The P-80A is, provided you are comfortable with machine gun armament, is a pretty good aircraft.  It’s fast, it’s quite manoeuvrable and if you can keep your tail clear when shooting down opponents, quite competitive.  On the other hand, the best that can be said for the Ki-94-I is that it’s highly situational.  If you’re allowed to get behind bombers it’s lethal, but pretty much that’s it.  A Me 265 will outturn it, so it’s not even that good at shooting down GAAs.  It’s one for the collectors only, in my opinion.

They adapted the price to the quality of the plane. The pricetag for the P-80 is pretty ambitious considering the current state of the game. But they will sell it...

The machine guns are an advantage for inexperienced players.

sums it up perfectly. It was much better pre 2.0 in my opinion - not even worth a crewtrainer right now


There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

The Ki-94-1 is like chip shop curry. You know you shouldn't buy it, but dam it, every time its on sale I am tempted. No idea why.

Idk what you have against the P-80, it does over 400 damage in a second if all shots from the 6 guns hit, so with the average of 400hp on T8 aircrafts, it deletes most aircraft in 2 seconds(with my setup at least, get as much "accuracy on moving targets" as possible, its aim assist that leads your bullets straight to the target even if they are slightly off) and doesn't even overheat after that. Sure there are one hit wonders out there that can do it faster, but they have troll guns which overheat very fast and are useless in close combat, something like that is only good gainst bots heavies when they come head on to you for a ram or against noobs who fly like bot heavies. But ok everyone loves KV-2 because the one one-hit lets you forget the 3-6 misses/splashes before, i like reliability more than RNGuns.

 

As for the Ki-94-1 it looks like a GA that lost some weight to gain some altitude, it should be able to delete some stuff and get away, at least from turn fighters but with that turn rate even a Me 262 looks like a turn fighter.

It also has 2 weapon upgrade slots, so you could increase its firepower with 25% fire chance and the 5% weapon damage bonus from the long gun barel upgrade and use it like a "Firebreather" GA/Anti-GA/Anti-Bomber aircraft, you won't hit anything maneuverable with those 30mm guns anyway, they are most likely like every other 30mm+ gun in this game RNGuns.

I won it probably the same way. I would not call it crap but I would also not spend money on it.

In the bomber event it was useful, in normal random its probably not very useful.

Question for the P-80A, buying this in the bundle vs in game, is the paint scheme in the bundle exclucive, or is this the same one (through the Upgrades and Marking menu) as if I was to purchase the aircraft through the tech tree using Gold? Thx

Edit, re-read the bundle details, and it's a special

Special paintschemes are often good looking but worse that seasonal paints and so not worth anything.

In fact the paint scheme never arrived for me, and the worst thing is that an answer for my ticket failed to arrive as well. :-(

 

I have to revise my statement, pait scheme arrived after 3 days. :-)

Seems you have to fly one battle before you get it. if this doesn't help reopen the ticket until you get an answer.

Please pay attention to the news articles with special offers. It is mentioned that you need to play a battle to get your camo, nose art and emblem.

What you should be asking is why aren't the cannons and machine guns at least as loud on other planes?
