2.1?

I personally feel they are going the wrong way

For me personally, <2.0 would be better

:)... jus' sayin


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.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the stats of an aircraft selected in the carousel that has been upgraded due to the installed equipment, to be projected to other machines' info in the Hangar. This bug didn't affect the real battle stats of the aircraft.

That was a bug? :unsure: I genuinely thought that was a feature. A particularly useful if annoying to use feature. I could compare airplanes in their specialist form so I knew more or less what the max stats on any opponent would look like.

Also, the way the new premiums work, they should be called "conquered nations of Europe" and their planes can be assigned to any of the major nations because their own nations have pretty much ceased to exist for the duration of WW2 :trollface:

"New Special Reward Aircraft"

 

I don't see aircraft listed as rewards for the Personal Ratings, are these planes part of that or something else?

Based on conversations on the official Discord (last time I was there anyway) the P-82 Twin Mustang is a reward plane for introducing friends to World of Warplanes and "having them attain a certain level..." of performance, length of time in game... I don't remember.

 

All I remember is the jokes about creating hundreds of fake accounts.

All special aircraft sooner or later appear in the Premium Shop as a part of special offers. The Horten won't be an exception. So pilots who want their Horten should keep an eye on our special offers in the Premium Shop. :)

Well, it's a really neat observation, still it wasn't supposed to be like that. It was reported lots of times and here's a fix.

Special Aircraft appear as a part of special offers or in-game events. Personal Ratings never had an aircraft as a reward :)

No. We just get a medal every month. :P

IMHO it is not worth the money, get Ta 152 for free, it is pretty much better plane in overall. It looks great though but is more fragile than J8M imho. looks dope af though

 

 

Also,

 

patchnotes - ability to switch EU's plane nation's alignment? for the first time persha has came up with an actually good idea, I guess

IMHO, the Horten is a better plane simply because of better gun handling and the speed to escape trouble.

Another question to blindfold :

 

The new G-Suit equipment description says "maneuverability at high speeds". What does it mean by that? What defines high speed? What difference is it from other maneuverability mods such as LWF and LPU which have smaller maneuverability bonuses?

Question: The G-Suit's bonus characteristics say that you have the option to get +4 and +6 percent maximum altitude. Does this also increase high altitude performance as in speed and maneuverability? Does it increase optimum altitude?

They are both similar but the Ta-152 beats the Horten at high altitude dogfights. The Horten has it beaten in airspeed unless you put equipment on either plane. For example. My Ta-152 has 76 airspeed, 410 mph cruise speed and somewhere between 536-587 mph boost speed (can't quite remember). You could probably get the Horten faster that that but it all depends on what configuration you want on the plane. But also remember that The Horten has a jet engine and the Ta-152 has a prop engine. This sets both the planes apart right there. IMO jet propelled fighters generally do better than prop fighters because of the thrust output and speed at medium to low altitudes. But they don't do as well in high altitudes as prop fighters. That is why the Ta-152 will have a great advantage over the Horten in high altitude

 

Edit: spelling mistakes
