Tips

Despite popular believe, the La-7 has same damage output as the Focke-Wulff Fw-190 D9, and with worse performance in almost every aspect, the La-7 is objectively worse in dogfighting no matter the situation. A Fw 190 can literally spin in circle and La-7 can do nothing about it be it 1v1 or group fight. However as all the damage comes from cannons, the La-7 does about 66% more damage against armored target compared to Fw 190, and about infinite% more than P-51D Mustang. Sadly since Armor-Piecing ammo loses damage and penetration with range, the benefit is easily lesser than one might think.
