So in Tier 4, the Model 81A-1 is just dominating the play. 

 

No one plays it, not even the bots, but even so, the threat that someone, someday, somehow will take this hangar queen out and play it intimidates me to no end.

 

I am afraid to go for tokens at the lower tiers in the fear that someone might decide to turn the crank on this total death-dealer and plink, plink, plink me to death.

 

END THE MADNESS!

It would be nice if it was buffed, just a little.  Something - speed, firepower, altitude - SOMETHING.

Anything.

 

Please.

It is VERY late for me. I almost fired up the game client to fly this plane, then I read Corvax's post and remembered the " plink plink plink" words.

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

100 battles and a 59 % win rate with the only plane in the sky 

built by Airsoft is pretty good. 

So take your  " pink pink pink " 

and join a match

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Which is why I responded as I did.  The proto-Warhawk is pathetically weak.  It needs some sort of buff.

Basically it does fine in tier 4 leveraging a noticable altitude buff at the expense of a small manuverability nerf. It's even a bit OP in the right hands. (or if you potato it still is kinda meh)  
Which is what you want in a pay to play premium.
BUT it does get balanced Hard when Uptiered. If you potato you are done. If you are skilled, you still have to wear your TryHard pants in order to carry the day.

Model 81A-1

The plane is FAST, and still has an 8 second boost after depleting a can.  The 2 12.7mm MZ (s) beebee guns are indeed useful when you are as close as you can get to the target's tail pipe.  It has decent control significantly above its max alt, turns well.  Mine is specc'd, but just stock spec, and got #1,  7 kills, 3 sectors.

 

It is a plane that needs to be flown like most of us do not, STRATEGICALLY. Always Be Cappin'.  Also, watch radar and have a good rear view mirror.  STRATEGIC. 

 

Not a carry plane, but a dangerous one in the right hands.

I think it would be just about right with a single 30 cal in each wing.

Took her out. Downtier. Got owned by the Bf-109E. My Bomber flipped the Mining Plants, I was busy getting shot down. 


 
So say we all.

InfiniZ3ro flies it very well       his particular edge is that he's a precise aimer

 

the T5 P-40 is more forgiving, and even i do well in the P-40       or used to, haven't flown it it a long time

 

wait, we've flown it in SNL and had fun      let's do it again tonight?

That's what the Model 81A had, according to wikipedia.  It's not the greatest of sources, but I don't presently have anything better on P-40 variants.  Wikipedia describes the Model 75p (XP-40) as having just 2 .50 cal, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that it had provisions for 2 .30 in each win.

 

The AVG aircraft were equivalent to P-40B/C, which is the Tomahawk IIb.  You could probably make a reasonable argument that it's underpowered for T5 and might work better in T4, but I am not quite sure I am ready to go that far.  I feel like the P-40B is more of a T4.5 aircraft.

Every game has garbage vehicles and then was just something they gave away for a few dumb missions way back.  If you actually bought this plane I feel bad for you.
