I wonder what its module layout will be -- double engines (like XP-50)? or perhaps double armament?  one of each?

Is it a bad copy of the Jap planes that look like that?

@blindfold If the new plane is in the game can you tell us when we can look at it in the "Warplanes" information section of the website? I can't find any information on this plane?

 

As well, the problem with the XP-50 is that it isn't worth playing over other tier 6 heavy fighter options. So, hopefully this premium is actually worth buying and playing. Otherwise it's a waste of a new plane. Any buffs planned to the XP-50 in this regard?

You would think that right? However there are now two separate P-82 premium aircraft in this game and yet, after months, there is still only one listed on the website in the warplanes section. So, I am actually going to assume that the website will NOT be updated with new plane information because so far, it isn't being updated with recently added planes.

The F-82E is not on the tech tree page or on the page of heavy fighters for the US.

 

It is on the site, however - https://worldofwarpl.../usa/tree/F-82E - it's just not linked to anything else (far as I can tell) which makes it difficult to find.  It also has some CSS and other issues.

This event will be quite similar to Crimson Dawn event. Different modes for weekends and an Operation Order for a new plane. It's planned for the end of May :honoring:

I... I hope I misunderstood this.

the event to get the Swoose Goose is to *begin* late May? that is, a full month from now, from the update of 2.1.6?

When your plane is too American

 

even more American tomfoolery on this plane! 

 

the prototype had the ability to have the entire nose section swivel up and down...     aim 3 degrees up or 6 degrees down

 

must have been a nightmare to fly, but great ground visibility, i guess         land with a semi-chub to amuse your buds

IDK, been a while since I last followed WOWP's event. Last time I remembered, when "a plane is coming with version X and will be obtainable via event" it would start within days after the update.

Seems the bug with completing the Game mission has been fixed. All of the sudden I got a bunch of messages that I completed reassembly, scored something or other, etc.

Can we take a moment to acknowledge just how crazy the american tree is getting? 

It is almost getting to the point where we have enough planes to form lines for individual Manufacturers.
Like the Republic line of Attackers that just fly too fast and high to qualify as an in game attacker.

This new Vultee xp54  and its bigger counter rotating prop upgrade the xp-68 really does fill that blank spot between the Lockheed Lightnings and their tier 8 premium variant. (even uses that 37 mm cannon)

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.

I really appreciate these updates, especially with new stuff and identified bug fixes in them.

 

Any chance a future update in the near future will include an update to the WoWP API?  The dictionary hasn't been updated since 12/19/2019, the Asia server is not enabled for the API (it is for Tanks and Warships), there are numerous placeholders for aircraft and medals, and some aircraft (F5F, F-82E) and medals (tier medals like Boyington) are completely missing.

 

I will forward this information to the team and will try to get some news about the API, thank you for your report.

The XP-54 page will be available closer to the Flaming Hawk in-game event, it will be linked in the dedicated news article. Regarding the F5F and F-82E pages, one can find them here: the Grumman F5F Skyrocket and the North American F-82E Twin Mustang. These pages, however, are not available for comparison and are not listed in the tech tree lines. We are aware of this issue, apologies for the inconvenience. 

At the moment we don't plan any changes to the XP-54 characteristics.

Thanks Blindfold!  I can provide the plane and achievement IDs that have placeholder information if that would help the team.   Alternatively, I can submit a ticket with the issues.
