No.

I want to first know what they did. Then I say as I think the AC is.

I remember the La-160 had 25 seconds boost time...

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.

Hey Mack..... this is taken from the patch notes:

 

 

 

Plane & Tech Tree Changes

U.S.S.R.

  • La-160: top engine RD-10F replaced with RD-500: non-boost mode performance was improved, increased speed performance, increased optimum altitude, reduced boost duration

 

what other changes do you think they did?

Mack, I am sorry, but you think that WG will really read and reply to a thread that all its says (besides the title) Really....??

 

If you were a bit more constructive about the thread, probably would see more a response, I mean how are they suppose to know what you are thinking.

Well , I'll rate each one as below:

- Top engine RD - 10F Replaced with RD - 500 : okay, fine , I understand that , so I guess I can not dispute . But as this is the only mechanical change in AC , then wonder if that might have changed so much the performance of the airplane . Can it?

So I will talk always comparing between what he was and what is now . Let's disregard maneuvers that must be made or things like that because it is the same person driving the same. I do not think the best pilot of the game , but I know ( knew ) how to use the La - 160

- Non -boost mode performance was improved : having shortening the boost I understand , but rather with another engine , when I used the boost he increased the speed actually increased, leading me to 400Km / h to 800km / h in 6 maybe 7 seconds. Now I use all the boost and do not get it. Ie , I can not become stuck none , and p51 can stuck on me .

- Increased speed performance : increased average speed yes, but energy conservation became much worse if I do Quaker bow my speed drops by half basically.

- Increased optimum altitude : only increased in numbers , because when I get the altitude limit of the AC , I look like a sitting duck , I can not maneuver the plane nothing compared to the AC before. Before the new realese , I could use my boost to reach greater ceilings .

- reduced boost duration: even reducing the time,  was greatly reduced the strength of the boost too.

For now I'll just leave these things , but others have yet.

Regards,
Mack

more patch notes related to physics:

 

 

Physics

  • Improved energy saving in turns for most fighters and heavy fighters
  • Acceleration performance for boost mode was reduced for all planes, and slightly reduced acceleration in a dive
  • Improved acceleration for piston planes of tiers I-VIII in non-boost mode
  • Speed was reduced for all tier IV-VII light fighters and for tier VIII-X planes of all classes in non-boost mode
  • Dynamic characteristics of jet planes were reduced
  • Optimum altitudes for most fighters and heavy fighters were increased. Altitudes between high, medium and low-altitude levels was extended to emphasize the characteristics of individual planes

No offense, but what's the point of this thread anyway?  Are you critiquing the plane as it is now, comparing it to how it was or asking how it is?

So, you're trolling, got it.

Just do not understand why so sudden changes were made.

The game before was bad for someone?
There was so much difference between the capabilities of the aircraft?

For now it seems that there are actually 3 types of aircraft, with 3 completely different terrain and there is none that can be hybrid as the La-160 was. So I make a point of this plane.

If we look a little into the history of these machine, things were not as sharply divided as well, this seemingly far more radical way.

Only this.

Regards,
Mack

The plane had to many advantages. I believe its still best plane.

That's the advantage of being a hybrid AC, I at no time could achieve a 262, but it could get close, and everything would depend on the enemy pilot error.

I could not overtun one prop but could almost do this, all also depend on the other pilot's error.

These are the characteristics of hybrids, they can do almost everything, but never actually manage perfectly. La-160 is what is closest to Mig-9, an AC that was an excellence in its hybridity.

But now, the hybrid characteristics of La-160 were removed, I no longer have to try to reach someone and wait for your mistake, now I need to have the whole team to keep me alive.

Therefore I believe that the changes were made to keep the gameplay of the game, but not to keep the properties of AC.

I agree it is still a good plane, emlhor than most, but no longer depends on yourself.

Regards,
Mack
