The main fault being any newer model thinkpads reliability issues and older ones have outdated tech

How was Battlfield 4? Last I heard the attack helo was useless and the certain types of AA required next to no skill to use and could camp enemy vehicle spawns from within it's own base.
Are there any planes that fit in War Thunder that could use miniguns?
>During World War I, several German companies were working on externally powered guns for use in aircraft. Of those, the best-known today is perhaps the Fokker-Leimberger, an externally powered 12-barrel rotary gun using the 7.92×57mm Mauser round; it was claimed to be capable of firing over 7,000 rpm, but suffered from frequent cartridge-case ruptures due to its "nutcracker", rotary split-breech design, which is fairly different from that of a Gatling. None of these German guns went into production during the war, although a competing Siemens prototype (possibly using a different action) which was tried on the Western Front scored a victory in aerial combat. The British also experimented with this type of split-breech during the 1950s, but they were also unsuccessful.
Perhaps, they have aircraft in the game that were only prototypes don't they?
He's pretty good. Plays 109 right and isnt afraid of anything
Okay guys so that you will stop claiming I am posting certain posts I will from now on use a trip and will only post using a trip or a screenshot with my name in it so this Ok insert name here meme can finally die.
>Attackers don't need to go 1000 kph
they do in team deathmatch
when was the last time you saw a b-17 memesquad in a jet game make it as far as the ground targets, now imagine if it had a runway start
The A-37 is basically a modernized, attacking focused Vampire. Fast enough to sneak around, small enough to evade some shots while allied fighters approach.
They clip right through in mid-air.
Back when 0.5 second fuses still existed it was possible to fly really low with an enemy right behind you and drop a bomb which would explode under them and kill them, I'm sure there are some gifs floating around. I did it once or twice in the B-25, it wasn't incredibly uncommon.
If you mean dropping them on a plane on the runway, yeah, that's very common. It's especially easy in fighters that carry bombs because their speed makes it easy to set up for.
>>AD-2s go nearly 200kph slower than the fighters hunting them and are still terror in RBGF
Because they spawn about 2 km away from the fighting, airborne (except on one or two maps), and there aren't necessarily any enemy fighters or aircraft in the air when it happens. RBGF is the most absurd combat scenario in the entire game.
There to counter dissent, up vote the shitty moderator comments, and post shitty positive opinions on the game.
Most of them are Ponyfags.
They get a small amount of GE as compensation, if I remember rightly.
Yeah he was kind of a shitter loitering around at 5000m, opting to be "fighter escort" for a Ju88 and a Condor.
I took out two Mig34s and a Yak before dying to an Ishak 27. I told him to clean up for me, but his reply was, "I don't think I can win against an that Ishak"
The other 109 pilots were shit. So probably a loss. . .
The only advantage they occasionally get is having the option to rearm/refuel/repair. But most of the pacific maps have an optional airfield which is really dicks. Land based fighters really ought to airspawn with a heavy fuel load on those maps.
Battlefield 4 air was balanced entirely around jets and people on the ground taking them out. Attack helicopters got caught in the middle and absolute ass raped. One of the worst offenders of this was the MAA with the active radar missiles, which is one of those game mechanics which makes you wonder if people actually want to play video games or just watch flashy thing happen on screen. It required so little input where what you would do is fire missiles look vaguely in the direction of a target and the missile would then go and hit it the target would then either be dying, dead or crashing due to the missiles pushing things around.
Now you may be say but realism (You can go get fucked metaphorical person who is probably to shit to use even bog standard lock on launchers found in other games which are already bordering on gone home levels of gameplay.) because battlefield 4 has absolutely no realism at all nor does it have any design indicating it does, battlefield is about authentic feel not realism, if realism was the targeted goal you would be instagibbed by even being near a rocket.
Essentially fuck BF4 and fuck listening to people who constantly whine about people using vehicles in a game based around combined arms.
HOW THE FUCK IS VEHICLEWHORE A TERM IN BATTLEFIELD GAMES? IT'S ON THE LEVEL OF HARDSCOPER IN COD IN TERMS OF UTTER RETARDED THINGS TO SAY.
>not taking 30-45min fuel loads to combat runners
Most likely. It would also be flown at maximum range cruise speed / altitude which would be far away from combat speeds and altitudes. The point was that hyperbole is often exaggerated.
I used to take max fuel load in the F-84 back when I had no upgrades and every match was hokkaido and the AAA wasn't ridiculous because it meant I could just run around the map for ~36 minutes while the meteors could only do so for ~15 (considering infiniWEP), and then I would kill them on the runway. Countless meteors died, either to J-ing when they ran out of gas or to bullets when they tried to land for more.

