I'm slightly disappointed that you say an Me209A buzzing around within 5 degrees for your unicorn and didn't turn to take a potshot :trollface:

 

You killed hit with your gunner after so I guess that's fair

 

Well, this video might be more to your liking. Decided to get a video on my second specialist plane, the Ju 88 P. It's... better, but that's about it. Kinda sad that I couldn't really make it really good, but at least I'm done with the grind for it and can just play it normally :bajan::

After a rather disappointing run with the Ar-2 I got out of the lootboxes, I decided to do one last game until Summer Storm kicked in, and my plane of choice was the IL-8. Little did I know the adventure that awaited me :ohmy::

Heh. Nice game against a devastating duo. Good thing your teammate didn't manage to throw the game at the end

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

Btw, if you think your games in your Do 217M are short, you should see the ones in my Ar-2 :popcorn:

My last video for a while, as I go back into hiatus waiting for the Specialist changes :hiding::

Now that 2.0.7 got rid of the win requirements from the Specialist missions, I'll be cruising around with my GAAs again from time to time. And what better way to start things off than with a battle on the Magic School Bus, also known as the IL-20 :popcorn::

Now that we've got Bomber Escort up and running, I decided to record a few battles. And while at it I remembered I haven't flown my IL-10 in a while, so why not kill two Bombers with one 30mm shell? :P:

And here's another video, this time on the Me P.1099 B-2 with the top 30mm cannons. I've started to like these guns quite a bit. They're not as great for ground pounding, dealing noticeably less damage than the single 50, but it allows me to shotgun fighters if they get too close for comfort :playing::

New map, new layout, same old shenanigans. This might be one of the most odd asymmetric layouts for a map we've seen in a while, with only one Mining Facility, one Command Center and one Military Base. Which of these sectors will prove to be the most unbalanced? :popcorn:

What do we do with a drunken bot plane? What do we do with a drunken bot plane? What do we do with a drunken bot plane later in the tech tree? Well, I just shoot it down with quad 30s. If it's not obvious, this was NOT serious gameplay nor should be used as an example of how to fly a GAA :hiding::

The Hs 129 B, also known as the Duck. It's infamous for being an extremely subpar GAA for its tier. However, it does have a few tricks up its sleeve, but will those tricks be enough to keep this memeplane in the skies? Let's find out :popcorn::

Surprisingly to many people, I really dislike Bombers, and I feel they dislike me back. It's not much a problem with them, but I can never seem to get them to work, even when I "do everything right". However, the tier 5 and 6 Soviet bombers are different; they can divebomb. That little change in dynamics allowed me to get a proper hold of this aircraft, which means there'll be more videos of this thing and, most likely, its follow-up model :great::

Still grinding the Pe-2 to unlock the Pe-2 M-82. I'm slowly getting a better hang of how to divebomb in it, though I'm still making a few mistakes here and there. But as long as I can literally Boom and Zoom, I don't really have an issue with learning more :great::

Trying out the Ju 88 P in 2.0.5, I feel like overall the plane performs slightly worse than before. Lower health since my +hp equipment isn't fully upgraded, and it won't be for a while. Reargun is weaker with the shorter range, so I lose damage on incoming enemies. Gun accuracy is lower as I miss out on the +accuracy equipment until I can get specialist. Rate of fire on the big gun is supposedly faster, but not nearly enough to make a difference. I can also use universal ammo, except I'm not lighting targets on fire anytime soon with such a slow gun, and I can't even put it on my reargun until I get Specialist. There's just so many things locked behind specialist that makes me not really want to fly the poor plane. Good thing I got lucky with the 50mm cannon this time around :amazed::

The plane does seem slower and i dont see any speed difference in the cannon. Very slow but man if you hit a plane with it they go poof in 2 shots.Trying to head on a junkers 88 is pure suicide as the first shot will rip chunks off your plane and the second one will vaporize it. Pretty sure I got a few il2's in 2 shots last night.

It can actually one-shot a few planes if you don't get a crit that absorbs the damage. Though other GAAs will take a couple of shots unless they're damaged already. With the recent buffs it's noticeably faster, but overall the plane is still rather lackluster for actual ground pounding because the gun takes so long to destroy a single armored building :sceptic:

With WoWP having a relatively low population, it's not rare to see familiar faces from time to time. However, I very much prefer when they're on my side of the map than on the enemy's, especially when they gave me a hard time in a previous battle :teethhappy::

Among the planes I got during Flaming Shores is the Ki-94-I Japanese Heavy Fighter. It packs a nasty punch, with twin 30s and twin 37s firing all at once, but that seems to be the extent of its remarkable stats. The handling is subpar and the ordnance even more so, so I don't fly it much and rarely score a win. However, somehow I managed to record my best battle so far on the thing :amazed::

I upgraded from the Pe-2 to the Pe-2 M-82 some time ago. Not an amazing upgrade, but a welcome one nonetheless. I basically play it in the same fashion, though this time around I might have been a bit too distracted and didn't quite stick to my usual divebombing all the way through :rolleyes::

Another video on the Me 265. This little plane still has quite a few surprises for me to discover, but since I've advanced through the German GAA line I haven't really flown it as often anymore. That said, it still performs as well as ever :bajan::

So what do you do when you have a bunch of bombers that need to get somewhere to carpet bomb the hell out of it? You get another bomber to get them there! Wait... there's something off there :sceptic::
