I've just come back to WOWP (after a bit of a holiday) and was blasted out of the sky with a single burst from a Tu-1 in my first two flights.

 

So I am curious about this 'Wunderwaffe' and want to try it out. I'm no ace, but I can usually live with level VI heavy fighters, and am not used to going from full health to shredded in one hit, LOL!

 

But I can't find it listed in the Premium Shop, or on the Tech Tree - so where is it lurking? :unsure:

It was a special like the Vampire/Ascender where you had to do a list of specific missions to get the plane.  So far its been only offered once.  Same thing with the Ho 229 Fighter

i gleefully choose it every time i'm forced to fly T7, which isn't often         

 

i'm no sniper, but it seems to click for me        

 

the different calibers seem to travel the same trajectory, which is unusual for most planes       tap, tap, boom       there's a small puff of smoke way over there 

 

it's a 12 ton retrofitted bomber IRL, and that pedigree rarely works out well in wowp      i don't see it in battles much, but if you're a HF fan, grab it

Why you got blown out of the sky: 2* 45mm in the nose & 2*23mm in the wing roots.

 

I haven't been playing it much recently but when I had my eye in it is a thing of beauty :playing:

 

 

Historically it was a late WWII/early post-war high altitude bomber interceptor prototype but abandoned due to jets.

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

https://en.wikipedia...ki/Tupolev_Tu-1

The Tupolev Tu-1 was a prototype Soviet night fighter variant of the Tupolev Tu-2 medium bomber that first flew after the end of World War II. It was cancelled when its experimental Mikulin AM-43V engines reached the end of their service life.
