What planes are getting FM changes in 1.43?
>I think the first step toward naval forces is those extended Missions gaijin is promising. You know, where the mission can last hours with people coming and leaving.
If that's whats required in order for us few dedicated naval fags to have our dream near-autist levels of WWII naval gunnery and gameplay well then I'm all for it.
Now that I think about it, Arcade naval might be more so something like Battlestations Duel mode where you pit a certain class of ship against each other and duke it out for points and control of a map I suppose.
Unrealistic but it would make it fun and less time consuming for others as well.
Destroyer vs. Destroyer, Cruiser vs. Cruiser all those made for some good fun chaotic rounds in BSP
Post aesthetically pleasing ships. I've always had a soft spot for Dido Class Cruisers.
All WWII Royal Navy warships look aesthetically pleasing to me, its why I'm so hype that Gaijin is giving us naval forces.
These mighty vessels will sail once more.
Truly the last great era of British naval design.
Modern warships are effective but fugly.
>this beautiful ship will never be in War Thunder
Isn't it sad?
Sucks we might not have any pre-dreads or pre-modernization WWI ships but its better than nothing.
Although I never heard it mentioned anywhere how far back Gaijin will go with ships, so if we do get them, I will be excite
>tfw she is the only Tribal Class Destroyer left in existence
I can't think of any other ships apart from HMS Belfast, HMS Haida and USS Missouri that are still afloat.
>tfw going to be ready for the iL28 before the "coming soon )))" patch
not pictured are two player kills, one f6f and one p39
American pilots, amirite?
>I can't think of any other ships apart from HMS Belfast, HMS Haida and USS Missouri that are still afloat.
About 8 US Battleships including the Missouri.
Then a bunch more US ships and others-
The most recent addition is the Iowa, rusting away for years in Reserve Fleet Dock now turned into a museum.
What BR is the IL-28 going to be? Also will it have assraping defensive armament? I need to know if I will get free bomber kills in my Panther and Meteor since I can't kill Mig-15s and Canadairs
inb4 the IL-28 is faster than me
I always have have split second of surprise remembering the FW190D-12 exists.
I bought the D-13 and then when you unlock the D-9 you can research the Ta 152.
Is there even a point in flying it now that it has the same BR as the TA 152?
>8 US Battleships
Damn, I wish we kept more of our old warships afloat.

I wonder if we are going to be able to name our ships.
On the kill feed and player list will it show
player (Queen Elizabeth-class)
or player H.M.S. Warspite (Queen Elizabeth-class)
Obviously more of a curiosity with Battleships and Battlecruisers since there were so few of them, for Destroyers and the like you won't be seeing many named duplicates but you certainly will with Battleships.
But since there are so few Battleships I think they're just going to go by configuration and name so you'll be seeing-
player HMS Warspite (BB)
player 2 HMS Warspite (BB)
player 3 HMS Warspite (BB)
player 4 HMS Sovereign (BB)
player 5 HMS Belfast (BB)
player 6 HMS Dicks (DE)
Or what have you
IL-28 should be going 800-900km/h and it has the 2x 23mm rear guns, 2x forward firing and 3000kg bomb load. I'd say 8.3 BR.
Poor Brits have a terrible record of treating their ships with respect and honor post-war.
Would have been nice if a few of these mighty vessels like Warspite were kept afterwards, as by today they would serve as poignant reminders of the strength and reach of the British Naval Empire.
was that style of RATO really effective and widespread, or are they just using the same model for every RATO using plane
BS Pacific had the best sountrack for naval combat.
Plymouth city council put a bid in to buy her and bring her down to Plymouth but the people who had it under their legal care said we didn't have anywhere to berth her.

Russkies, what teh fuck
Poor nips, they really loved their Yamato.
I hate how instead of keeping them as war trophies, we nuked the fuck out of the majority German and Japanese battleships and cruisers.
Woo look at all dem guns and splosions
What does this have to do honor and respect? It's still an inanimate chunk of metal. You won't hurt its feelings or anything by getting rid of it when it's of no use anymore.
Don't insult my waifu like that
oh god I can't even say that without feeling disgusted fuck kancolle too
That inanimate chunk of metal is a piece of history you dunce.
Why do you think we still keep the USS Olympia and still have the USS Constitution as an active commissioned US Navy vessel.
To preserve history.
I would too I like the art because they're attractive that's about it
To respect and honor those who sailed on her, as well as her legacy as a vessel under war.
Sailors get really attached to their ships in ways that pilots and tank drivers might not even.
For months on end that ship is your only source of anything around the endless vast sea that stretches out in all directions.
The money of private companies has nothing to do with the financial state of the UK. The state hasn't been in possession of HMS Plymouth ever since she was decommissioned in 1988.
>Economy is projected to grow again
I'd say we're doing just fine.
T'is all a ruse. She is waiting until the time is right then she will seize power. Nigel will be powerless to stop the German war machine.

