[Top 5] War Thunder Best Rank 3 Planes That Are Excellent


Howdy, boys. I found a few cool planes I’d like you to see, I’ll quickly analyze them and explain why they’re the best in the third rank. I’ll include planes from USSR, USA, and Germany. Hope you enjoy and thank you for reading my article!

5. Yak-3


Yak is a soviet plane that’s known for its maneuverability. Excellent at low to medium altitudes and has a decent top speed. Yak-3 is the fastest Yak of them all, a superb dogfighter capable of outmaneuvering other silly pilots who want to test you - just make sure to not climb to high altitudes and don’t catch on fire!

Why this plane is awesome:

  • Maneuravble
  • Fast
  • Fun to play

4. P-47D-25 Thunderbolt

What a badass name!

This badass Yankee fighter is great at climbing to higher altitudes and “boom and zoom” tactics, with incredible speed above 6,000 meters and excellent firepower. You can even drop massive bombs on convoys, bunkers or bases. Even though this plane seems like a dream, it doesn’t do particularly well at low altitudes+speeds. But dope nonetheless!

Why this plane is awesome:

  • Massive firepower
  • Great speed+performance beyond 6,000m
  • Capable of escaping enemies easily

3. Fw 190 A-5/U2

The butcher-bird.

A strong plane that’s capable of withstanding heavy damage and has plenty of firepower to destroy multiple planes. If you’re a fan of bombs, worry not, this plane is also capable of carrying those. Despite the armaments, this plane is still capable of outmaneuvering other planes during dogfights!

Why this plane is awesome:

  • Dope energy retention
  • MG151 machine guns
  • Capable of dropping bombs

2. F4U-1C Corsair

Sexy thang!

This beauty is known for boom and zoom tactics, decent firepower capable of shredding other planes to bits if shot at correctly(cockpit, engine). The plane is also an escape artist when diving, although you might get shot down if you’re flying at low altitudes, as at that point diving is pretty much suicide. 

Why this plane is awesome:

  • Boom and zoom tactics are excellent for this plane
  • Great speed on all altitudes
  • Massive firepower, shreds everything to bits

1. Bf 109 G-2/trop

Keiser plane!

This kraut plane is probably one of the best rank III planes out there for me, I like it for its armaments and easy aiming. There are other positive things about this plane though, such as the climb rate on all altitudes, stall fighting, and a durable airframe that is capable of enduring high speeds. 

Why this plane is the best:

  • Easy to aim
  • Powerful weaponry
  • Hard to catch on fire
