Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Superb firepower
  • decent maneuverability


Cons:


  • Performance suffers greatly if equipped with bombs.
  • stock grind is a pain


Performance

This plane is quite odd. The 4 12.7 MGs are nice but it feels slow. The bombs are helpful, but in order to have the best dog-fighting chances, drop them first. Most people view it as a push over plane and an easy kill.
