Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Flying block of steel, highest HP of any tier 6 light fighter or multi-role
  • Equips the 2nd largest compliment of machine guns in the game
  • Can carry bombs and rockets unlike the F4U-1
  • Strong boost, can zoom out of hairy situations
  • Surprisingly good service ceiling


Cons:


  • Flying block of steel, turn time is as bad as the Fw 190 A5's
  • 500lb Bombs take twice as long to reload as predecessor despite being the exact same bombs
  • Machine gun only armament, no autocannons, takes longer to down heavier aircraft
  • Poor climb rate for its max altitude
