Star fighter combat... Cockpit only?

I enjoy playing star fighter battles in multi-player, and I would like to know if people are playing 'cockpit only'...
I can't get immersed if I'm in 3rd person view, I have to be in the cockpit, which limits vision (as it would be if it were real)... are there games that restrict players to cockpit view? or will I always be at a disadvantage to the 3rd person player?

    I think the old Wing Commander games restricted you to a cockpit view. But every other game as far back as I can remember, whether it's X-Wing/TIE Fighter, Freespace, Privateer, whatever, allowed third person.

    I've never seen Elite Dangerous played in third person. That might restrict the view. I know Star Citizen doesn't restrict.

    You'll always be at a disadvantage.
  • Hmm, thanks for the reply, I thought that would be the case :(
