love both the 109B and the 110B, and the Blennie heavy, too            loved the He-112, but i've outgrown it

 

loved the Eule, but i haven't flown it in more than a year            haven't seen a human in one in about the same length of time

 

really love the c-6, but it's a premium so it's not on this list

I mostly have no opinion on them because they can meet tier 5 and double Spitfire I flights is just murder. And these days we get Spitfire I and Bristol 146 split tiers too.

 

None of these planes can compete with a Spec Spit I. The Spit has better acceleration under boost, two long ranged and accurate 20mms, better flat speed, climb and turn than ANYTHING at tier 4. 

 

The only tier 4 that can do anything against that is the 110 C-6. Because you cannot outperform boolet. Hence the only tier 4 I like is the 110 C-6

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Like:
P-36 -I'm currently working on Specialising this, Stock its not that great other than OK speed, decent altitude & powerful MGs, Specialist with Airframe & Engine Equipment slots opened up I expect it to be much more competitive.
Bf109B -Top of the T4 pecking order, its the fastest, highest altitude plane, retains pretty good turn & has good firepower with the 20mm hub cannon.
Hurricane I -Not especially quick or agile but 8* 0.303s & 2* 60s reloading bombs, as long as you pick your targets well it can do a lot of good work.
Blenheim F -Kinda lumbering but among the quicker planes of T4 at least in sustained speed, twin 20mm in the nose supplemented with a 360deg twin tail-gun & 4* internal (no speed penalty) bombs albeit somewhat slow loading -> its great for Token missions.

 

Dislike:
BSh-2 -slow, can't turn & a 1hp enemy can kill you because no tailgunner
Fw189C -I didn't hate it per-se in terms of performance, can't stand the airframe.
Do17Z -bomber
Ki-43-I -too low, too slow, too incendiary, not enough pewpew
Bristol 146 -arguably very strong for tier but ugly as sin & a barely known prototype

 

Neutral:
F2A -I'm working on Specialising it after having the T3 Premium, with 4* 0.50 it has powerful firepower, gonna build it full Cruise/Speed, its not going to be amazing but I think its going to be good for a bit of a blast every now & then.
P-43 -I think I skipped it?
I-16L -I loved the I-16s when I was new but really they're not very good.
I-17 -technically very strong but an unknown prototype.
Ar-2 -bomber
He112 -I skipped it, looks like pretty powerful  but I don't like the proportions.
Bf110B -I only played 2 battles with it, maybe arguably better than Blenheim F.
A6M1 -I have this Specialised & enjoy taking it out from time to time, other times its lack of speed, pewpew, altitude & excessive inflammability are incredibly frustrating.

Me-109B, P-36 and Do-17 are three of my favorite planes.  Both fighters can dominate the high air at tier, and the Pencil is my go-to for several ground target missions due to speed and number of sticks of bombs.  Most of the other Tier IV planes that I fly are freemiums/giveaways.  The C-6 is derptastic. . . .

I haven’t played too many lines and I just recently started breaking into the German tree. 

Like:

 

P-36- Stock it’s a decent aircraft. Good speed, powerful machine gun armament for the tier, and somewhat forgiving in turns. I mostly enjoyed having it as a platform to get better at BnZ flying in a US plane. It set up for a very successful and enjoyable P-40 run. 

 

LaGG-3/4- Not entirely sure why or how I got this thing, must have had a few bucks laying around. It’s certainly outside my preferred BnZ speed demon mount, but it’s just fun to fly. It has an odd gun set up of 2 .30 cal MG’s and 1.50 cal MG firing through the prop arc and a 20mm hub mounted cannon. This makes it a sniper plane with a bit more damage in between 20mm bursts. The rockets just give you an opportunity to pick up some easy points. 
 

Being so low to the deck all the time makes me a bit antsy and can limit what you can do though, especially against the British and Japanese turn birds that you’ll constantly see.  

 

Bristol 146- Having read through some of the meta discussions here (the subreddit is dead af, so I’m glad to see this forum is a bit more active) people might disagree with me, but I feel like turn fighters still have a good advantage at Tier IV. This plucky little fighter has netted me some real ace games. The placement of cap points at TIV don’t seem spread enough to make its speed a real detriment. Rename this thing the Firebat ‘cause this thing turns up the heat dishing out fires. 
 

Neutral:

 

He 112- A bit awkward in that feels like a jack-of-all trades fighter. It turns, but you’re still not going to do it better than the usual suspects and it’s climb feels meh. It is responsive though. The extra 20mm cannon is nice, but they overheat so fast. That middle fighter line that splits into the FW-190 and Bf 109 lines has been interesting in that they’re sort of polar opposite of what the German fighters are known for. I’m looking forward to finishing a couple more wins in this thing and moving on to the Bf 109 line for the moment. 

Dislike:

 

F2A- Holy crap... If I never have to fly this blunt with popsicle wings piece of crapin this or ANY OTHER flight game again it’ll be too soon. I hate this thing historically, aesthetically, and in every game I’ve encountered it in from IL-2, Aces High, and on. The four .50’s are its only redeeming quality... If you can ever get them on target. 

Bsh-1- You’re ugly, you have no defensive gunner which among other things stunts your gunner, and nobody likes you! 

 

I’m looking forward to finishing up on the Fw-57 and checking out the Bf 110B

Like:  109B, 110B, F2A, 1-17, Hurricane I

 

Dislike P43, P36

 

Neutral on everything else.  Realistically I should put all the GAA down as dislike because I dislike them as a style in general, but that seems unfair.  They might be good or not good, and I wouldn't know because I dislike playing them.  Same deal with bombers.
