Nice video as always.  

 

Full confession:  I was aiming to be the first to 1000 battles in the P51H because I figured no one else would be so insane.  Then I find it's you.  And to top things off, you did it in the 51D and I think 51A as well.  

 

Now you are spamming another high tier .50 cal slinger and I am jealous my friend, jealous as hell.

Thx everyone !!

 

Bobby, Yeah, the Mustang line was the first one I took all the way to X. The 51A, 51D & FJ were the planes I learned the "advanced" game on so long ago. As for those .50 cals, many don't give them the respect they deserve, but as I demonstrated, they can melt two 2000HP GAAs in just seconds and in one pass.

GG 20th.  I have had difficulty in the tier 9 and 10 for that line.

 

I was sort of expecting a certain someone to be featured in that vid... wonder what happened to that guy.

Thx Mars, Yes they are difficult planes. I would say they have two strengths: their climb ability & those concentrated, nose mounted .50 cals.

Oh yes the guns I liked.  Something I noticed in your vid that I didn't pick up when playing is that you were still in light green alt performance even though you were pretty low.  How does it perform against other fighters down low?

On those rare occassions when I have to get really low, I find its not too bad.

I didn't think you could do flights in training rooms.

Thread is about the F-84F, why would you put in a F-94D Marco, you might want to fix your post rather than de rail...

I thought it was about a single player in a LF or MR taking out a flight of double HF...

Nope, it was a thread about DRACS. And then you ruined everyone's awe by posting in it. So Bobo DeBeers asked you to remove your offensive post.
