I think I may go ahead and buy the F-86 at that discount.

What this old thing? 

 Retaliation Strike

Reward:
7e7bed850ae3475fa01a608f0e1831c5.png +25% crew experience

To complete the mission, you'll need to destroy
1 American fighter in a single battle.

Restrictions:

  • Repeatable mission;
  • Once per battle.
     

 It has always been that way.
For as long as I can remember, Every single "Grind That <insert some tech tree branch> Line, Get That Loot, Enjoy Reduced Prices" event has had a headhunters clause.
For people that for what ever reason do not want to directly participate but still can get some thing out of it.

Do you not like <American light fighters> for some reason?  [COUGH garbage DPS COUGH
 Yet somehow COUGH GodTier DPM COUGH]
well if you manage to get at least one american fighter in any other plane in the game then enjoy an additional 25% xp buff for the battle.

As for the rest ...

So we get a discount on planes but NO discount on hangars. 

I do not need the hangars but I am sure there are several players that could use the hangars 

Instead of selling off a plane to fit a new one into rotation.

:unsure:

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

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.

Welp, it appears as though the P-51H is going to get some love this weekend.  100,000 damage points is a lot.  That's a BUNCH of bombers that need to get shot down.  Well, they need that anyway, which is neither here nor there.

that's when everyone is poking up over the cubicle partitions to see what the fuss is about, much like a group of prairie dogs popping out of their burrows to look around.

Hey Wargaming, still waiting for the balance patch that buffs machineguns

AGREED.

 

Wow, playing the 51H was painful.  And the Fury is going to take some time just to get to elite, never mind earning XP for the F-86.

If the guns were just a *little* stronger on the P-51 line, it would be seriously dangerous.  As in, gives all the other fighters at-tier a run for their money.

 

I would like them to give a bit better DPS, traded for cooldown.  I would also like them to get a bit better range.  Yes, it says they go to 600-700m, but the real range is about 350-400m.  It would be nice to extend that out to 500-550m.
