Do you want to try the Bristol Beaufighter V? Very well, just beat the series of missions and get it for your Hangar!

Hmm.

Blenheim.

Without bombs.

At tier V.

 

Anyway, just to collect dust.

Hurrah! At last, it is here! I will do anything!

Ouch, but ok. No slacking then, even on the first stage.

Finally we have something "new" to the game. It will feel similar to the SE 100 probably.

A little misleading title - that's the IM Beau, sans IM. Both planes, though different, have the same name now, and it takes a while to dig the details out. And of course - thank you for finally bringing this one in, and for introducing something to the game again :)

Thanks for the effort, but this is not something I'll waste my energy on. I'm happy with my other T5 heavies. 
Please have patience with my spelling/language. English is not my native tounge.

Missions can be completed in any order - they run simulltaneously. So technically it's not the first stage :)

Oh, another classic ww2 warplane. One thats so OP its embarrasing to play. They were superduper gunplatforms for shiphunting, but in this game they are super duper heavies. IRL the were easy picking.

Too bad the boating season is like started now, only reason I have some time to write here and not beeing on the ocean is a starter engine stuck in the cusom in sweden... lol. Do get this plane boys.

Why the standart UK t5 heavy has over double its firepower - 4 cannons (2 here) and 6 machineguns (0 here), only the turrets are the same?

Oh wait, what?! Just two cannons?! 

 

I'll collect it but cant see much point ever using the thing if this is the case.

I see no point to allocate time from my life to get a premium plane that is a lot worst than the normal one.

If it was tier IV then maybe worth it

So still no new content in the game for me.

HI all , good for collection or fun only, same Beaufighter on same tier have double firepower and can carry enough explosives against noone piece. Here is maybe interesting his speed. overal this one is , how to say ... poor family member -  new (copy/paste/lowering power) plane.. BTW ..thousands times  better than nothing !!!!

Sadly for me is again British, we have not enough soviets and britishs planes, specialy about tier 5  :D  lul. 

way for compare :

This plane: 2 cannons, 0 machineguns, 0 bombs or rockets, 45 km/h.
Tech tree UK heavy: 4 cannons, 6 machineguns, can carry both bombs and rockets, but 5 km/h slower (40).

For these 5 km/h to sacrifice sooooo much firepower... no logic for me.

The guns are slightly more powerful than the regular ones, and with slightly longer range. The turret MGs are better than the regulars, much more damage and slightly better range.

 

Yes only two canons compared to the four on the regular one, minus the set of six MGs, but that's on paper. Maybe those two canons will perform the same as the regulars. Maybe even better if they stay cool longer.

 

This plane will not be a dog as it looks at the first glance.
