Because that anon requested it be an M5A1 edition, and the M5A1 is a excellent tonk, also, holy fuck, pic related.
So what do you guys listen to while flying?
This is one of my favorites al la Dr. Strangelove
Thank you kind sir for this edition.
M5A1 is radicool.
I would pay actual money for that.
I have no idea what your image is supposed to mean so I substituted it with my imagination.
vegeta's plan is pure genius
he foresaw the islamic invasion of europe and realized european genes are far too diverse, in order to accomplish his goals he got his girlfriend pregnant at age 14
when his daughters come of age he will impregnate them, the resullting childrens genes will be more pure than that of most europeans
he does not stop there however, he will continue the cycle and with each iteration the genes will become more pure
i would not be surprised if in 100 years his 5th generation son was the emperor of europe, fulfilling hitlers dream of one unified europe nad one pure master race
I don't understand this meme, the British had a Mk II spitfire and a Mk II hurricane and a Mk II matilda tank but some retardposter isn't sperging about the british war industry assigning its things the same Mk number.
The point is that if you said "what kind of plane is that" and I said "it's a Mk II" you still wouldn't know what it was, you need more information: "it's a spitfire mk II".
If you say "what kind of rifle is that" and I say "it's an M4 rifle" you don't say "isn't that a ww2 tank xd?!?!?!" although you might because it seems like you might be retarded.
The M literally stands for "model", and it's meaningless without context, just like the "mk" system. Stop sperging.
Except that is literally the name of the tank, gun, truck etc. mentioned. The M3 Lee, the M3 Stuart, the 90mm M3, the 75mm M3, the 20mm M3 cannon, or the 20mm M2 cannon, the 20mm M24 cannon (ALL OF WHICH ARE NAMES FOR THE 20MM HISPANO).
>What tank is that?
Oh, that's an M3
>No way, the M3 has that big gun in the hull and the smaller one up top.
Spitfire is the actual name of the plane, the model number is just the model number, unlike the American things, where M3 is the actual name, and Lee/Grant/Stuart are just nicknames.
The proper name of the vehicle is stuff like "medium tank, M3" or "aircraft cannon, 20mm, M2". Again, without context the M-number is meaningless, which is why they supply context when they name these things.
>without context the M-number is meaningless
A name that doesn't work if you don't have context.
Brilliant. Pure military genius. How incredibly efficient of the Americans. Instead of using combinations of the 26 letters in our alphabet and the literally endless amount of numbers.
The flamethrower is called flamethrower M1.
The helmet is called helmet M1.
The bayonet is called bayonet M1.
The rifle is called rifle M1.
If you got told to put your M1 on your head, fix your M1 to your M1, and charge the enemy, would you put your rifle on your head and fix your bayonet to your helmet? Are you retarded?
>he still sees absolutely nothing wrong with this system
I see now how this system was implemented in the first place. Additionally, I have gained insight as to why Americans continue using an archaic measurement system nationwide.
>I reaaaaaaally don't think a tank column, a British one at that, will be encountering typhoons.
literally happened on multiple occasions, they think it was a carbon monoxide leak
It's autism on the scale of /gsg/. I think the whole discussion is retarded. Sure the US naming system was stupid, but that's what they decided on. Bitching about it now for the sake of autism changes absolutely nothing. Let's bitch about the game or something, this crap is just hard to read.
>Not being good
How about we talk about G-lock
Anyone else get LOST CONTROL after they stopped pulling Gs? It's happened to me a few times in the past couple days.
Thoughts on G-Lock as well, I think it's a good addition since it prevents shitters from going nuts.
Depends on stats but you can reliably pull and hold 6-7Gs
I can edge wing overload in my Horten at 11Gs for maybe five or six seconds if I REALLY need to evade, but other than that you're better off staying at 6-7Gs and 9Gs if you really need to pull up.
Best guess is that you start draining stamina energy once you go over the g limit listed in the crew skill page (governed by g-tolerance skill), stamina drain rate being proportional in some way to how far over you go, and then once you drain all your stamina you "lost control".
Kek, nice one anon.
It just gives you SLIGHTLY better RNG for getting pilot sniped. Though it could just be the Horten because almost half of my deaths are from pilot snipes from a single round. Any other plane I don't have this kind of issue.
>tfw pilot sniped from the rear by a stray round from a friendly trying to clear your six
>He won't take it's okay for a response when he starts apologizing profusely
