War Thunder Best China Planes By Tier

China numba one!

Ah, the casual China man. Did you know when a China man is born a new rice field is planted? That’s a known fact in the universe. But also what might be an unknown fact is that their airplanes are well made and they last long except when they sell it to the other person then they fall apart. 

Their aircraft have a vast range of different capabilities. From heavy bombers to regular fighters that a strong man could lift. They knew how to design their aircraft and their engineers put up a lot of work into it. If you love playing this faction I’ll let you know that I’ll be listing two of the best airplanes from the respective tier so that way I’m not talking about the China man for a whole week. 

Tier 1

The best plane:  Ki-27 otsu (China)

Originally a Japanese fighter plane which the China men took and upgraded to fit their needs. This airplane has no armor but what it lacks in defense makes up in maneuverability. Also, a downside to it is that the fuel tank is not self-sealing so if it gets shot you’re done for.

The second best plane: A-29 

The regular heavy bomber aircraft and the first of its kind to be made in China. It was built on the most fertilized rice field and many people love it. It does its objective correctly and that objective is dropping bombs on people and removing them from existence.

Tier 2

The best plane:  H-81A-2

One of the coolest designs of airplanes in the game has to be this one. The shark mouth adds to the personality of the aircraft. Unlike the Ki planes, this one has reinforced steel plating and it is protected from all sides, mainly the pilot. It also carries 6 x Browning machine guns.

The second best plane: Ki-61-I otsu (China) 

After they realized the potential of the Ki-27 planes they took that design and made it their own. They upgraded this airplane fully and stacked it with the best gear possible. This airplane was often used during night missions as it was fast and could do the objective quickly.

Tier 3

The best plane:  Mosquito FB.Mk.26 

I’m guessing the reason why it’s called the mosquito is that it’s annoying to deal with and hard to catch in the act. It’s also a great aircraft that can quickly deal with bombers. There we go, we found out why it is called mosquito. Because it sucks the life out of the players who love to play bombers.

The second best plane: PB4Y-2 (China)

The China man took another great aircraft from another faction and upgraded it to suit their needs in the war. This time they took a bomber aircraft and gave it more explosives and reinforced the steel platings so that it doesn’t get shot down quickly.

Tier 4

The best plane:  P-51K 

Seems like the Americans already started making deals with the Chinese as they sold them their iconic aircraft. This aircraft has a mustang engine and a mustang mark all over it but the Chinese took it and gave it a few of their special touches. Instead of fuel, they exchanged it for liquid rice. The first ever aircraft to be powered by that.

The second best plane: Tu-2S-44

These Chinese people love their heavy bombers. Maybe because it can carry a huge amount of rice. From the previous version, this one gets an upgraded steel plating all over the aircraft, and because of that, it suffers in speed. But thanks to that it’s hard to take out and it would take a few fighter jets to take this bad boy off the sky.

Tier 5

The best plane:  H-5

The last heavy rice carrier was produced by the China man. The people who created this heavy bomber surely went all out. It carries the most amount of explosives that any heavy bomber can. It is armored to the teeth and carries 2 x NR-23 cannons that are nose-mounted. Yes, those cannons can shred anything that comes in contact with them if the other person manages to catch them.

The second best plane: J-4 

The first jet fighter that has bulletproof glass for its pilot. It’s not easy taking this bad boy down as it’s also got reinforced steel platings around its fuel tank. It’s a great opponent to be going against and people who love flying this will not be disappointed.

Tier 6

The best plane:  J-7II

After the end of the Korean war, several countries came out with brand new spanking designs. The Americans came out with the “Starfighter” and the Europeans Mirage F-1. Because the China man didn’t want to feel left out they came out with the J-7II which supports speeds up to 2.262 km/h and can achieve 16 kilometers of altitude. That’s pretty damn insane.

The second best plane: Q-5A 

A great striker aircraft that comes with flares, a radar, and a few 130 mm high explosive rockets. This guy can be used against ground-themed objectives and is even great when going against other pilots in dog fights.

Tier 7

The best plane:  J-8B

An astonishing battle rating of 11.3 that it deserves. The aircraft comes equipped with top-of-the-line steel platings all over the cockpit and the fuel tanks. It carries high explosive rockets as the offensive start and for the defense, it has countermeasures like flares or the opportunity to eject the pilot if the plane starts going down.

The second best plane: F-5E (China)

That’s the name of this aircraft or the AIDC which almost sounds like aids. This is a strengthened version of its predecessors that comes equipped with top-of-the-line technology and a lot of countermeasures that can be dispatched at any moment if anyone gets locked onto you.