How is it physically possible for all of these XP-55 pilots to be so terrible?
>I spot three people on the enemy team that headoned an A20
It's a P2W plane rn, of course it attracts wallet warrior retards that are too bad to achieve anything in normal planes.
>carrier planes on carrier maps
This isn't even a carrier map for the US!
After all, it's the skill and intelligence of the pilot that makes the plane, not its performance. I for one only fly Japanese planes, which are known for being more arduous to endure than those of other nations.
shitty lighting but here's a little 109 i finished recently
>Grand getting fucked from three directions
WHAT A SLUT
What planes do you guys have talismaned?
What are your criteria in order to buy the talisman for a plane?
Im thinking of getting one for the f4. I love that thing
>Mfw i get so used to shitters not climbing it takes a minute for me to remember how to evade and lure them into scissors
cheeky fucking xp55
It's almost like if you play enough games in any plane, you'll have enough kills for a meme arrow montage.
considering how bad your aim is, you probably almost proved the above statement false
>Only Grouchy dislikes Triahx
Don't delude yourself, the majority of /wtg/ dislikes the TS faggots because 99% of the shitstorms start with them. Triahx is just an easy punching bag.
>What planes do you guys have talismaned?
F8F-1b, when it used to be great. I miss those days.
>What are your criteria in order to buy the talisman for a plane?
Be good enough in it that you can guarantee two kills a match, even if you end up losing.
>migger is unironically butthurt that he died trying to headon a f9f that was stalling vertically beneath him
5.0 Americans got nerfed into the ground in two ways, the first was the 76mm APHE nerf and the second was the increase of all the tanks which could actually fight tigers to 6.0+ BR.
6.7 American tanks are objectively the worst in the game but at least they can pen things and kill them.
>Hard to use HEAT
>Enough armor to bounce badly aimed 122/100mm APHE
Compared to the T-10 it's better elite but much worse stock. The T-10 is also way easier to use so shitters can actually do well in it without the HEAT.
That would be the more sensible thing to do, I have both spaded and if I'm not mistaken, there is a very slight increase in RP gain (370% vs. 380% for the D-5 and D-30 respectively, I can't check because I'm away from my desktop atm). The only real reason I want to talisman the D-5 over the D-30 is because it's my most used plane in the game.
However, as >>128509619 said, the D-5 doesn't overheat as quickly and it feels more stable compared to the D-30 when flying with full real controls, but that could've changed. I haven't played sim in a while.

The worst thing about GF rewards is that the modifications research tells you how much you should have gotten. In planes I would have gotten 14k RP, double the modification RP.
UT was really fucking fun during bomberspam, managed to grind out almost all of TIV and most TV planes with it
Tempest because it used to be good flat out
B7A2 because I needed something in Japan and the premium line up at TIIV was dog shit so I picked the best B-25 killer and ground up through a shitload of planes in sim
Oh I almost forgo
I don't need a reason besides this ss
Ho boy before the Griffons were added it was a Griffon.
It's still one of the most stable gun platforms in warthunder but most super props it faces just flat out beat it even with MEC.
Before the FAA was added, before the T-II was added, the only other thing that threatened the Tempest-V was the Dora and the La-7
Which to be fair everybody should be scared of Lavochkins. Unless they're piloted by a downie those things are fucking terrifying.
So yeah by no means is it a bad plane, just not as good as it used to be.
I find one of the best moments to kill an idiot Russian is while they are stalling trying to spike you, assuming you're above them. When they go vertical, they have stupid amounts of energy so they can definitely hit you if you give them an easy shot. If they're in the stall, they're as easy a kill as any other. If they're recovering from a stall, watch out, they'll have their energy back in no fucking time at all.
But that's how it goes when I fly American. When I'm in a Zero it's
>La dives on me
>Evade and roll onto his tail
>He turns like an idiot
>Get some shots in
>He starts flying away while spazzing in every direction to try to avoid my shots
>Still pulling away from me quickly despite flying in anything but a straight line
When people try that stupid shit in any other plane to try and throw my aim off, I can bide my time and aim carefully because flying like that is a great way to kill energy. Yet they get away. I wish I could better describe the dumb twitchy movements those people do, it looks like something out of arcade.
There's two that I tend to see among mouseniggers: the "toss my mouse across my desk in all directions and hope for the best" and the "dolphin" in which they bob up and down like a dolphin traveling through water.
I fly with a mouse myself, but I know exactly what you mean. What I mentioned was definitely the former. The latter is how Yaks/Las/Ki-43s/P-63s try to chase my P-47.
I think it really works wonders to at least occasionally take control of rolling and pitch with wasd.
The only thing that I have trouble with in the tempest is N1Ks. It has better speed than the Dora and can outturn it with flaps. I've never noticed lalas so they must not have given me any trouble.
Yeah that looks like the way that should work.
>in 3 inch GC
>nothing can pen me from any direction
Well being basically the only historically used-as "Attacker" bomber in tier 5 is also neat.
>and the "dolphin" in which they bob up and down like a dolphin traveling through water.
Im a mousenigger as well. I just fly level and fire a few rounds when they bob into my reticle
Fuck guys I'm in a bad game streak.
I'm doing stupid shit like following enemies down and letting them outturn me like a fucking scrub and it's making me mad and play even worse but I can't go to bed knowing how poorly I've been playing.
ANOTHER BAD GAME GUYS
HIT A DORA A FEW TIMES AND MADE HIM SMOKE BUT NO KILL AND NO ASSIST WHEN HE BAILED AFTER A TIGERCAT HIT HIM
HIT A HORTON BUT NOTHING
THEN SOME DORA CAME OUT OF NOWWHERE WITH MORE ALT AND PILOT SNIPED ME

I'm 100% convinced my ISP gives them priority over everything else.

anyways, NZ fibre for ya right here
Killed a spit, then 3 premium spits were above us (2 US and one Sovok) and I thought I was fucked but my team killed them. Cam in 8th place but at least I survived and didn't do anything retarded.
Now...one more game or bed?
Thanks. I do want to finish Hibike! Euphonium but I'd better go to bed.
It's literally exactly what I pay for so I'm ok with it

well first off, mbps is not the same as mb/s (it's really retarded actually) and second, pic related
here's your (You) grouchy
What does it mean when a plane in the suggestion forum is in the "Further Discussion" section? Does it mean that the mods like it, or does it just mean that it's been discussed for a while?
>tfw you're second monitor is a shitty resolution
>It's actually an open-air cockpit
This is joke, yes?
Italians are not so stupid that they forget to close cockpit?
Surely you're memeing me.
original internet poster here, if that's true right why do I get only 0.5mb/s download on steam but 8mbps on speedtest? Shouldn't I get 1mb/s on steam?
Play something low tier with big guns like a LaGG for a bit. That way you'll only need one or two good hits for a kill. Just make sure you're keeping your energy up or you'll go into a spin.
One last shitpost before bed.
So now that the L7 and some of the new Brit guns have actually good sounds, are they going to go back and fix some of the guns already in the game? The 88 and 90mm in particular sound like a wet fart.
>not liking planes
You need to give your support to this being added right now.

>Get an Assist
I hate the kill system sometimes. Did 90% of the work in taking out that T-34 yet the kill is awarded to somebody else. Is there any more efficient way in taking out tanks form the rear other than setting them on fire three times or waiting for somebody to climb into the turret?
At least that match also featured a T-34 team-killing a Black Prince.
>Is there any more efficient way in taking out tanks form the rear.
Apart from the old
>hit engine to kill mobility
>hit turret to kill gun/turret ring
>slowly cook until done
No. It depends on the layout of the tank like you already described in your post.If they don't store ammo in the turret, it's a long roast seasoned with delicious assists.
i would probably just keep sending shells into his turret and hope enough fragments hit something
Tank assists need to give reward proportional to the amount of damage inflicted, the guy who actually killed them should get full reward too. Kinda like battlefield 4.
