General info

The NC.900 in the garage.

The NC.900 is a gift Rank III French fighter with a battle rating of 5.3 (AB/SB) and 5.0 (RB). It was introduced during Update 1.75 "La Résistance" in the 2017 "Festive Quest" that took place between 22 December 2017 to 22 January 2018. It was obtained via completing 13 pilot’s Christmas toys.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The NC.900 is the French version of the Fw 190 A-8, featuring many characteristics as the late Focke-Wulf Anton fighters.

Vehicle characteristics

Tactics

Flying the NC.900 tends to be very defensive and relies on neutralizing an enemy's energy advantage and capitalizing on your own. Maneuvers that work well include the Split-S, Chandelle and anything that requires a high rate of roll. One of these its dive and roll in a single direction whilst applying rudder, this causes a very tight barrel roll that few aircraft can hope to gain a firing solution on. another way to clear your six is to pitch steeply up and roll over forcing an overshoot and potentially giving you a firing solution. It's possible to dismember superior aircraft simply because of the roll rate and firepower this plane possesses. If you are skilled enough to press for a gun solution when scissoring an enemy, you could be greatly rewarded. In summary, climb to the side, BnZ steadily, never get in a sustained turn fight, and use your roll rate to free yourself when cornered.

Specific enemies worth noting

The NC.900 sits at a high battle rating, close to the Bf 109 K-4s and La-7B-20s, both of which are vastly superior planes overall. It frequently faces Yak-9Ps, I-185s, La-7s/La-7Bs, Bf 109 G-14s, Bf 109 K-4s, G.56s and C.205s. Unfortunately, the NC.900 is by large worse than all of these planes, but it still possesses some unique advantages and if piloted correctly is capable of dishing out death. However, these advantages are quite predictable and easily nullified by an attentive opponent, and often require some skill to pull off effectively.

Counter-tactics

  • Well armored from the front.
  • Easy to land with mouse aim due to the higher stall speed.
  • Small and rugged air-frame.
  • Is sometimes viewed as a free kill, causing enemies to commit fatal mistakes.

Cons:

  • Poor acceleration.
  • Poor sustained turn.
  • Rate of climb is bad.
  • Poor at altitude performance.
  • One of the slowest Rank III fighters.
  • Very bricky to fly in general.
