edit: So it appears some people wish for the BR to be lowered to somewhere around 6.3-6.0 i've edited the poll to reflect that.

Make sure to delete your vote and place it in the correct one.

 

Yeah ok, we all know that the Me 262's are "feeling themselves for their BR" due to their "overwhelming armament that makes them competitive". However i fail too see how it's stats or armament make the Me 262 A1-U4 competitive for it's BR. It's outperformed by almost all opponents it faces. The 50mm cannon is pretty much a joke. The default belt is terrible with having only 1 out of 3 shots fitted with minengeshoss. This means that if you do somehow hit a plane it will most likely do little damage . Accompany the aircraft's performance and armament to the fact this thing faces Mig/La 15's, F86 sabres, and Sea meteors/mk.4's and what you get is an aircraft that arguably stands no chance at being competitive whatsoever to the opponent's it faces. Heck, the U4 would most likely struggle against early post WW2 jets.

 

So here's my suggestion: lower it's battle rati... *gets shot*

Yes yes yes, we've all heard this before. But the BR on the U4 seriously needs to be lowered to make it even slightly competitive. Having the U4's BR being lowered to 6.7 would allow it face B-17's and B-24's which would allow it to be more competitive along with slightly addressing the recent B-17 spam. It would also feel much more balanced facing not such high tier jet's such as the migs and sabres.

 

To sum it up the performance of the Me 262 A1-U4 is insufficient enough for it to even be remotely competitive against most of its peers. This accompanied with the fact its extraordinarily difficult to hit fast moving jet's with the 50mm gun and the fact the gun is terrible unless you have Air Target belt unlocked makes the aircraft very hard to be efficient with. The issue can be fixed by lowering it's BR to something around 6.7 allowing it to see Bombers and Early post war jets. Doing so would increase it's competitiveness and have a slight impact on the recent wave of B-17 spam without allowing it to club prop planes such as the P-51.

 

Please take the poll results and think them over a bit Gaijin, thats all im asking for. GLORY TO ALL MIGHTY NARWHAL SCHWALBE!! o/

Let's not push our luck. For now lets at least get it to fulfil its historical role as an anti bomber. :P

Support it. Me 262 A1/U4 was and should be used as an Anti-Bomber weapon. At it's current BR there is no way it can do it's role. It should be lowered to at least 6.7.

 

It would certainly decrease bomber spam.

Should be 6.0 tops... (B17E's are 5.7, B17G is 6.0, B24D is 6.3)

You also talk about clubbing props? Lel, how? It only has a 50mm derpcannon.

My exact point

Even if it did, only 1/3 of the rounds in the default belt actually do anything

Not only is it over tiered, at its current BR, the 1.0 difference bracket prevents it from facing nearly all of the aircraft it was designed to engage. It doesn't make sense from a historical or balance perspective.
