    Default The Ki200 Shushi must be really bad...

    My first encounters with the Ki200s. I thought they would be similar to my nemesis, the He163, but nope, I just shot 3 down.

    I've seen very few experienced pilots on those rockets, most of the pilots try to fly like it was a jet or something.

    Yeah, that could be the case. Either way, the He163 is just so much deadlier (in my sad experience)

    Could be because the He163 has twice the full load.

    More time to maneuver and prepare for a run, or to try and get in another. The three minutes of fuel in the Ki-200 I don't think gives you enough time (at least in RB) to do anything but get to the enemy. Have to engage the first available target because you don't have enough fuel to be picky.

    Disclaimer: I have never flown the rockets in any game mode, because they look surprisingly like bigger death traps than the M3 Lee.

    you guys talking about the He162 or the Me163 o.o

    btw the shushi has 4 mins of fuel and the 163 has 6 (actually 4:17 and 6:43)

    Wooops, I was talking about the Me163, that little bugger.

    The He162 is also very annoying, but the Me163 is scary D:<

    i have to admit though when fighting experienced KI-200 pilots they are quite as deadly

    I flew the ME 163 this weekend and really had a lot of fun with it.

    I like the way it flys and it's deadly. Watching my fuel, planning an attack, coasting... plus landing makes this my favorite non-prop plane! (at the moment)

    Getting higher up the ranks gives more risk of encountering those buggers when you are still flying your piston fighter...
    On the other hand it gives you the opportunity to kill them... So yesterday I killed a KI-200, 2 Mig-9's & a Me 262 with my Spit / Typhoon planes.

    My favorite round ever involved getting a rocket kill on a sabre that though he would B&Z my chaika.

    He thought that until he missed (I saw him coming and juked, did a snap roll to dodge him will putting my nose back on his flight path) and very shortly after, air bursting rockets took out his pilot.
