    Default New Ta in upcoming 1.57

    Really excited for this Ta, tier 4 right under the Ta152h tree, 5 cannons will be nice addition to the family.

    And it'll even be the C3 variant with the MK103 in the prop hub instead of the MK108... Even more yummy!

    Lets hope it'll be able to mount a 500kg bomb, as it does according to the german wikipedia article on it. It'd come in handy for for SAEs. Either way, with or without bomb, I've got a slot reserved for this bird in my german super-prop lineup. 4xMG151/20mm are insane already and the 103 horten mower added on top of that turns this plane into one of the best armed planes out there. If this plane has got the Fw D-ish flight performance I expect it to have it'll be a beast in the skies.

    Fun fact: There have even been considerations to add gun-pods to this beast. Because if there's one thing this plane lacks it's more Dakka

    We'll see. The german wiki page states this plane was able to mount a 500kg bomb. Here is a document which states the Ta 152C was able to mount various rocket setups in the last sentence of the page:

    Either way, as Streusel has said, It'll still be useful without guns. I'll probably cycle out of of my 109s or a Fw for it.
    By the way, the 103 motorcannon of the Ta 152C should be able to penetrate (almost?) most tanks we face in squadron by simply shooting at them during a steep dive at a 500m-1km distance.

    On a side note: The premium Do 335 uses 3 of these guns.

    I've almost spaded now (just a few thousand RP left on the gun upgrade). In Arcade this plane gets fairly good once all the performance upgrades have been unlocked. It's one of the best Bomber Hunters and BnZ props out there.

    Some tips remarks on this bird (I only play arcade):
    - I've got the impression that the actual climb rate exceeds what the stat chart suggest (21.7m/s) quite significantly. At least it's sufficient to intercept G8s climbing to space in the first wave.
    - One thing I haven't realized until I've almost until the very end of the grind was, that the Fuselage and Radiator upgrades have got a way stronger impact on the planes performance than on other planes (due to the very high drag reduction).
    - It's next to impossible to hit the target with all guns. And the 152s are the guns one wants to hit with.
    - the lead indicator needs to be lead differently than in most german fighters, as if refers to the 103 which has got a way higher projectile velocity than the 151.
    - I still wonder whether to use stealth/air target/ or ground target ammo for the 103... I've got the impression some players stay a bit more committed than usual during head-ons when I fly the Ta. Perhaps those 103 tracers which pass them several meters above their plane lures them into thinking they were safe while they fly into the wall of 20mm stealth projectiles... who knows.
    - the planes maneuverability is awful in stock. It's barely sufficient to perform minor BnZ-maneuver adjustments. This gets better once the plane is spaded. It still requires a more strict BnZ playstyle than the Fw 190s, but it's definitely possible to secure kills by briefly turning into a break maneuver of your target. Turn fights are still a no-go though.
    - Research order recommendations T1: 20mm Ammo -> Radiator upgrade -> T2: Airframe -> T3: 20mm weapon -> Engine -> T4: Engine Injection -> Fuselage -> Compressor -> Wing Repair -> Cover -> 30mm ammo -> 30mm weapon.
