The pancake is back on stage to become the god it used to be!

 

With 2 air-to-surface missiles, and strong firepower & incredible turn rate, 

XF5U rips all other tier 8 planes including japanese Ki.

It can outturn a A6M5 and spitfire 1A, no kidding!

 

Prepare syrup dispenser, no grits, sausage patties and lettuce, let's make a pancake!

 

Yes, and it is still a heavy fighter

Is there an actual video to go with this public service announcement? Or is it just posted in the wrong section?

It climbs to meet bombers and rip them apart, it can tear through bomber flights in 1 pass...

 

Though I use the 1000lbers in mine...with Mary's divebombing skill it's like I get to taste how SC1000 could have been if it existed...



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.

No they won't, even spitfire can't take it down on 1v1 basis;

it's a light fighter BTW

I flew mine last night for the first time since 2.0 release.  I didn't tweak equipment or pilot skills, I just jumped in and flew... it was awesome.

I have taken down several pancakes with my spit.  Its not hard if you know what you are doing.  You can avoid being taken out, but you have to dedicate your match to avoiding someone who dedicates theirs to taking you out.

Heavy fighters should always remember to avoid turn fighting with light fighters, but pancake is less forgiving in this aspect.

That almost doesn't matter anymore, a smart player in a LF can now catch a HF easily.  They compressed the altitude bands a tad too much imho.

True but pancake stalls at 60Km/h, if someone headhunts you, just hit the air brake

until your speed decreases to 100Km/h, and you will outturn your opponent due to

smaller turning radius--in the worst case, I have forced human A7M to head on with me

and was able to take him down due to stronger firepower.

In that case, pancake is a 'F-14' in game since it still has maneuverability when most other

planes would have been stalled, & it has generally great turn rate at most speed ranges.

 

I shouldn't have said it lol, so many top secrets. :P