I've been pilto sniped from behind in a fresh 229 more often than I'd like. Doesn't help the pilot's head is above the fuselage and can be hit without hitting the plane itself. I'm probably just making something out of nothing.
Shit happens, anon. Surviving 23/37mm cannons is pretty damn handy.
I imagine that's largely because the most common anti-horten weapon, US .50s, are largely ineffective against the rest of the horten. Easily 75% of my horten kills in the p-80 were pilot snipes just because when the bullets land in other places they don't really do anything
the other 25% are from bullets landing in other places and not really doing anything and then the 229 pilot throwing the mouse across the room, breaking his wings and awarding me a kill
Nah, the hortens cockpit really does have shitty positioning. It becomes really clear with a few aircraft. I know people bitch about the 410 not have an armoured glass cockpit is because they get shot through it so much, I've had it happen to me more than enough.
Go for the wings, least in my experience that's the other main cause of death in it. Shots to the wingtips will cut it off and a good burst to the wing just outside the engine generally will either fuck the plane to hell or light it on fire irrevocably. Granted your goal is to just hit the fucking thing, specifying targets on it comes second.
Honestly shooting centre target is a pretty good tactic with the 229. You've got two engines and one pilot within close proximity, all of which are critical targets that can pretty much guarantee a kill.
I loved seeing 229s in my Bearcat. They were so overconfident in their turning ability, and presented a MASSIVE target going for a complete deflection turn, if only for a few moments. A few moments is more than enough with 20mm stealth rounds.
>Only advantage the 229 has over the Bearcat is outright top speed
It accelerates like dogshit unless you're diving.
Least it feels pretty even to me, and I fly both the Bearcats and the 229.
Ehhhhhhh.... I would've agreed with you, back before Gaijin broke the Bearcats knees with a baseball bat and gave the Horten high performance fantasy engines.
Now it's more like a fist getting repeatedly smashed into my face every time I fly it.
The 229 is one of the few planes I'm not afraid to engage in the Bearcat.
Zoom and then bank back around and dive as he comes out of the turn.
Most 229 pilots are too stupid to use the airbrakes anyways it seems.
>Sniping a plane trying to outspeed you in a straight line
If a 229 tries to roll he's a big shitty target since roll speed isn't that great.
On average it's an even match thanks to pilot skill level, it isn't if either of the pilots really know what they're doing, at least in my experience. It's different for everyone obviously.
Dude... no. It's not happening. The Bearcat is no longer an even match for the 229. Sure, I could probably come out on top vs a 229 90% of the time - but that's because I've got hundreds of games in the Bearcat, not because it's balanced. I've flown both the 229 and the Bearcat. It's not a fair fight.
Also, "pilot skill" is the shitty meme Gaijin has been using for shit like the F2H undertiering and other ridiculous shit. Don't embarrass yourself trying to use it as an actual argument.
So when paper 229 fights bearcat it's an even matchup because in some cases the 229 pilots might not be smart enough to win.
I'll remember that next time somebody complains about having to fight p-80s in their D13.
>go to custom just to dumb around
>enemy team is full of jets
>my team has a Lagg, an I-16, an 109 G6 and me
>theyre just flying around waiting for someone to spawn and kill
You must be really bored or just really bad at tier V to go to a custom and do that.
I generally have no trouble killing 229s on the off chance I'm not fighting an entire team of Doras, Slav UFOs, or Nips.
It's sad because I shit all over those niggers in my 229. So maybe it isn't completely unfounded. I've had maybe eight try to turnfight me, two try to outspeed me in a straight line, I've baited a couple into low speed fights and got them when they stalled out.
I get the F2H would be fine at 7.7-8.0, but the pilots sure as hell wouldn't.
>Having a problem with P-80s in your D-13
Unless they run like niggers they aren't hard to kill. They just LOVE to go headon with everything and everyone as well.
>Don't embarrass yourself trying to use it as an actual argument.
Clearly you didn't listen to that piece of advice, so I will now assume you are the head of Gaijins balancing department.
Average pilot skill shouldn't enter the equation when discussing plane balance. This is the same shit Nabutso says when he talks about how F-2s are still the best 9.0s because they can win head-ons and that P-47s at 3.7 are fine.
>throwing away tactics for a chance at winning a coin toss
inb4 it's not a coin toss I'm actually really good at headons I have a positive headon k:d rate
You're still justifying balance opinions with pilot skill. That is the problem here. It is, quite literally, a Gaijin tactic. It is mocked on wtg CONSTANTLY. It's even mocked on reddit.
>Calls me a shitter

