Hi all,

 

I've been putting a pile of hours on the Ki-61 since I started playing. I was wondering what other Ki-61 pilots run for equipment and pilot skills (my pilot has 10 points). Also I was thinking with all the special equipment recently what ones are worth it for this plane ?

 

Thanks Everyone.

i tend to run gun sight, LWF, polish and boost injection. the Ki's have good alt and boost for turn fighters. a generalist build has worked for me. just offset the slight nerf to your maneuverability with turn consumable.

with that attitude...

you've blown any chance at the coveted:

Community Ace Award


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.

If you are seeking a build that enables you to have a competitive advantage over others, then you need to realize that if such a build were posted publicly, that it would quickly lose its value if adopted by the masses.  Advantage comes from being not the same, but different.  Therefore, if you want advantage, you should get the advice 1-on-1 (not on a public forum) or else be willing to do the work of figuring it out for yourself.

 

(Also -- this is not a new player asking how to basically equip is plane -- it's a veteran with 10 skills and 6,000+ battles to his credit.)

 

SO IT IS CLASSIFIED :)

I don't think there's enough of a competitive arena in this game to warrant trying to hide your builds. The game is basically PvE at this point with a rumored PvP mode coming soon™... Anyone who knows anything about the game already knows the basic setups to have the 'competitive' plane in whichever build style they choose. Hiding information from those who ask is (in my opinion) an extension of the seal-clubber mentality and counterproductive to growing the game.

It only has an Airframe & Cockpit slot right?

From recollection I went for Gunsight & Polished skin, which negatives the turning but at its tier Heavies and big gunned Multirole/Lights are a big threat -> tried to maximise my ability to get out of the way & it still out-turned nearly everything anyway.

 

That said I didn't much enjoy it as it was still too slow & fragile.

 

I went for Reinforced Airframe on Ki-84 just to give it a bit more durability, may have actually switched to that on the Ki-61 part way through. (with Specialist I added Lightweight Wings & Uprated Engine)

 

My pilot was only 6pts, both Engine Gurus & Fire Fighter because maximise ability to get out of the way and Ki line burns a lot.

With 10pts I'd probably take Aerodynamics & Aerobatics Expert, maybe the Durability one instead of the latter?


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

All of my fighter and multi role planes i use speed builds.

They already out turn the planes they are suppose to out turn even with the speed build.

And yes all my Japanese planes have speed builds and they still out turn everything.

They also get there faster than what they use too.

 

Like today. I started training in the F6U. tried different builds for the limited slots.

Lost more than my fair share of matches trying to turn fight. Yeah even with the first engine

it wont turn fight, nor the second.

Once I got the final engine I finally caught on to boom and zoom with it.

My only problem with it now is the guns over heat so fast and got to treat the trigger like a lady.

That is until I can specialize and unlock the guns.

Hmm Boost injection may have to try that for some reason I have light weight power unit in the engine slot. But over all whats more useful Boost injection or up-rated engine ?

 

Other slots im running Sights, Light weight wing, reinforced air frame

boost equipment makes your boost more powerful as well as increasing your boost speed. paired with engine cooling consumable this lets you catch targets off guard, engage targets quicker and regain altitude quicker.

 

as i said before i run boost equipment on my entire Ki line, all the way up to tier ten. It has worked very well for me. it allows you to be more flexible in your rolls, your not just a turn fighter. with a generalist build you can do pretty much anything.

 

if you have the ability to try out different builds, i recommend doing so until you find the build that is comfortable for you.

Makes alot of sense. I'll have to give this a try with the boost. Thanks for all the input and good hunting to all. See you in the skies.
