I will eventually have a tier 4. What is the best kind of first tier 4 to get for missions? B&Z is not what it used to be at ALL, so I am thinking of a good T4 fighter or two.

 

The US takes forever to kill something, the USSRs are great but low on armor. Hmmm.... Thinking out loud here.... The tier 4 Bristol?

 

The 109B is great but flying it correctly (if that counts as much as it used to anymore) makes it a B&Z fighter and I am unsure if that helps a lot in this iteration of the game. Also, I kill a LOT of 109Bs in my lil mule, the I-16 (e).

While perhaps not the best place to put such a topic, the Bf-109 B is actually more of a hybrid BnZ/TnB; if you know what you can't outturn, you can outtrun it, anything you can't outrun, you can outturn it. It's fairly difficult to grasp the full potential of it compared to other planes, thus, yes, the Bristol 146 would be an excellent choice for getting missions done for fighters at tier 4.

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

Thanks, I was thinking along those lines also. I put this post here because the mission is for tier 4 and above.

A stand alone thread in the newbie section would have made more sense.

I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

Cool, but it is here. If I could delete, I would and then repost.

I-17,

Stay on the deck and shred anything that comes near

​Ya know, that's an EXCELLENT idea. That is exactly what I have done with the 1st 3 tiers in that line, and it does work.  Thanks!

German heavies work well (not for me) for a lot of folks.  There are three bombers on Tier IV.  I recommend them all.

 

Join a clan.  Learn stuff and have wingmates.

The US Tier IV (P-36) is a horrid grind until you get all the guns

then it's not so bad.

slasher, not turn fighter, and very good altitude for the tier, and that goes for the P-40 as well.

The P 36 is THE fighter in its tier.  Could kill almost all.

 


What we say to death?

Thanks all for replying.

 

I did get and start flying the I-17, and it is indeed a savager. Loving it.  I will look at the 36 also.
