let's stop pretending we even had a squad during that tourney
In terms of performance the GT 101 would have been surprisingly effective. It would have produced a total of 3,750 hp, using 2,600 hp to operate the compressor and thus leaving 1,150 hp to power the transmission. The entire engine assembly weighted 450 kg (922 lb), not including the transmission. In comparison, the existing Maybach HL230 P30 it replaced provided 620 hp yet weighted a comparatively huge 1,200 kg (2,646 lb). With the Maybach the Panther had a specific power of about 13.5 hp/ton, with the GT 101 this would improve to 27 hp/ton, outperforming any tank of WWII by a wide margin (for instance, the T-34 was 16.2 hp/tonne). For other reasons, essentially wear and tear, speeds would be deliberately limited to those of the gasoline-powered Panthers.
M1A2 Panther when?
Helmet would be something larger. Only because she prefers big bombers.

Of course, 508 is crying again.
What a surprise.

don't blame the tank for your incompetence

please tell me it improves significantly
>Pz III survives a 75mm shell to the transmission
>nukes my crew with two (angled!) shots to the side
I'm not liking these memes
Thank you sir.
Gonna stay calm.
>you heal my wounds.
>Survives a shell to the transmission
The transmission is a solid hunk of metal, there is no reason it should explode or anything, mang.
>Kills me with two penetrating shots
Literally whining you died when someone shot you.
Can any spare my sanity and let me know if the fw 190 A-5 gets better aced.
>there is no reason it should explode or anything, mang.
>The transmission is a solid hunk of metal, there is no reason it should explode or anything, mang.
>he doesn't know that shooting the transmission literally fragments shells into everything in the tank
>Arm guns with high velocity ammo to fight light vehicles.
>They also work on generally thin side armor.
But I guess in your world something like a 37mm that can sling HVAP is only for fighting planes.
>how do I use the Me 410s?
Surprise people with your high instant turn rate when they think they're safe because they didn't commit.
>Shooting a big piece of metal will throw smaller bits errywhere.
Not true at all. There are a lot of factors to consider. I could list some but there wouldn't be much point, so in short: hitting a transmission wouldn't always project shrapnel or spalling material into the crew compartment. Managing to kill a metal box full of metal bits after you have defeated the outer armor means the shell has lost most of it's energy. That's why in places like Turkey where they maintain static defensive lines using tank they'll park them backwards, the armor is thinner but there's a lot more metal material between the crew and whatever is being shot at them.
The error in that post is the assumption I'm speaking about warthunder exclusively. Transmissions catching fire and the like is just dumb coding, shrapnel being flung off transmissions is also stupid, components inside the tanks should also have armor variables.
I do and I cry everytime an APCR zips through a meter of metal components and into my crew.
The Good: Fw190-A1, FW190-A4, FW190-D9, FW190-D12, FW190-D13
The Bad: FW190-A5, FW190-A5/U2, FW190-A8, FW190-F8
And before spergs who can squeeze in a few kills with any in the 'bad' category complain, they're there because of BR and what they fight.

It's hard being a normie on the Internet.
What is the tank that will get me the fuck out of 5.0 burgers and into tier 4?
the suffering doesn't end in tier 4
>Calling upon some dismal autist to deliver you from a group of dismal autists that are in all reality just shitposter stirring the pot for their astoundingly transparent amusement.
But by all means, keep up the shitposting, having actual discussion is far too hard.
The idea of a zoom is to get away from trouble and back up to altitude so you can maneuver without wasting energy. If there's a lot of people around, you might want to climb immediately, stay at the same level or maneuver a bit in order to keep their guns off you until you're well out of the way at which point you climb back up to a height that you feel comfortable at. In a less strict BnZ plane you may actually be able to maneuver through the zoom out in order to come back in after a burst climb, but this can waste a lot of energy and should only be used if you really need the kill.
Depends on amount of enemy planes in vicinity, their energy state and comparison of your planes and theirs.
I bet you can figure out the answer if you compute the variables.
MOZDOK 3 TIMES IN A ROW, FUCK OFF GAIJIM SERIOUSLY!!!!
I get that, but I don't understand how to find the specifics.
What is my plane good at? How do I figure that out other than having someone explicitly tell me? How did they figure it out?
And then even if I have to, for example, climb away, how steep should the climb be? 10 degrees? 20? Straight up?
US: P-38G, it'll be the L once 1.53 drops though.
GER: Maybe the Fw 190 A-4
UK: Hurricane IIB, or the Mosquito FB VI, even though it's shit.
>What is my plane good at? How do I figure that out other than having someone explicitly tell me?
Go into test flight and throw your plane around. Climb up to however high you'd generally do a dive from and then try things you'd do in a fight. How much energy do you lose rolling out early?
>how steep should the climb be?
Depends on situation, a lot of this is experience. In my P47-D25, a lot of my climbs are at 30 degrees or so because I don't mind losing a bit of energy to get a bit of height faster than I would otherwise, and this keeps me out of the enemy's guns. Other times, if I'm completely safe I'll stick with ~15 degrees because that's the optimal climb angle I use and it makes for extremely efficient zooming out.
Just mess around with the planes, that's how you get to really know them.

