Hijacking Zens post here :ohmy:

 

 

So I'm nearing my goal of getting the Sabre which will be my go to tier 10 high maneaverability fighter.

 

I've decided to stick with the F2H Banshee as my main tier 9 yes the XF-90 rocks but its just to sharp looking for my eyes.

 

So what next GAA, Bomber or Multirole (shudder) or some other kind of fighter that isnt a MEp10101010101010101010

 

The main thing is this it cant be American as i have too many already.

 

I got to tier 6 on the RU bomber line but stopped there as bombing made me really frustrated...

 

Ive basically painted myself into a corner!

You can never have too many Americans.

 

Spoiler

 

Where to go next? British HF line, the Ugly Duckling story with prizes on tiers 9 and especially 10.

No P51A?

 

Come to think of it i didn't much like that plane either.

 

Hmmm the Brits do look interesting but all those spitfires are such a drag...it'd be good to try a more unusual line!

 

One day we'll get the Seafury and Lancaster :coin:

There are more maneuverable fighters at tier IX and X ...

I have the Sabre researched but I'll stick to the Yak-30.

 

Now that I'm comparing them, I might get the Sabre for speed and altitude ... mmm ...

Heavy Fighter line, not a light one with Spits and other butt-sniffers!

 

It is a process of becoming a Man, as in "If". If you can endure Mosquito and Hornet (and to some extent P.1056) broken, and stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools, you will see the glory of tiers 9 and 10 and—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Oh thank god i don't think I could bear playing my way through those S**tfires again. 

 

That Javelin looks nice, so does the Beautyfighter although I'm confused how to play it is it a bomber hunter?

Beäutyfigter can't climb high enough for bombers - only if they come in low. But look at the armament, mate. You are a devastator. Go kill other heavies and GAA and all in between.

And the Mosquito and Hornet are just as bad ... that line is the biggest disappointment so far in Wowp.  More GA than HF ..

I too have heard a lot of negativity toward the Squito too which is a shame as the RL version was very good...

 

Why did they not have the Westland Whirlwind instead of the Hornet?

Sounds disappointing, unlocked the Mosquito a while ago, but haven't purchased yet. Seems like a tree to spend some free exp. in.


Please have patience with my spelling/language. English is not my native tounge.

Tread carefully. (unless you have zillions of free xp)

 

Endure the line, fly in whichever configuration, stiff upper lip, save free xp and push your way to Tier 9 somehow. That's when you'll need free XP to max it out instantly - while stock it can be a dog but when with top equipment (especially ADENs) it becomes a monster. Almost so good you wouldn't need to go Tier 10. Might as well stay at 9 and enjoy.

I actually researched the P.1056 ... but for the moment I had it with British heavies. 

And there are more planes to consider like Sabre, XF-90, IL-40P, Swift etc (also researched, only need 2 dozen million credits).

 

Btw ; the ADENs come at tier X, not IX I think ?

If you do not have it yet - go for Mig15bis. It is a pure pleasure to fly it on X tier.

I got the Mig-15bis recently, but so far I've not had a lot of pleasure on tier X (with any plane, except possibly the Yak-30), too many aces and head-hunting bots there. For the time being I'll stay on V - VIII ...

Try telling that to the bot controlled 'flying gargoyle' who shot me down at 2500 metres while I was in my Do217m.

 

Probably the same bot pilot as the one in the Ki-43-II in a game yesterday at over 3000 metres shooting at me. I kid you not. Only reason I was that high is due to the cap being next to their spawn point.

Can someone tell me what is better from Mig15bis, Me P1101, Fw 252 and Swift? I'm asking especially for the good handling in the air (high speed turns) and the ease of hitting.

Send me this pic, please, so I can make a full screen comparison of them all. Go to Tech Tree and do the right click, Aircraft Details, while your best pilot siting in a plane, fully Enhanced and all. Those two and add Fw 252 please, I forgot it.

I'm not really asking for the pure stats. I already checked the stats million times in the site and in game.I want an advice from players, who played these planes (or at least 2 of them). For example I want to know how are the MiG's guns. Can you kill bombers easy with the 30mm gun? Or does Fw 252 worth specializing since it's slower than Swift and equal speed to Mig?

So far what I know:

Fw 252 has the lowest maneuverability from all, but the guns and enhancement slots are great (cockpit, wings, 2x engine, gun).

Me1101 is a beast with the best gun from the speed LFs, with the same enhancement slots as Fw 252 but the speed is the lowest.

Swift is the fastest LF in the game, I'm pretty sure ADEN are a bit weaker than the german 30mm autocannons.

MIG: maybe uncomfortable guns... and that's all.

Oh, OK.

 

I've flown Yak-30, MiG-15 and Sabre.

 

MiG's guns are quite powerful and overheat a bit slower than the German ones. For attacking bombers, I try to avoid it in Lights when the human is flying the bomber. A good human in a Russian one will chew you in a second - I approach them only when in Javelin. When in lights I basically do other stuff, chasing peers and heavies and gaa. For this role MiG's guns are great, can finish fast everything and still be agile and fast A very, very good plane.

 

Yak-30 I haven't flown much but it proved (and while fighting against) it's an absolute King Of The Deck. The ultimate turner for low altitudes  And guns do the decent work - but it lacks everything else (speed, height etc)

 

I won't go much into Sabre, you all know I'm a fan of both .50s and this iconic plane and all... yes it is pepper spray but no overheating and it flies absolutely majestic. Reaches everywhere, every height, can outturn everything except sneaky snake invisibel Jacks... my absolute favorite.
