>The best tank ammo is always the one with the highest penetration
The air-targets Minengeschoß belt is the one to have for the cannon, I usually just use omni rounds for the MG's. Just keep in mind that they don't fare well past 500 meters or so, and if you're using the 30mm you really need to get up their ass; I don't use the cannon until I'm close to 200 but even when I only get a snapshot it's usually a fatal hit if it doesn't kill them outright.
All this shit is always the same - either complete horseshit stories to emphasis their "Russian bias" or actual instances given extreme hyperbole. It's funny how a German pilot can know the ins and outs of his aircarft off by heart from hours of wikipedia and manual trawling, yet knows so little about the enemy aircraft that they accuse shit like the Yak-3 helicoptering as "impossible" without even considering the other aircrafts parameters.
I'm not saying there isn't bias present in WT (Or IL-2 for that matter) but most peoples arguments for it are just plain fuckin dumb.
>implying i don't want to liberate germany in my cadillac of the sky with a red, white, and blue smoke trail behind me
but anyway 50k won't happen. the prize pool was stuck at 35k, at which point gaijin opened up sales for dog tags on ps4 and the gold dog tags. now, even with those, it took like a week to crawl up to 40k. the prize pool will stagnate again before even 45k.
What the fuck did they change in the Jap flight models?
hey, it's the whole underdog crew!
>yak 3 is uber plane xDDDD
Fuck off with your memes if you're asking for legitimate help. The Yak 3s engine power deteriorates past 5km, 7km he should be like putty in the hands of a decent pilot.
>YOUR TEAM HAS LOST ALL IT'S AIRCRAFT
THE FUCK THEY HAVE
WHAT THE FUCK
I WAS REPAIRING
Fuck man, and that was after a harrowing journey back with no right aileron and a bright red engine...
A main tree Tier IV P-47 would honestly be good enough for me. It seems clear Gaijin won't add the M seeing as it's premium.
I just hope the F8F-2 and P-51H don't get the same treatment as the P-47M, solely premium aircraft.
What's your ingame name? Sounds like you have no fucking clue how to fly.
MEC=Manual engine control. Those radiator flaps create drag. Drag=worse acceleration, top speed, climb rate and many more.
>hur durr american pilots are bad
The 47 is undertiered yes, it's not that undertiered. If you want I could specify "late tier IV fighter", because that's what America is sorely missing. F8F nerfed with lava engine, P-51Ds aren't good enough for superprops and the F-82 is, as it always was, shit.
Gaijin needs to give America their ACTUAL endgame props - the F4U-4, F8F-2, P-51H and P-47N - not shit they were using in the middle of the war.
Yeah 15 ms CR plane in the hands of average shitter should improve a lot experience of flying on USA planes.
>P-51H, F8F-2, P-47N
Still shitters will fly low in this things because hurrr durrr "climbing is boring((((((((("
>The P-47 seeing aircraft from 1938 isn't "that undertiered"
It *is* that undertiered. The worst thing is instead of fixing the problem Gaijew are worsening it by throwing 1943 prototype aircraft and 1945 aircraft into that BR range instead of putting things like the P-47, A7M etc at BRs that they actually belong to. desu I'm not sure if I hate nazibolt niggers or A7M niggers more right now.
>tfw P-35 NEVER
another good joke anon, keep em coming
They only club in the hands of experienced pilots, who are few and far between. As opposed to say, the XP-55, which clubs with even average pilots.
bolts and mustangs are easy kills desu
don't know about shooting stars since i don't play tier v
i don't even fly american, my opinion has been formed by flying against them and winning most of the time
Impying any burger pilot won't get out turned, out dived, out climbed, out gunned, OR survive less rounds to the face than a Bf-109, Yak 9, J7M, or Spitfire(A F7F OUTDIVED BY A MOTHERFUCKING SPITFIRE, for Christs sake.).
I've gone into a game, started as a F7F, climbed, found a bF-109 ABOVE me, where he then dived faster than me and LITERALLY one-shotted me. That's a poor excuse for programming, and it's bullshit in my opinion.
>xDD I don't even fly these planes but I know all about them lmaoooo
>Service entry dates don't matter, MiG-21 vs Fokker Eindecker would be perfectly balanse)))))
>Ecks dee I'm paying Gaijew thousands for basically fucking nothing xDDDD
These are the kinds of people you share a playerbase with. Just let that sink in for a few minutes.
Then get in P-47D or P-51D, Buffalo or Cobras.
It's so easy to win in those planes that if you got at least tiny bit of brain, you can even win when being heavily outnumbered. I won yesterday in 6 vs 1. My team didn't shoot down anything. Got 6 krauts and two others got memed by AAA's while they tried to fly over caputured airfield on Norway.
Last time I flown F7F, was able to gain in dive behind Me-262. The only problem on F7F is it overheats like fuck.
It's okay. It looks fucking cool.
I realize that I'm part of the problem, but this is fucking ridiculous
There's literally only one fighter
If I climb? Facing away from them? They catch you. dead. Hug the ground? Follow you, dead. You above them? UFO-aroonie-doonie, dead. Everything I do, whether it's in the F8F-1, F7F, P51, I cannot get into an advantageous position as an american plane. I CELEBRATE a 1-1 K/D.
Not him but it's criminally under BRed plane. 8 MG's with shittons of ammo, plane capable of hitting 703 kph in level flight at 3.7 BR or 3.3 in SB(?), it can even outmanoeuvre 109's if you know what flaps are, above 5000-6000m no plane can compete with it.
>Posted from my hard to use fair and balans flamethrower
Fuck off lad, I can easily fend off multiple actual German planes, but when you have multiple dickless shitheads in P-47s spraying tracers at you, one of their rounds is enough to disintegrate the fuel tank of just about any plane. It's fucking stupid and people who think it isn't should, as I've said before, fucking kill themselves.
These kinds of advantages are mostly meaningless to the average player. So what if it can outperform at 5-6km, 90% of the fighting happens on the deck. 8 MGs is good, 20mm Shvak, Hispano or MG 151 is better. It can outmanoeuvre a 109 with flaps, killing all of your energy to try and eke out a single kill against a plane that will 99% of the time outturn you.
You're a shitter
>It out turns me, therefore I must be at an equal BR to it
Let's put you at 1.0 with the biplanes, then))))))
The strengths of your aircraft are just different to theirs. Their strengths fit the climb, spot, dive, shoot and die pattern that exists in RB far better than your plane does.
>It out turns me, therefore I must be at an equal BR to it
That's not what I'm saying you fuckwit, I'm saying advantages that more closely benefit the meta are more important to the average player. In the arena deathmatch that is WT, the meta favours fast climbing interceptors with high firepower and good turning ability. Shit like the Spitifre is perfectly suited for this meta. Long range escorts like the P-51 and P-47 aren't.
A plane can have many advantages over another, but the one with the meta advantages will beat the one without it with average players flying.
Oh, okay. Being Martin is suffering.
Anyone have any luck in using Mk IVs in GB?
What the fuck even am I to do with this thing?
I'm trying all the heavy fighter strats I can think of and nothing is working
Glorious, isn't it? There's a reason it's called the deathpod, after all. Anything on the other end of that thing will immediately combust - equip stealth rounds for maximum giggles.
I'm unfamiliar with that feel. What's it like?
Back when AAA was reasonable I would go really low around behind the enemy base and bomb/strafe landing planes, I got four kills in three different attacks one time. I guess they just really wanted to land rather than find the free kill that kept strafing them.
Another time I bombed all but one of the carriers on New Guinea when the third guy to go head-on finally landed a shell.
You are able to outrun all jap planes and most if not all German planes in level flight. Maintain some altitude so you are always in a position to floor it if your attempt to force headons fails, circle around and try again and eventually the enemy will get impatient and try to win the head on against your 14 heat projectors. Also jumping down from cloud cover to peg fighters then speeding away into the sunset is also fun.
