If your squad gets them!   :pray
Back after a loooooong break. Old name Ratpack1 same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

Well,



Not with one wing they don't   :D

This is from the scenario Saturday

This is not FSO where squads are designated a ride.  This is a scenario where you can register for a ride... P-47s are available if you want one Saturday as are Bf109s

We had several first time scenario pilots last week and they said they had fun, come check it out.

P47 is a great plane! It can dive like no other. It has 8 50s for shredding. It can bomb/rocket the Schi++ out things. It can actually turn relatively well for its size. The D11 is super fun for turn fighting. The D25 is a great mid war ride and can turn quite well also. You can catch a lot players off guard with it by getting flaps out at high speeds and turning inside them quickly on a scissor overshoot. The D40 and N are perfect for Jabo. The N can actually turn quite well surprisingly, labtrobe showed me that haha. The M is a beast mode fighter and is unstoppable at high alts, the stats show it.

My only recommendation is to not get caught up low n slow in the furball like most American planes. Excelleration can be a big weakness vs axis planes. I'd stay above 10k if possible in scenarios. Maintain BnZ tactics and only 1v1 the 109s if you know for sure you have an advantage. It can beat 190s all day but it's the rest of the gang you have to worry about, drag your enemies and don't get mixed up slow in the furball.

One of my favorite rides in real life. Heck typing this makes me really want to fly one! Might have to roll that D25 here again soon.  :airplane: :joystick:

I don't recall P47s being so popular back in the day, but I do see a lot of them lately, and they've been a challenge. New-ish fad?

For the past 10 years, all P-47s combined have a stable share of 5 to 5.5% of all air to air kills&deaths

YES!

Scenario this Saturday at 7 EST in special events arena 2

P-47's vs Bf109's

The Luftwaffe has been short on 109 pilots for the first two frames of this event. The action has been intense with Luftwaffe accounting for 106 Air to Air KILLS in a 3 hour event!

Can you fly a 109? Want in on the intense air to air action?

Join us this Saturday for Battle for Paris! An ACES HIGH special event!

Thanks for the stats, Snailman!  :salute

And I might opine, that's with the D40s and N models being used as bomb trucks, doing the dirty work down in the ack!  :joystick: (which I try not to be caught doing? ;))
