okay it's alright I'm trying  boom and zoom right now on my mustang A but like my corsair I'm  focusing on picking off targets that can't out turn me like multi roles or heavy fighters I try to stay away from other fighters unless their focus on a bot or another player then I get on their tail and shoot them down. i don't have the p47b yet I have it researched. all I need to do is grind the credits  to get it. 

 

I remember a game where I was "uptiered" and the reds had 2 P 38's which I shot down all game long with the P 51b at T6.

P-38s should eat P-51s all day long.

1st and foremost if I am not covering something you want to see, then I have to know that. I get remarkably little feedback on what you all want to see. One of my favorite B&Z was the F7F Tigercat. Right now I'm a bit stymied because I hate flying the Me 262 and that stinking gun. Mostly I hate that gun. I may have to buy my way out of it and I hate that more. So I've been stuck on that for a while. I rather liked the Me 109Z. You can not be a content provider and not have a thick skin. Unless and until I start getting insults directed at me I don't take offense. So not only was I am not offended I took it as a "wake up Jeff," you have to do better coverage of the options.

 

If I am not covering what you want to see I am pleading with you, TELL ME! 

Mostly I've moved on from a lot of the lower tier planes, something I'm just starting to correct. Hence the KI 84 purchase. I've got 5 T9 planes that I have to bring up, and 4 more T8 and this is hard on the old silver pocketbook.

Well, I'm glad I could help, I guess.  LOL.

 

If you search for 2.0 videos, you can find eleventy hundred on the IL-40 and the Yak-30.  But heavy fighters of all stripes have many fewer than the other kinds.  Like when I was trying to decide on going past the Me-262 HGII.  I thought it was plenty - fast as heck, guns that would eat everything, high ceiling - good enough.

 

Then, I got downtiered against a pair of flighted Yak-30s, and was forced to try and take them on.  One T9 HF against two T10 LF is not an even fight.  I was working on getting the HGIII the very next battle.  But if I had been watching videos on how to fly it, I might have been inspired before then.  Yes, it is more of the same, but there is MORE.  And at T10, against T10, you need the "more".

 

So, to your Me-262 grinding:

 

You have played the Bf-109Z.  Therefore, you have experience with those 30mm guns.  In the 262, it's better, because the four guns are clustered in the nose.  That is nice because unlike the 109Z, your enemies have less chance of just flying through the shells unscratched.  That's what ticked me off about the 109Z - get in position, set up a firing pass, press the tit, and yell "FSCK!" as my enemy emerges unscathed.  With the 262, you yell "FSCK!" because the gun rate of fire is slow and the shells float sedately through the air, like lobbing balloons.

 

If you're interested in grinding these German heavies, a few things make your life easier:

 

Equip your cockpit with a sight, and your guns with gas-operated action.  The latter improves rate of fire, so that when you shoot, more shells come out.  The sight helps you get rounds on target.

 

Equip your pilot with Marksman I and Marksman II.  Anything that helps you to land shells on target is worthwhile.  If you have room for other equipment & pilot skills, I have gone with stuff to improve the turning ability of the aircraft.  It is already blazingly fast for tier, so improving the speed does little.  But helping the damn thing keep nose on-target (so you can lob more balloons) has value.  Add Aerodynamic Expert as a pilot skill, and you get even more turn out of your mounted equipment.  I always take two or three battle to remember how to fly the thing, but when I do re-learn how the shells fly, that plane will straight up wreck EVERYTHING at T8.  IL-20s melt.  Two gun overheat cycles and that pesky RB-17 is gone.  Bomber flights are tasty snacks. 

 

And the best part is that you have the engine to blow up that IL-20 then zoom into the heavens to zap that B-32 or RB-17.  The really great part is that you have the speed to stay out of the guns zone of the RB-17, so even that Sierra Hotel bomber pilot with the 12-point gunner is still meat on the table.

 

If you can train yourself to do almost everything in the vertical, and not use the horizontal, this plane will feast on most T8 stuff.  If you can figure out how to get shells on target, they will melt most aircraft in a single pass.  Oh, and they carry 1100lbs of bombs, if you need to finish something off.
