MiG 21 vs F 104C BR

Explain how the F 104C with AIM-9B is balanced at 9.7 when the MiG 21 is at 8.7 when BOTH planes where available in 1955 ?

I don’t play Arcade but it’s probably because the 104 is by far the better plane? More acceleration and much better gun with a lot more ammo

Also a useful ground pounding payload.

Well done - you have managed a completely useless answer with no relevance to the topic and ALSO containing no useful information on any other topic.

And?

Based on some older data, AAB is a popular mode. This post from 2021, How popular are the various modes? old-forum.warthunder.com shows that AAB is one of the most played modes.

Leave this thread, it is about arcade. You do not get to preach about how air RB is the best mode here, because that is subjective. I will flag your comments if you keep being off topic.

Cause it’s air arcade, and the F-104C turns into a beast… whereas the Mig-21 becomes worse.

Uhh … no 😑

I am not the one crying.

If you were somewhat nice, you would explain why without being rude. I don’t know how that is so hard for you to do.

I have learned to let the moderators do their jobs, which they do fairly and impartially. Maybe someone can actually provide a reason to the topic. After I have flown and tested both, the logic escapes me. The performance argument makes little sense: e.g. P-47N and A6M3 are both classed as fighters at 4.3. However they perform radically different. So much so, that the P-47 is quintessential boom and zoom vs the Zero, epitome of the turn fighter. Different tactics do not justify a chasm of BR difference. If they did, then by using this performance rationale, the entire US aircraft tree from Tier V down should be lowered by a whole BR.

I genuinely don’t even get what you’re trying to say here are you trying to say aircraft performance shouldn’t affect BR because thats what it looks like
