I'm looking for a fighter with good speed, maneuverability, and firepower. HP/armor doesn't matter at all to me.

18 battles?  I would say there ain't any Tier X fighters for you just yet.

I know, but I just want to predetermine my line to grind.

The 1101 in the German 109 line is GREAT, you described it in your post.  All lines have their dogs, but the grind is worth both the 1092 and the 1101 (Tiers 9 and 10).

It could just be me, but the I-210 blows. Mig 3 is great though. I'm told the pain of the 210 is worth it to get to T7, time will tell.

I-210 is just one brief hiccup, and for more experienced players it's not even much of a problem. I'm going to buy the I-210 back eventually.

You'll want to look at the P.1101 and the La-15. The P.1101 has immense firepower and excellent altitude but is slower and less maneuverable. The La-15 has better maneuverability and speed but rather mediocre firepower and optimum altitude. The 1101 is generally preferred by most simply because its easier to get to and you don't need to maneuver if your opponents are dead.

Based on username: La-15 or Mig15 bis.

 

La line is a fairly easy intro to the game, similarish gameplay to the Spitfires that are generally recommended as newbie friendly.

I took it up to T6 quickly for the very Soviet La-5 & La-15 was I think my 2nd T10 after the Swift.

 

MiG line is a bit more refined with less turn, more speed and altitude but generally less firepower.

You need to be better at picking your fights but there is more to get out of them when you're doing it right.

From T8 up you get twin 23mm and a 37mm canon which is excellent firepower when you're landing the 37mm but tricky to do regularly.


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

Yak-30 lacks speed, MiG-15bis has relatively poor maneuverability and challenging guns. The 1101 really only makes the list because its firepower is just silly.

Nope. Fast planes generally trade speed for maneuverability.

Or, you know, take the I-215 in the Yak multiroles and deck it out with lightweight air frame, lightweight power unit, polished skin, bolt carriers, and you have a turny meme plane speeding around at 600 km/h with a 57 millimeter derp gun


Destroyers? In my day, we only had torpedo boats!

i like folks who have big dreams            best of luck on your new journey         

 

i personally would learn how the game mechanics work first, using an easy-to-learn Spitfire        and realize it's weaknesses 

 

then fly the 109 line up to the 1101

Also, the EBR 105 is so effective because of its ability to dodge shots. In wowp, smaller caliber shells means you'll be hard-pressed to get into dogfights.

La-15 is better than Yak-30 (but the predecessor La-160 is a nightmare to grind)

Both Messerschmits are very good at T.9 and T.10

You'll want the Messerschmitts fighters (up the Bf 109 line) at tier 9 and 10. The revolver cannons give them supreme firepower while remaining relatively maneuverable and fast enough to chase even heavy fighters for a short distance. It'll lose to planes with more dedicated roles, but the versatility is hard to beat.

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.

OK, but I like harassers that are fast, decent firepower, and maneuverability(so I don't have enemy on my tail) I mean most of my targets are usually bombers that go out on raids to our place. In wot I like the tanks that are arty's worst nightmare.

Decent power is relative in wowp, if you can get on his tail you can wear him down. Try KI fighters? they have decent guns too.

I guess I'll do German because I like boom and zoom warplanes. But are there others besides the soviets that you'd like to recommend. I am already grinding those 2.
