Favorite WW2 Fighter Plane



  • Which of these fighters are your favorites? I have allowed you to have two votes. Sorry if I have missed any deserving plane.



  • what about the different spitfires the 1st 1 the 5th and the 9th were very important spitfires i shall vote when you add them.

    Do not forget the stuka as well



  • The Stuka was a dive-bomber.

    I’m asking the question about principle aircraft models. If I added every different version of an aircraft the list would number in the hundreds. The list must stay as is, unless I’m missing an deserving aircraft.



  • Me-262 and FW-190…you forgot Me 163B comet

    You should do this for fav bomber, inf riffle, MG, SMG, tank, ect.  :mrgreen:



  • DM Mosquito, Seafire, Boulron-Paul defiant and Kikka

    There is 4 planes you missed 😞

    Also if i find anymore i’ll let you know which there probably is



  • P51D with RR Merlin engine. ~ZP



  • The most important United States Fighter of the Pacific is not on you list.  You leave off the plane with the most kills in the Pacific from you list.



  • @F6FHellcat:

    Which fighter do you speak of? Are you not refering to the Hellcat? It is on the list.

    The Mosquito did not come to mind when I made this list. It’s a plane that should be in included.


  • Official Q&A 2007 AAR League

    I think the P-51 is one of the most beautiful aircraft to take to the skys for any purpose.



  • I know the P-51 is supposed to be THE fighter of WW2, but I’ve always had love for the Spitfire.  It out-gunned all other fighters early in the war.

    And I voted for the ME-262 as my second vote for the tech.



  • what about the toher 3 planes please add them



  • I do not think your other three planes are worthy to make the list.



  • Macchi C.202 Folgore of the Regia Aeronautica

    The Italian Thunderbolt

    I voted for the 262 and the FW190



  • Or how about old school:

    Fiat CR.42 Falco (“Falcon”)
    Gloster Gladiator
    Polikarpov I-153

    No love for two wings  😉



  • The Gloster Gladiator nearly made the list. The few Gladiators at Malta that flew againist the Regia Aeronautica have always made an impression in my readings.

    The planes or the pilots? The smaller the number of aircraft the less their performance/capabilities can be seperated from the pilots it would seem.  😐



  • I like the way the P-38 looks. But I think that the mustang would have to be my fav.

  • Just thought I’d mention that a lot of these planes are flyable (including some bombers) in the game Secret Weapons Over Normandy by LucasArts.  A pretty entertaining game overall, and you can feel the difference between the planes.

    I agree



  • i chose the yak and the spitfire because the yak made a difference and history in russia until the yak russian airforce was crap the yaks at least were the spitfires in the eastern front!

    It’s good to see some Soviet support. The Yak often gets over looked in World War Two discussion along with the Red Air force.

    Ivan N. Kozhedub was the highest credited allied ace with 62 victories. Following is Pokryshkin, Alexander Ivanovich, the Soviet’s most famous ace with 59 kills.

    Erich Hartmann, in his book The Blond Knight of Germany praises the skills of the Red Air Forces’ Guard Regiments. He refers to these skilled pilots as Stalin’s Hawks.



  • Thankyou i just chose the yak because it was a good plane and so was the spit don’t kid me wrong germany had pro fighters and peeps in them but well (they had no plane strategy)



  • No love for the Italians?

    Here is some



  • But love for the YAK?

    And so little love for the ZERO, HELLCAT and Thunderbolt???

    And no P 39 love  😮
