I just paid full price in the premium shop for a t4 Russian GA the LBSh.  It wasn't in a deal or bundle.  Its an ugly plane I never herd of and never wanted.  For those who have read my posts before you already know that I mostly play American planes and I haven't even paid full price for the American premiums that I do want.  Special planes that are only offered for a limited time, sure, but never a premium that you can get any time for gold.  I just wait till I get the gold from events and get them that way.  So why did I spend money on a plane that I didn't even want?  Its because premium pilots need premium planes.

 

I purchased the 3 female pilots the last time they were available and they were worth every penny.  The Russian girl is a GA pilot.  Her special skill is setting ground targets on fire.  Just sweep your guns across tents and watch them burn than turn your guns on armoured targets and they burn too.  I already had the il-2(mod) t5 premium.  Now with the t4 LBSh premium I can have my pilot trained on the top tech tree Russian GA that I own and have the same pilot fly all 3 planes.  As you move up the tech tree just retrain the pilot for the next plane.  Its the only GA pilot you need.  Why train 3 pilots for GA when you only need 1.  If you have an IL-40 you can fly at all 3 levels for daily missions with one pilot.  Since you are not spreading it out over 3 pilots it means that the 1 pilot gets all the xp and therefore skill points.  You end up with 1 high skill pilot flying all 3 planes instead of 3 mediocre pilots flying 3 planes.  Unfortunately the other countries don't get the same advantage.

 

The German girl is a heavy pilot with appropriate special skills.  At t4 there is the bf 110 C-6 but there is no premium T5 German heavy.  In fact there is no level 2 (t5-7)German heavy at all.  There is a special plane at T5 the me 210 but its not available all the time if ever.  If it was a premium instead of a special people who bought the premium pilots would pay full price for it the same way I paid for the LBSh.  

 

The American pilot is even worse off.  At least the German girl has the chance if the special plane ever comes around.  The American girl is a multi role pilot. Of all the premium and special American planes that are available at all tiers there is only a single lowly t2 multi role.  There needs to be a premium T4 American multirole and a premium t5 American multi role that will use her skills effectively.  I would love to have her flying my t5 F4F but she is occupied with my t9 F84.  What I need is premium planes so she can fly at all 3 levels like the Russian girl.  If WG wants to make money they could turn the 1 purchase of premium pilots into 7 purchases,  the premium pilots plus the 6 premium planes.  They just need T4 and T5 premium planes for each of the 3 girls

You might be able to use the Fw 190 A-8 as a surrogate German heavy fighter while the American XP-75 takes advantage of increased boost and has a pair of 500lbs.You may want to just forgo one advantage in order to take full advantage of the another one.

 

Remember, cross-class penalty is not in effect in WoWP.



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.

The Soviet female pilot's Special ability that lights buildings on fire does not work on armored buildings. That was one of the 2.0.5 changes. Now you can only light soft buildings on fire with the ability, anything else is random fires from gunfire
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

that's a good tip.  I do use my American girl in all my premium American fighters because of the increased boost but that's mostly just for training purposes.  I get the daily 2x just because its more experience for her to get her skill points up.  The really special skill for the American girl is the valkeryie strike though that's why she is in my f84.  Doubling the damage on all those rockets is amazing.  The 2 tiny tims become 1000lb bombs with rocket motors plus 12 hvars all with double damage reek havoc on ground targets.  I can flip a mine in a single pass.  That's why I mentioned the f4f because it has an all rocket armament too.   The skill does work with bombs but its the size of the payload that matters and not dealing with a mixed payload of bombs and rockets makes bonus selection on equipment better.  the F4f has the highest bomb/rocket payload in T5 besides bombers and the f84 has the largest payload in the top tiers of anything.

 

As far as the German goes the problem is that its at a bad tier.  at t7 you have to fight tier 8s that are one level up.  I keep talking about t4 and t5 because they are the best tiers in level 1 and 2.  T4 is the only level 1 that gets achievements and t5 is a great level 2 because you get to pick on level 1 t4s.  with the Russian girl the il2mod is the best t5 GA plane in the game and its an iconic one at that.  The il40 is the best GA at the top tier and the LBSh could be debated that it is the best GA at t4 but is for sure the best with the premium pilot.  Germany is part way there.  The c-6 is my favorite t4 heavy and the me262 is so iconic and has the biggest best top tier guns and that's perfect for the German girls skills.  Its not just about having premium T4 and T5 is about the best and most iconic at the tier

there is one down side to the premium plane premium pilot combo.  It makes planes of that class from other nations irrelevant.  I had a t5 stuka that was specialist with full ultimate equipment and full calibration.  That was a great plane and I liked it so much more than the Russian il2 even though the il2 is arguably the better plane.  the il2(mod) with premium pilot converted me though.  Its not because of the turret either I could care less about the turret.  Its because its a premium with the added crew bonus and the pilots special skills.  I ended up disassembling all that ultimate equipment on the stuka that I worked so hard for to use the parts for other planes because I never use the stuka anymore.  even if they had an American GA line it would be a tough call but I still think I would use the Russian.  I cant believe I just said that.....ewwww.

The German girl rocks it with ANY German heavy fighter.  Not just T4-5.  All I need is a 10-skill premium gunner....

I agree.  right now I have her trained on the t6 me410 and use her the t4 bf 110c-6.  If I get the dornier this month it will give me all 3 levels that way.  Its just not working through the tech tree like the Russian girl.  All 3 girls are kick [edited].  I just prefer t4, t5, and t8, planes for the 3 levels.  T8 is kind of weird though.  The t9 planes seem a lot better generally but it seems you are more likely to face t10 because there is no higher tier for them to face.  Right now I'm having a lot of fun with the t9 F84b and F94d.  I like the all rocket armament on the f84b a lot more than the xp72 and its mixed payload and there is nothing else like the F94d.  I only have the t8 me 262 but everyone seems to like the t9 there as well.  When I get there I think I will like the t9 il40 more than the t8 il20.  The il20 is soooo ugly lol.  Maybe I should say I prefer t4, t5, and level 3 planes... for game purposes anyway.
