Is the P400 available as a flyable? If so, how does it compare to the P39 in Il2/FB?

I know, but how does it fly? Does having a 20mm Hispano cannon make hitting the target easier?

The P-400 seems okay to me if you are careful how you fly against the Japanese fighters. Its not a really bad turner with a careful hand and combat flaps, but it bleeds speed like its going out of fashion. Not good in the vertical either.

Good acceleration and speed though and these are the strengths to play too. The 20mm is a much better air to air weapon than the M4, you can actually maintain a smooth track of a target and fire without your nose going everywhere and ruining your aim. Plus, even the 20mm is overkill on Zero's and Hayabusa's so its very well armed.

Pretty solid plane as well, it seems like it can take quite a bit of damage.

I've only flown it once so far in a 2 vs 1 against Zeros.

It did okay, IMO. I took down both Zeros, but I still prefer the P39-Q1 I think. The P400 just doesn't feel quite as good to me.

I'll have to fly it more to decide for sure.

I don't know what this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif is supposed to mean, but if you were serious about the question, then Google his name. If you dare.
