    109s are notorious for that. They turn and accelerate really well but compress like fuck so it's easier to underestimate the dive you take.
    Same thing can be said about the A20g, good chance that a person using bombs with it is going to smash into the ground because they underestimate its dive ability as they lose as they lawndart at 600 km/h trying to score direct hits.

    People keep asking for this and Lassar said there's no chance at all.

    It wasn't ever a real thing and there's zero need for it with the half billion twin engine heavy/night fighters which Germany has actually built and tested.

    F-80 isn't worth the grind through the P-80.

    Wrong, yes it is.

    Clubs props and has amazing engine power for a low tier Jet, it's kind of undertiered.

    Panther is a jet for manly men and womanly women who aren't afraid of no mogs.

    F-80C is babby's first jet for unripe cowards.

    just pissing around with it in test flights, it seems to basically be MiG+

    it flies like a mig but has WEP and guns that arent worthless garbage

    Don't get deceived, MiG-15bises are faster and climb better than you, even without WEP, but the Panther has more agility unless it comes to energy starvation and the guns are indeed better.

    Fighting MiG-15Bis' in the Panther feels like a honorable even if somewhat uphill battle. I will take it over clubbing Japanese props in F-80C any day.

    Does the panther do well against the German Saber?
    German Sabre can just keep speeding away from every single other plane in the game (including American and Japanese Sabres) until it runs out of fuel, but that's how far it advantages on the Panther go. Panther is more agile perhaps except very high speeds, climbs faster, accelerates faster, and has better guns.

    Now with all this talk about the Panther, does it have it's toughness like the real one?
    I was reading about some pilot's accounts of flying it and some said that on several occasions they could still RTB and land fine after taking a 40mm AAA hit or after getting completely ripped up from ground fire.

    Not really, no. All jets are pretty much RNG based russian roulette, and all to the same degree. Pretty much every .50 bullet has a chance of taking your wing off or setting you onto fatal fire.

    Pretty much one jets I would call "relatively tough" in the current game are the 262 and the Arado.

    And what? It's not like CGI environments and effects make for instance Transformers a not live action movie. Shia Leboufs dumb face is a window into cruel reality.

    Edited:

    Video meant to (quite indirectly, the vehicles don't even really fit) celebrate Soviet victory at Moscow sonehow paints Soviets as victorious, so damn dirty propaganda.

    They should have depicted Soviets getting their asses kicked, as it happened historically™ .

    Haven't been reading the dev blog because we're still fucking waiting on 1.43, but, on Battle Ratings and Matchmaking:

    In the end our follow-up program will be:

    1) We plan to completely remove BR from RB. Instead, we will have tables which will show what vehicles of what country can meet each other in the battle. This table will be available to be viewed by players directly inside the game.

    We will also have a balance weight for the country pairs “under the hood”, meaning if vehicle CAN meet another vehicle it won’t mean that they will meet often and in equal proportions, so it almost like a battle rating, but only for country pairs. So a hypothetical encounter frequency will be shown for the aircraft (of course, in reality the encounter frequency with different aircraft will depend on who exactly is queued at that moment).

    2) For top ranks (5th) we going to implement mixed nation battles. In fact there are some kind of Mixed Battles already – 4 of 5 nations have MiG-15s or F-86s, but for matchmaking it is harder to make a good match – 8 F-86s + 2 MiG-15s in Germany and 4 F-86s in USA with 2 MiG-15s in USSR obviously can make a very good match but not now. Another thing to notice – in this mode we have a dire situation, there will be no aircraft equal to the Me 262 for other countries, since the aircraft was unique, without equal. And the queue fullness at top ranks at non peak hours is not giving us any choice (at the moment in nonpeak hours queues are 10 minutes long with majority of the battles starting in 5×5 battles, this increases imbalance issues).

    These changes are planned to be implemented soon after 1.43
    Therefore, the main ideas for Simulator could be only ideas which solve queue filling:

    Mixed battles (statistically makes situation in 2.5 – 3 times better)

    “Axis vs Allies” battles (this makes the situation in 1.5 times better based on statistics, which is noticeably better, but not enough)

    New “Battle” mode, where players are joining in one session (currently in development)

    In the first two variants it doesn’t matter if you count country pairs or not, because of the obvious reasons of missing different country pairs in the queue.

    In the third suggestion, before-battle balance is only approximate, the main balance should be achieved by in-session mechanics.


    Finally, at this moment we usually have only two countries available. That is why there are no big reason to implement a new balance system (based on country pairs) for Simulator. Though it doesn’t mean that it won’t be implemented for unification.
    It's a interesting read. We'll see if they live up to it.

    It is, but considering you need to be going relatively slow to get into a flatspin and considering you are burning extreme amount of velocity while flat spinning, it's never going to last more than a little moment and some planes are probably incapable of it in general.

    Honestly Soviet 20mm is the most ass of 20mm since the latest gun damage rebalance, I think they fiddled with it and now shrapnel does far less damage than explosions, and Soviet HEF relies on shrapnel more than the sheer blast.

    Fuck japan in general. Zeroes have shitty speed, their guns do no damage and catch on fire as soon as somebody farts on them from 1km away (and no, nobody is stupid enough to turn fight them). Ki84 is fuckin garbage too, their guns do no damage again, and it's simply not as good as the planes it faces. I'd take a p51 over ki84 any day of the week. It climbs better, it's faster in a straight line and it turns just as well.
