    @ReinMcDeer yeah, people complain about the turn time on the planes, but I can out turn yaks with ease with a Corsair using flaps, and once the target is in front of you, you hold the trigger down for one second and they explode

    @Directbean724 @IMFLYINHERE War thunder low tier USA is stacked
    SBD-3 w/ DGP-1 gunpods = 6x 50 cal at BR 1.7, which can be reduced to 1.3 in air AB
    You can literally get a double ace every match without even trying very hard
    The only reason Gaijin hasn't uptiered it yet is because not a lot of people know about this exploit

    Nicely done. Plus this plane was one of the understated heroes of the 2nd world war. It was the best counter to submarines that the allies possessed.