FUCK YOU GAIJEW GOD FUCKING DAMN IT DEFEND THIS YOU FUCKING POTATO SLAV NIGGER FUCKS
He missed first shot (well, not completely), so I pulled up and he thought I'll try to reach him and bounced.
He turned a bit so he could lead the shot but he failed. He lost too much energy trying to catch me while low.
That's why P-47 isn't THAT great, it accelerates fucking slowly, and it doesn't climb that well.
If you miss first shot, it's gone, if anyone with a bit experience is playing.
GODDAMN RIGHT I'M FUCKING MAD
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR SOME FAGGOT IN A T-34 TO SOAK UP SHELLS THAT GO RIGHT ON TOP OF HIS FUCKING HEAD
BUT IF HE IN HIS VODKA-FUELED SHITBOX DOES THE SAME THING TO ANY OF US, HE HAS NO PROBLEM BLOWING OUR TANKS AWAY
I HAVE NO PROBLEM KILLING T-34s, IN FACT THEY'RE DAMN FUCKING EASY TO KILL
BUT HOLY FUCK CAN THEY TAKE SHOTS IN THE MOST BULLSHIT WAYS SOMETIMES
SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS FUCKING SLAV LOGIC
I would've dived anyway.
So if he didn't dive with me, he would've lost me.
Even if he didn't turn a bit to lead, he still lost shitload of energy by trying to catch me while I hugged the ground.
Fucking campers should be gunned down in the streets like the degenerates they are, I swear their name should be displayed to the whole map when they're the last player alive for fuck sake.
Heard about Kerber from one of our Yugoslav shitposters
Between that and Кинo I've picked up a surprising amount of good music from /vg/
>Try to fly P38 in SB

The best part is when they put on Japanese skins and the rest of the team is fucking subhuman shiteating cocksucking aids-ridden piss-drinking cum-swilling nigger A-20 pilots.
They were all dead within 10min of the match starting. How does anyone play allies?
Sorry, was banned so I asked my gf to post it, she only posted the link. A mod was in this game and I got chatbanned for 4 days because of it kek.
Its why trying to use Thunderskill or whatever is bullshit, you can play allies and get the worst teams and get shit stats or play axis and statpad by clubbing retards.
one day bronies will be forgotten and will fade into the background noise of the internet like furries did
autism is falling out of favor my friend. the new meme insult is "kek", get with the times
Climb to 10k while all your teammates succumb to either Yaks or gravity, turn around when you see a dot, BnZ and hopefully light something aflame. When the Yak swarm finally starts to gain - lawndart and let the void overtake you.
Who /quackquack/ up in here?
I honestly feel like Warthunder stopped being "fun" when they removed daily 2x, sure only having 2x daily was a step down from the daily 4x, but it still felt like "Here you go guys! Go have fun!" while running outside with a piece of pie and a ham sandwhich to go fishing. Now it feels like CSGO, where it's some overbearing god company that has no interest in the individual user and gives you a scoop of sloppy grey mush and screams "BE GLAD YOU GET THIS AT ALL" when you protest
Yeah the Kingfisher is a real QT in general, too bad it's on the worst tank map in terms of what it means to the game

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST GAIJIN FIX YOUR SERVERS
/k/ has only two rules:
1. If it's American, it's the epitome of design and superior to virtually everything any other nation made. Claims of it being shit are slavaboo propaganda, caused by monkey models or inexperienced users.
Rule 2: If it isn't American, it's shit, always breaks apart, has low combat effectiveness, is overhyped and any combat reports showing any success in its use are blatant slavaboo/wehraboo/yuropoor propaganda or caused by the other side being kebabs or gooks.

Never. Not even joking, it's on the release tree, but the games gonna die before they get around to it.
