I have previously search for info about the different nations but much of what I found is incorrect or outdated.
So I thought I ask here, I like to play all-around fighter and good bombers in arcade. Many suggested British planes but then I read that their bomber (tier 1-8) suck and that they got huge gaps in their tree.
Thanks for any answer in advance.

For solid bombers, I'd choose the US for durability or Russians for overall divebombing. But don't play bombers, they received one hell of a nerf and might make you mad.


For fighters, the British, US and Russian fighters are pretty good (although the Chaika is a little too good). The Japanese are also good, but the A6M2-N can't land on the ground and take off again. The Ki-43 and Ki-61 though make great planes despite their weak armor.


So yeah, those are the lines that have the best low rank planes. For high ranks, I dunno.

For arcade, USSR and Great Britain are the best, they are good in almost any situation and tactic, have powerful armament , agile, and dont get vaporized from a single burst, unless fired by other soviet or brit fighters....


Compared to them, all other lack in one way or the other.


US is mediocre, Germany is just torture until level 6-7 (and even then its mediocre at best) and Japan is too flimsy and lacks firepower.

"Improve gameplay" , nice euphemism for German nerfs...........

Short answer...russians...followed by UK...then long time nothing.

If you can read german...i just wrote a wall of text regarding that matter:



A less short answer...



OP Reserve planes

Chaika/Ishak are good fighters but i dont like them that much

Lagg-3 OP fighter at this tier

BB-1/Su-2's very good allround bomber/fighter (my favourite planes in the game)


Russians are quite cheap to repair below tier 4-5 and have only around 10min repairtime



Gladiator is ok as fighter

Hurricans are good and the Spitfires are very good

Blenheim, Beaufort and Havoc are ok as bomber

Beaufighter is OP big time


Brits have very high repair costs at tier 4-6

Wow lotta people don't realize how mean the Japanese planes are....


Japanese has a lot of early Tier presences and hits way outside its weight


T2 Hayabusa - Best dogfighter in the game probably only thing it lacks is armament but once you stick to someones tail they wont be able to remove you (fast, maneuverable)


Zero line - Best overall dogfighters in game with good armament. I have shot down several jets with these planes


N1K - Great dog fighter with 4 cannons and also carries bombs... once again great dogfighter


B5N2 - single engine bomber with only 1 gunner BUT! it can carry a 1000kg bomb with a 34 sec reload at max and is maneuverable as hell


Basically playing with my Clan i will get pulled into T17 matches and still end up on the top of the leader board about every time with T12 and under planes.
