Had a bit of fun in the quirky little tier 7 premium Russian Ramjet, the Kostikov 302. Funny plane this - its engines are like the J8M; its totally reliant on boost to keep from stalling out of the sky, accelerates like a bat out of hell and maintains speed magnificently. The REALLY funny thing about the plane is that when I first tried it out, I actually thought it was a Russian Meteor - a tier VII early jet. Boy was I surprised at how it really worked. But the plane is fun. Its boost regenerates really quickly (like the J8M) which makes up for its dependence on it and the low amount of boost time. It is more maneuverable than the Japanese rocketplane and has much more accurate, much more reliable guns.

 

Historically, the 302 is an interesting "might have been" of aviation. Its basically the culmination of all those Soviet ramjet experiments of the inter-war years that birthed planes like the I-15bis DM-2 and the I-153 DM-4 you find in Warplanes at tiers 3 and 4; the little booster jets taken to their logical extreme. For more about the history of this plane, visit: http://ourairports.biz/?p=6458

 

In summary - its a really interesting gimmick plane. But its some gimmick.

So, its been a bit since I posted my videos here... but there are videos :P

 

1. A tight game in the 190 A-5 with trikke. I resorted to scumbag behavior at the end and lawndarted when I made a mistake in my engagement against the enemy I-210 20 seconds before the squall.

 

2. And another bomber vid. There were complaints on Discord by some EU people that the AA changes had rendered bombers useless and I wanted to see for myself...

 

3. An oopsie moment when I was too busy playing TerraGenesis on my phone to notice that trikke had hopped into a tier 7 while I was sitting in a tier 8. Much apologizing ensued

 

4. Aaaand this one started with a lot of salt. We'd just been screwed over by the MM a game before and I was not in a good mood going in. A mood that wasn't improved when I saw our opposition. And got worse as the game progressed until... well... do you believe in BotJesus?

 

5. Lastly for now! A close® game during Escort Mode. Flying in the P.1099B-2 with Neblin, grinding out the Ju86E and the Ground Attack second tier mission for the crate. The enemy team put up the hardest fight I saw from the defenders all day.

HEY ITS THAT GUY WITH A LOAD OF STOOPID VIDEOS :P

 

1. First flight in the 1102B tier X German Ground Attack. I posted this elsewhere on the forums earlier but here it is :P

 

2. A quick fight at tier 8 in the Pfeil. At least trikke doesn't get downtiered this time :P

 

3. A two on two at tier ten. What madness is this? Another tier X game in the 1102B with H4m5ter. A decent result but I still need to learn to GAA

 

4. A first flight in the Ki-94-I; the giant slug of a machine with an awful reputation against one of the best pilots on the server. It was a surprising match to say the least.

 

5. Another first flight - in the Hs129A tier 4 premium that's just come with Flaming Shores. The little duckling isn't a very good GAA but I found it pleasant to fly at any rate

 

6. Flying a Dora into the force of Spitfires. It was a heck of a fight

More new stuff!

 

1. My first He-111 H-2 video! I was trying to get a good video of the plane and the game hadn't been cooperating; black screens, ctds and random disconnects so I was pre-tty salty by the time I recorded this. And the enemy team list didn't help. (Warning: considerable swearing involved)

 

2. And another in the line of "SpiritFox is salty". This game actually came before the Heinkel one above and was the last game of a losing streak where my cousin simply couldn't get his Starfire to perform. My recording borked out and didn't record my increasingly passive-aggressive saltiness as he struggled to get his Starfire to behave, while I struggled to carry him.

 

3. An, IMO, much better video of the Heinkel He-111 H-2 than the one above; a solo battle with a tier 3-4 matchmaking. Lots of humans, including a Bf110B who kept headhunting me throughout the match

 

4. And another Duckling video which, again, I thought was a better show of the airplane than the previous video. Once more solo, this time downtiered into a tier 4-5 match.

 

5. It took me a while to decide to finally post this up - mostly because it's an awful mess of a battle with Reitousair carrying me across the finish line. I preferred a video of an earlier, much more composed and coordinated victory in the 190A-5/I-210, but Escort battles took so long that my Instant Replay function missed almost five minutes of a twenty two minute game. This match was similar, but the recording only missed the opening screen and countdown so nothing major was missed.

 

6. I caught some flak for this - I was incredibly proud about the fact that trikke and I carried a match in a downtiered game against a Specialist Spitfire one tier higher, an F4U-1 one tier higher, and a Spitfire I and Specialist IL-2 at the same tier when our own human teammates consisted of an AFK 109E and a Stuka pilot who insisted dogfighting instead of trying to cap. Apparently, that kind of match is unremarkable because we were a Specialist Emil and Specialist SE100 flight so carrying a two-vs-one downtiered match is nothing special.

 

I'll leave judgement to whoever watches.
