So, I will reverse the other trending topic and ask this:  What plane do you like to be playing when you are the lower tier?

 

For me, it's the P-43 (T4).  When doing token missions it's my go-to plane if the token mission permits.  Climbs well, turns OK, drops bombs, has pretty good close-in guns, and the speed is something to reckon with.

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

I would add Me-109B and the Pancake to this list for myself, in place of the Ki-102 and Tu-1 (which I don't have.)   As usual, KamiFox is wise.

The 109 line, with exceptions being the 109F and G (and obviously the 1101, which cannot be lower tier. Heh.).  The Ki-84, also.

De-arse your bunks! Man the planes! The Fokkers are in sight! BAM ba LAMMM!

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

all of these except... well, you know, a couple several of these       but i would add the 110b      and the i-220      and the 210

 

 

seriously, SFMY could fly half of his hangar downtiered, and still outhink the other team to a win         

 

so many times, he's done just that... while i was barely contributing     maybe stealing a couple of his kills or something

Why hate on the 109G? Its quick, agile, small target & the Mk108 kills stuff pretty quick.
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

I got my I-17 up to 114 on maneuverability so I think it's my best low tier plane.

Ki-43-II Peregrine Falcon, I like to fly with a Tier 7 wingman. Against higher tier aircraft it wipes the sky, but against same-tier planes it feels like a letdown.
