And let us also not forget, that it was the Hurricane and NOT the Spitfire that won the Battle of Britain.

 

Yes, mainly by numbers. They were 2 to 1 compared to the spitfire.
Take it to the limit.
One more time.

I'm not expecting it to climb quickly to 10kft but it would be nice to be capable of it, the low altitude element of game play needs looking at. bombers can get to 8k and bomb easily. Also from an immersion pov not being able to shoot down german bombers in the hurricane mk I sucks...

 

Altitudes are also part of balancing. If Hurricane go higher altitude, it would probably make him more overpowered. All climbing in WoWp are quickly, because there is no time for otherwise.

Hurricane mk I is not IMO OP. How is the plane OP Bf 109 is faster and has better guns, the a6m1 is more agile and has cannon, there are differences between the aircraft, The altitude rating meaning my bf 109b struggles to get high enough to escort do 17's and my Hurricane can't fly high enough to shoot them down.... then look at the spitfire vs ju 88a and also the bf taking ages if it tries to escort. Wheres the immersion I cant escort or shoot down bombers in the planes that did this in real life.....

In real life Corsair flew higher than Mustang.

Planes' shapes are the only thing that is more or less aligned with real life, everything else is sucked from the thumb.

I enjoying the Hurricane I during the Albion event, however that's with the huge caveat that those games were mostly against bots.

 

I think often people play multirole fighters as only ostensibly so, but I think with the Hurricane you shouldn't ignore the bombs. They have good punch and reload quite quick, and while staying low your 8xMG will make quick work of ground attack planes or any fighters that come low.

 

I usually didn't have the time to explore the high-altitude performance.

jakub I think we both have similiar frustrations with flight models in this game. If WoWP is to grow new players need to feel immersed. If they aren't capable of doing things that happend in real life they won't feel any immersion. I want to climb to 10k in spitfires to encounter German bombers escorted by bf 109's but at the moment the British planes struggle to get high enough and the performance reduction of the bf109 above 8k ft is terrible... The points about the Corsiar is perfectly valid and I agree with you that the FW 190 line also needs love.

 

With the implementation of bombers I feel its time altitude performance for nearly all planes was addressed.

I'm afraid that the best way of finding immerse is to install other game with planes, tanks and ships.

 

OTOH - if altitude performance would be real, it would take too long to gain it, and there would be other issues.
