I know its an Attack plane which fits two rolls but come on.
I have an 4 star fully agile BF Fighter that has problem to outurn an IL-2 that can tank tons of shots. If that thing is as armored as presented it shouldnt turn almost as fast as an Fighter plane that is made of paper. Especially with all that armament asw it carries.
Idk how many times ive peppered an IL2 which is lvl 7 with my Lvl15 Fighter plane to its tail and wings so it start smooking and still it can perform turns like presented here.
I mean doesnt make sense that first Russia starts off with an Biplane that has twice the guns as the german variant with rockets to add then comes in with an IL-2 that just sneeze on almost every plane to almost instantly critical hit them with their 20mm that they also have plenty of.
We should think of what were presenting here since to me it make no sense balance wise since i cant see any good reason even on the ground to measure this one up early on
To add: Sure ive killed a lot of planes with this fine BF and its powerful. But an Lvl7 that only cost 1 silver to get upgrade parts to add that both can tank a lot, have a lot of armament and perform like an fighter is just pure bs to me. I cant head to head against this thing cause of larger risks involved and cant barely out turn it. And on top of this the damn IL can even agile perform when almost standing still to add like its hard to stall the thing so tailing it takes a lot of figgeting.
And if i try to outrun it with lift it still can be on my tail and couple of scratches and im done…
