What aircraft should be at tier 7-10?

 

Seems like they had plenty of time to come up with 3 aircraft.  They hyped Albion via dangling these tech tree planes over our heads via missions.  I didn't get any tech tree plane missions so I was excited to check out the line. 

 

I know this game is not about Tier X.  I know...I know...I get that...but I end up grinding anyways...just seems like a line that stops at tier 6 is gonna be unsatisfying. 

 

Like you get to eat the crust but not the cream on top of the pie when you have heard about the cream and seen it on history channels and youtube vids and read about it in history books...WG FORGOT TO PUT HE CREAM AND CHERRY ON TOP!

Proposed planes are Tempest, Sea Fury, Sea Hawk and Hunter, they haven't released it but

said news say they will be released in the future. 

 

Just stock enough exp on Tornado so you can research the rest after they are released.

I don't care if these iconic UK aircraft are tech tree or Premiums. They belong in the UK's multi role line.

No Typhoon? I'd have sworn it would be in this line

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I agree, a Hawker line without Typhoon is like July the 4th without the Flag of the USA.

If putting Typhoon in T7 is too much to ask, at least put it parallel with the Tornado.

Typhoon could be a t7 premium

Maybe. But I think that's dumb - the Typhoon is far more iconic than the others. If they aren't introducing it in this line then the worst is about to happen : 

 

The Typhoon will be the British Ground Attack Aircraft

Typhoon has to be an optional route on this line, Tempest would be a much better premium.

Not at all. It took this long to get Hurricanes into the game, and Hellcats still aren't in, and that is the Allied top plane in the Pacific by far.  Why they leave iconic planes out, who knows, but I don't think it signifies anything

Tornado is a very, very good multirole for Tier VI.  If you have played the Corsairs you will fit in perfectly with her.

 

In general they behave very similar in flight but with slight changes.

- Corsair is faster.

- Tornado is more maneuverable.

 

20mm x4 cannons but the Corsair ones have slightly better effective range.

 

Where Tornado pulls ahead of the Corsair though?  Ordnance reload time.  Those rockets are back nice and fast.

Correct, very nice firepower at its tier, and more maneuverable, and remember  British Hispanos are way more accurate than

the M2/3 cannons, despite less range on data. The British HS V 20mm is super accurate, as accurate as the russian NR-23

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

Corsair also has faster roll rate, an often neglected parameter useful for quickly changing your course.

As are flaps and pitch up (while in a turn)

Yeah, I have no idea why WG put the Tornado in at Tier 6 instead of the Typhoon. Just doesn't make sense.

The Hawker Hunter is the iconic hawker plane for me, the entire line is nothing but hurdles to my hunter (yes she is mine).

Tempest is an Typhoon II.. but the Tempest V uses the Tornado's mounting, and cowling of the Centaurus IV.

 

So the Typhoon would come off the Hurricane II, the tornado should really be a premium, and the Tempest should come off the Typhoon.

Tempest II used the Centaurus mounting and cowling that was first tested on one of the Tornado prototypes.

 

Tempest V came first, and used the same Napier Sabre engine as the Typhoon. The primary difference was a new laminar flow wing.
