USA vs Soviet Union fighters?

until the mig 15 lol

 

Only a MiG-15 (until the La-15 comes out), all other jets suck big.  I would rather have 3 useful jets in my line-up - F-86 + F9F + F-80 instead of just one.

true

 

.50 cals arent that bad provided there is at least 4x of them. Problem is at the earlier tiers, you will get something like 1 12.7, and 1 7.62, or 1 12.7 and 2 7.62s. So at the lower tiers, US firepower is indeed low compared to other nations starting from rank 3. There are a few exceptions to this, such as the F2A-3 which has 4x 12.7mms and the P40 which has 6x 12.7mms. and the F4Fs which are slightly higher at rank 5, and also have 6x 12.7mms. However the mentioned Hawks I personally consider poorly armed, because the majority of their armament is 3x 7.62mms while only having 1 12.7mm. I would say Soviets atm are the easier of the two to fly, not because of how fast or maneuverable they are, but because the majority of their armament is nose mounted, which makes things infinitely easier to shoot because you only have to worry about drop, and not convergance.

 

Also it may just be the sound, but their guns sound really fast. The damn I-16 guns sound like damn buzzsaws. And the 20mm ShVak cannons sound like machine guns, rather than 20mm cannons.

Some of the US planes in the higher tiers have some very good firepower, just saying.

 

-P-47, 8 M2 machine guns, not much, but when you get the API-T, AKA, firebreath belt, you'll be heaving fun, turning whatever you shoot at into a paper glider on fire.

-P39/63, 37mm cannon speaks for itself, the A-10 and C-1 has one of the best 37mms in the game right now.

-Corsair-1c, 4 an/M2 cannons that seem really strong, shred whatever is infront of you.

-Bearcat-1b, same as the corsair above.

 

I can go on with more, but I cannot really be bothered. ^^

And Bearcat 1a and other planes with M3 browning are awesome too !

4 MGs, same burst mass than 6 MGs M2. You are approaching the Skas laser beam rof.

I don't really like flying the USSR it just doesn't work for me.The good thing with the US is that you have a rather big amount of ammo compared to nations like the USSR and the .50 is great at least at lower levels.The USSR has a Catalina that is your own printing press but I would go with the US hust like flying the aircraft more.Which ever nation you choose have fun  :good:

Myself, I find the Russian lineup of planes lots of fun. Certain US planes you can't go wrong with. Keep in mind I play mainly Arcade Lvs 9 on down. I also play with joystick about 75% of the time and to me a good game is a couple of kills. I could care less about leading the board and play the game for fun which to me it is.

I started with the USSR and the Brits. Then, i've found out that US planes won't turn for shit, German planes won't turn for shit and Japan planes turn too well but lack firepower. I have learned to love the Japanese, but I still hate the lower tiers Italian and US planes.
