Premium airplanes have increased silver earnings, and usually cheaper repair. However, for increased profitability to pay: in most cases, the premium aircraft are inferior to credit counterparts in combat and flight characteristics. But do not think that technology is a premium ballast in the team. For the experienced pilot who knows his plane and is able to use his strengths, the game "at a premium" will be no less effective than a conventional aircraft.
Benefits of premium equipment
- More credits for each battle;
- "Elite" status, it is possible to quickly start earning free experience right of the bat;
- Transfer crew that come from a same-nation aircraft without penalty and retraining;
- Immediate option of accelerated crew training from the get-go.
Premium planes should be used as a premium trainer - the crew, transferred with credits or goldc for premium airplanes of the same class will not have penalties to the main specialty. However, in the opposite direction, this rule does not apply - the crew, trained specifically for the premium on the plane with the usual technique of transferring with credits gets all the standard penalties. Hence, a crew should always be trained for a non-premium aircraft and then used in premium aircraft aswell. In the case of French and Chinese aircraft this is currently not possible, as these nations only have Premium aircraft and no regular tech tree aircraft.
