    According to the squad statistics, on this date, the fighter that the pigs are best in is...

    To discount statistical variance only aircraft that achieved over thirty kills were polled.

    drum roll...

    of course, the FW 190a-8 with 108 kills to only 14 losses making a K/D of 7.2!

    The Sturmbock rocks!

    The contenders included:
    • FW 190d-9 Kills 30 losses 11 KD 2.5 of course, another FW
    • LA-7 with Kills 94 losses 79 KD 1.175 speedy attrition fighter.
    • ME 262 Kills 38 losses 5 KD 6.33 We got squadies that can fly this thing.
    • Mossie 6 Kills 90 losses 44 KD 2.0 Must be all ground targets...nothing else explains it.
    • P-51d Kills 47 losses 27 KD 1.67 Fast and good visibilty
    • Spit 16 Kills 34 losses 31 KD 1.06 another attrition fighter.

    Great job with a great fighter fellow pigs.

    How are we doing compared to others? Lets take a look. (November data used).
    Pigs scored 14.2 in the ME 262. The rest of the arena managed 7.6
    Pigs scored 6.17 in the ME 163. The rest of the arena managed 4.84
    Pigs scored 3.87 in the A-8. The arena scored 1.12
    Pigs scored 2.81 in the A-5. The arena scored 1.33
    Pigs scored 2.71 in the F-8. The arena scored a mere 0.57
    Pigs scored 2.12 in the Mossie 6. The arena managed 1.23
    Pigs scored 1.99 in the P-51D. The arena managed 1.19
    Pigs scored 1.95 in the Spit 8. The arena managed 0.99
    Pigs scored 1.92 in the Spit 16. The arena managed 1.13
    Pigs scored 1.88 in the Hellcat. The arena managed 0.94
    Pigs scored 1.82 in the K-4. The arena managed 1.36
    Pigs scored 1.68 in the D-9. The arena managed 1.48
    Pigs scored 1.64 in the Typhoon. The arena managed 1.19
    Pigs scored 1.42 in the LA-7. The arena managed 1.31
    Pigs scored 1.29 in the F4U-1. The arena managed 1.24
    Pigs scored 1.11 in the P-47D-40. The arena managed 0.8
    Pigs scored 1.07 in the P-38L. The arena managed 0.81
    Pigs scored 1.07 in the Hurricane 2d. The arena managed 0.79
    Pigs scored 1.05 in the A6M5b. The arena managed 1.01

    This is astounding. In every instance where pigs flew a plane where they racked up more then twenty kills they
    outperformed the rest of the arena; sometimes by quite a margin.

    I'd guess that we've specialized in particular planes and, in these areas of specialization,
    we dominate against players that have less experience.

    Well I guess if I'd care more about score, my KI-84 would be higher on the list. .96 and .97 are good enough for me considering the amount of time I fly. :)

    This is very interesting info though.

    The Ki-84 tends to score low because of the way they're flown and not because they're a bad plane. People grab a Ki-84 when they want to jump into the middle of a free-for-all and wrestle. The Ki-84 is a PERFORMANCE plane. It can climb like a monkee and accelerates as quick as you please. Turn fighting is a joy and it has decent visibility. Sort of like a Bf-109 that can actually turn well.

    But it has poor dive performance so "picking" is a challenge.

    It's also delicate so head-on attacks are a very dicey proposition.

    Likewise a flak hit on a ki-84 is very bad news so vulching is not recommended either.

    It's got excellent guns so it can usually get "a" bomber. Staying to get that 2nd or 3rd bomber is where it's delicate nature will betray the pilot.

    As a premier turn-and-burn plane it offers stellar capabilities for people who have the Air Combat Manuevering (ACM) down good. Unfortunately ACM usually comes at the cost of lower Situational Awareness (SA) so while the Ki-84 pilot is astounding everyone with his moves a lumbering Thunderbolt will dive in and turn him into matchsticks if he fails to see the danger.

    Newbies and casual players gravitate to planes that have excellent performance but performance without experience will only take you so far.

    Regardless, the Ki-84 is a fun plane to fly.

    I remember once repeatably cutting the corners on a P-38 till it was out of E wherein I casually whittled it down using just machineguns.
