To those who have caught the Mustang the hard way...what did you do?

Spoiler

 

That's just about what a crappy player can do...but it gets results...having tier 9 and 10 is useful if only because there are more HP to harvest...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I flew primarily tier 9s & some 8s. I'm currently grinding all 16 tier 9s; so, it helped me along with each nation. Still no tier 10s in my hangar, but I did kill a few.

 

And, the Mustang IA is the 161st  plane in my hangar. :)

Not done yet, probably Monday or Tuesday, but even with the Japanese I went whale hunting and W/R be damned. I used the A6M1 for much of it because the BSh-2 and IL-2 don't have tail gunners and the firing arc for the FW-189 has poor arcs for its gunner.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Not there yet (around 5k/30k on British planes right now)

Also going to tiers VIII and IX, a single IL40 earns 2000 damage points.

Did a small spreadsheet and picked the planes in each nation and tier bands 'cause I wanted to take care of the dailies and work on gaining some xp for the research trees at the same time.

For the US I used the P-43, P-47b (D-22 trim) and XF5U (Needed the xp for the next tier), (3 days)

For the US I used the A6M1 and A6M5-52 (3 days)

For the Russian, IL-40, did it in 2 days.

For the UK, 3 days Spitfire XIV, Beaufighter, Seafang (Seafang anniversary), for some reason I've been doing more damage per flight with the Spit XIV and Seafang than the P.1056.

 

Update

Total 237 flights, 205 if you discount the flights where my plane did an imitation of a target drone because the game client froze on the map load screen.

 

Completed the research in the Spitfire XIV, IL-40, FJ-1 in the process.

Failed to complete the research to upgrade from the A6M5 for some reason.

No loss as I did not want to get the next tier IJN/IJA aircraft.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

I totally forgot UK opened today and was flying other things. Probably will do it in Javelin Swift or Attacker... maybe 228.

Unfortunately my computer failed me after I got the American and German done. I used my Starfire as I was grinding to the f7u which the grind is now complete. For Germany, I am grinding the 262. Didn't finish the grind, but completed the missions. I was waiting for the Japanese mission to start when my computer crashed.

Well, I was wrong about Mon or Tue, finished up tonight. Used the Meteor, Mosquito, Beaufighter, and the Bristol 146 for most of them.

I set the filter in hangar to British planes. Then I flew them from left to right and from right to left, from tier IV to tier VIII. It took quite a while but it was fun.

45 battles

You are missing out on a nice plane Q. It will likely be in the Premium shop and tech tree soon enough anyway.

Yeah, I have a pretty good idea what I didn't get, but I had no time to spare in any attempt. Besides, I tip my hat to all of you who did put in the effort and got one for your hangars :great:

Unfortunately the 4 day windows proved to be problematic for me due to work. I was able to finish all but 2, but real life is fickle sometimes. I went ahead and bought the last 2.

Takes only 2 hours with tier 9 and/or 10...slightly more with 8.

 

When it comes to damage...higher tier is plainly better...
