Sometime ago there was there was mention of a special pilot for Me 410.  I think it was between 02/2021 and 08/2021.  Just wondering if that is still on the horizon.  Thank you for your time and interest.

There were announcements for;

 

1-High tier American bombers

 

2- German pilot Albrecht Schneider, trained for the Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse heavy fighter 

Update 2.1.5 | World of Warplanes

 

3- Experimental Reinforced Airframe (Period II, III)

Experimental Long Gun Barrels (Periods I, II, III)

Update 2.1.9 | World of Warplanes

 

4- Hawk Supply crates 

Update 2.1.9 | World of Warplanes

 

We haven't received any of them yet.

 

Experimental reinforced airframe would be good for American bombers.  A heavy pilot and experimental long gun barrels would be good for killing American bombers.  Hawk crates have experimental turret armor which is only good for bombers, experimental polished skin, and experimental reinforced bolt carriers which could help chase down and kill bombers.  I'm expecting some sort of event to release them all together but I was disappointed it was not the Christmas event.  The American bombers could have been like the British multiroles  when they first did the candy cane trail.  Albrecht Schneider would have replaced Rudolf Hawker.

Well they did give us the Pez Dispenser at Tier III.  That's a start, maybe?  If you squint real hard that French emblem looks like an American emblem.  And Tier III is almost Period III, ain't it?  DOH

 

:(

 

My EX promised to be faithful, too.  Promises are made to be broken, I suppose.

Thank you for very thorough reply.  Here's hoping we see this unique pilot in game soon.  Might be a great response/alternative to XP-54.

You forgot one of the very first announcements they made when the game was initially released, which was CLAN WARS.  Hope you guys waiting for this stuff have better luck than those of us that wanted clan wars.

How do you make an already-powerful HF even more powerful?  Stick a special pilot in it!

 

Or, we could get the Cadman Miller version of a HF pilot.  Skills that offer no value at all to the plane for which he is designed.

 

Or, add yet another HF to counter THAT HF - the Westland Whirlwind.  Make it just a little faster, just a little more altitude, and just a little bit more turny.  But make it fragile.  A straight-up counter, but not strong enough to tip the balance.
