l wonder if it would be practical in WWOP?

 

Especially the Merlin XX model with 1480 hp. (lt did 304 mph with 1030 HP @17,00 ft.)

 

The 4 x.303 in the turret could be fired 360 deg as a nite fighter it excelled in the MK II version.

Ah well l just thought it was kinda a cool unique British fighter and might be ok in low tiers.

With controlling gunner disabling plane maneuvering for the most part, it is doubtful whether it can work to its full potential.

 

But 4x.303 is a proven weapon on the Beaufighter...it might *just* work as a very gimmicky plane...



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

It proved to be a terrible day fighter but it worked really well as a night fighter against bombers. Give it the performance to get up to and stay with the bombers in 2.0 and it could be a good but limited plane.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Well the key to the BP was if the pilot took the plane into a downward spiral, the enemy plane couldn't get on the tail easily but the gunner could do it's job.  In WoWP I don't think that would work as there seems to be some aim assistance that would negate such tactics.

They should really add more modes, night-fighting modes are necessary as a lot of planes in game use radars

I wouldn't say alot Ein. Looking at Tier 10, the only one I can see that has Radar, is the Gloster Javelin. If they added other aircraft like the De Havilland Sea Vixen, then that would be a different story. The Sea Vixen was a twin seat naval fighter with an Air Intercept Radar.

As for Nightmode: I like the idea but, given how rare Radar was (back in the day), it may be hard to pull off. It's already hard at certain hours just to play Tier 6 (due to no one in the que)
