Yuck.

Guess it's time to run heavies and bash the silly Skillfire pinatas that think they can break orbit.

Interesting wrinkle tying Missions to Period planes on same line :B

I guess I'm gonna get around to re-purchasing Spit I then...

And maybe I'll like Bristol 133/146 better a 2nd time around :sceptic:


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

sadly, all of the Spits that I have are freemiums, giveaways, and the Spit DB.

Dude, just take your work computer home and tell your boss you will work from home.

Less of course your wife is enforcing the honeydo list with an armed response.

That's the problem.  We are both on mandatory "telework" now, stuck at home.  Home internet is always in use.

This mission is reminding me how much I hate the Bristol 146.  It's a Zero with crappy turning and crappy guns.

Yeah, it only gets good when specialized and you can put some lightweight equipment on it. And some pilot skills ... but I never put much effort in the plane, so it's hard fighting on tier IV.

Guns are OK. Enhance your sight so it starts fires.

It's getting sold again as soon as this mission is over.  It's a zero without any of the zero's redeeming features.  The wings break if you look at them funny, it burns like gasoline, doesn't turn well, slow...all in all, it sucks.

I can't call the 146 enjoyable. Looking forward to finishing Part 1.

Just finished part too, the Spit I is much less painful than the Bristol.  On to the XIV

Honestly not hating the 146 so far.

Am hating the 'While Defending' critera since I wasted first couple of battles not realising the requirement :hiding:

And then suddenly everyone & his bot is an expert Defender who choses to camp my cap & steals a bunch of my kills :angry:

I just ran into a guy named Holy_Murphy who beat my Spit XIV in a dogfight with an IL-10.  I'd usually be ashamed, but I flew decently, he was just all over the place then baited me into a bomb drop.  Have to tip my hat to him.

 

EDIT:  Seeing Spitfire pilots complain about too many OP Spitfires was amusing.

Done.

Took a frustrating 9 battles with the Bristol 146.

Just missed out on 6 battles with Spit I.

9 battles with Swift, 1 with Spit XIV for part 3.

 

Its been interesting playing these planes.

I think Spits were 2nd line I got past T5 & I didn't keep either.

 

Swift has been pretty idle since I bought it other than when I Specialised it.

Had a pretty shockingly bad equipment build :ohmy:

I've considerably improved it, mostly enjoyed the battles other than sperging out & failing hard in the one with Desert :hiding:
