Is it bad that all I can think is how much I dislike both the planes required to do this and that I don't -own- either of them and find the coin barrier to have a chance at any of the prizes to be a bit frustrating, but... to caveat that.. I like the -idea- of this sort of event... we'll see how it plays out! See everyone in the blue!!

I have the -38J.  It is borderline OP for the tier.  I prefer the Me-410 @ T6, and it is my most-played aircraft.  But Winged Legend battles are possible in the J, if you fly it right.  And it will straight up OWN the 109F.  The F was my least favorite of the Bf-109 line, but worth the effort to get to T8/T9.  At T10, the P.1101 is arguably the best fighter.  The P.1092 at T9 is pretty darn good. 

 

If you were going to spend money to get a T6 heavy fighter, the P-38J is the best choice.

i did okay in the Friedrich...  it flies really well but has trouble finishing off targets because of the lighter guns for it's tier

 

i'm still on the fence on the J...  i love the F, and the J should be a somewhat faster, harder hitting version, but...  somehow, it's more than i can control

 

this could be a excuse to just fly the J until i can master it, as it will come in handy if when the 410 gets nerfed

the 410 isn't op. why would they nerf it?

 

and a well flown P 38j will destroy a 109F.

I have a question do you mean the premium German plane or the tech tree one and do we have to play both of the planes because I don't have either of these.

if you don't plan on staying up for 2 days strait don't bother flying the p38.  I got some uppers, coke, and  cigarettes so I'm ready to go the distance.  my plane is ready to go to.  I have maxed out equipment, 4 season gold paint, and a good pilot.  I have stockpiled my gold ammo since I started playing and I have been looking for something to use it on.  The p38j is my most played  plane because its one of my favorites.  I have 48 hours and 57 min in it.  The xp-58 is mine!  everyone else will be playing for second place.  you are better off playing the bf109f.

if i remember right  you can change the gun set ups now so you could make them work better to get the job done

The J and I have a checked history, which is why I sold it LOL. I too prefer the ME-410 at T6 or -even- the Japanese heavy fighter now that that is a thing. So far as the F.. I've actually never flown it or even researched it. It's one of the -few- t6 or below planes I can say that about. I gave up on the german fighter line at T5 in frustration at the overall mediocrity.. the planes weren't bad... just.. no pizzazz to them, no "niche" if you will to my view. I imagine that changes as they get higher tier, I've just not gotten back to them.

This will give me an excuse to either try to iron out my wrinkles with the J or finally go back to the German fighters and see if I feel differently about them now.

it's cool I tried to fly the p38s and well ill pass on this even its not my play style and I don't have either plane researched good luck to all that tries the even I won't play until the event is over. I will have to admit I sold the b32 tonight to buy the p47b and so far I love the plane I am not use to her speed yet and turn rate and roll rate.

Tech tree one. We try to use planes that can be researched for such events.

Is there a premium 109 F ?? 

I thought only the 109 E had a premium version, the E-3 ...

 

Not many people seem to like the 109F.

Good, then maybe I have a chance at one of the prizes ... (on EU server, don't have the F on NA yet).

I am looking forward to this.  Not as much as Greg_P above, but definitely looking forward to it.

Ugh. I am locked into a cant make a decision loop

I LOVE my P-38F But i have had such fun with it that i never (until VERY Recently) bothered with making the J-ump to the next tier.
there are many planes in my hanger dividing my attention
Its not even elite. Equipment is hardly top notch ... etc etc.
Sure its another P38 and will (probably) love it to bits. But I am not the only member of the P-38 fan club.
This will be Very Competitive. I am not one to shy from a challenge and i am curious as to how i will stack up.
But i know that i will not place as well as i could ...   And i already have an XP-58...  Listen to me, already talking my self out of this.  

And yet i am further along here than with the Bf109.

And then there is Friedrich.
I enjoy the Bf 109 line.
But Friedrich is the only plane i have burned free xp to bypass completely. (i had 400k+xp on the chain lighting before i found out where the accelerate crew training button was. ):facepalm: 
But why?

And most people cant make Friedrich work (or even have one in the hanger) or would even bother trying.
Hell just showing up will probably get me in the top 50. And i dont have a 109TL...
But just knowing how to Friedrich and being able to apply that knowledge is not the same thing. 
Spoiler

Also buying, equipping,grinding specialist, further upgrading equipment etc on a a tier 6 tech tree plane just for a 2 day contest ...  ouch. 
If i had one already in the hanger, i think that would be a different matter.

And yet my Do 335 is very lonely at teir 8 ...

UGH! By the time i figure this out the contest is over
[Edit]
Screw it Ill go with what i got, not what i maybe want.  Necessity of service and all that. 

Making the J-ump to tier 6 in   4 ... 3 ... 2 ...

it's cool wylleEcoyote I don't have either of these planes so I cant participate in the event but I'm trying out the p47b this plane I am having some problems with it I love its speed but I don't know if it's my internet or computer or the game and plane but when I turn and shoot the shots don't hit even those I am leading when I am on a plane tail I am close enough his hp bar shows up I open fire no noise or his health drops but I am hitting the other plane because pieces of the planes fall off it's been like this last night and today.
