It's /comfy/ bros
So I guess the Leopard will be in the Heavy/Tiger line?
Well see that makes sense but for maximum grind potential idk why it wouldn't be hidden behind the Maus.
>Tier 4 Ki.-84
>Plane performs like an early Tier 3
>Gets wrecked by tier 2 -despite- only being BR 4.3
I just want a Ki-200 goddamnit.
Seriously? The Hayate is incredibly strong, arguably better than both the Typhoon 1B/L and Yak-3. The thing is the nip equivalent to the P-51 and should be sitting at 5.0. (with the following versions at 5.3 and 5.(But fat chance Gaijin would ever fucking fix their matchmaker)
>CL-13 Mk. 5
>all on BR 8.7
>P-51s and other planes that can't climb well all fly straight in
>try to remind them that the japs get an airstart
>they didn't know that/don't care
>I quickly land and leave
>operation timed out
>even log in
>white rock fortress
of all the maps m8
It was a cheap tank, it was in real life, what soviet tank destroyers are in this game.
They can climb to space faster/better than anything else and outturn everything but zeroes and ki-43 (not that it matters since they can just outspeed and outclimb those).
Literally handholding tier.
>Ki-10 UFO since years
A piece of shit biplanes only redeeming quality was it's FM while it died to anything and had guns that couldnt kill shit. One model was even bumped to 1.7
Hardly UFO fuck off
>Ki-84 ko undertiered since years
Only truly legitimate complained
Needs a slight up tier and down tier of the other Ki-84s and last Ki-61
>N1K2 UFO for months
>one plane one time nerfed into oblivion with the absurdly high Japanese repaircost of SIXTY FUCKING THOUSAND
>Ki-200 clubbing since weeks
>Actually thinking the Ki-200 is a seal clubber
Very very few of the things it faces are actually at a disadvantage
Even more important is that there are people who are retarded enough to let you come in from directly behind instead of maneuvering away
>Canned shitter is running from the whole team, abusing map borders over and over
>he dives, hits the map border
>I just turn slowly at 900kph
>dive on him at 1020kph
>crit his elevator at about 900 meters
>he continues to run halfway across the map
>rips his wings off from the critted elevator
Weebs will defend this
>Very very few of the things it faces are actually at a disadvantage
Literally every 6.3 prop and all early jets up to 7.3
>>one plane one time nerfed into oblivion with the absurdly high Japanese repaircost of SIXTY FUCKING THOUSAND
I'm talking about the past, the guy I replied to somehow believed that there never was Japanese bias in this game. The N1K2 was clubbing for a very long time at 5.7 with an absurd FM.
Arcade shitter detected
No one fucking pays 60k to repair in arcade, it's RB and SB.
And 60k is a lot, you fuck. Unless you have premium you stand no chance of breaking even, unless your K/D with that aircraft is close to 4 or something. Even with premium you won't be making a profit.
>F7F at 6.7
It's fun, but very fragile, go for flanks, dont play it like an HT, i see too many tank players who think the only way to fight is head on. patience will keep you alive
It's fun because it can pop germans in a single shot and if they somehow survive it, you can reverse like a madman into hard cover to try it again later.
It may have a high top speed but its acceleration isn't that good, its still a good tank to dick around.
Like >>97730157 said, flank like a motherfucker and ammorack them, or if you want to be a cheeky cunt you can shoot their gunners or breeches.
the 100mm gun was chosen for the tank destroyer role by the soviets, because it had better penetration than the 122mm.
So why does it have less penetration in warthunder?
Actually can anyone tell me why soviet tank destroyers are terrible after the SU-122 compared to their BR?
>first match inna stock P-51
>plane shits out the entire amount of energy you had through a single vertical maneuver
>B7A2's able to keep up with me in a straight line
>can't turn for shit
>handling feels really weird
I knew that stock it would be shit but I didn't expect it to be this shit
Its okay, germans will rape your face if you end up being the plane with the lowest BR in your team, and B17s will expect you to defend them.
Burger T-4 is suffering because of the bomberbabbies, you might as well bought the beercan and get kills to cancer your way into jets or whatever the fuck you want to fly.
Its average. If you're good, you can make it work. You really depend on your energy retention more than anything else and speeding away with your extra energy. You wont outspeed some planes in a straight line unless you came from a dive, or at least that was my experience.
Forgot to add. Radiator and Engine Injection dont seem to change anything on the plane performance.
I had a friend flying a stock P51 and I flown mine, which had up to T2 upgrades. He overheated and cooled down at the same speed and the same temps as me. Cant say for sure about Engine Injection, but it doesnt look like it modifies anything.
You can almost all planes on Military power with the radiator closed.
WEP on low altitude is a major boost which brings you almost on Tempest levels of speed and a solid climbrate.
