i have done the missons for the XP55 ascender [edited];ENDER its a shocking plane tier 6 with only 4 .50cal/12.7mm bmg mg's it turns quite well but unless your using gold ammo it takes forever to kill anything it turns real well but thats it at tier six it firepower is the same a a tier 4 US fighter.if your going to cough up money for something get the certificates for the typhoon or tempest they are at least good planes or get some santa sacks but money for the Ascender not a chance go for the Vampire if you dont have it its a good tier 8 plane.

It has the exact same guns as the tier 6 P-51A... but turns like a Spitfire.

 

I get it, MGs aren't for everyone... that doesn't make the plane bad.

It has the turn speed of the Spit and Zero, the energy retention of the Mustang along with the speed of the Thunderbolt (without the boost reserve, of course).

Thanks, mad_dog you've validated my decision. 

I've always wanted a Vampire anyway, since I was a kid.They were in service at that time so I particularly like the design aesthetic.  Like the P-38s for the same reason.  Different from the rest and proud of it.  YT-watched a reworked two-seater Vampire at an all-jet air race in the U.S.  It kicked a*rs.

Well it did ok for me against this bot VDB605,  I'd a had him on the 7th turn if his teammate didn't kill me lol.

 

and it also handled this invisiBot A6M3 pretty well.

Granted it'll be harder to kill non-bots but I still like the little bugger.
