Altitude was one of the reasons I bought it, even the Ki-45 heavy has problems reaching bombers, but the Ki-88 gets to 2000 meters without problems and climbs pretty fast.

Was worth the tenner to me, but I'm a collector :)

Is it worth a tenner? the A6M3 is a bit slow in a T5-T6 battle and can't reach any bombers.

 

It's not a bad plane, I'd say it's worth it. But, I will say that the gun overheats very quickly, which is annoying, it does pack a punch though.

For me, the only Russian "must have" is an RB-17 bomber - unfortunately higher up in tier and cost.

 

In the tiers you asked, if I was to start again I'd buy P-40 M-105 at Tier 5. Good guns, six US .50's. I love their dakka-dakka.

 

 

EDIT

Here, I've tested it now to see if I remember the plane correctly (haven't played it ages). This is what it brings in a good game.

The P-40 M-105 is a much better plane than it was in 1.9......its guns don't overheat as quick, making it quite a ripper.

For starter Japan A6M3(exp.) tier 5 this was my first flane for money-gold 3rd day of playing this game 20 days ago.

You will learn to not rape trigger and precise tracking of target in turns. Paper plane with crazy GUNS and great turn rate but fast overheat for guns! 

 

After that I buy IL2 Mod tier 5 (its great tank but less money earn than JAP because I suck at playing this)

and after that LaGG 3-4 (Good allrounder but poor in t5 battles exept with rocket headon style, still in tier4

its OVERPOWERED crazy plane, great earner).

 

Today I'l get two tier 5 fighters SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE MK IA & MESSERSCHMITT BF 109 E-3

Alsoo will get crews hangars some emblems... and 2000 gold and I'l buy 1000k gold more and have 500 on acc, so I will try to buy some tier 6 fighter.

The Spitfire Ia and the Bf 109 E-3 are pretty ordinary unless you have the Dunkirk/special pilots for them.  A specialised Spitfire Ia with the Dunkirk pilot can be a monster on the right map.

As much as I respect all of the above, and as much as my suggestion does not exactly meet the requirements of a first prem buy, there's is only one flea above them all. I meant king, one king.

In my opinion the very best "first" premium, is the Vampire! Why? Because :

  1. it can be obtained for "free"
  2. its so forgiving because it doesnt have a speciphic playstyle
  3. Whatever it cannot outspeed,can outturn AND whatever it cannot outurn,can outspeed (still with me :trollface:)
  4. Its t8!!Meaning can make money and train crew for both Spits and Hawker lines

While there is nothing to learn by it(other than how t8s play out),its a great credit earner and i garantee tons of fun(specialy after specialist)

 

Other "fun" options are the RB-17,A6M3,German Spitifire,Meteor (is challenging but once you learn not to turn with it,you will love it),P80A,SE 100...

<sigh>

 

I remember my first premium.  I chose the Mustang Ia because I was advancing along the Spitfire line.  I had no idea how to play it and struggled mightily.

It's been quite a journey from that first plane to the full complement of 110.  I'm quite nostalgic.
