+1 for the recommendation, but i'm out of up votes today... sorry

 

i'm a new bomber fan, as i'm back on cold medication, thanks to my wife...  and LFs are just beyond my competency level while using cold meds

 

bombers don't require the same amount of situational awareness for me, so i added the Do 17z to my hangar today!

 

 

 

Well, I play Bombers and GAAs almost exclusively right now, as I don't have a good enough frame rate and/or a fast enough computer to play any Light Fighters or Multiroles(except maybe the Demon or Skua, but I don't have those) and barely any Heavy Fighters.

 

It's a shame, too, as I have gotten many lovely Light Fighters from the bonus codes, but thanks to my computer's performance, I can't play them effectively.

 

I'm onto my first Tier V, the JU-88A(but I've played every other class at Tier V before, thanks to yet more bonus code premiums). However, I still own my Do 17 Z. It was too much fun to get rid of,and besides, it's a very strong plane for it's Tier, as you have likely discovered.


Remember, remember the 14th of... June, the day of patch 2.05.  Some say it's great end-game content, some say it's horrible, but history will always recall which it actually was.

I would say my favorite T4 is the BSh-2, people never see you coming :trollface:.

 

Extremely slow though, so... you might want to prepare a meal while you're cruising around the map to your next area.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

yep, i've discovered!    i'm loving that T4 Do-17z...   

 

in general, bombing just doesn't have the chills/thrills factor that LFs have, but i'm certainly helping my team in a measurable, repeatable manner 

 

well, not when i was beginning, but now that i know what i'm doing (or should be doing)

Like there are any real choices in 2.junk

T4 Japan

Spits T5 through T8,

FJ-1 T9

Sabre T10 

 

But does it really make any difference when WG resets stats at each patch...

A6M1 is my favorite tier 4. But I don't spend much time at this low of a tier and will be selling the plane after I get through it.

I think my absolute fav is now definitely Hurricane I.

 

Partly because I got it free from a crate along with a pretty neat paint scheme.

But I'm really enjoying playing it.

 

I have it on a fighter setup, no bombs.

You don't want to get in a turn fight vs a player in a Spit/Zero etc and its got poor altitude performance so you can't go hunting Bombers.

Its not really quick enough to BnZ but its relatively fast for T4 & has 10sec boost.

But it can be a very effective TnB fighter mainly because the 8* MGs rip stuff apart really quick at tier.

Its excellent at anti-GA & anti-Heavies if they come too low.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

I love my 109, it is a joy to fly. I'm sure others out perform it with the low alt fur ball meta, but it is beast when you get matches with plenty of heavy fighters and bombers so you can stay high.

Oddly enough the Bsh-2 has a higher top speed than a fully equipped IL-2 (t). It's also faster than the Fw 189 C.

 

In my case I think I'll also have to hand it to the Bsh-2. Great weaponry for the tier, and ok-ish top speed and handling for a GAA. And best of all, I have a camo for it for being a Beta tester, and it's not bad! :great:

This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Yeah I tried it with that setup but lack of range hurt pretty bad & the 20mm setup has better dps as well as range.

Not finding it quite as fun as the Hurricane I though.

Oddly enough I found the Hurricane I to be lacking in comparison to the II. It handles well, but it's either flying or stalling, no in-between "watch it buddy, you're slowing down too much" :sceptic:

So how are you going to complete lower tier missions if you sell it?

I absolutely adore the p-36 Hawk, American tier 4 fighter.
It has 2 12.7mm and 4 7.62mm. It has good manuverability and can sustainably fire. it can't kill many ground targets, but its not supposed to.

For some reason (*koff*hanger space *koff*) I don't keep any tier 4s besides the premium I207/4 which I cordially dislike. But if I were to go back and get one keeper it would be either the F2A Buffalo or the Bf110B.

 

I do wish WG would release a Finnish Buffalo skin

WG won't due to the appearance of the national insignia, it is too similar to a swastika, but I did one for the Buffalo a few years back. http://hawkeyededic.wixsite.com/hawkeyesrepaints/f2a-f2a-1
