What's odd is the P-40 definitely outperforms but for some reason the Wildcat is the plane I get outstanding battles in. Got 19k experience in the battle that caused me to write this topic. Now I've probably just jinxed myself....

 

I agree, some great games in my F4F and I would've never expected them. I would share a screenshot but cant figure out how to do it. :facepalm:

Those are my findings as well...

 

On paper, the P-40 dominates... however, in the sky, it's the F4F that really shines.

I never could make the Wildcat work. I've had some great games in the P40 but never in the F4F... :/

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

Ah yes, thanks fox.  I would love the F8F in game as well; may make a nice T6. 

 

The F6F Hellcat would probably be the tier 6, The F8F would land in either tier 7 or tier 8.

 

Sorry to make it seem like you're on a roll with your American planes. :teethhappy:
