Is it a turnfighter or just a fast rotary with good climbing? I've read that she can't outturn the Albatros (D3 / D.Va), so I tend to believe she is just a fast rotary (dog) with good climbing.

 

What do you guys think?

It's a bit fiddly as I remember from the few times I've flown it.

Somewhere between a Camel and an N17 I'd say.

 

It can be effective in a dogfight I believe, but the lack of vision is a real problem - which maybe makes it more suitable for Spad style attacks.

I also imagined that she was a turnfighter, but I got in doubt because she apparently can't outturn the Albies, which might place her past the Fokker D8.

I'd classify it as just plain shitty. Sometimes the pontoon version with the balloon guns can be fun.

Not if Baron von Zlatan happens to be above you in it it isn't.

What lack of vision? Can't you look 360 if you stretch your neck? Also, it can carry an overwing. I should fly it more!

I think that may be a case of Pilot, more than plane...if you tossed a penny out the side of your plane von Zlatan could put a bullet through it as it fell!

There needs to be a thread on the exploits of BVZ. ( sorry Hanrrrriot for barging in...)

I dare say he is the best of the best.

 

During a long conversation with him I began to question his sanity a tiny bit

however I did not question is ability at all.

That would be obviously foolish,.

 

The question is how long has he/she/them been honing his/her/their skill ??? Eons?

 

Is it possible that BVZ is some undead immortal that has been gaming since the advent of 'puters?

 

Mmm...

 

If you picked up and tossed the same penny, what you threw out of the plane in the first instance that BVS shot a bullet through, BVZ would shoot another bullet through the original bullet hole but going through in the opposite direction.

 

салют!

 

Прощай.

Sorry to digress SW...

 

I remember vividly the first time I shot down BvZ, it's my Kennedy moment !

As you say, daft as a brush, but top bloke.

Hope you're looking after yourself BvZ.

 

Salute !

ZF.
