so, I just got the 262, and got the airframe first to get the 4 30mms.  But it seems to be underwhelming at this point.  Is it going to get better or is it just a slog till I can get to T9?

The 262 is so very off the meta right now it's as if those Yaks et al. are taking their revenge on them. The MK 108 at high speed is an extremely unreliable weapon.

 

If you don't do well in 262 after a while, just stop there, the HG2 is just more of the same thing (The revolver 30mm is of little improvement if you are not already familiar with the old MK 108).



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.

There are other lines I can pursue.  Thanks.

The 262 is very difficult to get good with because the guns are difficult to use and because of the disparity between your speed and everyone else's, you typically have less than 2 seconds to aim. It's very good at downing bombers and patrolling high altitude to take out heavy fighters, but other than that, it's pretty difficult to fly well.

The 262 is one giant pile of crap right now. Don't bother.

I just want some Italian fighters already, especially the series 5 interceptors.

The 262 is not good until it gets fully upgraded.  Not sure how it is in 2.0 as I have not run mine in a while.  The HG2 and HG3 are powerful and I love flying them but again, not sure how they do in 2.0.  Collect them all.  

 

I have been flying mostly fighters and GA since 2.0 came out

Me262 suffers from - ironically - many of the same problems it suffered historically; ineffective anti-fighter armaments and the inability to manage speed effectively. The plane cannot slow down without risking death, but the guns fire so slowly, with such low velocity shells and at such short range (lower than the regular 20mms) that killing fighters with it is nigh impossible without exceptional risk.  Its a phenomenal bomber hunter but not much else...

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

no damage no experience so the gun must be the first

this plane is a bit of similar to game playing of J8M
