also it's the only stationary after the AA to be able turning around 360

Huh. I did not realize that actually. They have been placed so well in this game that each time I needed to use one I barely had to turn them much at all.

Yes, the dog fighter load out is quite inferior, but the repair special ability is extremely nice. You really can't focus the ground with it, and you are still better off using other load outs when engaging other aircraft. It has a small niche in the pub setting that is not commonly seen.

However, I personally love the trench fighter load out, as it gives me the benefit of spotting ground troops and engaging infantry with reliable damage, but also having the benefits of the fighter's maneuverability in the sky. You can hold your own quite well with other aircraft, and can slowly kill attack planes and bombers. Note, you can't be directly behind those two, as might be when engaging a fighter, but you can still make several passes around them while dropping some nice meaty damage.

On a side note, I would like to ask this forum if you all have noticed with the two other fighter load outs, your special ability can repair you. This happens ever so often when I use the abilities, but I am not able to confirm when it will actually repair.

Trench Fighter is great, I actually managed to kill an AA that kept trying to kill me but getting out of his sight, then back in and dropping my nails on him before he could react. Also, the slight zoom on the machine guns works far better for me than the full scope view on the dogfighter, which is disorienting and slows your controls.

I've noticed using almost all the fighters with bomber killer's ability speed boost, I also received the 30 hp insta repair. I know the central powers planes all have this, whilst some allied fighter planes, like the sopwith camel, do not have it.

I had assumed it was intentional as there are more fighters that have it, and like 1 or 2 that don't.

I have yet to experience this whole "bomber is a player controlled AC130" phenomena. Mostly I see it get 1-2 kills and then get shot down in some generally hilarious way.

I've killed bombers with the tank derp cannons far more than I've ever been killed by one. I don't think I've ever even lost a tank to a bomber.

Airpower in general seems a far secondary concern than the assault hordes with rocket guns.

Wait until you destroy a Bomber with the Fortress Gun. Nothing is more satisfying. Haha.

So it kills maybe 4 guys before someone mows it down with SAA.

More like 5
It says no to fighters

The front gun has explodey rounds, so the front gunner is like a gunner on the AC-130.
The tail gunner shreds any aircraft the doesn't do high burst when the come in for a pass.
It can fly high enough to bomb SAA without too much return fire.
