Hey guys

 

I wanted to support the poor WG shareholders :child: so I bought the new premium La-9RD, and now I am here to spam you with a few words on how I like it.

 

It is of course very much like the La-9 or La-11. The thing that sets it apart is the extra engines that helps it accelerate better. I found it very able to keep the speed up when fighting at low and mid altitudes. Up high over 3k it runs out of steam fairly quickly, but if you happen to be chasing a 109Z and he has no friends around it can get the job done most of the times. The guns are classic russian 23mm, they hit hard and overheat way too fast. It has less firepower on paper than its sister-planes, but when flying it does not feel very underpowered. In this video I borrowed the pilot from my I-260 so he has a bonus on engine and aiming. I also run 5% extra enginepower. Enjoy, or flame, whichever comes more natural to you ;).

Looking at https://gamemodels3d...s/vehicles/2793 guns have bigger autoaim angle (2.5) and less dispersion (.5) comparing to La-7 or La-9, respectively 2 and .6 for La-7.

 

OTOH - couldn't you just make a thread in proper planes section?

Why WG call this plane "gift plane" when you must to buy it for real money?

 

In real world,gift mean,you got something  for free,not for money,gold,sugar.....etc.

The words you two are looking for are "Oh hey, thnx man, I was wondering if it was any good, your impressions helped me decide, appreciate it!".

 

Too hard to figure that out on your own is it?

I've seen raw stats and wondered how can WG make it working comparing to La-7 that has one cannon more. Also I have La-11 with similar armament.

First thought was to do the same as they did with Ki line, and it turns to be true.

Also I watched La-9RDs live on RU server and watched their streams, so La-9RD wasn't already an option.

 

A comparison with Yak-3RD would be interesting as they have a lot similarities.

 

But nice that you kept server running for me :)

Mayhap, I'd like to wax lyrical on the sweet nature of my Frenchie HF and GAA: where would I post my Froggie-appreciation thread?  :unsure:

I think Talv is pretty happy with his La-9RD. 

 

However, given the...."mixed responses" (for the lack of better words) here, I also guess he is keeping further evaluations about the plane away from forum.

I don't blame him for doing that, btw.