Have I gotten that right? I'm running on no sleep at the moment.
Any got some online accounts of WW2 tankers/pilots?
That Centurion one was a right laugh.
>reading comprehension for >>128096976
Okay fucked that one up. I don't actively seek headons, the P-80s do. And if I really need to I trust my 151s over their M2s is what I meant.
Can't be bothered going to my library/book store now.
Just wondering if anyone had some online one or ten for a quick read.
Does the SR-71 story/stories count? The one where he went super low and super slow, or the one with the speed check competition.
I know they're memey as hell but damn they don't get boring to read.
Sure, have not heard of either story.

How much suffering is it to be in a tank during the desert war?
God knows how fucking hot it must be inside one.
>M41 has 213mm penetration at 500m
>PT-76 has 200mm penetration at any range
>M41 only ever fights T-54s and T-10M in SB
>meanwhile PT-76 gets to club Tiger 1s and Panthers
>both vehicles have irrelevant armour
>M41 is faster
So the Bulldog has an advantage in speed while the PT-76 has the more powerful and easily accessed shell. Yet the M41 is strictly limited to Cold War SB while the PT-76 gets to drive around and fight 1942/43 tanks.
Both should be allowed in Cold War events only.
If the M41 can effectively fight T-54s then the PT-76 can deal with Leopards and M60s.
Probably why they worse such light clothing
There's a severe lack of Spaghett in this thread.
Who hype here for 230mm penetration 90mm HEAT shells?
>Hull down on the hill hitting the enemy team in the side
>My team is absolute dogshit as usual and get ruined in the town
>Only get 3280rp towards the Centurion Mk3
Fuck this game.
Yes please give them sexy pasta planes.
It's kinda balanced by the fact that the Semovente 90/53 only carried 8 shells.
Unless they include an AI ammo carrier driving behind it all the time.

