I-211 - First engine upgrade.  Air Supremacy losses to players in the first, and bots in the second.  Squeaked out a narrow win against bots in the third by camping the mining plant.

 

Bf 109 G - Feels good to get my precious altitude back!  Mounted the top engine, but intend to stick with the 20mm gun until I get the Me 209 A.  First battle my allied player never loaded in, so it was no contest.  Second battle was a narrow win against Spec'd meta-plane enemies.

Putting some time in the Bf109B, the He 111H2 and the Do17z. Have not flown bombers much but found doing so because of the daily missions. Besides, I am slowly working my way to get that Ju86E which is the only plane I do not have except the T9 nd T10 lines.

Got a chance to fly this evening, using an hour of credit booster

 

Plane       XP    credits   Result   Notes

Ki-43-Ic   9.5k   98.5k   Defeat    team fighting outside of caps

Ki-43-Ic    3k      40k     Defeat    Specialized enemy tryhards ruin battle

Ki-43-Ic   10k    139k    Victory    Bad matchup for the enemy team

Ju 86 E    7k       83k    Victory    4 of 6 players in ground pounders - very close result

 

Tried to get another battle, but I ran out of time on my credit booster.  Sold some gift equipment I probably wouldn't use soon to purchase F-84F on discount.

P-39Q-15 - Just bought this.  Flies well enough, but of course it has a low ceiling.  Fragile.  

 

Yak-1M - Clicked "Battle" by mistake.  Set on fire and exploded, as usual.  

 

LaGG-3 (34) - Decided to DERP.  Even with Marksman 2 I wasn't really finding the lead in the span of just one battle.

Last night I flew my new F-84F for the first time.  It flies pretty much like the F-84B as expected, but I'd really like to buff boost or engine power to intercept the enemy faster since I felt like I was spending far too much dead time trying reach gun range while enemy planes hung there tantalizingly out of reach.  The enemy player was in a Specialized P.1101 I had no hope of challenging so it was a fairly quick loss.

To be fair, the 1101 is probably the best LF in the game.

Flew the hapless I-211 for a few battles this evening, and purchased the top engine.  Still haven't figured an effective way to use the plane.  The cost of repairs is staggering, so I'm trying not to spend much time inside caps, maybe dipping in for a moment and back out to see if I can bait ADA to follow me, and only committing to completely distracted/engaged planes.   Feels like the way to fly it is sit at a distance and observe, and maybe an already-engaged enemy will happen along your way, or a low health GA will be ripe for the popping.  Retreat frequently.  But playing passively isn't being effective.

Just got my Fantome yesterday. Should be great when I want to go clubbing while staying home (no risk of contracting COVID-19 by avoiding night clubs).

Don't Specialize it.  It's already strong enough, and a Specialized top Tier Fantome ruins the battle for everyone else.

My Bf-109B strenuously disagrees.

  Mmmm, but your Bf-109B isn't in every battle, and I haven't flown one in years.

 

Got a little time to fly around server reset, flying 4 planes that are pretty new to me.  I'm trying to save up to buy the Jawa when March of Nations gets to Japan.

 

F-84F - Didn't face much competition.  Got the pilot to 100%, but I still don't have any equipment to mount on this plane.  

 

Ki-43-Ic - Got into a very tight turny battle, with most of the players concentrated in the central Airfield.

 

Hunter - Like my F-84F, I don't have any equipment to mount yet, and I got the pilot to 100% against bots.  Don't have the bombs or rockets researched either.  The bots seemed to be ignoring me, so I flew around popping bots, missing way too many shots.  

 

I-180-3 - "We cannot control roll rate of this magnitude!"  Camped the central airfield for a $$$ Winged Legend.  Fun plane with decent speed and guns, though like many super-turnies it's a bit fragile.

Cap, you might know me as a smart-aleck, and you'd be right in that.  But I will say this:

 

The Bertha is probably the strongest LF at-tier.  In a mixed-tier (3/4) fight, it is absolutely dominant.  In a 4/5 fight, it is competent, and can do good work.

In your favorites, you have two speedy altitude fighters - the MiG-3 and the I-250.  The Bertha is like those, only, IMO, better at-tier.  In my MiG-3, I feel like a god at T5, and the only plane I have trouble with there is the P-38F.  Well, at T4, the Bertha is like that, only I have no enemy I fear.  There is nothing at T4 that can touch the Bertha, IF you keep your wits.  Specialized, with ultimate equipment?

It's a slaughter.

Get your Bertha on, brother.  You won't regret it - and since you already know how to play a fast, altitude fighter (MiG-3, I-250), you know how to play the Bertha.

Solid observation, but I'm on the G trying to get to the Me 209 A.  I don't recall much about the B since I flew it and sold it a couple years ago back when I had too few hangar slots to grind every line at the same time.  But my original objection was about a Spec'd Fantome versus other slow non-Spec turn fighters.

what CorvusCorvax sed, and why.

 

The Bertil is a BEAST at tier, if you know how to energy fight.  If I'm uptier in it, I expect to dominate the game, and usually do.

Oh, yes.  The 209A, P.1092, and P.1101 are great, awe-inspiring, and outstanding, in that order.  The Bf-109B is to T4 and T5 as the P.1092 is to T9 and T10.  If and when you get to enjoy the P.1092, remember what I wrote here.  You'll be buying back the Bertha, I promise.

LOTS of players this Sunday morning!  Using 2 hours of boosters and my russian premiums to save up for my Jawa next week.  I'll continue where I left of with USSR premiums later, since I have a ton of them.  Did not earn as many credits as usual since some of these premiums are low-earning Tier 2 planes.

 

 

Plane         XP credits Result   Notes

I-7             12k     61k  Defeat   Fast for a Tier 2, but the gun is slow to kill.  Close battle.

I-7             13k     78k  Victory   Close battle against 3 Spec'd enemy

I-5 ShKAS 10k     61k Victory   Slower plane, faster guns

TsKB 12bis  5k     74k Victory   I-207/4 owned me, but somehow victory

I-15bisDM2 14k 172.5k Victory  That old fossil Stalin smiled

Di-6i             6k   88k   Victory

BSh-1          9k  101k   Defeat

BSh-1          7k    95k   Victory

I-153 DM-4  5k   80.5k Defeat  Enemy camping my missile base.

I-153 DM-4  12k  175k Victory  Akamatsu - Air Supremacy, not much of a battle

I-207/4         4k   66.5k Victory  Love the little pug-plane.  Battle was over in only 4:30 so I barely got to fly it.

Tonight I didn't get a lot of flying time, so I returned to grinding activities.

 

I-211 - Flew as high as I could and abused the bot bombers and heavies.  Rarely flew down. and only ran into a player once.  12k points and victory

 

Do 217 M - All-bot battle and Air Supremacy meant it was short and low scoring.  5k points and victory.  Crew got their second skill points.

 

Hornet - Building XP to research the hognose, but won't be in time for March of Nations.  14k points against bots, McCampbell, Guardian.  A crazy bot J4M vectored straight to attack me every time he respawned, for the entire battle.
