[Top 3] War Thunder Best German Tier 4 Planes That Are Powerful

Slowly gettin’ up there!

We have discussed German planes before and they’re all about decent maneuverability and incredible firepower. Tier 4 planes are a bit better, in terms of speed, new upgrades, and firepower. I will mention my favorite three planes that I’ve had the most success with and I shall quickly mention their best features and what makes them simply the best. Let’s start:

3. Bf 109 K-4

BFF once more.

This feller is pretty decent if you’re flying it at a medium altitude. BF 109 can reach speeds of almost 760 km/h and still be relatively maneuvrable, even at that speed. It’s equipped with 30mm armaments that are capable of taking down the heaviest of bombers and other heavily-armored fighters. If that’s not enough, you can carry optional armaments. It’s even better when you realize that all of your armaments are located in the front of the nose, which makes the aiming extremely easy!

Why this plane is dope:

  • Nose of the plane is armed with weapons, easy to aim with
  • OP 30mm armaments, will rip through bombers and other heavily-armored bombers
  • Decent at medium altitude

2. Ta 152 C-3

King of armaments.

This guy has 5 cannons in total, all of which can inflict serious damage on bombers and heavily-armored fighters. While upgraded, this plane can reach the maximum speed of 759. Ta-152 is an excellent diver as well, as you can reach the speed of 900 km/h and still be able to fly, without the wings ripping apart. The engine and many other vital parts of the plane are mostly covered with thick sheets of metal, which should keep you alive for some time. Excellent for dogfighting, boom and zoom tactics, bomber-hunting and playing the objective. Have fun flying this guy!

Why this plane is badass:

  • 5 cannons that deal a lot of damage+plenty of ammunition
  • Durable, most important plane parts are covered with sheets of steel
  • Nose-mounted armaments, again, makes aiming a lot easier to aim with

1. Fw 190 D-9


This plane has to offer decent top speed, climb rate, and energy retention. It gets the job done if you’re planning to go out for some boom and zoom tactics, the armaments are rather powerful and they are stacked up with ammunition. If you want to use your bombs, you can drop even 500-kilogram bombs on ground targets. It’s recommended to not fly head-on into other planes as your engine is pretty fragile and easy to set on fire. Instead, climb altitude and perform boom and zoom tactics!

Why this plane is the best:

  • The speed is top-notch, and improves your chances of survival
  • Armaments are top notch, 2x20mm 151 MG cannons+2x13mm MG 131s+plenty of optional bombs
  • Plenty of ammunition, you don’t have to bother landing and reequiping too often
