I just bought the SE 100 french heavy the other day.  I was really upset with the turn rate but then I found the flap key and can't be happier with the plane.  4 x 20mm front cannons shred through any light fighter and rips away bombers and other heavies.  The 20mm tail gun picks the bones of anything that you weaken head-on and finishes the job.  Oh my, my seat is warm.

I don't have a big collection, but I have most all the planes I care for.

 

multirole fighter: Above Tier III, I really only have the Hurricane Mk Ia, and I like it.

 

 

FYI, the Hurricane Mk 1A  is a fighter. I like it too

There's a flap key?

By default bound to E, I believe, or perhaps you may have to set it, I don't remember.

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 fixed the post.

 

I have both planes, but I ground out and elited the Hurricane I to have one multirole in case I needed one. I like it. I somehow acquired the Hurricane Ia fighter, but haven't played it at all.

Its stats, apart from not having bombs, are almost identical to the Hurricane I without bombs. What then is the point of it even? It just feels like WG tried to pull another Spitfire Ia, but the Hurricane I only has one armament option, so its not like the Hurricane Ia is just a stock Hurricane like the Spitfire Ia is a stock Spitfire, it's basically just a Hurricane I without bombs, and... ... ... ... that's about it. Nothing else really to set it apart from the tech tree plane except for a different class designation, really.(which means exactly zero in terms of stat changes, it must be noted)

Stats aren't everything. 

 

The 1a has an engine equipment slot instead of an outboard weapon slot.  For me, that makes the 1a better. 

(Besides the fact that the Hurricane 1 needs to be specialized to have 3 equipment slots like the 1a, instead of the default 1.)

 Its stats, apart from not having bombs, are almost identical to the Hurricane I without bombs.

 But Hurri I has bombs and they reload quickly (30s?). Edit: checked ingame and its 60s.

 

You drop bombs & kill a Medium target, maybe finish off 2 damaged ones, kill a couple of ADA and if the cap hasn't already flipped you'll have bombs again and they'll definitely be reloaded by the time you get to next cap.

 

It actually took me until this event to notice that Hurri Ia is a Fighter not Multirole :hiding:

 

The problem with the Hurri Ia is that lack of bombs: When I fly it I often find myself frustrated by having to chase down some plane thats faster/higher than me because I can't just break off & drop bombs to finish off the cap flip.

Funny how rare it is to find someone who truly likes all the classes, myself included lol.



Okay, If you are going to press me...

Bomber: A-26 ... definitely my favorite bomber although i don't play bombers much... I can make it work when bombing and it has decent guns.

GA: idk, probably the Il-10. I can't form a really good opinon here since it's my highest tier GA but i do kinda like it


Are those classes my favorites to play? no... but I can still enjoy myself when i play them. I even went out and spent money to buy an RB-17 at one point... That being said, I'd still rather spend my time in a fighter class engaging in air-to-air combat

He's not a player, but a bench racer.  Stats mean everything to a bench racer.  Actual flying is where the reality sits...

I don't care what the stats are.  If it flies, I can shoot it down.  Stats are for losers.

Um, I was just saying if it doesn't have much of anything(apart from a different upgrade slot which means comparatively little to me) but a lack of a bomb option to set it apart from the Hurricane I, and doesn't have drastically improved performance to justify the loss of the option to equip bombs on it, then I don't see the point of taking it over the Hurricane I,(which I like quite a lot by the way) which's bombs make it more flexible and versatile, as was stated above.

I still don't see the point of taking a plane over another that it is almost identical to that in practice has more versatility than it. These are not stats, these are my actual observations from playing the Hurricane I.

 

Stats are for losers and practically don't matter, gameplay is for winners. Enough said.

 

Edit: did you just copy and paste what you said before? Well, that's uncreative...

I thought you were arguing Hurri Ia made it pointless to fly Hurri I.

MRFs and I just.. have never gelled. I'm not certain why to be honest.. but I get halfway through a battle in one and I'm frustrated or bored. So I've mostly avoided them.

 

It took me the longest time to enjoy them. Still not my favorites but there are some fun ones out there! The Corsair line especially if you want something good all the way down :)

I believe default is 'S' unless I changed mine to that at some point earlier in my career.
