For me It's the A-26B.  I find it inconsistent to start with but when it's lower Tier in a battle, it's just about hopeless.

 

What's yours?

 

 

Fi-98.  There's a reason it was free. Weak guns, weak bombs, poor maneuverability, poor survivability...it lacks it all. It's the worst attack plane and my choice for worst plane.

 

Sorry about double post. I thought I was kicked out then the first one shows up after I posted the second.

But other than those minor flaws, what's wrong with it?   giggle

If you get lucky it ain't so bad. Long video - just cut to the end and see results.

What I like about the 98 is its ability to fool an enemy human who is not paying enough attention.  It does turn faster than a lot of GAAs (I think) and an LF can find itself in inescapable trouble fast.  Also, I do love to bomb kill, and in low tiers there are new pilots who need to learn the hard way why the GAA they are following and blasting is slowing down and getting low.  :trollface:

 

Closer, closer, ... yesss..... BAM ba LAM another bomb kill!

Might be a little controversial but I'm presently playing it maxed out - the TU12.  It just does not quite have the height nor speed so even light fighters can eat it alive if you go high altitude and the traditional NAPE flying suffers even more, which is odd as I would say it's previous 3 or 4 tiers actually up-tier rather well.
Player on the EU servers, hence the low number of battles here.

As a general rule ... everything in Tier 7.

The tier as a whole is pretty well balanced among themselves. Which is great.
Barring most of your rock-paper-scissors match ups between Hard counters; player skill wins the day overall.
So yeah that can be very satisfying. (or a useful learning experience)

the downside to this is that because they are so well balanced with each other they all have the same issues when up-tiered.
Namely each tier 7 has a tier 8 nemesis singing this same tune ...
 

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...
