I completed the mission, found the airplane in the hangar, I set up the pilot skill, ammo, modules then took a snap for the "Bonus."  It was then I realized my Model 81A1 has a aerial kill marker on it for the first kill.  I haven't flown this plane yet.  

 

Did we have the 81A1 during testing?  I don't remember it.   But sure enough 0 battles and 1 kill marker.

Yes we had it in beta when we had the M.20 and other planes to test.

It was one of the 10 premium planes we got back in late OBT where we get 800k EXP crews to man all the existing planes

 

1. I-5 ShKAS

2. Supermarine Type 224

3. XF4F-3

4. Model 81A-1

5. P-36C

6. Bf 110C-6

7. XF4U-1

8. M-20

9. IL-2(mod)

10. Ki-33



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.

I got over ten Kills with it in Open Beta and more since unlocking again. Only sure check of Kill count is when you get next marker. This version is very close to what the early models the Russian received were like in use. They pulled the 30 cal. wing guns for better roll performance.

I think your missing a tier 1 or 2 beta gift plane that they dis continued and for the life of me I cant remember what it was but it was a blast!

Wasnt the sh-tandem also a gift plane or premium? that was my favourite ugly duckling.:wink:

The listed plane were given for free at that time when the Me 609, F5U(that retains MGs after cannons), J4M1, etcetra, was removed from tech tree...

 

The Sh-Tandem was available for purchase back then...I think it applies to the likes of He 100 and 2PA/L, too. I don't remember any more low tier prem than the Pegas and I-5 ShKAS, though (and back then Pegas was tier 1 and was called Pegas, not Pegasus)...

Thanks for the info folks.  I saw the marker and thought.....  I do believe this new airplane is slightly used!

 

I still don't remember the lil gal.  I must not have spent much time with her, she still has that new plane smell.
