Tactics

The best way to take down an enemy is to turn fight them, the I-15 series is excels at it. Almost every plane you are going to be facing can't out-turn you unless they are a great pilot, it also has an open cockpit. Aim for the pilot and don't bother chasing away an enemy because, their plane is most likely faster and you don't want to waste time chasing them. Don't get tunnel vision, although your plane can out-turn almost every plane, it's still relatively weak lacking armor and protection for the pilot. Avoid bombers as any of their guns can destroy your vehicle and can kill your pilot with relative ease.

Specific enemies worth noting

The Ki-10's can out-turn this plane, but they can't out run it. Considering the battle rating of this plane, a lot of new players are flying so they most likely don't use rudder, if you use your rudder you can out turn the Ki-10
