Würger is not a bird's name in German. Würger roughly translates to strangler / shrike.

lol indeed... never heard of that bird even tho im German and it doesnt look very much like a Würger either

Okay that bird got it's name cuz it chokes up after having food. Not sure if FW had that in mind. Also its rather the name of a family or category of birds.

I wanted to buy Dora and Anton, but it seems I'll skip Dora....

Wish I knew how to WIN with Dora, I loose all fights against all other warbirds.



I don't have the Dora, but I just bought the Anton and am having a lot of fun trying to learn that for the moment. For me, the flight manual is a good place to start if you haven't already done that.

Lots of guys on Youtube showing off their skill in the Dora.

Here's one on how to dogfight in the Dora. You will have to watch it to know if it works for you though.

If there's no guide, why don't you do what the other guide writers all had to do? Fly it a lot, try things out, learn from your mistakes, then write the guide yourself.

To be honest, I don't recommend the Dora unless you only want to do hit and run tactics and ground attack. It's probably ok againts bombers to but the A8 is better for that. It can't turn very well at all and any kind of turning in a fight is generally giving your opponent an advantage so you really only have one option. You can hit and run, not exactly what I look for in a fighter.

Before the P51Ds climb rate was improved it was decent, it could get an altitude advantage and keep it but now it can really only hit and run. The spitfire eats it alive with its far superior climb rate and turning ability.

I think the A8 is a much nicer module and it can hit and run as well.

The FW190D9 used to be able to fight really well before a series of updates which made it's engine very fragile and overheat more easily.

Any videos older then 2020 are not accurate representations of the Doras performance in DCS in its current state.

Honestly i haven't encounter any overheat issues. Even when i go vertical to 100 kph range, still cooling does the job.

Maybe that's been fixed now, I don't know. I have not flown it in ages because I don't find it any fun compared to the other planes. I prefer to fly the A8 over the Dora.

Hi guys, thought it best post on here in this thread about dog fighting in the Dora rather than create a new post.
Essentially in the last month I have really got in to warbirds, however I'm new and clearly not very good. I fly the 190d the most and just like it. I do as you guys have been mentioning, fast attack runs no turning etc. I find though that the spits seem to be able to keep up and get rounds off on me. If I try gradually climbing they are still there behind me. So I'm a bit perplexed as I cannot seem to shake them by extending. Obviously my throttles full forward. It's on the SoW server so MW50 is disabled.