PaganiZonda's skins are getting good, they don't look super grainy anymore
>You are able to outrun all jap planes and most if not all German planes in level flight
This is true for a lot of heavy fighters, but the problem isn't speed, it's acceleration. All German and Jap fighters will out accelerate you and snatch you before you even approach to outrunning them.
One of his earlier skins for reference
That's why you need to feign a head on if you can, if they have enough sense they'll dump energy into evading while you can drop altitude and fire up the warp drive. Trying to kill an evasive f82 can be a nightmare and the only time I've managed was when I had 2 k over him and he was previously doing ground passes
A well flown P-47 would always dominate at that BR. It's just that most people who fly them have no idea what the fuck they are doing especially since you unlock them fairly early in the US tree.
Whichever looks the most fishy.
Yes we finally broke the 40k, time to shit every match with those trails. Now stop being such poorfags and buy a dog tags so we can all have 2 premiums.
We'll reach 45k max desu. I said we'll only reach 30k before, but they added new dogtag and PS4 players got a chance. Now that those are out of the way too, I doubt we can get much more, unless Gaijin adds another 5k, which will ensure everyone jewing up until now will shekel up. I bought both dogtags with rubles, which is around 10€ and it was legit a good investment. Already have the 109, but I do want that rocket tank and the T-V, however chances of getting it are rather slim
>max speed: 304 kph
>two .30s or a .30 and a fiddy
>not whenposting for best biplane
Mother of all dive bombers when?
Also daily reminder to naziboos that Germany shamelessly copiedthat from the burgers
It's like that kid in primary school telling you how his dad once drove 500km/h when no one was looking.
War Thunder went into E-sports. http://warthunder.pro/en
You can buy two dog tags (only the silver one is worth it desu) in a bundle for 17€. For that you get 20 CS:GO themed skins for tanks and planes, M24 Chaffee with APCR and P-51A (neither of this is premium), tri coloured smoke, 100% booster every day during the tourny. If we reach 50k, we get another two premiums, USSR Panther A and BF 109 E7/U2. Basically, you get a ton of stuff. If youpick a team and your team wins, you get a rocket tank too, which is pretty goofy. Golden tag will allow you to change your team in semi finals too, so your chances of getting it will be even bigger. You also get a 3D skull to put on your tank, but fuck that desu. If you watch the tourny streams, you can get the 3 premiums for free, if you're lucky enough
Basically, you get a ton of shit for 11€. Golden tag is just a bonus. Also, only 25% of the profit goes to the fund, so gaijin shekels up your 75% instead of giving it to the winners of the tourny. There was also E-100 event for dog tags owners, but you missed it. You can do it with the rest of the free loaders now, but good luck
>People actually fly with their speed in units other than knots
>People actually fly with their altitude in units other than feet
It's possible. :^)
I'm over 99.99% sure he's a lying fucking faggot, though.
But the F11C was the first true dedicated dive bomber
Krauts then bought two to see how you construct a proper plane and used it when everyone else already got that it was obsolete
Stay mad naziboo
My dad was Mikoyan actually. He said Gurevich (or Kurwovich as he liked to call him) kept fucking up the design, so MiGs really were shit compared to what they could've been. He took me for a ride a few times, but compared to the sabres we got to reverse engineer back then, it was shit
It's actually unacceptable that this plane isn't in the game yet.
You forgot to add it was improved by germans too, because british planes look ugly as fuck.
Probably because people aren't autistic and actually use units that make sense.
>Everyone uses degenerate amerilard units
I don't know about those guys, I just use knots because I'm used to using them in other games and have a rough idea of what happens at what speed without having to start thinking in SI units which, while superior, just don't make as much immediate sense to me when I'm flying a plane.
People who use imperial units in cookery trigger me, though.
Shameless exploitation of overpowered vehicles.
Except for the T-34-85.
Armour protection is overrated.
The fruits of my labor
Probably does it because his winrates are all negative. Stats are not that important anyway, as long as you're having a good time and arnt actively working against the team I dont really give a damn how good someone is.

Am i doing it right?