Just put your nose down into a shallow dive and nobody will catch you, just remember to never pull full elevator or you throw away all your precious energy.
Performed the Radiator test with only T2 upgrades. Later I reached T4 upgrades and the first thing I researched was the Engine Injection. No apparent difference in performance. Sorry if the way I wrote that looks confusing.
This was back on the 1.47, dunno if something changed since then.
Beaufighter runs on pure air.
There are no engines.
>Squad'd up with a buddy in our A6M5s over Saipan
>Ofw as we watched a prem190 hesitated and had a minor freak out as he dove into some lawn mowing Shitfires and a B25; not sure who to actually go for.
Immediately after he gets shot down by one of the spitfires as he ended up trying to turn fight.
We sometimes have those moments I guess, But hey, I shot down two spitfires and a B25!
Still learning on editing and making proper webms but how is this?
at the time I shot he was almost 2.5km above me
>out turned by short nose 190s
>outclimbed by 109s and long nose 190s
>only defense is to dive, which means you have to spend the next few minutes climbing to renegage
why even play this fucking plane?
>caring about FMs
>caring about BRs
Just git gud, shitters.
What ammo should I use for German 20mm? When I get too pissed off to play them anymore I switch to American and just rape everything in tier IV. Is there any American-made ammo for German aircraft? So far been using the ones with Mineshoß
>You can make her do stomach waves using your left flap
So has anyone noticed that sometimes if you set a plane on fire they just explode?
Like, not burn down but detonate as if they had a bomb rack that was hit. Somehow I don't think that;s how it works.
Get a feel for flying and aiming in edacra.
Then just learn planes.
Tactics are mostly dependant on knowing what you can do in plane A vs plane B.
Read Falcon 4.0 manual and watch some videos.
Why do they still call this an "open beta?" It's been around for anyone to play for almost two years now. That's not how it works.
I enjoy the game but it seems like they just want an excuse for the delay in fixing any and all flaws or bugs in the game.
can anybody tell me what model tank this is? I pieced it together and painted it about two decades ago when I was in primary school
Calm down, Sigmund. You're not on leddit.
Yeah, Sturmpanzer. Not featured in warthunder afaik
>stay high, avoid the combat if you're not sure about it, look at a lone enemy who's shooting at your m8s and dive on him
That's what I already do, which results in nokills because the target dives and if I followed I'd become a target myself.
>tfw you do a sweet bombing run in your heavy bomber but you realize the only airstripe of the map is too short and will crash you into the sea if you try to land on it
Looking at you, Krymsk.
If I have machine guns I try to go for the wings or the tail
If I have cannons I just spray because I know something gonna get all fucked up no matter where I hit. If you don't cut a wing ar destroy an elevator you'll hit the fuselage fuel tanks or the engine
In deflection shots I always try to aim for the wings tho
>109 wants to play headon
>watch a 75 mm shell hitting straight into his engine cowling
>literally nothing happens
I suppose the shell just pierced through and damaged nothing, right
Pls add British tanks and Australian variants of them
I want to use a Matilda frog
>the first tank probably thought about the same and offed himself
>second tank was retarded enough to think that he was on his way to a secret camping spot
It's just an epic meme.
British tanks will suddenly be "relevant" when they're intentionally overpowered and locked behind a paywall.
Shitposting about American tanks was common before they were implemented.
You realise sim is just arcade mode with a more zoomed in camera and no pen indicators?
It's terrible, just as the tanks mode is, as a whole.
At least Arcade is somewhat fun, unless you're playing muh hard to use Tiger in Sim mode and sniping every tank from your own spawn point whilst never getting shot at.
>You realise sim is just arcade mode with a more zoomed in camera and no pen indicators?
No its not you silly little retard.
>removes every enemy indicator save for the minimap
>ballistic physics more realistic
>armor actually simulated instead of "lol shoot ten times on his heavily armored front and he is kill"
>crew vitality is set to default for all
These are unquestionable facts and unless you can disprove me with ingame footage and such, any counter-argument you make is invalid by default and I wont bother responding to it.
Now fuck off
>all crewmembers have 100 vitality and +30 from vehicle qualification
>several penetrations only result in wounded crewmembers at worst and only occasionally killed
>any penetration kills a crewmember or even the entire crew
>being this assblasted
>>ballistic physics more realistic
No, same across all game modes. Unless you mean a drop indicator is ballistic physics for arcade.
>>armor actually simulated instead of "lol shoot ten times on his heavily armored front and he is kill"
Armour is modelled the same across all game mode, shooting the same spot a bunch of times with a shell until the tank is combat ineffective happens in sim too. It's a game mechanic that simulates the durability of the armor.
>>crew vitality is set to default for all
Never heard of that, do you have a source?
Are you happy? Do I have to go into deeper detail?
the leo 1 was designed in a time period when heat rounds had made massive advances while armor technology still relied on homogenous RHA.