"8 June, a group of RAF Hawker Typhoons attacked the 175th Infantry Regiment, 29th U.S. Infantry Division on the Isigny Highway, France, causing 24 casualties."
"7 August, a RAF Hawker Typhoon strafed a squad from 'F' Company/US 120th Infantry Regiment, near Hill 314, France, killing two men. Around noon on the same day, RAF Hawker Typhoon of the 2TAF was called in to assist the US 823rd Tank Destroyer Battalion in stopping an attack by the 2nd SS Panzer Division between Sourdeval and Mortain but instead fired its rockets at two US 3-inch guns near L'Abbaye Blanche, killing one man and wounding several others even after the yellow smoke (which was to identify friendlies) was put out. Two hours later, an RAF Typhoon shot up the Service Company of the 120th Infantry Regiment, US 30th Division, causing several casualties, including Major James Bynum who was killed near Mortain. The officer who replaced him was strafed by another Typhoon a few minutes later and seriously wounded. Around the same time, a Hawker Typhoon attacked the Cannon Company of 120th Infantry Regiment, US 30th Division, near Mortain, killing 15 men. An hour later, RAF Typhoons strafed 'B' Company/US 120th Infantry Regiment on Hill 285, killing a driver of a weapons carrier."
more to come
"8 August, near Mortain, France, RAF Hawker Typhoons attacked two Sherman tanks of 'C' Company, US 743rd Tank Battalion with rockets, killing 5 tank crewmen and wounding 10 soldiers. Later that day, two Shermans from 'A' Company, US 743rd Tank Battalion were destroyed and set ablaze by RAF Typhoons near Mortain. One tank crewman was killed and 12 others wounded.
9 August, a RAF Hawker Typhoon strafed units of the British Columbia Regiment and the Algonquin Regiment, 4th Canadian Armoured Division, near Quesnay Wood during Operation Totalize, causing several casualties. Later that day, the same units were mistakenly fired upon by tanks and artillery of the 1st Polish Armoured Division, resulting in more casualties.
12 August, RAF Hawker Typhoons fired rockets at Shermans of 'A' Company, US 743rd Tank Battalion, near Mortain, France, causing damage to one tank and badly injuring 2 tank crewmen.
13 August, 12 British soldiers of 'B' Company, 4th Wiltshires, 43rd Wessex Division, were killed and 25 others wounded when they were hit by rockets and machine gun attacks by RAF Typhoons near La Villette, Calvados, France."
not even ships where safe
"On 27 August, a minesweeping flotilla of Royal Navy ships came under fire. At about noon of the 27th, HMS Britomart, Salamander, Hussar and Jason came under rocket and cannon attacks by Hawker Typhoons of No. 263 Squadron RAF and No. 266 Squadron RAF. HMS Britomart and HMS Hussar took direct hits and were sunk. HMS Salamander had her stern blown off and sustained heavy damage. HMS Jason was raked by machine gun fire, killing and wounding several of her crew. Two of the accompanying trawlers were also hit. The total loss of life was 117 sailors killed and 153 wounded. The attack had continued despite the attempts by the ships to signal that they were friendly and radio requests by the commander of the aircraft for clarification of his target. In the aftermath the surviving sailors were told to keep quiet about the attack. "

Did they nerf/unbreak the F9F-2? I remember this bad boy used to do like 860 kph in level flight at low altitude, but I just played a match with it and it had trouble breaking 780. And I'm sure it turns worse too.

