I don't fly this plane much...but...MAN! All 4 kills I got were 1-shot derp gun destructions. This thing is cool!

that plane is nasty. My Spit @ t6 got a little too low too early in the match, one of those hooked onto and I could not shake him. Dunno if it was the pilot or the plane, but he couldn't connect with the 37 for 2-3 mins. When he finally did though, it was all over. One pop.

 

Is the accuracy bad, or it hard to line up a solid connection?

The accuracy is moderate, the Rate of Fire is the real problem.  Unless you're attached directly to the other plane's backside it's a hard shot to make.  I've had a lot of occasions where the light fighter I was targeting just flew between the shells.

 

 

If the timed link doesn't work, the action begins at time marker 5:07

Magus is right. You've got the shot, but by the time the gun fires, the target has moved on. When you do get the thing to fire on a lined-up target, though....boom!

I'm not a fan of the 37s in any non-GA plane. You just can't hit the broadside of a barn with them.

Maybe the game was a fluke...I don't really fly the plane much. But I got four one-shot kills. That's amazing and if I could replicate that the plane would be phenomenal. Probably never happen again though.

 

EDIT: The GAs were at half hp. The others - even the heavy - were full.

You sir, are amazing. I've maybe had two(?) one shots in a single game. :medal:

LaGG-3 34 is my favorite T5. :playing:

My problem is when you get a fighter on your tail in the LaGG-3 34, what the heck do you do?? It's easy prey.

I can turn fight pretty well in it, actually you can out turn a Spitfire. Watch out for Yaks though. Everything just one shot it before you get sucked into a turnfight.

Any tips for getting better performance out of the gun? Standard or universal?

At least it's more accurate than Ta 152...:sceptic:

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.

Unless that Ta.152 is piloted by a bot.

 

So sick and tired of getting practically one-shot by rookie/warrior/veteran bots in Ta.152s from over a kilometer away.
