Alright partner, first of all I’m sure you don’t play with the FW190 and you haven’t even read about this plane’s achievements on the battlefield (see English Channel 1942), but let’s put history aside and let’s talk about the FW problem in game.
As I already explained to you, I’ve been playing with the FW190 since 2021, I started in simulation battles playing the me-109, and as I saw that most pilots used the 109 I decided to try the fw190, in this time, the best players, those who stood out were always in a 190.
With a lot of training I managed to master the FW190, at first I was very angry, because the plane has an extremely low turning rate (which is actually real), any threat that would appear behind me was the sure of defeat. Trials, errors and successes, I learned to use the advantages of the FW190 (good roll rate, immediate rudder response, engine that admits negative G-force without showing failure, very fast speed reduction, structure that supports almost 900km/h, among others…).
You are again assuming that I am here wanting to make the FW190 something that it never was, neither in real life nor in the game: a fighter specialized in close-range confrontations (dogfights), my purpose here is not this, but rather, to question the model of FW190 both Antons and Dora! It’s not about saying “the FW190 has to have more advantage than everyone”, but questioning at first if the FW190 A5 (4.7), D13 (5.3), D12 (5.7) and D9 (5.7) are in place right!
You see, Gaijin put a premium Spitfire, from Israel, at B.R 5.0, the plane simply has a climb rate of 31 m/s, and it is an aircraft that NEVER saw any battle in the second war. And yes I’m going to point out about the .50 machine guns, even if you tell me here any nonsense about 50 caliber being an effective ammunition and bla bla bla, so if a 50 caliber can be effective, tell me how, a f… 20mm it is not? Could it be that allied planes were made of titanium? because as far as I know, and read, one of the advantages on the battlefield was the German aircraft armament.
Now you have a game that brings an extremely inefficient 20mm and it seems that when you take them out you are throwing hand grenades at the opponent given their inaccuracy. I’ll just keep playing the game, I like the FW190, I think it’s a formidable fighter for its time (the one in real life, not the one in the game), and I’ll try to relearn how to play with it and deal with the discrepancy in advantages of the allied team.
it’s what we have.
