*cough* Ki-94 Ki-87 *cough* - so true. 

Yes they are prototypes but Japan needs them as they don't have a whole lot of other vehicles.

Not sure what the point of this is, if the developers really needed to fill a gap then they would not have made both the Ki-87 and Ki-94 premium (or exclusive)...Japan's Tier-IV is pretty fleshed out with aircraft that were mass-produced. Meanwhile US players who play in the BR 6.0 have no choice but to use F8F, which is good but not to everyone's playstyle. I think adding the F4U-4 and 5 would make US vs. Japan matches much more immersive while also plugging the gap between 5.0 and 6.0.

That's basically where this whole suggestion is about (balance-wise)!  To sum it up, all F4U-4's and -5's saw significant action in Korea and the -4 still in WW2 and they make great 5.3 or 5.7 BR aircraft.

Looks like the US is getting another prototype next patch (grizzly). I really hope that they'll throw in a P-51H or Corsair too...

Me too bro. This Grizzly was a prototype and I'm not particularly in for prototypes in the main TT and neither as a premium.

Guys I have great news! According to this reddit post (https://www.reddit.com/r/Warthunder/comments/6xgfyh/chieftain_mk10_p51h_f4u4_and_more_for_171/) F4U-4 and F4U-4B are on the devserver for the coming update 1.71! P-51H too!

You think it's already over?

It has just begun :secret:

 

 

All of your records of the 4-Hogs will be required at later time for upcoming routine bug reporting.

 

A bit of issue with the F4U-4 based from 1.71 dev server I found were the usage of early .50 cal munitions & some problematic flaps. Maybe lack of payload option too (like rocket + bomb combination), but I didn't focus on that at the time I tested it.

If the flap and tailhook bugs still exist once the devserver goes live again I'll make a bug report on it. Honestly, I do think the payload options are to keep the aircraft balanced for its BR.Keep in mind it's still the devserver though! It's normal for some bugs to be in there. o7

That's why it's just getting started.

 

Payload is off limit now, after rocket damage to tank has been significantly nerfed. 4000 lb of bombs will be needed for actual ground attack to take effect.

This topic like all other suggestions added in 1.71 will be moved to implemented suggestions. Congrats on your suggestion mate! 

Thanks! I'll really enjoy flying the F4U-4. I already had a sneak peak using the dev server though!  :salute:
