When I upgrade a fighter or Attack aircraft I can see the stats on the hanger page change, not so with the speed upgrades and skills. I was wondering if they made any difference. So I conducted some test. These tests were done with my 110b (fully upgraded/no bombs) My hanger speed is listed at 512, as you can see below, that number has nothing to do with reality.

 

 

Height       Speed (cruising)    Top speed (with thrust)     Equipment

Sea Lev.            383

Low. Dark          425

Mid. Green        462                    553                               None

Upper Dark       443

High Mid. Alt.    375


 

Sea Lev.           422                                          Upgrades             Pilot skills

Low, Dark         476                                         Polish                    Cruise flight

Mid. Green        501                   613               Eng. Tuning           Aerodynamics expert

Upper Dark       478                                                                       Eng. Guru 1&2

High Mid. Alt.    409


 

note* Sea level was 100, Low Dark and Upper Dark represent the areas just above and below your altitude green zone. High Mid. Alt represents the middle between the very top of the altitude bar and the top of the upper dark zone. The Top Speed (with thrust) was the fastest the plane would go with thrust on.


 

As you can see the addition of the skills and upgrades does make a significant difference to the 110b's performance. To those who knew this before, "sorry for boring" to those who questioned just how much, "you're welcome."

I was going to say that sure is a lot of skill points on a tier 4 pilot but after checking the plane history for the server I was shocked to see just how many games people are playing in this plane. At 2132 games you are only number 14 on the list & the guy with the most games played in the 110b has 11431 games in it.

That doesn't have anything to do with the plane being overpowered though, they just like how it looks.

Thank you for taking the time to test this out, its valuable information for anyone who does not know! Do you have replays as well?

No sorry...I don't have the replays. Even if I did, I'm an idiot/lazy slug when it comes to going through the steps necessary to transfer them to this forum...sorry. I performed the test in the Team Map Mode. I do however have two questions for you pertaining to the 512 mph speed, as given on the hanger screen.


 

1) Is that a overall estimate of all the speeds? ie. all altitudes at cruising and top thrust, all combined.

2) Why does that hanger screen number not change when upgrades and skills are added, similar to hit points?

1.) The 512 is the average of all the speeds listed below the stat.

2.) Equipment like "aircraft Polish" do affect the top Speed, but it just does not display. This is by design. However, it does stack with applied crew skills. It just does not display on the plane's stats.

Just to show what GhostPrime is saying:

 


 

So the listed speed is an avg of Aircraft Dynamics (which I do not know what that is stat wise), max level speed, and max dive speed.  Which no matter what I do based of the stats listed in the Airspeed drop down calculates into 512.

Yes, the number is misleading. It should be broken down into separate categories on the hanger screen and pre-battle line up. At the very least, just go with the top cruising speed at best altitude. The 512 is as worthless as probably every other speed number, for every other plane.

It would be nice to see the aircraft stats change depending on upgrades, equipment and pilot skills.  Right now re really dont know to what extent things are improving, and we have to rely on testing it, but that is more of a feeling rather than a definite result.

 

If aircraft stats were updates to show exact improvements, we could better decide which equipment or pilot skills better suit our play style.  For example, I may take a larger boost to maneuverability rather than a minor increase to speed.

 

Ghost Prime... I think this is a great suggestion for the dev. team.

It's funny how WOT figured that out but not WOWP.

  I will make a note of suggesting it to the dev team. This is not the first time that this question about the mechanics behind top speed has been brought up.
