But the two P-38s chasing me had an incredible climbing power. They stood on their tails and were catching up to my Type 3. I felt shivers down my spine. I have never had this experinece before. P-40s, P-39s, F4Fs, and even F4Us could not follow the Type 3 in steep climb. But this twin boomed P-38 was following me with ease!

Its actually quite fun right now...its absolutely horrid in performance but the sheer terror you inflict on your enemies when they get shot down is worth it.

Once its patched up...I'm going to be working on this plane.

I think the armament is wrong too yes? The middle one on the list...the one in Red...it has long barrels sticking out. I figured those should be MG151/20's (the 300 or so aircraft equipped with them). But they are Japanese Army Ho 20mm cannons.

I guess we'll see what they do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Looking forward to the Ki-100 too! Similar aircraft...

Pretty sad that the one fighter the Japs get that isnt a zero was messed up.

Thank goodness it's going to be fixed,

maybe...

I dunno... I nailed a Wildcat, Corsie and a Seafire in one sortie with the Ki-61. It might be nerfed right now, but danged if it ain't fun to fly!

Agreed Koro. Its a very hard bird to fly right now...makes the FW190 look easy. But a little work and it does alright.

Flew the Ki61 (Otsu) tonight...wanted to find out what the hubbub about this "POS" type was i heard...
knocked my socks off, actually..to me it has bizarre xharacteristics, but i found it flew very well in spite of that, and while only slightly less in terms of absolute performance in the areas of climb, top speed, dive speed, firepower and damage absorpsion compared to allied and german types, still retaining (IMO) excellent manuverability and ease of control (control harmony?)

IMO, if the Ki61 is any improved in the patch, i think i will have found my favorite new ride...i already love it and think its quite a fighting machine..any improvment and i will feel quilty flying it!..seriously

(curious about the Ki100 too, of course...but I kinda like the speed of the Tony, over the slower 100, specially without haviing to sweat RL engine deficiencies, and the TOny retains more than enough manuverability to deal with most opponents)

I fly it alot and get shot down in it alot.

I can't help it though. Its a beautiful bird inside and out.

That and I have a soft spot for **** planes and absolutely hate flying what everybody else is flying i.e. F4s and Ki84 uber birds.

Looking forward to the Ki100.
