What is the WORST plane in the "Premium" sphere that you can think of? The topic title really said it all here.

I'd put in a vote for either the Japanese Ki-5 T2 or the French Caudron-Renault C.714 T4.

What do YOU find most useless in the Premium Sphere?

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

What about the 2PA? I've heard that that one is awful.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

I used the Ki-5 for one game and it worked quite well for me. 

 

I'm not much of a fan of the premium Buffalo.

 

I'd think the "worst" label will probably be more appropriate at higher Tiers where shortcomings are punished much harder

I've not flown that one, but it doesn't look like it would bring me joy from the stats.

The KI-5 just gets eaten comparative to my other T2s, but I'll agree a lot of them I bet get clustered at high tiers as this goes on.

Out of the higher tier stuff, I've not got so many but I am curious what others think :)

The only premium P-40 that beats the tech tree version is the proper nose art on the Chinese one.

Lets double down on this though.  Me 109 TL vs Me 262 . which one?

Play it sometimes, the firepower isn't as bad as you'd think.

against tier 3's ? sure.

against anything else the DPM from  just 2x .50's takes way tooooo looooong to kill stuff.
With that said; when flighted up with another Model 81 it becomes quite tolerable.
If both of you are able to focus fire the same target consistently,
As a team they do well in tier 4 because that does not require the bogie to make mistakes for it to work.

In tier 5 ... You Really need to not make any mistakes and still be able to capitalize on the mistakes of others to do well.

I used to dislike the F4F too, but some time ago I got the XF4F-3 free with 30 days premium and I'm really starting to like it. For some reason it's quite good at dog fights over airfields ... not really turning, but diving in & out of the furball.

So I might just get the F4F back again.

 

My least favourite premium is probably the He-100 ... paper plane with peashooters.

Really?  I bought them both a few days back and they did well, though it isn't really terribly challenging at that level.

Waaaay back in the day, the 2PA was THE OP plane to take down heavies.  It was not to be used down low against the turn and burns, and its rear gunner never was that dangerous.  As I recall, it was nerfed long ago, although I do remember still using it against heavies with some success.  I do not believe it would really have a use in 2.0 unless WG wanted to use it as sector protection.

Miles M.20, before specialization patch -- maybe time to revisit.

 

Also, Ki-5 is underrated.  At first glance it appears to be mediocre, but it is actually a speed demon for the tier when properly built, and still retains some maneuverability.  I am looking forward to the Kawasaki Ki-28 as a possible tier III premium for the same reason (competed against Ki-27 which won, and the Ki-33 which lost but succeeded for Navy as A5M)
