Review and first battle in the new Polish P.38 Wilk flighted up with VeeBat of HVAR. The Wilk is an awesome little ball of terror; with the cute looks of an adolescent Bf.110B and firepower on par with the Do.17Z-7, she is an excellent premium aircraft that excels at elimination of enemy bombers, heavies and ground attack. Her 300kg bomb is largest in class for several tiers and her tailgun is like having another fighter strapped to your backside. Definitely a good buy!

Thanks for the review, Magus.  I'm off to the dealership right now.

BTW what is the name of that cutely infectious song you had on for the last few minutes?

 

Edit (same day):  Thanks to Queek for the song name.

 

The plane is a gas to fly, the cannon is competent and that BOMB!  A 660 lb bomb does devastating damage.

The P.38 Wilk has put some bounce back in the game for me.

Really appreciate the tip, Magus, thanks!

For a P.38, that plane doesn't have enough tail booms. And why aren't you flying the Horton exclusively??

I'm puzzled by this plane and the "Europe" tree in general - why can't I either change the nationality to France or put my french pilots who are now "European" in this plane as it is?!?!  Argh!  I was hoping to get more XP for my french pilots.  (China is not an option, either)

that's just wrong!    If Europe is a nation now, we should be able to swap pilots between planes


unless you've already assigned the Wilk to another nation?

Nope, I wanted it for my french pilots.  But you can't change its nation to France, or to China.  Although my french pilots are now in "Europe" I click on the P.38 crew spot and none of my french pilots are offered to put in the plane.

Weird.  That may be an oversight, or on purpose since France is premium planes only.  You can't make the other Euro planes Polish, for example, or Israeli, or Czech, etc.

 

I'd make a suggestion to WG that the Euro tech line should be fully Euro compatible (for a fee) and they may listen.

I'd think that technically they'd all be "Europe" planes and "Europe" pilots.  It's odd that you CAN make them into non-Europe planes (except China whoknowswhy), but can't make them compatible with other "Europe" planes.

Does the Wilk have a camo for +20% crew training ?

Would make it ideal for training bomber/heavy crews for countries that have no low tier two-seaters (like Japan).

That would be great.  I would buy it just for that purpose - training my Japan HF crews.

Nope, no 20% crew training ... I bought it anyway.

It now flies with the Jap "meatballs" and the Ki-93 crew. 

 

The bomb is great. Too bad there's only one and it has a long re-load.

Not really. Compared to the Fw57 and Do17Z-7, it's bomb reload is excellent for the sheer power of its weapon

This is correct; my comment in the video on the reload speed being "fuhgettaboutit" is erroneous.  Drop the bomb on first penetration, then flip the zone with aircraft kills.  Move to next zone.  9 times out of 10, her bomb reload of 120 seconds will have elapsed by the time you arrive at the next zone.

Rinse.
Repeat.

Win.
Profit.
