Hello all. I recently re-installed the game to see what all the fuss or talk was about. I see the tree, and most of the stats have changed since I was last on. The XF-90 is now a near useless aircraft, the Hawker Hunter has replaced all Multi Role, the US is still behind on speed for the Sabre, and F7U. While I appreciate an attempt to fix the identity crisis that was happening prior to me going vacation, it is now a different kind of mess. There is also a lot that can still be done. I would like to suggest aircraft to add that would provide a different gameplay

Germany:

After World War 2, Germany used aircraft from other nations for some time. This inventory list includes the F-104F, CL-13 (Canada Sabre), Mig models, Panavia Tornado, Dornier Alpha Jet, Fiat G91, and many others

-For Ground Attack, the Fiat G91 could fill that role. It would give a "Rocketeer Aircraft" to the game. It could carry 2 Matra Rocket Pods (19 rockets each)

-The F-104F would fit nicely in a Heavy Aircraft Role. It would provide a nose mounted cannon aircraft, and a Vulcan to the Tier 10. Research can be completed from the HG 2 or 3

-CL-13 is an obvious fighter role choice. It had a higher top speed, and thrust than the American Sabre. This would give the German side a Machine Gun ready fighter

-For my last Germany suggestion, I am going to suggest the Dornier Alpha Jet. It could carry up to 5,500 pounds of bombs. Certainly not the payload of the F-84 but, it made up for it by being lighter. This would give a "light bomber" to the game

UK:

Like Germany not a lot was going on so this will be short

Ground Attack: Supermarine Scimitar. Comes with 4 ADEN Cannons and a choice of 4,000 pounds in Bombs, or 16 unguided missiles

Heavy Fighter: English Electric Lightning. Though the cannon count is low at 2, this is a rediculously fast air craft for the 50's. Can be researched from the P228 or Javelin

USA:

Any aircraft listed were available by the 50's

Bomber: F-105 Thunderchief. It wasn't packing the Bomb load of dedicated bombers but, it did a good job of flying fast, dropping, and peacing out. This would give the game a "boom and zoom" bomber

Heavy Fighter: F-8 Crusader. This plane was called "The Last Gunfighter". It brought the pain to Mig 17's by dropping Missiles, then using 4, 20mm cannons. You can find a youtube video about it here
This would provide the USA tech tree with a unique 5 inch rocket pod aircraft, and nose mounted cannons. One of the biggest issues with the XF-90 is the cannons being in odd places

Fighter: Buff the Sabre so it can keep up. Perhaps add an alternative model of it that features the 4, 20mm cannons

Multi-Role: I have no idea why the F7U would be in the game. I would sooner suggest replacing it with the Phantom, or F4D Skyray. That is just me though.

Crew and Aircraft suggestion:

To ensure Aircraft like the Javelin are not out classed, and to provide future expandability.. I am going to suggest having a Radar Operator crew slot. This crew member would have its own talents, and provide bonuses not normally available to other aircraft. Future Aircraft that could benefit from it are the F4 Phantom, De Havilland Sea Venom, and aircraft like that

Knowing that a lot of these modern aircrafts are equipped with Radar, I was thinking that could be a unique bonus to them. They would get a higher aircraft detection radius. Planes like the F4D would not get as much of a bonus, as the Javelin

This is the most I have for now. Give me more time, and I am sure I will have more

There are several XF-90 players who would strongly disagree with you.  While I am not one of them atm, I have been on the receiving end of said players and brother, let me tell you, they are wicked in the right hands.  

 

As for your other suggestions, this game pretty much stops the airplane progression at the Korean War.  I don't disagree with your plane suggestions, but the current direction is to roll out moar bombers and other "blueprint-only" planes for snits and giggles.  Supersonic aircraft are not in their plans from what I know.  Besides, while I personally love the look and concept of the F-104, it was a POS that somehow got foisted on West Germany.

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

What all the fuss is about? I would love for you to share what ever you been taking.

I have heard absolutely nothing about this game.

 

You are wrong about the XF-90.

The Javelin is an excellent tier 10.

No need for a RIO in this game. We already have tail gunners we have to split experience with.

WG has created " navigational equipment " for the toons.

 

Welcome back to World of Warplanes Arcade 2.0.

The safest place for BOTS to be bots regardless of color.

A game where you are more likely to find a penny in your pocket than a human in a match.

 

Watch out for the BOSS at level 10 it's a fast pattern of Left-Left-jump Left- roll right- sword sword sword

Moore to it than that but I keep dying.

Since WOWP is all about nerfing the all time great planes and introducing planes that never were contenders in any war, I would like to see X-Wing fighters and Tie-fighters and that Battle Star galactica fighter.  Lets just load up on the woulda,  coulda, shoulda models.  Lets have Snoopys dog house in here overpowering the P51,  Spit,  BF109,  FW190,  Mig3,  Yak7...

Since WOWP is all about "Buck Rogers" type aircraft and minimizing the all time great planes lets go all out and add X-wing fighters and Tie fighters,  the Battle Star Galactica fighter.  We don't need the historically significant planes ruling the roost anymore.  Lets bring in Snoopys dog house and flying saucers.  Its always a hoot watching the P51 and FW190 butcher bird sucking.  Aladins magic carpet swooping in and man handling the F86 would be cool.  Do not introduce the Albatross or Sopwith Camel.  The Machii line?  who cares.  Lets get Capt Marvel in here while we are at it.

Bobby_Tables: I picked up on it stopping at the Korean War. However any aircraft I suggested were available during that time period. IMO WOWP lost any order it had when it decided to make the HG 3 fly at 700, or for that matter putting in a bunch of experimental aircraft like the XF-90

I am not suggesting they go Supersonic for now. They can put a cap on the speed. The F-8 is historically faster than all of them except for the F-104 and F-105. The fastest I can find of historically is the Gloster Javelin at 710 MPH. F-8's had a top speed of 1,225. You could cap that to say 8 or 900. Going full military power was not common anyways. If at a later date they decide to go super sonic, they can change it

Ok fine so no RIO. Just keep the suggestion of having more visibility if it is a Radar aircraft. The Javelin, F4D, and others have it

I recognize the Javelin is still decent. I meant that as a "if the changes are made" then it would stil give it something unique. I guess I should of phrased it better

If you are so good at searching, then you would of known that there is an EU account

Can we please get back to the subject?

I am not seeing anything wrong with a speed capped Crusader for the US. It could be researched from the Pirate is it? The one that allows the fighters to branch over to the Heavies

It would give rockets, nose mounted cannons, and maybe a better turn rate. It could sit at say 720 (20 less than the XF-90) but, get a 15.5 turn time or something

Don't pay them any mind.

Could be paranoia or protectiveness. Who knows, who cares.

It does make for a good chuckle.

 

"They started lookin' real suspicious at him
He jumped up and said "Now just wait a minute Jim!
You know he's lying I been living here all of my life!"

"I'm a faithful follower of Brother John Birch
And I belong to the Antioch Baptist Church.
And I ain't even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!"

Then he started saying somethin' bout the way I was dressed
But I didn't wait around to hear the rest
I was too busy moving and hoping I didn't run outta luck"

All I can say is that you'd already lost all ability for me to take you seriously.

I checked the EU, no, this account does not exist there. :)

Like I said, I wonder who's trolling alt this is.

The second you said " The XF-90 is now a near useless aircraft" the asininity of this post hit a level that just makes me giggle.

Seriously.

 

A well-flown XF-90 can really do some serious damage.  A poorly-flown one is pretty terrible, however.  Of the T10 aircraft, the consensus is that the FW-252 is the least worthy.  Some folks say that the Me P.1101 is the cream of the crop.  I will say this - the P.1101 is pretty special.  But like any light fighter, it can be defeated.  And my HGIII owns plenty of P.1101 scalps, so to speak.

No mention of the Skyraider?  I call shenanigans.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is very 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.
Specialist Planes i have:
USA: XP-31, F1C-2, Model 81A-1, P-40, F4F, P-38F, P-39N-1, P-47B, P-38J, XF15C, XP-58  USSR: Tu-1  UK: DH.100 F1. Japan: not even once.
Germany: Fw 56, Hs 123, Ha 137, He 112, Bf 109 B, Bf 110 C-6, Do 17 Z, Bf 109 E, Bf 109 E-3, Ju 87 G, Fw 190 A-5, Me 410, Do 217 M, Me 265, Me209 A, Do 335 A-1, Me 1099 B-2
