I will have to try fly mine more, got mine free a few months ago. I  find myself playing the lower tiers more often because of low player numbers most days.

You can actually BnZ - boost and Zoom - with this plane.  I am able to go after a Spit and climb out of range via boost before he can get around on me. It just takes patience.

It came with one of the 2.0 launch promotions.
I think the corsair or alienware bundle.

You are not able to understand what you read, that's for sure. I was talking about "i play low tiers, because of the low player numbers in high tiers".

And I am saying it's not seal clubbing.

lol.. the 302. The most broken plane in the game when it was originally released. There was nothing really special about it, except for the fact that you could reach higher altitudes than any other plane in the game, and that included everything in tier 10. I remember testing that thing and getting it to 18,500 feet, which was insane even in 1.9.  If you were leading in supremacy back in 1.9, all you had to do was go for the sky and nothing was ever going to get that high to get you. :-)

So, is it still "broken" or not? "Broken" meaning OP or UP?

Someone was asking about the 302 and the Lagg-3 Series 34.  I flew both of them during my steam last night.  They are both great planes in their own respects.  Each requires its own play style.

Broken = hilariously OP in one or more aspects.

 

I don't even know if I've flown it in 2.0. Maybe once??? Not sure.  But, it's altitude capabilities, rate of climb, and straight line acceleration were ridiculous in 1.9. BUT... it did/does have lousy guns that overheat quickly, made of paper, and prone to fire. Plus, if you do get someone on your tail, and you are out of boost, well....it don't turn worth anything.

"Broken" can mean either, it's a catch-all for a hilariously unbalanced thing. In this case overpowered.

 

Thus far, from what a few friends who have the 302 have told me. The speed and altitude is absolutely insane, however, it's inferior to the Meteor in pretty much every other aspect leading to a general recommendation of it being a really fun plane and a plane that you can uptier safely. However if you want to break tier 7 matches then the Meteor is a better purchase overall (and even then it's not terribly overpowered.)

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

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

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

  The one thing I found with the Lagg is it's by far the best sniper I've played yet, it's kind of funny firing once every few seconds and seeing half the HP of a plane 1000m away disappear with each hit. Not a bad plane but it's firepower is underwhelming if you let that 30 overheat.
