underpowered how, I have no issues with its firepower, what consumables are you using? What equipment do you have?

 

LBSh is my favorite plane, and I know it is highly capable, how are you trying to fly it?

I too would like to know OP what item of your post you mean underpowered.  Engine power? firepower? bomb load? flying? please expand more on your POV.

LBSh is a strong performer in it's tier.

l think it's only drawback is the very low HP.

It has T3 HP for a T4.

Wikipedia says it has a 600kg bomb load. In the game its 200kg? Could that be a difference?

lt's pretty quick and smaller than most heavy aircraft. The small bomb load, but dangerous bomb diameter, are good for the design. It finishes bombing fast and can help support the team in anti-air role.

The rear gunner as opposed to BsH2 and IL2 also helps a bit, LBSh is definitely one of the few anti-air GAs.

 

As l said, it's the HP that l think is the drawback. It has extremely low HP for a GA, much lower than it's T4 tech tree counter. ln fact, the HP is even lower than my T3 BsH1.....

4x 100KG and tail gun...well armed with ShVAK and ShKAS.

 

Just a little on the weak side, but sounds good enough to me.



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.

HP and lack of armor are what hurt this planes performance. Although effective in Anti Air roles, by the time you get to them AA has chewed up the majority of your HP pool, reducing your effectiveness.

My only gripe is that the main guns are a little on the weak side when it comes to hitting Tier V GTs which happens a lot. I'd also like it to have some rockets as well but accept that would make it OP.

This plane has no issues getting into and destroying AA, I can use guns alone on 1 pass in a t4-6 match, I realize that I may be an exception,l but once you know this plane it is far more than people give it credit for.

 

Heading straight into base, I can use my guns and bombs to knock out a minimum of 5 GT plus the base, then return to the fight with little to no hp loss, if you are losing that much hp from an area of AA you may need to speed up a bit... I have turnfought nearly every fighter it comes into contact with and even use it in flight when we run t5s instead, I have been the sole survivor with multiple air kills and double digit ground kills... the plane is my favorite because it is awesome to use in every way, but you have to be a lot crazy (IMO) to get the most out of a GAA, and I am such a nut... if you aren't, you just may find fighters or heavies more to your style

 

Oh and the rear gunner has 60 or so kills, that dude is more than a 'bit' helpful
