The Brewster B-239 in Aces High II
Aces High II Performance Charts
You can take upto 4 US .50's. Two are mounted in the nose with 200rpg, and the other two are wing mounted with 400rpg. For fire power, you are at par with the P-51B, FM2, and the F4F in the 4 gun load out. You can swap out one of the .50's for a .30cal with 600rpg and 400 rpg for the other .50 in the set. Since it takes 4 bullets from a .30 to match a .50 round, it seems kind of pointless though. About all you will do with that is even out the firing times for the .50's, and I prefer to leave the 400 rounds in the wing as a back up if I have to fight when the others are out of ammo.
No external options exist.
Pretty easy to cover. You can out turn any fighter in the game and you should use that. Verticle manuvering is much more limited. Your not terrible, like a fully loaded up P-47N would be, but you really have no options here.

TURN YOU IDIOT! TURN!!!!!!
Your turn rate is about all you have going for you. For firepower, you're in the bottom end of average, or at least just below it. You don't really have the fire power to make a good BnZ'er. You can't run anything down, and some bomber will be able to walk away from you. Try and sucker someone into turning with you. Keep the turn pretty big and stay off their 6 till you have them slowed down, or they will realize what you are doing and walk away. As his E goes down, start slipping closer to his nose to make him think he has you and tighten up his turn, using even more of his energy. Once you do that, tighten up the turn and get on his 6.
