Anyone know if the upgrades for the guns are worth the grind ?
Because, stat wise... They only bring 10 and 12 firepower compared to the stock guns but cost 50k xp each...

You don't look at that number when you are picking weapons - the same goes for every aircrafts out there.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

The stats are just a way to try and compare plane to plane and even that does not work great. Grind and test it so you know if you like it once it goes live. But the people I fly with like the upgraded gun.

you need to look at the RoF and the Muzzle Velocity of the upgrade guns:  NS-23km has 600rpm @ 750m/s; NS-23kmu has 600rof @ 850m/s; NR-23 has 900rof @ 680m/s.  Knowing how I fly the plane, I don't want the tier X NR-23, the tier IX NS-23kmu works better for how I fly the Yak-15.
I like my <CENSORED> like I like my <CENSORED> ; aged <CENSORED> to <CENSORED> years and mixed-up with <CENSORED> .If you take fire from the spouse-AA about the former, launch flares and dump chaff: $$$visa$$$amex$$$vonKrimm2.png

Yeah, accuracy is also important, but the stock guns already are really accurate...

Yeah, but we're talking about 50k or 100k of XP... So if i can spare the grind like the mosquito's engine, i will.

I have the Yak-15 and have upgraded everything... I have said many times the guns are the weak point in this airplane. Sure I get a little bit more power with the upgrades to the firepower but the cost just doesn't justify what you get in return.
My P51H has way better guns than the Yak-15 and I have thought how nice it would be if I  something similar was in the Yak. You also don't get any real benefit with the engine upgrades until you get the last one which cost an "arm" and a "leg" to grind to it.
At stock it seems week and underpowered  a "jet" that acts like a prop-plane..... Upgraded its just a little better... When the game go's live will I grind to get it again...NO!

If you are just wanting to grind to the next plane then only research things on the way to the next plane, if you are wanting to find the best load out for a plane you have to unlock everything and try different combinations and see what fits your play best.

whats the point of flying a jet that cant exceed 2km alt anyway?


btw upgrade to the KMu model since jets are fast, and you need the muzzle velocity..

For a third of the xp needed for the yak 19... Don't think it's worth the grind...
And with some luck with the MM, it can still offer a good game :

yep, a good match for yaks is when you encounter another yaks, ILs, lavochkins, or japanese..

else is hell.
