Good ol' Chokai/Nukemind here. I rarely put up screenshots of my battles, but my second ever 10 kill battle I thought deserved one. Mainly because the plane it was in. I also wanted to start a discussion about said plane. THe HA-137: my favorite "fighter" in the game! What are yall's strategies in it? Me- I used to dump it's bombs on targets, GA a little, then turn in and fight. Now? Well the past 30-40 matches I kill one GT, maybe two- and that's at most. THe rest of the time I'm shooting down planes like crazy. She was my first 8 kill plane, and my second 10 kill plane. She is just such a wonderful little bugger. Usually listen to Libera me from Hell when playing her too.

The (not so) amazing Chokai is back! And he's hit all his personal goals sans one! Seriously though, nice to be back, looks like he game is improving. I continue to try to recruit new people.

Good stuff Chokai !!

 

 

The V1 on paper is slightly better than the 137 but I think both are pretty nice even though I haven't flown either of them all that much

 

You'll find yourself in more of these situations mostly due to newer players going after Ga 1st for some reason

 

Not sure if they want to establish that they are better than Piddles the wonder mutt, or its just an easy target for them...I dunno, they are new so I give them space

 

:honoring:

Great battle! Thanks for sharing this! It's been a good long time since I've flown that plane.

My strategies for the "BeeVee".

 

Seasonal concealment camoflage....low level concealment is vital.

Equipment:  Reinforced Airframe. Improved Optical Sight, Engine Tuning

Pilot Skills: Marksman, Aerobatics Expert, Engine Guru

Consumables:  Fire Extinguisher, Pneumatic Restarter, Weapons Cooling (those 20's are a bit** to cool down)

Ammo: Universal

 

1: shoot anything that doesn't move.

2. shoot anything that DOES move.

3. Enemy GAs are a priority, if shooting planes, followed by any low level heavy fighters (you can out-turn a Fw-57 or Bf-110B if they are down low).

4. save at least 2 bombs for tailgaters.

 

It's as easy as that.

There are very few problems in this world which can not be solved

by a suitable and timely application of concentrated firepower.

Thanks guys! Yeah in 100% Agreement: No one expects the GA to shoot them down. And the Heavies who drop to the deck to attack me find themselves easily outturned.
