thanks FVE


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.

And overheat?  One shot, that's it.  Meh.

No, you won't get a pilot, only a mission for the decoration set.

I figured it out,you have to be close and very conservative on the trigger and getting behind someone in this plane is easy.

1 second bursts and overheating wont be a problem. Definitively not a spray and play plane.

Next to my spit this one is also amazing in maneuverability.

If you like spits you will like this zero.

I got this bundle and I like this plane so far. I kinda treat it like my IL-1: just stay low and turn n' burn. It is a bit slow.

 

Works pretty well against GAs and any fighter or multiroles that want to rumble, unless they get you from high with cannons, then it turns into a winged matchbox.

 

I also like how it works against heavies when they get too greedy and venture to low-altitude; get a critical with those 30mm's and they can't escape. Only one to give me trouble was a player in a SE 100. He was pretty good with booming and zooming low.

It can drop,dive and run with the best of them and then turn in behind your attacker and crit hit him with 3 three 1 second bursts.

1 gun tap=one engine in flames,2 gun taps=2 engines in flames,third shot is the cockpit which will put him out of business.

It's a zero so wont take hits for any length of time which means breaking off from a kill a lot to perform evasive maneuvers.

It's a sniper and a dogfighter and it's crazy in a dog fight if that's your cup of tea.

ZnB pilots will hunt you like a dog though so you have to watch for that and dont try follow them back to the heavens.

Next to my spit DVB this plane is one of my favourites for dogfighting in a furball and the two planes are similar.

That 30 mm will also take out bombers.:B

I've always wondered whats the point of "+5% aircraft XP" on a premium plane when there is nothing to research and most people are running it for pilot training and or Credits.?

^^^this.

 

I guess, if you leave plane experience on, then you later convert it to free XP...

When you activate the plane XP going to your pilot it adds that +5% to the pilot via what it added to the plane XP before it calculates and goes over to the pilot.

 You always can convert aircraft XP into Free XP or use you premium aircraft to train your pilots - just press "accelerate crew training" and all you aircraft XP gained in battle goes to your pilot.

5% xp is still 5% xp.  While a premium plane doesn't have modules, it still earns xp.  This xp can be converted to free xp, for gold. 

 

Or, what most people probably do, select "crew training" from the crew drop down menu to divert the airplane's xp to the crew (in addition the base bonus that premium planes offer to crew xp).  In that case, the crew is receiving the base bonus to crew xp and all the aircraft xp (which includes the 5% from the paint).
