Girlfriend went to the park with her buddy, so I got to Fly on the 4th of July!  (with 2 hours of boosters)

 

Hs 129 A - Early AM battle to make progress on the weekly crate.  One of the few german GA I still need to qualify for Specialist.  I love this plane.  

 

F4U-4 - I didn't intend to fly USA, but this is conveniently what I needed to grind.  I did multiroling pretty well, for me.  

 

F-84B - Not as successful.  I felt slow which means I was poorly positioned in the battle most of the time.  

 

F7F - A decent heavy outing, by my standards.  Mounted the top engine.  Finally got a win with a McGuire.

 

Fw 252 - Finally got enough credits to equip and fly my Fw 252, for my first Tier X battle in any WG product.  First battle was futile, but the second was a Victory with Flying Warrior and completion of a 10 token mission.  This plane takes forever to shoot down enemies due to low hit percentage.  Mounted G-Suit, Lightweight Wing, Boost Enhancement.  Hit over 1000 kph.  :D  First battle got pilot to 100%, and second got enough XP for ADE.  I really want Marksman II due to the low hit percentage, but needed to go with ADE since I mounted manouverability equipment and I'm told ADE is stupid-broken.  Pleased that it was easier to use than the Ta 183.

I think you should be a little more concerned with your gf going to "the park" with a "buddy". 

I actually just got the 252 too and right out of the box top speed is 1000kph and Max dive 1100kph so it might work to put all equipment to the cruise speed and never fly below 500kph. 

It'll easily reach Max dive in a shallow dive anyway but the guns may be problematic. If I'm a flying brick I need to one pass things. At first I didn't like the 183 but after spec it's usable. Hopefully the 252 is like that. *Bonus* since nobody flies them you can surprise your enemies with what it can do.

Since bombers/heavies are going to be the main food of the Fw 252 and optimum time-on-target will be at a premium I was thinking of the boost enhancer as a way of getting better closing speed and separation (GTFO).

Hs 129 A has become my nightly go-to fun plane for progress on the weekly loot crate, but I flew Ju 87 G last night and probably tonight as well because veebat posted a video where he was inexplicably able to hit other planes easily with the stuka's guns which is something it CANNOT do in my experience.  I need to figure out whether it's another ping/lag related gun bug or something else that's going on with it being unable to hit planes.

HAX!

 

That plane is totally unfair.  Only the XF-90 is more meta.

Fw 252 gives a disgusted grunt and quietly leaves the room

Yeah, gotta watch your 6 when a 90 is in the hood.

I so want to make that plane work for me.

I was flying the 1101 a few days back and while in the middle of an airfield doing a loop I had a brain fart because the plane can do so much that you don't know what to do.

Dodging a HF, then saw a MRF, then a low hp ADA...too much all at once. I'm used to operating in an aircraft's envelope but the 1101 doesn't have one, it has a large manila folder... it's a tad OP overall but I like aircraft that put all their eggs in one basket, raw firepower or speed like the 262 or bf109 G. It's just more rewarding for me to do that than just outturn everything in a Spit or Yak.
