      Niccaman It's just TRULY REFRESHING to hear someone actually laughing and having a great time learning and playing, WITHOUT all the over the top competition and angry game play. ENJOY MY MAN! Also practice DOES make your skills better. Because ABSOLUTELY NO ONE IS PERFECT, no matter how much practice they have or do. PEACE, POWER AND PROSPERITY TO ALL!

    Arcade is easy af because theres no spin just change your flaps into landing a second into a turn and you turn like 180 degrees in under a second

    Bro when you dive it needs to be right over your target on at a slight angle towards it.

    big hint change your elevator too W,S keys and aileron to A,D and rudder E,Q. and you'll be a great pilot. HOLD C and you can look behind you too see the enemy fighter. Learn how to use these keys and you'll be a great war thunder pilot.

  • Chris Brown
    Chris Brown 14 days ago

    I don't know if this helps? I haven't played this game yet but here's and FYI.
    The Japanese Zero had more dexterity than the first planes we used against them.
    1) The zero could turn faster to the right better than it could left. This is because of the direction the propeller was spinning. Japanese knew this and used it to great advantage. Now if you could force him to turn left you had a better chance of hitting it.
    U.S. pilots were even warned that if you got behind a Zero pilot that banked Left hard once you got behind him. Then you were probably behind an experienced pilot
    Once the U.S. pilots figured this out. The kill rate shot up.
    The Zero had a good thrust to weight ratio but it was not a great plane. They were basically a flying piece of plywood and cloth. No real protection for the pilot. One hit to the cockpit or engine and you pretty much had a kill. Where in the later days of WWII. The planes the U.S. were putting in the air were flying back to base with half a wing missing or chunks of the planes body missing.

    Do *not* turn your side towards the enemy when in a vertical loop.
    Stay upside down and keep turning upwards from the point of view of your plane in the Bf 109 E series.
    You loose *so* much energy when you try to turn sideways.

  • Luredreier
    Luredreier 15 days ago

    No, it is *not* a boom and zoomer.
    You're mixing up boom and zoom with energy fighters.
    The Bf 109 climbs well, retains energy well in vertical loops, but is so-so in horizontal turning.
    The E line has amazing flaps so if you're in a pinch you can use them to out turn a enemy when you use landing flaps but you'll kill your speed pretty much instantly when you do so.
    But if you have enough speed to use them for max effect yet not enough to rip them then you can convert your speed into turn rate for a short period of time till you've bleed out your speed.
    Mind you, this is a *very* bad idea if there's other planes in the air as you'll be low and slow afterwards and easy pray for every single other plane in the air till you've regained your speed.

    No, again, you're mixing up a boom and zoomer for energy fighters.
    American planes often can handle higher speeds in a dive then German or Japanese planes can.
    If you for instance got a F4F-3 or some such then you can go into a *shallow* dive and outrun most enemies as long as you don't hit the ground first.
    With a Bf 109 your best chance depends on what variant you have and what enemy you got on your tail.
    While yes, I would try to dive to build up speed in that situation, I'd then try to get behind him.
    I don't remember if you can loop better then the spit or not of the top of my head, if you can then a loop up and around using combat flaps might allow you to get behind him, although honestly you're a bit too damaged to do that reliably.
    Another thing you *could* do is to try to use landing flaps to do a sudden break when he's close enough and hope that he'll overshoot and land in front of your guns, works with the E line.
    With the F-line I'd try to do a shallow climb and try to slowly out climb him and see if I'd be able to get away.

    Mind you, I'm mainly a tanker and not a pilot, so more experienced players might disagree with me and be right.

    Anyway, it's a bad, bad, bad situation you've landed yourself in.

    Also, why are you not using wartime emergency power?
    WEP to go above 100% engine power?
    Don't do that 99% of the time, but when you got someone on your tail some engine damage is preferable to being shot down...

  • Luredreier
    Luredreier 15 days ago

    That's a truth with modifications.
    It's certainly a *massive* advantage to have more energy, but never underestimate your opponent.
    Some planes can make you regret diving down on them pretty much regardless of your energy levels if they know what they're doing.

  • Lucas Cristiano
    Lucas Cristiano 21 day ago

    p36 is not a zoomer and never will be they're the contrary, very light they can even outurn a zero.
    however a p40 can be used an energy fighter and outrun an early zero, I'm talking about an a6m2 not the newest variants, cmon guys this is basic, never flew in il2 1946?
    Here's a quick basic about the plane and it's countries.
    Americans, they have good planes, the earliest models are good for turning however from the p40 and ahead it's energy planes.
    The japanese, all about turning planes and powerfull weapons such as 20 mm cannons, german's got the mightiest weapons and the heaviest and fastest planes, the Russians are balanced, tho the producers are russians, and they make their planes almost unbeatable talking about the i-185 here and the Lavochkins variants
    this is not a pay to win game... premium airplanes won't do you any good if you turn around and bleed all your precious speed, think about which plane you have and never turn with a plane that can outmaneuver you.

    I really only play arcade battles, idk why, I just have the most fun there & since I unlocked the he112 bo & my new bf 109 e-2, I get like 15 kills each game before I end up getting both those aircraft shot down using boom & zoom, however, I know you're just supposed to climb away and or dive and speed away when being engaged by turn fighters, however, they ALWAYS get me. always.
    anyways I digress, using a actual energy fighter & energy fighting in arcade battles equals a win in pretty much every match you play. provided of course you get just as many ground target kills as you do air targets. I feel bad sometimes cause I know each match I make 3 or 4 different players go through all of their reserve aircraft then they're stuck just spectating, however by doing this, I've been able to A) practice my energy fighting for sim battles and realistic and B)unlock and practice with ALL of the aircraft Ive unlocked specifically FOR sim & RB's.
    but yeah, even with all that practice, unless you're highly skilled, once you've got a turn fighter on your tail, you better pray that you haven't gone into too steep of a climb & still have enough energy left to climb away from those pesky p-26's and p-36's/He-51's. LMAO

  • wickedwiccan gaming

    when you want to gain speed, stop chasing the plane you want, do a actual dive for that speed, then catch up to the target.
