Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good climb rate
  • Good turn rate
  • Weapons rarely overheat
  • High rate of fire, causing large amounts of damage at close range
  • Low stall speed


Cons:


  • Short reach of fire when using MGs only
  • Fragile wings which can be easily destroyed


Performance

The Spitfire I is an excellent hybrid aircraft. With the ability to use both BnZ and TnB tactics, it can counter most threats easily. The maneuverability Gained from using the 8 .303 is one route, however with the 20mm cannons equipped, the Spitfire 1 becomes the fighter with the most firepower in tier 5!

Remember however this is not a purely BnZ aircraft, and requires the support of allied aircraft to win a aerial engagement. However it is very simple to compliment and support BnZ aircraft in their roles while flying the spitfire I. American aircraft can outrun you, but you can outrun German aircraft. You can outmaneuver both, but not Russian and Japanese planes. A good balanced tier 5 fighter.


Early Research

  • Initially research the Merlin III engine
  • Next research the Spitfire II airframe
  • Research the final two engines before researching the Spitfire V


It is suggested that you use the following equipment:

  • Reinforced Covering II
  • Improved Reflector Sight
  • Aircraft Polish I
