NEW PLANE SURVEY - WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?

Nothing beats a cool new plane with cutting edge performance ratings.  I've compiled a wish list of new planes for you to vote on (place your vote on the right).  Maybe Z2Live will take note.  (feel free to write in your own idea as a comment).  Enjoy!



Final Tally in Poll:




1.  F-117 Nighthawk - aka, the Woblin Goblin:   How about a TRUE stealth plane with like 90% stealth rating and 2 bisno missiles (better make them count)?
2.  SR-71 Blackbird - yeah it was a reconnaissance jet, but it was just so friggin fast!  You could make it agility with like 100% speed increase and no other advantages.
3.  The classic F-104 Starfighter from the 60's - ahead of its time - would be a good agility addition
4.  First plane to break the sound barrier - the X-1.  Relive Chuck Yeagers thrill ride, complete with instability and turbulence!
5.  X-15:  Mach 6.7 to the edge of outer space - this X plane rocked!  You could make it 1000% speed and 0% armor :-)
6.  B-2 Bomber - if batman had a plane, it would be this.  Weapons class all the way with high stealth and high missile damage
7.  The Wright Brothers Flyer - started it all (ok, maybe make it a low end defense class or throw it into a campaign mission as a joke)

8.  Unmanned Stealth Drones - work these into the game somehow - maybe in new campaigns

9.  Star Wars X-Wing Fighter - they really do exist as proof in this super secret, never released photo!  Laser fire beats cannons any day.

    1. i would want stealth drones in metalstorm wingman

      Delete
    2. the stealth drone should have a missile tracking of 11% missile reload of 14% armor of 12% and agility of 10%.the price of the plane should be 205 coins

      Delete
    3. A plane like the one you described should cost at least 430 coins... Take as example the Achilles.

    4. They should make f15E strike eagle.
      Super weapons class- damage 20 missile reload 20 armor regen 20 lock range 20

  2. Graet ideas I will post my list tonight!

  3. Problem with this list is that most of the planes listed aren't fighters (B-2, F-117, etc.). I always thought Z2 bringing in the A-10 as an air to air fighter was a bit of a stupid idea. The X-wing idea is a bit too fanciful for an otherwise contemporary game. If they bring in the X-wing why don't we bring in the Enterprise while we are at it?

    There are some great planes still missing. I heard that they will bring in the J-20 as Jadefist but other planes I would recommend include:

    1. Mirage 2000
    2. Mirage F-1
    3. Mig 1.44
    4. Harrier jump jet (I know they are technically attack planes but they have been used, very effectively, as air to air platforms in the Falkland war).
    5. Mig-25/Mig-31 (possible idea for a very fast 20% speed defence class?)
    6. Mitsubishi F-2
    7. F-CK-1 Chingkuo
    8. JF-17 & LCA (for South Asian players).
    9. YF-12 (The interceptor version of the famed SR-71)
    10. YF-23 Black Widow
    11. YF-32

    1. You took a lot from HAWX.

  4. I agree with [SV Cadet]sangongchuangnu.
    -- F-117 even not a supersonic plane - its max speed is Mach 0,92. It could be added as a stealthy defence class, but not with 90% stealth - its invisibility is highly overestimated.
    -- Blackbird, X-1 and X-15 cant maneur. All they can is fly high and quick. Very interesting targets for upcoming missions.
    -- B-2 Spirit along with B1-B Lancer, Tu-95 Bear and Tu-160 Blackjack could be invincible bosses in missions, or in survival (after each fifth wave for example).
    -- But Starfighter is a great idea! Could be quick agility plane with bonus to acceleration, but with only 5% to agility (or even without one).

    I want to see in MSW next planes:
    - YF-23 Black Widow,
    - Su-29 Frogfoot - it's Russian A-10,
    - Su-34 fullback,
    - Su-30MKI.

    But it looks like the next new plane will be Copperhead's Flanker or reskinned Viper - it looks like Z2 do not want to work hard, especially on plane modelling.

    1. The bomber boss idea sounds interesting... I think Z2 could market interceptor type planes that are great gunning them down but aren't as good in versus matches... That'll appeal to the purists who need to finish everything in a game.

  5. How about the Firefox from the movie of the same name? I believe they called it a Mig-31, but it looks nothing like the actual plane.

    Loved that plane!

  6. Reskinned Viper - blue angels?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Bobcat and Cyclone variants with automatic wing sweep:
    Full forward wings, when going slow, full aft swept at high speeds
    (move wings instead of airbrakes).

    1. Animating it would be extra work for Z2 though... which is why I don't think this cool idea will be implemented in the near future.

      What ticks me off the most is that the arbiter, spectre, thresher, etc., which are stealth aircrafts with weaponsbays, still mount the missiles on their wings... What a great way to compromise the RCS.

    2. Hell yeah - it ticks me off too. I also just do not understand, why flying with brakes on do not exhaust energy. For real planes it is the most energy consuming maneur, almost always performing with afterburn and is one of the most difficult for pilots.
      Exhausting energy on slow flight will make versus matches much more interesting tactically. And even will make defence class fighters very good for dogfight and for maneuring. Furthermore, bonus to energy will become REALLY sufficient.

    3. Yeah that would be cool! I'm tired of my dragon's back wing sweep and would love to see this!

  8. Even the P-79 Spectre seems to be discontinued, I would like to see a new aircraft based on the Sukhoi PAK FA T-50 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_PAK_FA
    When entering service, this plane will be the most modern in the russian air force and the natural counterpart of the F-22 Raptor (here the Thresher).

    It has the look to make up for a new high-end defense class fighter, and as such should be given characteristics to successfully battle the Thresher in versus mode.

    1. Metalstorm has this plane already, the P-79 Spectre. It hasn't been offered for sale in some time though. You can see it in the "Other Agility Class Planes" section of this blog.

  10. BLUE ANGELS LIMITED EDITION AGILITY JET!!!!!!!

  11. What about propeller planes? 4 engined planes? Z2 could do some such as:
    P-51 Mustang with 4 wing cannons
    B-52 bomber with crappy cannon but high missile strength
    MiG-17 turboprop
    Supermarine Spitfire?
    Get creatuve peoples!!!

  15. The sr-71 blackbird is better than all of them

    1. I have it and it is SHIT. Sure, it does great shitload of damage, but it's impossible to maneuver.

  21. Either the mig 39 or the YF-23 black widow

  22. Raptor. Definitely the raptor.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree, the sky demon is kinda impossible to Maneuver... Does helluh damage though-plus it looks cool!

  24. i think there should be a x wing in the game that you can buy for 205 coins

    ReplyDelete
  25. they should make a plane called the barack obama

    ReplyDelete
  26. personally i would love to see the f-104 starfighter in the game. that's quite a popular old plane, but i think that they should really add an even older plane. the ME-262. that would be awesome. but what i would really like to see a plane from WW2 that never flew. the Lockheed L-133. it was supposed to be America's first jet fighter and it really looks modern and baddas. for those of you that don't know the plane check out a pic or two in google