It was known that it would be impossible to build a tank that actually offered decent protection against the HEAT and APDS rounds then in services using RHA without arriving at a 100 ton monster. Thus the leopard 1 and its french equivalent the amx 30 were designed to be higly mobile and hard hitting tanks. For its time the Leopard 1 was the most reliable and mobile tank, the gun L7 was perfectly adequate against t55s and t62s and highly accurate this had been proven by combat experince of the Israelis. Later on as Ammunition research advanced updated APFSDS penetrators with up to 550 RHA equivalent penetration became availiably meaning the L7 even today can combat everything except the most modern MBTs.
I only keep playing in the hope that one day they'll sort it out.
They are making slow progress in general, but in other areas - grind, premium/paper vehicles - they're making it worse.
It might be worth playing in a few years, if it survives that long.
>this general any good?
If you enjoy forced memes, shitposting weeaboos, shitposting name/tripfags, blogging, country vs country shitstorms, and the occasional (very rare) civilized discussion about planes, tanks and WW2, you'll like it here.
But if you can't take the bantz you better leave now.
>spent previous night owning arcade battles with my 5.7 BR tiger I
>activate golden battles wager.
>first battle lost my tiger to a hard to use is-2 and my other 2 tanks from bombers
>second battle same thing only it was king tiger (h)
fuck this shit.
wings , engines (which means you hit the wings too) and the pilot. fuselage hits rarely do anything other than kill gunners.for example the catalina is never going to go down if you only hit the fuselage
That meme was the main weapon used by our savior Shitigi in his crusade against the tripfags.
You might hear about Comett, Closter or Deadlyigi. Those are tripfags of the old days that were driven away by the anti-tripfag shitposters.
they are still here, just don't whore out with trips on and instead post anonymously things like pic related
I don't see either of them getting wrecked in the killfield, so I suppose they survived at least. Maybe it's some sweet glitchy spot there?
Some of them were relevant and iteresting too, fucking faggot.
Also on the webm you can see his name if you can make it out from the poor quality.
>paint flaking on the propeller
>nicks in the leading edge of the wing
>none of the upgrades remove it
Jesus Christ how absolutely disgusting.
>Panther 75mm has slower reload rate than Sherman 105
what the fuck justifies this bullshit
Should I even bother flying the mk4s and mk8 meteor? Sea Meteor is feels like a total endgame the way it's matched up.
I don't know about tanks, but Yak-3 and Griffons are the most dominant sealclubbers in the game and you can't deny this.
>tfw your Shvetsov engine is too high performance for its airframe
>tfw you rip your wings
>tfw Shvetsov engine so high performance you can outrun space battlecruisers that have warp drives
Man i'm really shitty at planes, i've been trying to get into realistic planes (no joystick for sim) but i am so bad at it, i have most nation's planes on era 2 and some 3 but thats from playing arcade.
I suppose i have to practice more.
Anyone got some tips? I like flying Japanese planes
Ah, right. I'm a little tired and coffee is pretty much the only thing keeping me awake, sorry.
With Zeroes you don't have much to rely on other than your turn rate. Zeroes just aren't really that good for anything else.
Then you really don't want to get into Zeroes, man. Or the IJNAS tree at all, since they're all Zeroes until T4 when they get Raidens and Shiden-Kais.
You should get into the IJAAS tree instead. You'll get to get the Hiens which are excellent energy fighters that don't have very impressive firepower at first but really good planes.
Sure is fucking reddit in here
>proof proof post proof we all grills
Im not giving you cocks anything.
Fuck that reminds me of this time where I had some short story due the next morning and I posted in some 4chan thread about it.
Some dude emailed me a story he had written that sufficed the length requirement. I printed that shit out and brought it to class the next day.
Unfortunately the teacher decided she wanted us to read it out loud and i could barely pronounce the weird ass the names the guy had picked.
The teacher had to know, looking back.
Still got an A kek
>prints it out
>doesn't read it
That reminds me of when an ex's brother paid a guy to do his homework in this class all year, then got called out to explain his final paper, about which he knew nothing, and was accused of cheating.
my ex's mom was on the board of the college and the professor was forced to apologize

>out of cigarettes, no money to buy more because broke without job
>>nothing I want to do either so I'm thinking about my mistakes on life
It`s ok to think about the mistake you did in the past but what is important is what you do in the future so that when you look back 10 years you don`t feel bad.

Why are Jap players so good? Every engagement so far has been against Spitfire Mk 9's, Bearcats and Spitfire F's, all of whom have an altitude advantage. Yet they always get fucking smashed.
>J7W1 destroying these fucks like no tomorrow
Honestly what the fuck. Stop doing so well, you're going to push the BR of the Griffons and Bearcats even lower
It feels good anon
