Is it just me or does the B model of the Ki-84 seem super fast (when you're flying against it)
That little guy just seem to zip around the sky like crazy.

What were the RL differences between the A and the B?

A- has 7.7 machine guns in the cowling
B- 20mm HO cannons in the cowling

I'm not sure if there really is an engine/performance difference

A: 7.7s and 20mms
B: either all 20s, or 2 20s and 2 30s

...there followed one of those moments in history, the sort when the entire earth seemed to stop its spin, hearts paused, and even the people who'd been screaming their loyalty to a man already dead would remember only silence.

Essentially the only differences as far as I know are the weaponry. I don't think the engine or anything else was changed in any way.

The designers were aiming to develop the fighter into something that could intercept B-29's. Unlike Germanys successes against B-17 raids, the Japanese didn't have the time to adapt their fighters to the role. They never had an exceptional high altitude aircraft, most of them lacked armor, and most of them didn't have the punch. The B-29 was faster, tougher, and even better armed than the B-17 was overall.

Even so, incredible amounts of engineering no doubt went into fighters like the Frank and the George. The fact that they were able to do them at all says alot.

The Ki's have some problems in terms of modeling I think. In the latest 2.04 patch, virtually all aircraft have had their snap roll eliminated. What I mean by this is the instant acceleration to maximum roll in short order. Even the FW190 takes a bit to get up to speed when rolling. The Ki-84 didn't get this change. It snaps very quickly...and that actually seems to cause a problem with the netcode...it can't anticipate such a change so the plane flip flops all over the place. I think most people are aware of this having seen in mostly in previous patches.

On the other hand, its turn has decreased a bit I believe, and aside from its rediculously sensitive roll rate, its modeling is seemingly not too bad. Although the c type armament posses a problem to many people and it too often fills up servers...its popularity has declined.

The Japanese actually built the Raiden (Thunderbolt) with high-flying US bombers in mind...the design stressed climb and vertical manuvers...funny how its american namesake was also profiencient in the vertical...and also like the jug, THIS Thunderbolt had a very large and comfortable cockpit...especially for a Japanese type

why does the KI-c turn worst ? eheheh

they were lightened Hayates to make up for the heavier guns http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
