I think I already know the answer to this, but I'd really like to get the Ho. 229 somehow, but I missed the event earlier this year. It's one of my favorite planes, and I was just on a break from Warplanes over the summer. I read a post from someone else suggesting it could still be gotten somehow, but it was too expensive for them. Is there a way to get it that I'm just missing? I don't see it anywhere.

Probably wait six months to a year. It'll probably get added to the premium shop at some point (probably soon) given how popular and OP it is.

I thought this was a post about why nobody is flying them.

They're pretty rare to see.

I think even at peak there were fewer being flown than Tu-1s, still see Tu-1 more often.

 

And its weird because they are dangerous as heck.

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

Well, your encounter with me should give you an idea - they're a lot less forgiving than the Tu-1 in terms of gunnery and a lot more fragile. They also have a lot more competition for a player's attention being at tier 8 where there are a LOT of really powerful premiums and tech tree airplanes

Makes me sad I missed it. Ahwell. Like you said, it'll come around into the Premium shop rotation eventually.