Initially yes, but they switched to 2x or 3x German 20mm cannons in 1942.
>gaijin would have got their shit together and fixed all the problems which would have retained the players if it wasn't for those pesky tanks!
Barely anyone talks about planes.
I highly doubt they'd even be here if it wasn't for tanks.
>doing tasks for Silver Lions
You basically print that shit en masse. Why would anybody be interested in them?
I mean those quests are not related to Golden Battles. So why bother doing them?
>Me262 can't take of from any airfield in Sim
I'm kinda getting sick of the fact that tanks remain combat effective until only one crewman is left.
I'm pretty sure most tanks wouldn't remain operational after an APHE shell penetrated the turret, exploded inside and killed every crewmember aside from the driver and bow-machinegunner.
>We have 3 team members left
>left enemy is in a naziwellington
>We're on cap
>He bombs us
Fucking epic. We can do absolutely nothing to him but he can just kill us with pure immunity. I love bombers in ground forces
maybe you shouldn't have been jerking each other off on the cap when you see a fucking bomber coming towards you.
sacrificing a bit of cap RP is better than losing the bonus for winning a match
Yes it's your fault for capping.
You were the only tank alive.
You fucking retard.
Obviously the above sentences are sarcastic but if you see a fucking bomber coming in, don't sit on the fucking cap zone if you want to win.
Let him waste his bombs on your team mates then cap after.
>just don't cap the point to win
>instead stay on the cap zone and get bombed by a wellington
Maybe try taking some AA in your lineup you fucking spastic so you can shoot planes down.
Holy shit I want to buy this.
Next german premium when?
This used to be the fully upgraded "Panzer IV" in WoT.
>In a bid to augment the Panzer IV's firepower, an attempt was made to mate a Schmalturm turret — carrying the longer 75 mm (2.95 in) L/70 tank gun from the developing Panther Ausf. F tank design, and partly developed by Rheinmetall from early 1944 onwards — to a Panzer IV hull. This failed and confirmed that the chassis had reached the limit of its adaptability in both weight and available volume.
It didn't work.
I could imagine it with a .3 or .5 br increase over a Panzer 4 and that would work well. But Gaijin will never add a failed prototype tank in the game (except if it is russian because is of balanse ))))))))))))))))
>anglo eternal nuclear fallout shelter church hill
How is it possible to be low on lions in this game? Just how bad are you?
>I could imagine it with a .3 or .5 br increase
nigga the PzIV got .6 BR increase for slapping tinfoil to its sides and adding 30 cm to the barrel
no way in hell it'll get anything under BR6.0
FUUUUUUUUUCK OOOOOOOOOOOOOOFF GRAAAAAAAAAND SLUTNARIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS
According to some anon, Russia had shitloads of tungsten so they should have done it. He also said the slavs issued large amounts of APCR because of this. If they just made a few less kinetic penetrators they could have made invincible tungsten tanks.
No, they didn't have a lot of tungsten. They had a lot of land with tungsten reserves underground, but slavs being the stupid tundraniggers they are didn't know what to do with tungsten penetrator. they even used Steel core sabot during the 60's because they are so fucking stupid
>a heavy fighter with bombs has a marker in RB
>an attacker doesn't
I think the Caernarvon is just a bit undertiered tbf.
A match like that isn't that rare in any tank due to how the SP system is set up where the team that has someone die without doing anything means they are already losing and the only reason you shouldn't be seeing it in your Achilles unless you have something else in your lineup.
now retards who fucking DC out because they feel sad
what the fucking fuck

Nips and somebody else. Probably Italians or Frogs.

Did the germans really think this would pass as a M10?
>still no StuG IV
>still no MG on StuG and StuH
>tfw unlocking StuG F back when tanks only launched
It was so much fun.
StuGs are still great.
Next patch will be armoured cars and halftracks.
Nip tonks this summer and Spaghett/Frogs/Literally Who at Christmas/New Year.
Shot a Ju out the sky with my Matilda's 2-pounder cannon.
At long distances it probably did work. probably would have worked better if they made the front of the fake turret shroud closer together but I could see that being mistaken for an M10 at longer ranges very easily.
>shoot WW2 movie in Spain
>use equipment provided by the Spanish army
>Spain still has StuGs and Panzer IVs stored away
>repaint Pattons and Walker Bulldogs instead
Such a shame really.
It's a small detail hardly anybody would notice but it'd be cool if they had used those German tanks in the movie.
I guess finding them at bases across Spain and getting them into working condition was too much effort for something most people don't care for.

Don't know how long that spit has been in a dive, and what was his dive angle, but it might have been a better decision to roll and avoid his dive and immediately fly away while he recovers, entering a shallow climb after building some distance.

>Face F-80s and F-84s in non-spitfire props
So get off your ass and equip your bombs, and kill the medium tanks. The only jap prop that can't do that is the J7W, but you wouldn't fly that, because you're not a faggot, right?
The funny thing is that those latewar superprops will outclimb some early jets like the F-84, meaning that the F-84 will be buzzing around at 8 km and he N1Ks at 10 km, both completely unassailable by the due to speed or altitude, respectively.
Am I shit or is the Hellcat pretty weak? I feel so stiff in this plane, and it feels really weak as well.
Didn't we have this argument last thread? Helmet only says that in the IL-28, applying it to the IL-28, because that's all he ever flies. I have literally never seen him try saying it about props, because he doesn't fly them.
The justification is that literally every jet facing the IL-28 can kill tanks with just guns, that doesn't apply to props.