Jesus fucking christ was the later part of WWII a giant fucking mess of friendly fire?
And I still remember the endless news coverage during the 2003 War when a US soldier shot another in a FF incident on the battlefield.
Yet I never heard about all these FF incidents till right fucking now, jesus I never even heard of the Tempest and Typhoons till War Thunder really.
Is the only reason that there are no Hurricane and Spitfire friendly fire incidents because those were only mainly used in the defense of Britain until phased out by the others for general use over Europe?
Is there some magical force of nature by which BRs stop being retarded when they play jets? Whenever I see BRs in my team flying props they tend to act slav levels of retarded, but with jets it's like they suddenly learn the concepts of teamwork, communication, situational awareness, etc
Yes, and spitfires and hurricanes were mostly just used for air supremacy, typhoons were nice for ground attack since their cannons would rip halftracks to shreds so they would constantly be on the watch for vehicles. It would be hard to identify a vague moving convoy or camouflaged blob in the woods at high altitude
there were a million A-10 incidents in the middle eastern wars for the same reason, even with modern FLIR and nice camera imaging CAS pilots fuck up all the time
I remember one incident where an attack helicopter pilot thought that a camera was a portable rocket projector and killed some reports and a whole bunch of civilians including a few children for good measure.
I never knew the friendly fire during the war was that fucking bad, and I though I had already read about all the secretive and little known events of the war like Exercise Tiger
In the 2003 war the US probably suffered more losses from friendly fire than actual combat with the enemy. It doesn't make great news though.
Then and now. My guess would be that the RAF wasn't alone in the number of friendly personnel and assets it destroyed.
It's one of those things about war that people always leave out of the stories because it makes everyone sound like a retard.
>It's one of those things about war that people always leave out of the stories because it makes everyone sound like a retard.
Makes the whole damn chaotic racket seem even more so chaotic and insane.
I wonder if there were more FF incident in WWI than WWII, certainly from gas attacks.

Beats being in a life raft in shark infested waters.
After just beating back a force that outnumbered and outgunned you 10:1, 5inch:18inch, with you the only thing stopping a hundred million marines from being obliterated by naval bombardment.
Forced to crash land your plane into the ocean because the escort carrier you took off from is at the bottom of the sea.
Also those poor sailors from USS Indianapolis
Meant hundred thousand*

How do I get good with the Me410?
It's out-turned by other heavy fighters and nearly everything it faces is faster and accelerates better so trying to turn gets you killed and trying to run gets you killed slowly.
Not to mention there's always enemies above you.

Once you fly it enough you will dogfight fighters with ease. Air starts on some maps help a lot and once you get the B-6 R/3 you will be unstoppable.
The Italian Littorio-class battleships were pretty sexy.
Here's a picture of the Roma. She never fired her guns in anger and was in service for a little over a year before she was sunk.
A tremendous failure, like the rest of the Italian war effort.

i know right? Moar jet plz
Even better that she was sunk by the Germans, using radio controlled bombs fired from Do 217s.
They knew the Italians had signed an armistice agreement, and the Italian fleet was steaming towards Malta to surrender. They denied the Allies a significant prize.
If you join a game and fly around in a circle over over airfield and win you will get a few RP and a fair amount of SL. If you lose you get less RP and a few SL.
If you actually accomplish something useful like shooting at another plane or ground target you obviously also get stuff, it flashes on screen.
I don't know what more you want, how much RP do you think you should get for doing nothing useful?
Weren't battleships rather useless by world war 2? It seems to me that outside of bombardment they were too slow to really keep up in fleet engagements and too large a target/costly to morale for risking them in most operations. It seems to me that cruisers usually did most of the workload that battleships were built for, and were much more resilient against carrier attack by being smaller and faster.
at least that's what I get from playing WiTP:AA as japan, i'm too scared of sending my battleships out because american carriers are everywhere, fuck, go home waitu piggu
You shouldn't use "it seems to me" so many times in quick succession, it makes it sound like you care about your own opinion just as much as the rest of us.
I'm sad to learn that WitP does not stand for War in the Pocket.

>people were short back then.
Every man in these photos is taller than the average Japanese soldier in WWII
The section of the ship the first turret is mounted on is not critical. It should be able to float with either front or back ends removed
Can't wait to see what sorta damage models the ships will have.
They were more useful in the Mediterranean and the pacific. only because of their ability to being heavy guns and provide shore bombardment. but even then of dubious benefit compared to an equivalent manpower and material being spent on airplanes and airmen or on land based artillery.
battleships were only safe to use when the battle was almost assuredly won
the atlantic was terrible for battleships. it was only submarines vs convoys. the Atlantic was all about escort carriers, air cover and small ships like destroyers, corvettes and light cruisers.
>I have shot down the same person 6 games in a row now
>He does the exact same thing every time
>He knows I'm coming to get him and knows I can outfly him
And yet he persists. Is this the reason for inflated BRs?
Haven't played my big gun Hayate outside that zengzhou event the other day, decided to queue up for RB. Got slavs, asked what we're fighting
Apparently we were fighting planes that dont exist
That being said I killed 2 slavs and Tetsuo, one gave me a good deflection shot on his wings and the other tried to head on 7.53kg/s of HE cannons coming at him
I mean, they served their purposes. Battleships were useful for shelling coastal positions, and at least in the case of American BBs, their anti-aircraft armament was pretty awesome.
But after the advent of the Aircraft Carrier, they became gigantic floating islands of steel carrying thousands of people that could be blown up by a few dozen planes (or even just one lucky one) being launched from hundreds of miles away.
It's a shame because they were badass, but for the cost in manpower, resources, and money they became less and less of a safe investment.
A sexy museum.
And the first battleship museum that will become a dry berth, since water damage and leaking is causing a list that forced her to be shut down, they decided the cost of repairing and constructing a new permanent dry berth is worth the cost of constant upkeep due to water intake.
It's going to be quite a unique museum. And will showcase the sheer size of the vessel better than any other.
I'm quite hype, although its sad she will never be in her natural element again.
That's incredibly cool. I agree with what you said about showcasing the sheer size - so much of a ship lies below the waterline.
Reminds me of this, been here too
There's no other like it in the world, and its also the only surviving dreadnought, double whammy.
Just like an iceberg yes, the public never really gets to see a view of a warship out of its element because that only happens in drydock so a museum like this will be really unique for a ship this size.
Theres something part satisfying and part sad about seeing a ship out of water like that. On the one hand it just got easier to handle as a museum and could allow more access to the public, and yet on the other it is forever out of its element.
Still cool pic.
How does the climb rate of the Venom FB.Mk.4 compare to the MiG-15bis? From what I can tell, they should be pretty similar.
That's sortof what I'm worried about. I thought the MiG-15's only real advantage over other end-game jets was the climb rate? (I'm only at the MiG-9 at the moment, so I haven't flown it yet)

