It's the best GA and it's not even close. The GT damage potential with the 57's is way better than anything else in the game. Welcome to the club :-)

I agree with Drew on this. The IL-2(t) used to hold that distinction, but with current mechanics, the good ol' Skywhale is a freakin' beast. Nice battle, Porky! :medal::medal::medal:

:honoring:

The only reason the IL-20 has ever been looked down upon was its A2A capabilities. Seeing as the 57's are now effective in both arena's it is an all around great machine. Still, it's a little slow for my liking.

It's funny that you find it too slow. I hate my IL-40 because it's too fast. Less time on target. The IL-20 has a pretty slow stall speed which can really help to set up bomb kills and to force enemy crashes.

That's what the air brakes ( flaps) and cut engine are for. Plus lining up ordnance shouldn't be a problem after 27,000 battles :P You look pretty proficient too me when i see you.

Idk why you didnt like the IL20 in the first place, it is one of the better GAA. I am the king of all windowlickers with the highest server winrate in this beast.

Nerd, 57's in the 1 game I have played in it against bots are where the money is at. 2 shots at a gt destroye, 2 shots at ap lane, destroyed. Never over heat.

You say that when we invite you a platoon, as well.

They used to be impossible to hit with, they are better now. Shoot like the guns on the IL-8, almost exactly.

I didnt like the IL8 guns either. The 57mm on the IL20 may be great for GTs but like I said in the other thread A2A is what essentially wins you matches and the 4x23mm are the obvious choice when it comes to that, I researched the 57mms for the lols and flew like 10 battles with them before switching back to 23s

Let me stop though, too much windowlicking talk from me for one day.

Back before I sold my IL-20 I found the 57s impossible to hit with. I didn't realize they were buffed until I bough the plane again, equipped them, and found out they weren't like trying to fire projectiles out of gyrating firehoses anymore.

I still like the 40 best, and the 40P is growing on me. But I don't hate the 20 anymore!
