Which one would you fly into your near suicide death run? I'm not sure if the planes are fixed not playing war thunder until tanks come out. Too bored seal clubbing Americans in the rinse repeat boom and zoom. Anyway firepower, armor ,speed, etc, etc

In game, the P47. I'm also bias for single engine planes


In the real world and with out the bias, the P-38J/L and ultimately the K ending the P38 line at 1943. The P38K was better than most WW2 fighters and would of only saw real competition in 1945.

Though the P-38 had a higher production cos.  One of the reason the P-38K didn't come in to service was because it was expensive to build, maintain and it required changing the factories from P-51/P-47 to P-38 witch takes time, time that no one had. Though the P-38K was one of the best planes of the time period. Would diffidently put 1945 era planes in a run for their money. 

Sadly, it's a forgotten plane. Stuck in with the U.S. 'pre-production' crowd of history, and as a plane design in America, it didn't have the luxury to be tested in the battle field since that was happening in Europe. Ta-152 is a pre-production aircraft. But because it had the luxury to fight since it was manufactured in the front lines pretty much. Thus being justified in this game. Truth is, there is no difference in the Ta-152 and P-38K except the Ta-152 was born in to a battlefield.


All that is irrelevant though.We have the P-38G and P-47D. The P-47D is hands down better than the P-38G.

But I've seen some people do some pretty scary things with the P-38.

P-47, there is a reason most fighters are single engine.

 

Also there is a reason why the P-38 (later versions atleast) is a very good fighter

during the war P-38 all the way. little less firepower than the P47 but MUCH more accurate and it can take a bigger beating as you can keep fighting even when you only have a single engine and 4 feet of your wing missing lol.

 

in the game however P47 no doubt for obvious reasons.

I don't deny that but i do not know much about the p-38.

 

As far as i know (and i hope to be corrected):

 

p-38 > p-47 -pitch

p-38 < p-47 -roll

p-38 > p-47 net Power/weight

p-38 < p-47 top speed high and low (including maximum speed before structural failure)

p-38 < p-47 aerodynamic

P47 for the roll rate. You need a good roll rate to execute all those ACM moves faster.