But you have to start asking questions when their aircraft have almost no weaknesses
Americans cant climb
Germans cant turn
Brits have weak wings
Japs light on fire easy
Russians..... cant dive as fast?
>burgershitters complaining about their extremely difficult to use fighters in the thread
Why do burger pilots literally never look into actual energy fighting, specifically fighting in the vertical? Seriously a lot of the army props are fucking death machines when flown by a pilot who's actually switched on his brain like I just can't fathom how a non-subhuman cant do extremely well in a P-51D
Who cares? People don't listen, I don't want to teach.
There are plenty of guides out there. The fact that they don't read them or watch them is evidence they don't care either.
So why bother?
because for once I would like to fly american planes knowing my teammates won't be paste-eating retards
I might consistently carry in a Slav jet fighternigger match but no amount of carrying will win me a burgershitter clubfest
I've been away for a while. Can someone update me on the status of American tanks? I need to know what to research.

Nigga i know you like factional shitposting but really, gaijin incompetence has nothing to do with it
Just look at the T-34-85 bouncing shells where it fucking should not never ever
Gaijin is not competent enough to set up a proper bias

Is this how it's supposed to work?
You can change the team in semi finals (so if your team gets btfo or one team is an obvious winner, you can change to it). You also get a 3D skull for it and 50% of the profit goes for the winner's fund, instead of 25%.
It's already 650 buck over 40k, so maybe, if they leave it up for long enough. It's probably only on until 23rd, so we'll see
I'll have the skull and tri colour smoke on all of my tanks, lets see you try teamkilling me you little bitch, first time you do it I'll make sure you and your brother are banned from this game until the fucking end of 2074 and when you fucking try to sign up on the new year, bitch, I'll be there to fuck you up so hard you'll die of a fucking stroke. I got so much pull with the mods right now they are rotating around me like the fucking moons around Jupiter so if you wanna fucking get fucked up by me just fucking try it you little fucking bitch and stay right there being fucking poor you fucking loser
Feel free to release that irony along with your guts as you soduku for not liking anime in the current year, bitch

Yeah, it's a lot of fun. It can outrun anything it faces but a Bf 109 E.
It's pretty good with the 4x500 lb bombs in ground forces too.
It's just a game nigga and it's a pretty wonky mechanic.
I can spray a cockpit with fiddies and a pair of 20mm and do fuck all and sometimes I can fire a single 7.62 and instantly kill the pilot.
If it ain't gonna work correctly and Gaijin isn't going to fix it, why include it?
And when I mean spray I mean I can see the rounds hitting where the pilot's head and torso are.
In your defence sometimes it doesn't show up as spaded in your hanger selection immediately.
A PILOT WITH THE VITALITY MAXED OUT CAN, WITH A MEASURE OF LUCK, SURVIVE EVEN ONE HIT FROM A .50 (12.7MM) M2 BROWNING MACHINE GUN ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
IT IS JUST A GAME TOVARISH ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
How have you still not realized that rounds don't hit where your client shows that they hit yet? It's quite possible to see a visual miss too, and then the enemy wing falls off.

What the fuck is going on, this is not me.
My team died within the first few minutes and I decided to just go back to rearm and suicide into the enemy.
What the fuck? Stop pretending to be me. It's just really fucking weird. You're right in what you're saying though.
Not really, I'd rather have the option of getting more points.
Is this a new meme for the thread? I've been away for the weekend so I might not be up to date with this bizarro shitposting. The match didn't even have British planes in, you fraud.
Not if it was repairable, no.
What the fuck? Why are you doing this.
You're the one memeing. Literally just fuck off.
Why am I even having to post this to prove its me? This is ridiculous
1)I'm in 190, behind me there is faster plane, better climbing and turning what do?
2)I'm in fast plane that can go fest in straight line, behind me there is slower plane but more agile and better climbing. What do?
3)What's the best site to check planes performance, so I can know where my plane is fast and enemy plane is slower.
4)Is there any video channel where I can see how to do XX ACM like the flat scissors.
5)What's the best plane to club Griffon niggers?
Okay, now it's your turn.
Who the fuck are you, you dank memester?
