Anyone still remember these weapons from the days long gone?

 

1. Light fighter ordnance (RS-82 on LaGG-3, M8 on P-40 and 51A, HVAR on P-51D and H, bombs on A6M and A7M...etc)

2. P-36's outboard 23mm Madsen

3. Bf 109's outboard gun pods (for F and G models; comes in 20mm and 30mm)

3. SC500 : 500kg bomb (used to be available on Bf 110E; now only available at all on the Me 210 Alpha gift)

4. SC1000 : 1000kg bomb (only availalble the Me 609 - powerful enough to blow tier 10 HQ with a direct hit)

5. P-51H's M3 machine guns

6. The LaGG-3's weapon suite and their combinations - in particular the ShKAS and second 12.7mm MG...the 37mm itself is on the limited version of the LaGG-3 but not the tree one.

7. The 50mm BK-5 on heavy fighters (takes the outboard slot on Me 410 and makes the Me 262 a unicorn...with range of almost 2km but nonexistent accuracy)

8. The F2A's 20mm cannons

 

...well, this is as much as I can remember...



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.

 I remember when the FW190 A1 had more firepower than the BF109E.

Was it still called Fw 190V?

Yup, forced me to free up lots of hangar space when they pulled this stunt

yes it was. 

 

Yeah,  not sure why they had to add in a, multi role designation. I think I miss the changed to the f4u line. The f4u1 line was awesome before the multi role change.

I remember a few planes had a different name. Definetely remember using the A6M1 as a dive bomber. Thought I was flying a Val for some reason! And yes- those gun pods. The 109F looked so ugly, but it gave it more dakka. I do think it's better now than before though.

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.

I miss the bomb on the Zero. It was a fun way to get an early kill; hit a low flying GAA with a bomb. It worked fairly well since you weren't going to be at high altitude anyway...

My 109s STILL miss their gondolas.....

The LaGG-3 was probably the single most versatile plane int he game...run it light and fast with all MGs, run it heavy with some serious derp, or run it somewhere in the middle with a good mix of everything.

I keep telling Buffalo Time that if he thinks he likes the F2A now, he should have seen it with the 20s in the wings......

The A6M1 at tier 4 went straight to A6M5 in tier 5 then the A7M at tier 6...what stood between the A7M and J7W1 was the J4M(1)...the current J4M apparently is the upgraded one...the Type 99-2 back then was such a crappy weapon I couldn't proceed much farther than the A7M...

did it really? I came in when it went A6M1->A6M2. I mean... I flew it like a dive bomber still. What was wrong with the old Type 99-2?

Almost no difference from Type 99-1 as far as I can remember...it had been a very, very long time...

 

Also, the then tier 6 A7M could run both the Type 99-1 on one set and Type 99-2 on the other...I did just that, but that time didn't last, as the phase changed and wipe rolled in...

If they still had those on the P-36 I'd still have one in my hangar.

indeed... of course i got to the F2G just when the line became multi-roll and i got to grind the F2G twice with it being in the inferior setup.

If you're bringing that up...there's the 1000% fire chance lazers as well...

lol shows how much i pay attention, no idea the 36 lost the 23mm.

 

surprised no one mentioned the 20mm's on the 51A, made it so heavy but that late mode sure popped.

Yeah, totally forget about that...wasn't big on American planes myself back then. Gone before the rockets, before they were gone as well...

 

The British Mustang seems to have its own dynamics, that makes those cannons work...that or those are better than the American-made 20mms...
