Well, seems like this thread is very dead and is effectively outdated as the last guide was posted pre-2.0.5, which changed a LOT of things, guess I'll try and hijack it a bit with post-2.0.5 stuff.
 

Going to do a slight reformat, however.

 

Name of plane:

 

Recommended (minimum) skill level: 

Availability/How to Obtain:

 

Tech tree plane(s) that flies/fights similarly:

 

Equipment slots:

Consumable slots:

 

Pros:

 

Cons:

 

Opinion/Overall review: 

[DISCLAIMER] Keep in mind that I'm referring to my experiences, your mileage can very well vary, especially on harder to fly planes with niche playstyles.

I'm going to restrict this list to tier 6+ planes (though I might have a couple <tier 6 planes) due to me not flying many premiums below tier 6.

I will also only go over premiums I own and have flown for more than ten battles.

 

Equipment and consumables have enough choices that various people use that I will leave that to preference, though hopefully my descriptions in tandem with knowing what slots are available will give you an idea of what you want to put on.

 

Also, I'm gonna make separate posts for each nation for the sake of edit-ability if I come back to this project because having each nation in one post will be a pain to edit.

Alright, phew, finally got all of my tier 6+ premiums written up about to some extent. I'll have to do some proofreading later to fix some inconsistencies and grammar but for now, I'm done.

 

Do feel free to add your own, this thread has been dead for quite a while but may prove useful for people if it gets new guides for post-2.0.5 content.

 

Also, if you have any questions do ask, especially with some of the terminology I use which may not be clear to some people.

Vampire vs. Horten?

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

Hmm, may I ask for clarification here? Not sure if you mean a comparison or the match-up between them.

Received clarification from elsewhere: I would say the Vampire is the superior aircraft. It wins more match-ups than the Horten thanks to the far superior maneuverability, and similar speed.

I don't, but, hopefully others can help revive this thread with more relevant (post-2.0.5) information about premium aircraft.

So how would you rate P-51K earnings vs Tu-1?

 

I'm kinda wanting to buy a 2nd T7 during current discount & I've recently repurchased P-51D, specialised it up & been quite enjoying tearing around with Ultimate gear so I quite like the idea of doing that but earning like the Tu-1.

 

I wanted to get the VB 10 but nobody seems to have much positive to say about it & I don't want to buy a mediocre plane thats not much fun to fly.

I'll let Rei know of your question but personally - get the Tu-1. It's a powerful meme machine and you'll end up earning more simply by virtue of murdering everyone - something which the P-51K can't match.

I have the Tu-1 its very good, earns very well.

But its not really the sort of thing I can spam & spamming the Vampire for Silver is getting a bit too repetitive so I want to get another high-tier Premium & am too cheap for a T8.

I love the vb-10.   

Fly it every time I get to T7, but I just bought the Tu-1 so it getting all the love currently


Only 4 battles in the Tu-1 so far, but the raw numbers are way above my average stats so far

 

Tupolev Tu-1
6 4 16 0
 
Aerial Targets Destroyed 7.33 44
Ground Targets Destroyed 0.00 0
Damage Caused to Aerial Targets 3,017.30 18,103
Damage Caused to Ground Targets 0.00 0

I believe Tu-1 and P-51K have similar credit multipliers, only bombers/GA make notably less (even when prems) iirc.

 

However P-51K is also a lot harder to rack up high scores in and thus you'll generally be making less credits for similar amounts of work.

Well I've been scoring well & enjoying the D so I think this is going to be what I'll buy.
