Hispano guns suck. Weak, overheat fast. The worst 20mm in the whole game IMHO. (Spit XIV, Mosquito today to be Hornet and P.1056 on weekend)

 

Are the Adens up there on tiers 9-10 worth the effort? Noticeable difference?

and how wrong I was explained at #7, ~30 battles later:hiding:

Attacker is in my opinion one of best LF on its tier in the game. Seafang is arguably best premium plane in the game. Swift is not so fun cuz Hispanos>Adens in LFs. But it depends on playstyle i suppose. If u dont like Hispanos - u r spamming ammo left and right without using a brain apperantly - quick, well aimed burst of fire = frag. They r not MGs - they r cannons...so u must change firing habits which u apperantly acuired on low tier Spitfires - being happy trigger here is big no-no.

Why dont u like those guns? Look at Mustang - english version is OP becuase american MGs were replaced by Hispanos...

P1056 with full 20mm is just a beautifull thing (sadly the specialist config with 40mm suck).

Whenever you can choose 20mm do so. Brits with 20mm are always a good choice!

OK OK, time for self-flagellation here...

 

I've wrote the OP after a first couple of games on Mosquito (flew only a handful on Spit XIV a long time ago, forgot all about it). It took me some time to adjust to the plane - and now 30 games later from OP, I admit I was wrong.

 

These guns really do perform as you all described. It only took the time to adjust. Now I've finished the first battle in Hornet with only 4 stock Hispanos without the MG's and it's doing all you say. They do work. Different beasts from US 20mm's that I'm very accustomed with - still better IMHO - but they indeed do work rather well.

 

So to sum it up, I was wrong and you all were right. All right? :hiding:

 

 

 

 

ps

and BiBa, I was hoping those 40's would be great. Too bad they aren't.

 

Thank you all!

But hey, the question still remains - how are the ADENs?

 

and one thing sorely lacks in autocannon data:

- time of burst until overheating

- time of cool down

Long story short: ADENs suck.
