So when you look at your upgrade path for a plane it usually shows that the airframe upgrade only gives you +20 hit points.  (aside from the cosmetic changes)  I've avoided spending the XP on upgraded airframe when I'm still trying to finish the grind to the next plane, since 20 hit points is hardly worth worrying about.

 

But today I was looking on the website and noticed that on the web site shows the airspeed and manouverability numbers also change.

Ignore the "game info". See and/or ask someone who has a clue. :sceptic:

 

Big surprise. It ain't me.

I always upgrade airframe first, then guns followed by engine.

I seem to remember that ingame info used to have that too ... (1.9?). I still always upgrade frame first because of extra speed/maneuverability, force of habit I guess ?

It depends on the aircraft to be honest, but you are correct saying that in-game window lacks some information. I'll pass it along to the team.

Thank you sooo much for that.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Thank you.  When you mouse over the upgrade, it should present all the stats improvements, not merely the HP enhancement.

regarding upgrades, I usually fly a few missions and remain observant of the weak points on a given aircraft. If it lacks power to climb to an advantages altitude, I will upgrade the powerplant.

If the guns lack the take down power, then the guns get upgraded. 

So on and so forth.


My status is "Senior Airman". Is that because I'm old? :sceptic:

that also would depend on crafts nature and your play style....to a degree.
