so, some of you may be thinking that the Ar-80 is far from OP

you couldn't be more wrong

i have been consistently shot down by '80s in quite a few matches

usually flying my BSh-1, which although slow, does have a tail gunner- unfortunately one that can't hit the broad side of the barn from 5 feet away while chained to stay facing the barn with a MG-42 in his hands and an endless belt of ammo


why am i complaining?

It usually ends up i am shot down within a 30 second-to-a-minute time period





just wondering what everyone else thinks of the Ar-80 with 20mm is OP for it's tier
Back to WoWP...hopefully i can run above 6fps avg. this time

I don't think the Ar-80 is OP. Yes if the pilot hits you the 20mm is going to hurt.  Next time ones on your tail use the plane against itself. Take him low and make him over shoot then rip him out of the air. Your slower and can maneuver better lower so you'll have the advantage.If you find you keep having trouble contact me or AlexVandross and we'll show you some tricks to use in GA planes.

you have 1x20 mm + 2x 7mm shooting at you   it's obvious the results

I'm going to say no. I've flown that plane a few times, and it's not that bad. You get into a Polikarpov I-16 (late mod.) or a Mitsubishi A6M5 Reisen with TWO 20 mm guns, and now you start talking OP. And both of those aircraft would be within the current Match Maker's algorithms to toss in with the Ar-80 or other Tier 3 planes in some matches. If you dislike the Ar-80 now, I hate to see how bad you'll think the I-16, both early and late mods and A6M5 will be when you hit that level.

The Ar 80 flies badly compared to other fighters in order to use the 20mm, so no.
