Excellent timing! I just got the Sea hawk a few days ago, so this coincides very nicely with my grind to the Hunter. Besides that, this is also my favourite line that I have played so far.

 

Edit: Wait, what? Three days?!!!??! Looks like I have some rescheduling to do.

I don't think I've specialised the Hunter.  Perhaps I'll fly some of these tier 8-10 planes at the weekend.

Really? I have a chronic shortage of mechanical parts and my only complaint about this event is that it will “force” me to play my T4 more than I would normally want to (honest!)

Nice weekend event, hopefully this sort of event will become more common, focusing on a different tech tree line once or twice a month.

No x3 First Victory? Why?

So.. for anyone not flying british aircraft, there is nothing this weekend.. not even a x3??

I guess I will spend my time on something else then..

Of the 10 battles I've flown today (mostly in the Skua) I have been up-tiered 9 times. 

 

9 out of 10

 

and I've seen maybe one battle where specialized aircraft were balanced? 

 

Just...what is the point? Drive away players?

 

Well, mission accomplished, I think I'll play something less soul destroyingly pointless for the rest of the weekend.

I don't have any of these aircraft and I'm a bit puzzled why the premium T3 Type 224 isn't included which is unfortunate for me but that said it seems like a nice opportunity to grind some credits and maybe train up a bonus pilot by simply purchasing the T2 airplane and just reeling off some battles I guess, especially since the mission is stated as repeatable.

So this is an event for nothing but multi-roles and the order is to kill/damage aerial targets ... what are the bombs and rockets for ??

Because it's a fighter ... it's good at killing other planes, so you can't fly it in this multi-role event. Wait for a fighter event (where you probably have to destroy ground targets).

Ok, not as hard as I thought, especially after I figured out that you can do the missions in any order. ( How many times...:facepalm:)

it is grindy, esp for the tier 8/9/10 missions, that said, I should be a lot closer to specialist on all of them after this weekend! and with a big boost of freeXP for the Polish meds in WoT

7 days premium, 250 gold and some other junk for me. Plus some decent crew xp earned on the Hunter (tip - troll bomber flights to rack up the damage).
