Tomahawk has 4 .30 cals and 2 .50 cals

P-40M has 6 .50's

 and neither of them have the recently buffed .50 cals that the US versions have.

My potato of the week. Took out the 1099 B2, having a hard time finishing things off, etc. Only after 3 games did I realize I had messed around with pilot and equipment and had a zero point pilot and NO equipment at all. DUH!!!

I did that with the Hs 123 (at least it was Tier II).   I think the pilot had skills, but no equipment and no consumables.....I realized it pretty early in the game because the plane just seemed weird, even for P I.   It's the only game I've lost in that plane (out of 5).

So I finally took my F2G out for its first battle.   Talked with one of my clan mates before hand and opted to swap out the LWF for Polished Skin - saw I had 5(!) of the experimental version in the depot, slapped it on, enhanced it and calibrated it (not all the way - the RNG slot machine was not in my favor tonight) and wound up getting it up to 316 mph cruise with an 11.4 turn time (LPU to balance the polished skin).

 

Pulled a 1v1 vs a J 21RB on Red.   Won by 10 points after I flipped the mining plant back to blue.   It was right towards the end of the game, and the bots had just flipped the other plant to blue, so it was sufficient to take back the lead and win 800-790.  Only got 2 aerial kills (and one was a ram against the human on red, though I tried to dive out of the way).   That 1600 lb bomb is niiiiiicccceeee.....destroyed the special object at the mining plant twice (with some help from the rockets).

 

Only played two other battles today, both wins.   First in the Ar 197 to finish up Period I dailies (less than 5K points on that one, alas), and then the last one in the A6M5 with Akira to work on finishing up Period II dailies (plus the bird needs to be specialized).   Pulled snowy shores in a 3v3.  We grabbed the central airbase and managed to hold on to it, as well as 2-3 of the garrisons.   Lost a duel to another A6M5 because I fumbled the keyboard - I was winning the turn fight against him by using a combination of boost and pitch up (all gear is ultimate) and would have finished him on the next pass.  I picked him off later though.

 

The cost to upgrade equipment on the F2G is....astonishing.   I pulled almost 9K experience and didn't have enough to even walk in the dealership door.   I could free XP it (I did the bomb and rockets, IIRC), but I'll grind it out (maybe use boosters) this weekend.  Gives me XP for the pilot's 10th point (still a ways away though).

 

Based on the limited sample size of one battle, the F2G is going to be fun - it's almost too fast.  I'm going to have to adjust to that speed so I don't overshoot as much as I did tonight.

Lately, I've been derping around in the Corsair line and the P-47N, along with my usual P-36 (just missed an ACE yesterday) and US Heavies.  My last game yesterday was a new PB in the Swoose, and by a mile*!  26k, 33 kills, 7 medals and a 741:741 win by clearing out the last three red bots that were all in the same sector.  It wasn't even against allbots, it was a 2 v 2 game.  The Mustang driver in red had a great win%, but I kept catching him when he was busy doing something else.  (both sides had a potato GAA driver.)(*previous best was 25 kills.)

 

at least for one game, I knew what its like being KAIM, with all the stars aligned, and the sun shining directly on my empennage.   :teethhappy:

So, you're making a new account to troll in his stead?

 

You could just post your "support" for his trolling on your main account, right?

Decided to go hard in the paint with the Fury over the past two days. Finally finished the spec grind. Conveniently for me i managed to also unlock the Saber in the same fight, so woo hoo! 
I like this plane. a bit slow sometimes vs the teir tens but that is just a fact of life for all teir 9. Specialization has fixed the speed problem for the most part so im pretty happy with it. 
 Unfortunately i spent a little too much on upgrading equipment. So now i need to do whip out the premiums to pay for the Saber jet.  

Goblin! I choose YOU!

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

The J8M is hilarious.   Some people are good enough in it to do well.

 

I'm not one of those, but I still have fun flying it.

Flew the Model 81A-1 the other day. I don't think red knew I was there. I was invisible. And invincible. Had fun.

Yes it can be quite fun. THe trick i find is to treat it like a homing missle . with guns! 
see a direction you want to go? point nose there . press booooooooossssst  and all of a sudden there you are!
While you are gliding about getting your boost back you find yourself going slow enough that other planes can keep up
This is good.
Because they did NOT see you coming
if you did it right
and are now right behind them blazing away with the daka daka

By the time they realize what happened you are now slowing down to the point where most planes are begining to struggle with the turning. Forcing them to pull away as they try to keep enough airspeed to maneuver around to delete you. 
Oh look your boost is back.
And lucky you your manuverability remains good almost right up to your stall speed. Which is broken. Because you are built to be a glider anyway.
You can point nose behind their turn and with just a little squirt of boost you are behind them all over again. And again. and again.

And for those few aircraft that have the low speed agility to turn on you NONE of them can catch you 
if you just want to escape you simply point the nose straight up and booooost to altitudes nothing in tier 8 can match.
Or point the nose straight down and reach your maximum dive speed in less time than it takes to read this sentence. 

 But once you get the guns dialed in ... 

Spoiler


THen you can actually stop screwing around and put in work. is that a light fighter on half health in the next cap zone over? 
Booooooooost   and gliiiide and blamblamblamblamka-Boom.
lurk between a few close cap zones and you can pick off weakened planes that are trying to escape any of them.
Mostly because they are worried about what already shot them up and not a J*M that when last seen was two cap zones away.

To celebrate WeeGee's B-Day I won 5 consecutive battles in my new Hawk75M.

The Hawk75M is a really good and fun to fly tier 3 fighter.
