I posted this in suggestions here but I thought I would post part of the post here also.

 

Basically I was really excited for the IL-2 (mod.) but on flying it felt like it really lacked the ability to kill things in one pass like the IL-2.

 

I believe it needs the following changes as outlined further in my post on the suggestions page:

  • 4xFAB 50 replaced with 4xFAB100
  • 8xROFS82s replaced with 8xRS132s
  • Airspeed falls 26 points from 304 to 278
  • Maneuverability falls 13 points from 139 to 126

 

I think this would give the plane back the ability to kill things in one pass with its additional weapons whilst still having the plane suffer the penalties for being a premium and having a tail gunner.

 

Feel free to post your thoughts here or on the suggestion page.

While I feel it already has plenty of GT killing power, I feel it's overall a decent plane. Remember, it's an IL that actually turns well.. it's the only tier 5 IL that has a tail gun.. so it beat the IL-2 regular.

 

I still voted for the ROFS-132 and the FAB-100s..but then again, I voted the IL-2 never lost the FAB-250s and that the Corsairs never lost the dual rockets/bombs payload. But hey, we can all dream, right?

just keep in mind premium planes (and tanks) are meant to be below a fully upgraded plane of the same tier and just above a stock. It is for credit, crew and XP farming and not to be a pay to win plane. u get a 50% bonus in credits and XP

I don't see what's wrong with adding more ordnance options. Not like they're gonna make it surpass the IL-2 anyway, which has access to 37mms.

I got the plane and I'm not having any trouble downing GTs in a pass until I run out of ordnance. I fly in, once I'm in range slow to minimum speed, unload the machine guns maybe fire a rocket, and it blows up. Once I'm out of rockets, I fly in, slow to minimum speed, unload the machine guns, then drop a bomb at the last moment.

 

I'm usually spotted and shot down before I run out of both, given I can never get anyone to cover me.

I voted no because if a player wants the ordinance of a "real IL" instead of a pay-to-play plane, then they should earn it like us poor GA slobs who grind loss after loss to get xp. Adding those items makes it as good or better than the actual T5 IL-2 since that plane has no TG. It's a premium - you are supposed to feel like the plane is lacking something. If you want more/better ordinance, man up, grind the IL line, and watch your WR & survival rating plummet like the rest of us dedicated GA'ers.

:honoring:

I see a lot of people saying that it's meant to under preform because it's premium. That's true, but there is such a thing as going to far. IL-2 mod is way under powered. It doesn't just have under powered rockets, and bombs, but it also has under powered main guns. Most premiums are well balanced for their tier, but suffer in higher tiers matches. This is compensated with preferred match making. The mod not only struggles in its own tier, but it spends most of its time in tier 6, and 7 matches. Trust me that rear gunner doesn't make up for all it's other failings. I have a lot of trouble just bringing myself to play it. I bought mine for credit farming, and alternative crew leveling from my normal GA grind. The mod is so painful to play that I just parked the thing, and fly the tier four Lbsh instead.

 

My personal suggestion is to either buff the guns to the 37mm, and leave the plane with garbage ordinance, or buff the ordinance, and leave the garbage guns. Just don't do both... That's too far. Premium or not, it should at least be able to compete in it's own tier...

We can't buff the guns or there would be no incentive to go to the IL-2. Just upgrading the ordnance will do, since the dual VYas aren't THAT bad in tier 5.

i even only use VYa's on my normal IL-2 (the premium looks abnormal, really)..

 

because the 37mm arent accurate at all, and overheats too fast.
