is putting Ace difficulty P51s against you while you fly some lumbering bomber or something that was meant more for manuevering than taking damage. My favorites in this case were the Bf109 and the Fw 190. I used the Bf109 in the manuevering attacks, while the Fw 190 was used in the energy attacks in a sort of boom and zoom tactic.

    Anyone else have this issue?
    When I fly as the 163 with the 57mm guns as the secondary, instead of just two arcs of fire from the secondary, there seems to be a third coming from the main body of the plane. I'm not complaining, because it just means more fire power, but is it a glitch that is limited to my system?

    why not check the SWON website, it may be a bug that you can fix by downloading some patches, if any

    I have a feeling that those cool CGI creations will become playable in the PS3, instead of some cool movie ur watching

    That third gun is the generic gun that still works.

    it wont come out til about 2007 or 2008, and you can still play your PS2 games on the PS3, and it will only be 300$ for about 2 to 3 weeks of its initial release.

    Exactly right. Spitfire can be used against all the enemies and take more than half of them down before taking critical damage. Always use with two side mates.

    I'd go for the Mossie with the 57mm cannon on it- everything you want in a plane: speed, manouverability, looks, armour and enough weapons to take anything down
