    Actually I was here for it but you are not in your right mind the A was not as sleek looking and was more menacing looking, however the Dora was just beautfiful you are out of your mind! It also had better performance.

    geez not again guys !!! :rolleyes:

    the A-8 version was the heavy hitter against bombers, the Dora was used in interceptor work with P-51's and a stop gap till the Ta 152 could fill the ranks which never happened we know

    Of course people can be wrong about looks :lol: The poll clearly showed that peeople prefer the D's sleek, beautiful styling to the A's Short, stubby styling ;) (Actually no, thats cruel to the A, it did look very good, just not as good as the D)

    Anyway, lets get back off the subject of looks and on to the subject in hand :D

    Dont take me wrong, I think the A looked great but the Dora was just beautiful. And yes the Dora was a better aircraft too. As Erich said they were used for 2 different roles also, but the Dora was the better all around aircraft and yes Lanc looked better!
