Hi, while working on the WoWP History project, I discovered an event that I must have missed (03/2016) for the I-180-3, that rewarded a unique Gun Camera module that boosted credits/xp, and a unique paintjob that improved speeds by 5%.  I was just wondering if anyone had any pictures or info on either of these -- the module is not listed in the full equipment list (04/2019).

 

Here is the developer blog entry (03/2016) on the plane that mentions the module and paint job.  The modules were rewarded for completing all mission in the Spring Offensive event (03/2016).

 

Block Quote

 The main new feature that we are adding with the Polikarpov I-180-3 is the introduction of unique modules. Along with the new fighter, every player who successfully completes all the missions in the Spring Offensive special will receive a Gun Camera equipment piece that further increases both credits and experience awards for battles, and a unique custom paint job that improves speed parameters by 5%. It’s important to emphasize that these parts are unique — they can only be installed on the I-180-3.

 

 

Thank you for your time and interest.

Dern, I missed it also.  I have none of that available for that plane.

I wonder if other special equipment is also not mentioned in the list.  Like the special radar module that goes in the cockpit slot on the Tu-1.  Only works on the Tu-1, and you had to win it.

 

Edit:

 

Of course, after I post, I notice that you've linked the list, and yes, the Tu-1 radar is in there.

I knew about the super chrome paint that adds 5% to cruise speed and 5% to max speed (unlike the usually 3% to cruise speed only of normal chrome paint)  I am missing it and I want it.  There are 4 of them, one for each season that are all different colors (green for summer, orange for winter, blue for marine, and yellow for desert)   The bonus is the same as the kostikov 302 but the I180 has 4 paint schemes that do the same thing but they are seasonal instead of universal.  Bubba Zenetti posted pics here What paint jobs are available? - In Game Aircraft Discussion - World of Warplanes North American official forum - Page 2

 

I was not aware of the gun camera equipment.  I wonder how the new equipment system introduced just after 2.0 affected it.  Does it even still exist?  All the old equipment is gone so how did that make it through?  Also it refers to it as both a module and a piece of equipment so which one is it?

"...has the maximum characteristics value and does not require any upgrades"...

 

Maybe more equipments can be introduced like this...

It would be nice to see them sell the gun camera and the paint in a bundle.  I already have the I-180 but I would buy it again and take the gold just to get the paint and equipment

2nd.

And, as long as it's in a bundle, a 5-point pilot.
