Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good firepower
  • Decently high health pool


Cons:


  • Below average maneuverability
  • Engine is easily destroyed


Performance

The P-36 plays just like its former, the hawk 75. At first, it has only synchronized MG's (one being a 12.7 and the other a 7.62) but after a little grind you will have 4 wing mounted 7.62s. This plane is similar to the BF109 in the fact that it has a high health pool and good guns but is also like the Bristol 146 because it has some manoeuvreability to it as well. Best at head ons with soviet or Japanese fighters but can fight a normal battle too. Be careful of agile planes like the A6M1 it can wreck you if you are not careful. It's altitude performance helps it compete at higher altitudes where German and British aircraft are.


Early Research

  • obtaining the upgraded guns is a must
