looks promising

2018-01-18 21:24:10 UTC  

@Reaps how are the German planes ?

2018-01-18 21:25:54 UTC  

there's a lot of them.

2018-01-18 21:25:55 UTC  

um.

2018-01-18 21:26:03 UTC  

Mg17s are rapid fire, so that's good

2018-01-18 21:26:10 UTC  

MG151s have good ballistics

2018-01-18 21:26:29 UTC  

not necessarily amazing at anything, but pretty good all-rounders

2018-01-18 21:26:41 UTC  

109 is agile-but-fragile

2018-01-18 21:27:10 UTC  

109F onwards are pretty much all centreline armament which makes aiming far less complicated

2018-01-18 21:29:07 UTC  

do the british get the shit stick with plane ammo too?

2018-01-18 21:29:30 UTC  

.303s are a bit naff

2018-01-18 21:29:35 UTC  

but that changes quick enough

2018-01-18 21:29:57 UTC  

Hispano 20mms are good

2018-01-18 21:30:03 UTC  

Think they first show up on the Spit V

2018-01-18 21:30:10 UTC  

Spits in generally are forgiving planes

2018-01-18 21:30:22 UTC  

Earlier ones can tear wings at higher speeds though

2018-01-18 21:30:59 UTC  

If you're doing herp-de-derp turnfighting and not wanting to learn much dogfighting craft, then Japan and Britain are where it's at

2018-01-18 21:31:15 UTC  

You'll just pick up bad habits that will be hard to shake if you want to try other nations

2018-01-18 21:31:38 UTC  

Lemmesee if I've got..

2018-01-18 21:31:40 UTC  

*rummage*

2018-01-18 21:33:37 UTC  

This is just raw footage I lifted from an EC match

2018-01-18 21:33:42 UTC  

May or may not be of interest

2018-01-18 21:34:26 UTC  

Most important thing to note is the lack of attempts to turn hard or doing fancy tricks that bleed your speed

2018-01-18 21:35:06 UTC  

I miss a pass on a Gladiator and instead of trying to glue myself on his tail I just extend away and set myself up for another pass

2018-01-19 17:05:37 UTC  

@Reaps how do I git gud at strafing ground targets?

2018-01-19 17:17:59 UTC  

point crosshair at them.

2018-01-19 17:18:04 UTC  

don't fly into the ground

2018-01-19 17:19:12 UTC  

I do, but they never seem to hit 😐

2018-01-19 17:19:24 UTC  

how do you mean?

2018-01-19 17:19:27 UTC  

what are you strafing?

2018-01-19 17:19:31 UTC  

bullets bounce off tanks bruh

2018-01-19 17:19:43 UTC  

also, on a more serious note

2018-01-19 17:19:46 UTC  

try test flight

2018-01-19 17:19:49 UTC  

there's at least one ground target

2018-01-19 17:20:05 UTC  

aim slightly above your target to compensate for shell drop

2018-01-19 17:20:10 UTC  

further away, higher you aim

2018-01-19 17:20:13 UTC  

even when diving

2018-01-19 17:20:36 UTC  

Strafing combat cars or AA
