Why don't you switch back from the specialised version to the standard version?
There you can choose the guns you want.
You will only lose all advantages of specialisation regarding optimised equipment.

I agree that's a solution of some kind.

I also agree with "theOneWith..." that the top guns on P-38 F/J are useless, complete crap.

 

However, the real question is: why punish (limit) planes that have been specialised in relation to weapons ?

P38F/J with 37mm cannon are like a wild horse, they will be your favorite if you learn how to use them. Trust me :B

Dear chapultacus,

 

Being on the receiving end of your deadly P-38F and J, I must admit that you can turn any aircraft into driftwood in a matter of seconds. So it works. But like the others, I can't seem to make it work at all for me. I find the 37mm muzzle speed to be low and deflection shots very difficult. Plus the MG have different shell trajectory -and the bloody plane goes too fast to apply your DPS onto the target. When I compare it to the Japanese heavies, the Ki-45 and the fearful Ki-102, the armament behaves in a completely different way: all shells behave like laser beams, hit the target at the same spot, have that one-pass-one-kill capability and deal incredible criticals. Plus, you turn better and accelerate fast enough (still less than the P-38!) to loose a chasing Yak, Ki or out-of-boost Spitfire.

 

What am I doing wrong ? Why can't I be as good as you devil are ? :) What is your trick ? You have a weapons group to aim the 37mm only and not be distracted by the M2 brownings ? I am almost always unable to finish a fighter in one pass if it maneuvers a bit - sigh.

 

Always a pleasure to meet you in your P-38 in the skies, even if you delicately pick off my wings, cut off my tail, smash my engine and turn my plane into a floating accordeon :)

Oh, I trust you. Like levlos, I've been on the wrong end of your guns on more than one occasion :medal:

...and you play very well, even without 'overfocusing' individual players to a degree where it looks like an obsession (note to self: a subject for a different topic).

 

However, the previous question still remains - it was aimed at WG.

Those of us not being able to hit like you do (read: we need more than one frigging 'attempt' every 2 secs.), would still like to have the middle-gun available in the specialised setup - not only for the P-38's but for any plane in general - without having to get more os less 'punished' for doing so.

yep I agree the 37 mm is an ok gun but the range is crap compared to  other 37 mm in the game 

I would LOVE TO HAVE MY CAKE (specialised) AND EAT IT (change gun spec. to the one I want )

just try using it against the op bomber with extra range and hit points with no help from  others 

half your hit points gone before you get close enough to hit it 

as for going back to stock  eek have I lost that much  credits :)

Gentlemen, the devil is in the details. The thing that p38f owners make mistakes is to train the plane to be much faster, this choice makes your plane like paper. I tried this, it is an effective method (for boom & zoom) but I changed it later and found a more efficient method. I thought that this plane is already fast, so my current strategy is to protect the engine, gain maneuverability, increase the accuracy of shooting and extend the shooting range. In addition, it is necessary to choose the pilot experiences to compensate for the shortcomings. examine the details below and try to understand the correlation between them. All the parts I have installed are in maximum calibration and the reassembly settings are intended to eliminating weaknesses. This is what wargaming wants us to do, although it has a lot to criticize (this is another toppic issue).

 

Equipments:

1.  Ultimate Collimator Sight 

  • +21% accuracy of forward firing offensive armanent
  • +10% causing a fire (+10% bonus)
  • +10% chance of inflicting critical damage (+10% bonus)
  • -12% pilot's resistance to injuries (+5%bonus)

2. Ultimate Engine Armor Protection

  • +50% engine's resistance to critical damage
  • +10% tolerance to damage from aa guns
  • +10% resistace to fire 
  • -3,7% maximum speed with boost activated (+2,5 bonus)

3. Ultimate Lightweight Power Unit (Special Project of Japan) --> competition gift

  • +12,6 yaw maneuverability
  • +4,7 maneuverability in turns
  • +1,5 cruise speed (+1,5 bonus)
  • +1% acceleration without boost (+1% bonus)
  • -10,4% engines resistance to critical damage

4. Ultimate Long Gun Barrels

  • +14,5% firing range of forward-firing offensive armanent
  • +10% chance of inflicting critical damage (+10% bonus)
  • +5% accuracy of forward-firing offensive armanent (+5% bonus)
  • +5% damage inflicted by forward-firing offensive armanent (+5% bonus)
  • -18% burst lenght of forward-firing offensive armanent

 

Consumables:

1. First aid dressing package

2. Exhaust bleed inerting system

3. Engine cooling

4. Improved mixture control

5. Incendiary ammnition --> competition gift

 

Pilot Skills:

1. Aerobatics experts

2. Aerodynamics experts

3. Protection experts

4. Engine guru I

5. Marksman I

6. Marksman II

+Seasonal paints for concealment and tolerance to damage from AA guns&gunners

+Looking at the mini map to play

 

With this configuration, I have multiple tactics against every enemy that approaches me, no matter what country, class or level (you can learn it on my twitch channel when i stream). I have achieved 85% win rate using p38 in this way for 2 months. also your resolution and fps are important, 25-30fps and low resolution enemies have no chance.. I have to go now, but if you are interested then I can explain later in more detail.
