Might I say, this was my second battle in this plane, with the fully upgraded armament...

It feels like the difference between the A-1 and the A-5 is like the difference between a really well-sharpened butter knife and a throwing axe... Or a longsword... or a Cutlass...

 

All I can say is I paid attention to what SpiritFoxMY said about the plane and I now see why he loves this plane to bits.

 

I have to say the test flights for the A-5 so far have been a...

 

At this rate I will start believing in this plane, I might keep it myself.

Lots of people are quite fond of the 190s, and I understand why... but personally, I found their stall mechanics rage inducing.
I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

Hmm, I'd say the A-5 is the most fun of the Focke-Wulf 190's. The A-1 is average, which leads to it struggling against enemy aircraft without a bit of an edge on them. The 190 D suffers a bit due to its ability to fight tier 8 planes, which will almost always take it out with incredible ease, but otherwise it's pretty strong when you have a lot of boost and can get your guns on target.

 

The A-5 though, you get 4X20mm cannons at tier 6 and they don't overheat instantly, what's not to love? You even get a couple 13mm MG's as a bonus, pretty devastating plane when you fly it right. I still remember when I flew it I would attack tier 7's without much fear, it was awesome!

The A-5 is probably the best Fw 190 variant relative to the tier...

 

...although it doesn't lend well to my preferred mode of combat...



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.

Is fighting in Tier 5 & 6 really considered seal clubbing?

The clan emblem is literally two dudes clubbing a seal.

To be fair, XBBX doesn't really have much of a presence in WoWP, as far as I know im the only clan member that plays it like I have. XBBX was at one point in the top 50 clans of WoT IIRC, I joined 'em on the tail end of that era, but I learned a good deal from the guys there. :P

 

Though I'm not gonna lie, its really fun to club seals, especially when they are bots that don't know any better and don't whine afterward. :trollface:
