Its like an effective 209 V4 built up to a T8 plane and given an actually -good- cannon... I don't know how else to put that.. but it feels like a 209 V4 that can actually kill things.. except its sublimely beautiful to watch in the air. I've got only the match in it.. but 10 kills the first time out and zero deaths seems like a good start, especially since no gear on it yet.

I thought getting that Ace medal would defeat me and I'd miss out, lol.

It doesn't need to have better turn time because you can 2-3 shot enemies before you even need to turn. By the time a LF or MRF is able to shoot you, you could have already put 1-2 rounds into him so it's a matter of hitting your shots, going H2H that is.

If you miss just keep going forward and boost away. You can prob make 1 more pass but if you keep doing that you'll run out of boost and that LF can catch you.

It can virtually outturn any heavy so only LF & MRF are a threat but if you keep than at distance and make H2H attacks you'll be fine. The problem I've had in my few battles is the BVP's because they have rockets & I can't seem to shake them.

I won't say I am the best in the world at this plane, I am not. I -am- fairly consistent and improving though and its just -fun- to fly. I can't always say that about a plane (that it's fun).

Fast, with big guns, and the Ho-229 is a little fragile.  Yeah, I believe it.  Heavy Fighters with big guns just plain WRECK the Horten.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end
