omg...  this is why i struggle     i run the same damn build on 90% of my planes

 

Which is fine if all your planes fly mostly the same, and/or do most of the same stuff.
Spoiler

But dont be afraid to experiment. 

I started my Do 335 tricked out to out turn anything with 2 or more engines. So i could expect to win most high alt engagements (because ima heavy fighter and thats what they do)
and now im in the process of stripping out the turning stuff (save it for a typhoon maybe) and going full Wild Weasel for [edited]and giggles.
(pretty much every thing on SpiritFox's build except a Polished Skin instead of a lightweight wing frame)

I know I know "Never go Full [edited]" but "its just game. why u hef 2 be mad?"

You can, in theory, outturn anything that has a lower roll rate, because you can reverse more easily, and if you have good energy retention, you won't bleed airspeed.  So, using roll, rudder and boost, you can get behind a guy, eventually.

Not true. I once put Lightweight Wing Frame on the Duckling and proceeded to fly the entire battle with all my control surfaces critted.

I know this isn't normal for this topic but I have question did they do something to the bombs reload speed on the b17g and the b32 they feel some what faster now.

Didn't notice any difference

Further update:

So i was working on that aforementioned Wild Weasel Build.
  • Strengthened Hardpoints. maxed out.
  • Gyroscopic Sight, Polished Skin. Advanced.
  • Up-Rated Engine, German. Also Advanced
  • Gas Operated Action, German. Improved


And while tinkering away in the shop i noticed some odd results.

A lot of this build has focused on Cruise Speed.

To the point where that speed clocks in at 720 km/h. Which is odd, given that my Maximum Boost speed is also 720km/h
I may need to switch some of those cruise bonuses off to other things now ...


Further Update.  tried out an Ultimate Aerodynamic Pylon. (Thank you christmas event :great:)
...and it looks like i M U S T C O N S T R U C T A D D I T I O N A L P Y L O N S because daaaaaammmm!
hello 800 kph.
Which is disconcerting.
because now the speed is approaching the max Dive of 950 Kph and the engine isnt fully upgraded yet.

Sure the bombs take longer to show up but as fast as im going it takes longer to turn this beast around.
Im gonna miss turnfighting MultiRole fighters. But only a little bit. Turnfighting with a sniper gun is not optimal.
