I finally scared up the credits to buy the Ki-84 and I'm wondering what it will be like?  I think I liked the Ki-43-I.  I HATED the Ki-43-II.  I'm OK with the Ki-61, but that's a different animal.  I've heard good noises about the Ki-84.  It looks like the first upgrade will be to replace 12.7s with 20s so I have all 20mm cannons and the aim will be consistent, and less temptation to overheat the guns.  


Specialist: SPAD S.510, P-40, MiG-3, A5M1, XP-44

the 84 in my opinion is one of finest aircraft in the Japanese line.  Guns are awsome the air frame is upgraded from toliet paper to a beer can :izmena: youll enjoy it immensely.

The Ki-84 is an absolute beast, its guns hit like hammers, it flies high and turns on a dime. The 30s are a little tricky to use in a tight turning fight but you'll get the hang of them

The guys above are right on. The ki-84 is a beast. Decent speed and also decent altitude band, at least when compared to the Reppu. And, of course, it can out turn just about anything in its tier. The guns are just spectacular, but you have to be careful not to overheat them. As awesome as the ki-61 is, the 84 makes it look like a pile of junk. The ki-84 is one of the quickest turning and most fun to fly planes in the game. I've really liked the ki line so far, it keeps getting better as you go up the line. The tier 6, 7, and 8 planes are some of the best in the game and they're just pure fun.

Ki-43-ll is a load (IMO), it might be better specialized, but i wasn't about to find out. Thanks to this thread i moved up, WOW, what a difference..... thanks folks.

I am relatively new to WoWp and once I realized that the Japanese lines fit my playing style, I targeted the Ki-84 Hayate as my main plane. I ground all the way up to it, and I don't regret it. My only complaint is the speed in some matches where I can't get to the battles and sectors quickly enough. I Specialized it a couple of months ago, emphasizing speed for both the plane and pilot. I then decided to add the Ki-94-II to my hangar just to have a Tier VIII. It is fine, but not quite the gem that the Tier VII is.

 

On the way up, I liked every plane except the K-43-II (every plane line has its dog), and I also kept the Ki-61.

61 and 84 are both keepers, but both have different flight/fight styles

 

SFMY said it best, and it's so true...  the 61 flies just like a 109e

 

or another 109, i can't remember      annoying

I think you mean the 109F, but comparing stats, it looks to be much more in line with the Spit V.

I like the 61, but I tire quickly of TnB.  I find that style of play very boring.  My goal is to get to the 162.  It's a Salamander, no matter what designation it wears.  German planes are more my thing anyway.  I enjoyed the 43, and the 61 has been more of the same.  I will grind through both 84s until I get the 162.  I have been spending a lot of quality time at T9 with the P.1092, and have sort of fallen in love with it.  But maybe the 162 at T9 can break the spell...

You should re-visit the 109Z then I think. You might find a mix of both. At least I did.

I just bought back the Ki-61 (sold it to afford the I-94-II). When I played it before, I was grinding up to the Ki-84. But, I only recently realized how comfortable I am flying the Ki-61. Luckily is was 50% right now. I'm working on Specializing it these days. I also recruited a new pilot for it (the original is in the barracks waiting for me to buy the Ki-94-II again) and he needs skills.
