I'm doing a Plane review and a quasi-training video for the P-40 M-105.  For the record, I believe the P-40 M-105 is the best of the purchasable tier 5 premium planes (being beat out by the Me 210 alpha plane), with me having the best winrate in it of any of the premium planes I have.  113 matches, 73% winrate, slightly more than 2 kills/match with a 3.9:1 K:D ratio.

 

The biggest thing to know with the P-40 M-105 is to know your strengths and the enemy weaknesses.  As shown in this video, you have to keep your head in a furball and be willing to change targets, break off, etc.

That was one crazy furball.  Nice flying.

Beast of a premium, good to see it getting some positive attention here.   In my humble opinion the Mustang I at tier 6 flies much the same and follows the same dictum/strategy. 

Dreaming of better days.  When this game had full matches, fiery dogfights, and hope for the future.

We all have our own favorite styles, but this is the ONLY premium i ended up selling.  I liked it when i first started playing it, but as I started to focus on true BnZ my preferred play style changed.

 

I could see where this would be some players favorite prem tier 5.

I agree P40 M105 is worth being purchased for players training pilots for Soviet YAK and LA lines

I was able to train and gain perks for 2 of my YAK line pilots much faster with a P40 M105

I purchased my first P40 with tokens in open beta and repurchased with gold when game launched

 

Gin is right about P40 not being best at BNZ but most soviet fighters are low alt limited so it will teach

you how to fly soviet fighters and fight at low alt  get used to being BNZ in it  That is way the game

is designed I think they want each line be different so every fighters not the same

adds strategy to the game like the different pieces in a chess game

 

I also recommend camo paint this plane seems stealthy it pays to be like a ninja in it
