At first I was thinking "Hit Points". However that did not fit the profile. I then dug deeper for other references such as:

 

покупка в рассрочку = Installment purchase
продажа в рассрочку = Sale by installments

 

But it was not until someone on the RU WoWP forums started asking what HP meant. And now I have the answer

 

Spoiler

 

Dang, Russian is hard to understand. I thought I would let all know what they (RU WoWP pilots) mean by the the abbreviation.

It would be really great for someone at WG to copy pasta the Q and A over to NA side... Perhaps developers blog installments?

Guess all their translators work on Tanks and Ships, they don't have the effort or time to give an F to Planes...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

June is the last time our WoWP Dev Blog was posted, which is around the same time for the RU WoWP Devs blog. They are not that forthcoming with information.

This is what I imagine it must be like to be a russian to english translator for Persha. :trollface:

Obviously, the Russian for "New Mode" starts with the characters that translate  into "H" and "P" but the phrase its self doesn't start with a "h" and a "p" in english.

...is it that long, it warrants abbreviation?

HP is Russian acronym for:

невежественный Разработчики

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
