I know this is off topic but... does the X-02 use F100-PW229 engines?

Balance Tab also seems to stop it from over-rolling, which is my #1 gripe with it.

Sold it and bought the X-02 and F-22 with that money :rolleyes:

Goddamn, stop hating on one plane, just fly whatever suits you. Personally, I think the Forneus kicks major ass.

GAF-1 flying dick is the most strange superplane in any AC. For those who use this damn plane, please forget it and use a XFA-27

lol! at some of the responses here.

Yeah I stopped using Varcolac after unlocking the the blue color with the teeth paintjob.
It looks, too elongated for my type.

I just sold it and bought Fenrir and X-02 and I'm saving the rest for Falken.

The ICRM seems useful, I never really used it.

Ah, I just saw it a while ago when I unlocked it, but never bought it. Looks like I did the right choice.

You did not.
The IRCM is near useless while playing solo, but in VS it can be a life saver. It essentially diverts any incoming missile, and I don't think I need to tell you how useful that can be.
Not a lot of fighters get it, but it's a very viable option for those who do.

Also, comments in the form of "XXX is fail" should be payed as much attention as a screaming ant in the Superdome.

Why the hateroade? Though to be truthful, not the best superplane they've created.

Still a damn shame though the XFA-27 doesn't seem to get the Scarface MBS anymore. =/

As for the Varcolac, it was kinda fun to fly, but I preferred using a tuned YF-23 instead >_>

I guess I should give Varcolac a try in Versus then =).

I feel the YF-23 is underused. It's an awesome jet, tuned with a C-Cycle Engine.

IMO the Color 05 is an awesome paintjob that has webs.

Not sure about VS, but in Campaign co-ops I actually see the '23 more often than the '22, which I found quite surprising...sure it gets ODMMs and the '22 doesn't, but still...

The red web is pretty neat, but I fly Wizard paint the most.

As for the actual Varcolac...the haters may be interested in this:

NO NO NO

I talked about the IRCM's capabilites only, not the Varcolac.
Please, I ask you, do not become yet another player using non-real fighters in VS. It is a lack of respect for all others.

I did try it in VS with the S-32. It was quite fun.

Varcolac without the GAF-1 Type AA Avionics is pretty much useless in my opinion, the thing is pretty sluggish without it. (you also get to use the full potential of its guns without much effort because of the auto-aim)

Not Romanian, Possibly American since it's made for the Golden Axe Plan.

Giant Romanian dick plane.

Hmm...Rodd's got a point there since

SPOILERS if anyone cares

























by the time the GA Plan was put into effect, the Valahia, having betrayed Olivieri, were out of the equation. So there's the possibility of no Romanian influence on the craft, just American or that of whoever designed it.

Sulejmani's Varcolac was so damn hard to take down. I had to use the YF-23A to blow him up.