>>destroyed in nuke testing
That'd be the Prinz Eugen, the Lucky Ship of the fleet. She had many close encounters with fate, but in the end it took a fucking Nuke to kill her, and even the it was because she was too irradiated to be worth shoring up and pumping the leaks.
She was reasonably close to the center too, IIRC.
She was a beautiful ship too, looking very much like a smaller version of the Bismarck and Tirpitz. And today, she rests in a shallow water grave, part of her still sticking up above the surface. Just type in "Prinz Eugen" into google and hit maps and it'll show you a neat satellite view of her.

>Jesus fucking christ was the later part of WWII a giant fucking mess of friendly fire?
Funny story time. Did you know James Doohan, aka Scotty from Star Trek, served in WW2 as a member of the Royal Canadian Artillery Regiment? (Yes, "Scotty" was a Canadian). Doohan first saw combat as a commissioned Lieutenant during the D-day landings. He lead his unit through the beaches and reportedly shot two snipers himself while leading his troops to higher ground and then through an anti-tank minefield.
That very night while moving from one camp to another to deliver a report, he was repeatedly shot by a fellow Canadian when the man, on guard duty, got spooked in the dark and fired on him with his BAR. Doohan suffered 6 hits, four hit his leg, one hit him in the chest (and was partially stopped by a cigarette case! How cliche!) and one bullet destroyed his right middle finger to the point it had to be amputated.
Thats right Scotty had only 9 fingers. He always went to great lengths to conceal it during his acting career, but if you know to look for it, you can spot it from time to time.
But yeah, Friendly Fire is a tragically all too common occurrence in any war. To quote Murphey's law "Friendly fire ISN'T".
I like learning about military services of celebrities. Not people who just fake it and go on USO tours and raise money for war bonds and shit like that. Real honest combat vets who happened to be famous actors.
Was reading about Jimmy Stewart's service just the other day.
do you expect me to belive a 1000lb falling 2 meters near a pillbox wouldn't obliterate its existence gaijin?
Depends on the bomb. If it penetrates into the ground, then explodes after a delay, the force of the explosion is directed entirely upwards. There were the reports of crews on Henderson Field where Vals would drop 1000 lb naval bombs on them and they'd land only a couple meters away, explode, and they'd be unharmed. And those weren't even crews in sheltered pillboxes.

>cannon and MGs bound to the same mouse button
Oh god just as bad as Entak

Say that to my face, fucker, not online and see what happens.
Why would you click two buttons at the same time when you could just click one? I have plenty of free buttons that are easily accessible. It's all personal preference, man.
My mouse has a little lever in it that only lets one of the two buttons come down at once. I think I could take it out so I could click both at the same time but I'm afraid it would void the warranty.
Did I ever say my mouse only had three buttons? I have two thumb buttons, one for cannons, one for MGs. Combined fire on left mouse, zoom on right mouse.
I download whatever comes out first, if it's a show currently airing. Otherwise I just go for the most seeds, I barely even read subtitles anymore. I just watch the events and spiral deeper into self-loathing.
>I barely even read subtitles anymore
>deluded sense of superiority
Fact: a controller functions exactly as well as a joystick in this role, yet stickfags turn their noses at the idea of touching an inferior controller.
