Default The Anton rocks, plain and simple.

Thank you ED, this is my new favourite now. Time to put the Dora into storage.

This is a great A/C, and so well modelled too. Perfect for airstrikes and it's not even the dedicated ground attack version yet. Gotta love that mythical, magical radial growling in front of you. Echt Geil, meine Damen und Herren!

Just measured it. Using full throttle and a full fuel load I got the following top speeds (TAS/IAS):

  • FW190A8
    525/525 @ 200m
    570/444 @ 5000m
  • Bf109
    570/570 @ 200m
    640/493 @ 5000m
Cheers

Yes, it's very well modeled, has a nice sound and it's nice for ground attack. Just don't try to dogfight in it

If you follow this advice, you'll miss out a lot of action and shredded enemies.

If you usually play against the AI maybe Against a half competent opponent, you have no options but try to escape.

Here's just a little example dogfight showing how the A8 has no options and no hope in a real dogfight:

I have different experience. If you fly decent enough, you can even fight Spitfires. More than a capable fighter in the right hands. Online or not, just have to fly right.

I cant quite agree on that one, since all the numbers speak against you, except for armament. But armament does not help you much, if you cant point your nose towards your opponent.

Rollrate. Use that. Everyone will follow you into a scissor where you will most likely can get on their six.

They would have to be kind enough to overshoot for that to work

If you really can make it work in multiplayer I would be very interested in watching a video or tacview track or something to learn, but currently I do doubt it.
