P-47N - No mining plant maps and too many Cheatfires flying around, so I tried to keep it above 2000 meters.  Nearly have the XP for the XP-72, but I'd still need more than 2 million credits to buy it.

 

Wirraway - quick loss against a spec'd rocket biplane, but at least I got to entertain myself shooting down a dozen GA and some ADA fighters

 

I-16-29 - funny little toy plane

Flew a few games in my Mustang 1a to make some cash. Then flew my Me 410 and unlocked the 109z. Then flew a couple in my Ki 102. That all went well.

Then we dropped tiers and the game pooped on us so we won't mention those.

Bf-109F.  I love it.  I DO NOT love potato team mates.  Please, if you don't know how to fly a plane, please use the training rooms for a few flights.  Thank you.

P38J was my focus for the evening. Fun plane. With the 23mm.

P-47N - Got the XP for the XP-72, but still need two million credits before I can fly it. 

 

Ju 86 E - Hopelessly focused down by a Bf 110 in the first battle, but somehow avoided all the heavies in the second.

Just had a long day and played 1 game in my Ki 102. All the players on the other team were specialized, none on mine were, and they had a flight, we didn't, it was a turkey shoot and we were the turkeys. This is why people leave the game. Which I'm not doing, but it's enough for me for the day.

Zoomed out of the gate in the MiG, and then flew some things I haven't touched in a while:

 

MiG-9 - soooo faaaasssstttttt

 

Spitfire Ia - feels really really really dirty

 

Hurricane IID - My only loss of the night, with a poor matchup for this derpwagon against enemy turn-fighters

 

Blenheim IVe - the dreaded "Air Supremacy" hampered my damage total, but still managed to finish a ground target mission

 

Ki-88 - fortunately the enemy players always appeared pre-wounded so I could quickly finish them off

It is, and you are for flying it.  SHAME!

Only once...and only because it's bright BLUE.  In the next battle the player I victimized (for flying a Blenheim down low) was in his own Spitfire and shot down my Hurricane, so what comes around goes around and around and around and around....

With all the other Spitfires out, flying the Ia isn't so bad.  You just do to them what they're trying to do to everyone else.

Flew the Bf-109F for specialization and Albion grind.  Got both.  Plus the Vampire!

 

All around, a great flying night.

 

Oh, and sometime in there, I flew my 4000th 2.x battle.

I'm not really working on any tech tree branches now, so I'm flying random things that I haven't used much recently:
 

Ju 88 A - I got focused in the first two battles, so I flew above 2500 meters thereafter.  Dismal battles.

 

He 111 H-2 - Carpet bombing from 2700 meters works. 

 

Miles M.20 - I guess it isn't as slow as I remember it being.

 

Di-6i - An unfortunately lopsided battle.  So much fast action I never got to drop a bomb or use the tailgunner. 

 

Yak-7 - I need to relearn my derp aim. 

 

I decided to start the bottom end of the Hurricane line, with no equipment and 50% crews: 

 

Demon, Skua - a couple close forgettable losses

P38 tonight. I am finally beginning to feel like my old self as a pilot.

 

Free XP'ed the rest of the way through the Beaufighter to the Mosquito. I know it's popular, not my cup of tea. Besides, I still have 1.2 million free xp to burn through from Tanks.

  Skua - I flew the Skua to unlock the Hurricane I and Blenheim F.  It looks so ungainly, but does OK even with a 50% crew borrowed from another plane. 

 

  Blenheim F - I unlocked the Blenheim F first, and even though I don't like heavies and rarely fly them I was doing fine as long as there were was a steady stream of bot bombers and stalling-out multiroles to abuse.  Again flying a borrowed 50% crew.  Hoping to buy the Beau(-and-Luke-Duke-)fighter while it's on discount, but I may not get enough XP by the end of the sale. 

 

  MiG-3 - I flew my MiG-3 for the first time in many months and OMG I FORGOT HOW AWESOME IT IS!  Even with a 50% pilot!  This may have been my first/second battle with it Specialized.  I bought a sexy black-on-green camo and in just one battle I raked in a stack of medals Winged Legend, Hero of the Sky, Guardian, Conqueror, etc etc etc.  This new MiG-3 pilot will be up to speed in no time.

Started with the de Havilland Mosquito. Did okay, not spectacular. PostalMonkey gave me some advice so I will report back. 

 

On a side note this plane is one I have looked forward to playing. As a kid I read the tales of 617 squadron, with Guy Gibson and Barnes Wallace, and the Mosquito Pathfinders played an important role. So a real pleasure to play. 

 

Spent most of my time on the P38J Lightning, unlocked the Tigercat. Yesterday unlocked the Zwilling. Two down, two to go

 

Dropped down and flew the P38 Wik and got seal clubbed. Dismal matches - just trying to complete a daily.

Flew the Blenheim and Skua once each this morning.  My weekend alone with the internet is over - the woman is home so the apple devices are taking over all the bandwidth again.   Just a few short of xp needed for the Hurricane I now.  Decided the free xp I'd need to get the Beauliciousfighter today is too much to justify the credit savings, so I'll finish that some other time.

i flew way more then i feel like writing other then the typhoon. I originally only flew 2 battles back in December when first acquired, didn't care for it at all and same tonight. But i grinded it out and upgraded the turd and boy did she wake up, still cant climb well, plus those boomsticks reload much faster then im used to so its not hard to flatten a decent amount of gt while invoking more fear then a staph infected jock strap
