So, it has the same guns as the TierX La-15, but it adds one extra to the equation, so it has better firepower compared to La-15;
It has 80 hitpoints less compared to La-15;
It's a bit slower compared to La-15. (50km/h slower in a dive, 100km/h slower at best altitude)
Cruise speed is 25 km/h less compared to La-15 and it climbs a little less compared to La-15.
Has the same 360° turn time as La-15, but a lower roll-rate.

Altitude performance, optimal altitude and stall speed are completely identical to La-15.

Guess this will become a very powerful T.IX LF

Some comments on the missions...

 

There are 17 grind missions ("Do X in any number of battles") - by my rough calculation, these will take me around 180-200 battles (Some are quick (75 sections of ground targets) and some will be long (7500 capture points))

 

The other 18 are (obviously) all single battle achievements - and as we know, for most of us, most are achieve-able but not "on demand"

Then there are a subset that are (for me) too hard: "destroy 5 aerial targets with a gunner in a single battle" - Seriously??

And in 15K battles, I have still to get either a Gabreski or Golubev medal

 

So, I think, for me, this is around 300 battles in 30 days plus enough certificates to skip 3-5 missions

Certainly more do'able than some of the WOT grinds!

Seems like a challenge.

The list of the missions is completely not for a novice player. I think that even experienced ones might have a problem with some of the missions.

Good luck!

From the aircraft I have played that you might have or be of any help to you. I bet you can if you tried.

 

5 aerial targets with a gunner ins a single battle.

 

Note, it says "aerial targets" not exclusively enemy aircraft. This means simply kill 5 of your teammates. It means ADA aircraft are very nice and be thankful it wasn't "in a single sortie". Some attractive sectors for this would be airfields where you have a lot of light fighter ADA's which are easier than the heavies.

 

From what I've played, the easiest for me would be...

 

- T8 Tu-10 bomber. Really good at this. Fly low, get both the top and rear gunner to work on a target. 

- T5 SNCASE SE 100. Punchy single 20mm with well over 1km reach when pimped out.

- B-29C. Ya, need I say any more? 

 

Gabreski.

 

- T5 + T8 UK heavies, and T4 to a lesser extent.

- There's actually a chunky amount of multi's across several tiers and nations capable of this.

- B-29C. Need I say any more? I bagged one with a Tu-10 once but hardly a reliable recommendation.

 

Also, try and focus the ground targets first when playing a heavy or multi. Sure, take any opportunistic aircraft kill when it's there to be taken but focus on small weak ground targets and keep your eyes peeled for ground targets that are almost destroyed. Airfields can be a good source of both weak ground and aircraft plus be aware of your time. If you are making good progress don't get stupid and make big plays, instead try an heal if you have one of those maps with that sort of airbase that heals and box clever. 

 

Golubev.

 

- German T8 and T9 heavies. Really easy with these actually since you have the speed and power to farm these from bombers while also the speed and altitude to run away from would-be party poopers trying to kill you while you farm those 3 rocket kills. No need to waste a full set of rockets either, just beat up the bomber with your guns until it's on low hp, break his tail and wings too so he cant wriggle about, then send those sidewinders up his backside. 

- German T8+ multi's. Just as easy. I think heavy fighter ADA are programmed to attack multi's head on so that's just a case of being the lead aircraft into a garrison really. Because it's agile and even takes a Strengthened Hardpoint giving you something like a 40 second rocket reload, it's just very viable with these German multi's.  

-F-94D Starfire. Just got this a few days ago and bagged a few Golubevs with it though not specialized yet. It has the most powerful AA rockets I've played so far but the reload is 90 seconds instead of the Germans 60-45 seconds but you just need to shoot the rockets sparingly since one volley is enough to shock wreck another aircraft, no need to get trigger finger with them.

 

Anyone can do these missions but it requires a little practice, a bit of luck in regards how things fall around you that you can't control and enough time so there's some maps and battles that are going to be better and some that are not so good.

I've managed to get a few gabreski's on NA.

F-84 (IX & X) and P-43 (IV) were the planes i achieved it in.

No doubt. 

 

The biggest challenge I find during these premium aircraft event missions is delivering the goods when there's so many extra players online with plenty of teammates looking to achieve their own missions. This means kill stealing is up about 300% compared to normal, salt levels are up about 300% and there's an urgency to grab grab grab which also leads to some reckless play that would derail something like a Gabreski so it can be tricky to nail it with such competition.

 

I know some that actually avoid peak times during these events and play at stupid o clock in the morning where they can get mosty bot battles and for sure that sounds much better but I couldn't be arsed changing times or life just for some pixel plain tbh. For some those early morning times actually suit their job or life.

@Blindfold

 

The API lists the DPS for the aircraft as a remarkable 782.  However, the DPS per cannon, which is the same type as mounted on the Yak-19, is 170.  The Masha has 4 cannons and I make 4 x 170 DPS 680, that is, 102 less than the API query on the plane itself.

Can you clarify what the DPS of this plane is, please?

The guns stated 782 DPS could possibly derive from a script that factors a fully upgraded Gas-op. 

 

Now technically that would be 783.4 but what's possible is that this light fighter has a gun equipment slot same as the higher tier MiG's which would mean 680 dps + 15.2% with a fully upgraded+calibrated Gas-op for  roughly 782(783.36). Just a thought.

The DPS of this plane is 680. :honoring:

That's good.  Would you be so kind as to ask your colleagues to amend the erroneous figure of 792 returned by the API query for the plane itself, in that case.

Had to check.

Used the https://api.worldofw..../planeinfo/... method.

I'm getting a value of 782 for DPS, but that's what you intended to write, right?

 

(bonus-info.: I'm also getting 782 when using the https://api.worldofw...especification/ method - ofc. without any modules added to the query)

 

I would really like to know: Is it possible to get/read info for ALL planes in the game using the API now??

It should be, though the API is still deficient in many ways, as the WoWP team has announced the rectification of the "Compare Aircraft" facility on their website.  This appears to run off the data in the API though there is modification of the numbers by an unseen set of algorithms.  Since that is fixed, one assumes the missing planes are now in the API.

I'll spare myself this marathon. I'm not really interested in a T9 LF tbh and most likely wouldn't play it very often.
