They are added to airplanes, but there is no information about them.

 

UPDATE: The description has changed. Does anyone know what these unique skills are?

Spitfire

Basically you get Spitfire that out-turns Zero in right configuration - you pay for that by being denied the cannons of Spit 1. That prolongs the time you need on the 6 of your enemy to kill him which in turn makes you more vulnerable to enemy fire. And you are marginally slower than Spit 1 however that is no big deal in current meta. Long story short - without Charles Donovan pilot Spit 1a is not choice to go. With Charles Donovan it is interesting plane.

 

Bf-109

The premium option of Bf E-3 even with Hans Weber pilot is imho not better than regular 109E. Damage of 274 vs 180 in favour of regular 109E makes the 109E-3 more difficult to justify. Even with Hans Weber pilot you get only 198 dmg. Improved 0,3 sec turn rate of E-3 and 50% increased crit chance in dive imho do not justify the downgrade of firepower for boom and zoom plane, which 109E in principal is. In one on one dogfight the E-3 should kill the E, but in current meta 109E should kill more planes in the same amount of time and thereby secure more points and better win-rate.

Crap thing is not being able to retrain them for other planes with those perks working.

 

If that was made possible, I would surely buy both.

The planes come with two pilots. One pilot is in the plane when you look at it in your hanger. The special pilots will be in your barracks. Just swap them.

I don't get it ... he says he has pilots with different names but with the special plane skills ?? I'd love to see a screenshot of them.

What is the problem that Arnold Gille or another? If he has the skills assigned, then everything is ok.
