War Thunder Best Japan Planes By Tier​

We all know that the Japanese love to nose dive into the ground for honor and so you can do it as well with their aircraft. You can nose dive straight into the ground objectives or if you run out of ammo you can try to hit someone from behind or slam yourself into a heavy bomber.
When it comes to their planes they are mostly light aircraft. Because most of them were not expected to return after a mission. They would usually send whole platoons of aircraft to nose dive into the heavy aircraft carriers which most of the time was a successful mission.

Tier 1​

The best plane: J1N1
This is the most known Japanese aircraft. It’s a fighter aircraft with a twin engine. It’s meant to go fast and shoot fast. This aircraft carries a cannon and two machine guns in its arsenal. Every single weapon has a high firing range and you will run out of ammo quickly.

The second best plane: H8K2

    My sister's partner's son is obsessed with the movies and the shows, he's seen absolutely everything and raves about them. Showed me a couple of the movies, and they're definitely decent, but it feels like you're out of the loop if you haven't seen them and try to watch one at random. So need to sort of figure out an order and go with it at some point

    :) Glad I could help!
  • BigPete7978 @ BigPete7978:
    If you do end up checking any out I would love to hear what you think of some
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Most definitely, much appreciated :)
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Yep, will do!
  • BigPete7978 @ BigPete7978:
    Oh I just figured out you can have the chat in a separate pop up! Amazing!
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Yep, pop-up mode :)

    hi all

    Test to see if I can send a link in chat. Imgur: The magic of the Internet
  • A @ Augment:
    Oh hey it worked! This is my db schema so far
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    That's a good start!
  • A @ Augment:
    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?
  • A @ Augment:
    So that a user can only vote once per thread
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
  • A @ Augment:
    Wow what a fantastic resource. Thank you very much for the help
