The Ki-84 has been a joy.  I don't like how slow it is, but I am still having fun.

 

My goal is the Salamander at T9.  I have not been flying the Ki-84 enough, and should do it more.  I quickly tire of turnfighting (I find it boring as hell), but the taste of salty Spitfire tears keeps me going.  I really need to turn these guys into speed build aircraft, so that transit between capture points is faster.

Of the Ki planes Id have to say absolute fav is the Ki-61 its a way underrated plane and I find most players don't know how good it is when they see it in battle.

 

The Ki-84 is a beast to behold, I dont play it as much cause my favorite tier is 6 so its gets less play time.

 

The Ki-88 is way more fun than I expected when I picked it up way back when I first started playing I like it almost as much as the 61. The 37mm wrecks once you get it on target and for a Japanese plane it has decent altitude performance.

 

Lastly maybe some of you guru's on here can recommend pilot skills for these 3 planes assuming the pilot has 8 points

You need to see them coming.  And if you can see them first, it's easier to set up your attack.

I've been very late to the Ki line, they've been not that great really.

The turn is good but slow & fragile with limited firepower & altitude.

Not that the A6M line has been any better, arguably worse as I think the Ki are a bit quicker.

 

But the Ki-84, this thing is a beast & definitely a keeper.

Its got good altitude, speed is not amazing but quite reasonable & those 30mms oh those 30mms :playing:


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

it's cheap and effective       that and MM1 are my set-in-concrete first skill options      everything else becomes negotiable after that

 

WG pilot skill shuffles are upcoming, we were told a while back        i'm not happy about that
