Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • good maneuverability


Cons:


  • almost inferior in every way to the AR80


Performance

This plane is a grinder. You are probably playing it because you want the FW190. It doesn't have much firepower, only having three 7.92's or two MG's and one 20mm cannon. It's maneuverability is decent and your best hope on surviving. The 100 hit point health is average, even with the hawk 75.


Early Research

  • If you have researched the BF109B, some of the engines will be unlocked.
  • if you Have the 20mm from the AR80, you can use it here as well
