I wonder why there is no thread here for this perfect plane. A HF who got the maneuvrability of a Fighter and the fastest 4x20 mm gun set up  in T4- T8. (I suppose)

What's about the finish? I've got my standard equipment A vizor, light engine, this special wings for maneuvrability and a tuned turbine makes this plane a  nearly perfect killer.

Actually it's a Light Fighter. And the 420 RoF is standard on UK 20 mm's (Spit XIV, Hornet, Tempest etc)

 

But yes it is a great Premium.

Really a light fighter I thought it was a heavy and was surprised. They almost fly heavy style. I know the the machines you mentioned but they are not so fast.

I think this version works as well.

Oh, I thought this...

...meant the RoF of the guns, not the speed of the plane. That's why I gave you 420, a standard UK RoF.

 Very sweet person - What means RoF? I think everybody who got some british fighters and multiroles knows 420 - yesterday I've made some experience with the Vampire. The boost is great but short and the pilot needs an acrobat skill. I took the guy from the Spitfire XIV for it. (I have all of them.)

Rate of Fire.

 

When you compare various guns you always have to look it too, makes all the difference in the world. For example, Corsair tier VI has 20 mm with RoF 400 while Corsair tier VIII has 420. Or in dakka-dakka land, .50 cal Brownings go from 700 to 1200 etc etc... An enormous difference in lethallity.

 

So when you said " the fastest 4x20 mm gun set up  in T4- T8" i logically assumed you meant Rate of Fire - but looks like you meant "the fastest platform for carrying 4x20". Haven't flown Vampire much so I went to check if I missed this crucial element.

 

edit

Btw, Brits are not fixed at 420. They go up to and including Beaufighter and Tornado with RoF 400 to 420 in later planes.

Mine's cursed.

Thought I'd spend this evening taking advantage of the extra 30% credits for wins on Brit and American a/c. Got some free premium time, chucked on a credit booster and set to go.

Game after game of top scoring but useless, utterly useless bots and team mates. 2 wins out of 10 so far, top scored on all but 1 of them as well.

Frustrating.

Having witnessed your exploits (fortunately from the other side), I can vouch for your misfortune.  We just seemed to have everything going for us, despite me being in the team :B

Thanks for that information. Now I have a new decisive indicator, unfortunately several month after I bought that specialist configuration for the TA-152 and made that wonderful plane unusable. I'm sorry for that misunderstanding.

I have this 20% win rates sometimes too. It helps to change the plane and tier I suppose and to stop after three defeats after another when you are  first or second in the team. This boosters are dangerous in that way. When I checked the enemy team, there are almost one or two players more with 8000-16000 points and just me in my team. All the other planes got something about 3000 points. That's why I need he acrobat skill for the Vampire. There is always a red cloud above a base that has to be conquered urgently and there is only a small chance to do so with extreme dog fighting. No time to kill one, but to damage several enemies and then hope for the turn. Try to keep the speed anyway. It's neither turn and burn nor flash and dash but a mix of both.

Be totally careful with your boosters if you have more than 1 daily mission with win conditions :B

My win rate becomes better the less I play. So I don't take care whether a booster is activated or not. Better play the game when you are relaxed.
