Oh, how we miss the 'ol "combine" plane. :sceptic:  (I miss how effective the .50s used to be on the Mustangs too.)

NICE!

 

Miss the way all large caliber weapons behaved, the plan was pretty bad but that 30mm hitting  zero was so satisfying!

Before 1.9 I think...and now it's working in 2.0 test...

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.

a flight of c-6's in the proper hands was a devastatingly OP'd game... watching that advertisement reminds me why one sits in my carousel... very cool but sad

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.

That was Herr_Oberst_Nu's video, wasn't it? 

 

This is back when the 30mm cannons shot faster but didn't hit as hard. I mean, it still hit hard for its tier, but not 100 damage per shell hard. Funny how the 110C was kinda considered UP when it released.

I named my airplane Iosef because it kept on Stalin

I'm also kind of remembering that it WAS a bit underpowered when first released but (if memory serves me) it's guns were buffed within a few weeks... and then was quite the scourge after that,

anyone else???

Well the 30mm was a slower shell so it was UP because folks couldn't adjust to the 12.7mm (? haven't looked in a bit) and 30mm velocities.  2.0 - the 30mm is a green tracer round but I can't tell when it hits.  I think I last played 1.2? Where the 30mm was buffed to do some real damage.  I can't really tell what it does in 2.0 - I might not be hitting anything with it..

No, that wasn't it at all. The 30m cannon had a faster shell and had about as good a velocity as the 7.62mm machine guns. The problem was that it was much shorter range, it had incredibly terrible dispersion and it would overheat quickly. The C-6's "gimmick" was that it would out-DPS anything up to tier 5, but you had to be able to get close. You had to be really good to make the plane work, and that pissed some people off.

 

Then they changed the 30mm into a derp gun. It would basically inst-kill anything it touched at longer ranges, but they murdered its rate of fire. Now it is kinda in-between those two states.
