Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Extremely rugged


Cons:


  • Sluggish performance
  • Stock airframe does not have any cowl guns


Performance

The P-40 Warhawk excels at boom and zoom, high energy fighting. Be sure to gain altitude, drop on your target, and use a high yoyo maneuver to regain altitude. Dropping the flaps and turn fighting in the Warhawk is counter intuitive, as it is arguably the best in tier at energy retention. Although its forward firing guns seem light compared to the rest of the fighters at its tier, the four (upgraded it has six) .50 cal machineguns seem to work just fine. Having the same guns as the F4F wildcat, unlocking them can help ease the grind. Head ons are not a bad option however be careful because most fighters have auto cannons. It's high speed combined with its large health pool of 235 HP at max make it a good fighter. The lack of autocannons can get a little annoying and it is outmanoeuvred by almost everything, but if you look past those things, you have a nice fighter and a fun plane to play.


Early Research

  • It is recommended to go with getting the airframe and the extra guns first dispite that It takes lots of XP,
  • go for engines next
