General info

The I-153P Chaika in the garage.

The I-153P Chaika is a premium Rank II Soviet biplane with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB), 3.0 (RB), and 2.7 (SB). It was in the game since the start of the Open Beta Test prior to Update 1.29.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

There is one thing you need to know about the I-153; you will outturn everything it fights. Not a single plane the chaika fights will win against the I-153P in a turnfight. At a BR of 3.0, however, the Chaika's once moderate speed is now very bad. Nearly every plane will outspeed it; especially due to how the Chaika locks up at high speed, making it extremely difficult to maneuver at high speed. However, plenty of people underestimate the lowly chaika, and attempt to turn with it. If you notice someone is trying to turnfight you, simply outturn them and light them up with 2x20mm. However, bear in mind the Chaika is also more fragile than most planes in the game; a single 20mm shot on it is almost always death.

Vehicle characteristics

Tactics

Not only can the Chaika be played as a turnfighter, but it is relatively effective as a bomber hunter. Since it can climb somewhat well, it can get up to bomber altitude and make an effort to stop them. With 2x20mm, it has the ability to do significant damage to bombers. It also has 8 RS82 rockets, and when fired in a volley at a bomber, one of them is bound to make impact. All it takes is one to bring down even the mighty BV-238. As you face bombers, do NOT stay behind them for long. Their turrets will make mince-gull out of you.

Specific enemies worth noting

Counter-tactics

Should you be facing an I-153P, whatever you do, do not attempt to engage in a turnfight. The little biplane is more than capable of outturning even the A6M2 Reisen. Calmly deploy zoom and boom tactics against it; fly from an upper ground, light it up, and fly away. Try not to keep yourself level for too long, as there is a chance it will be able to hit you if you speed away. It has a moderate climbrate too and will climb after you with relative effectiveness if you fly back up after the "zoom".

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Low stall speed.
  • Good roll rate.
  • Great turn speed.
  • Great armament consisting of 2x20mm cannons.
  • Easily underestimated.

Cons:

  • Slow.
  • Very vulnerable against the guns it faces.
  • No direct fuel injection.
  • Poor energy retention.
  • Good climbrate against biplanes, but not against advanced monoplanes.
