Update 2.1.24 introduces a brand-new reward aircraft:
The Martin-Baker MB 5 was the result of a program ordered by the British Air Ministry to develop a replacement fighter for the Spitfire and Hurricane. It was expected to be capable of flying faster than 400 miles per hour and be well armed to serve in a variety of combat roles. Designed from the ground up, the MB 5 featured a new Rolls-Royce Griffon engine, a contra-rotating propeller scheme, and four wing-mounted 20 mm Hispano autocannons. A prototype was built in 1944, and test pilots considered it superior to the Supermarine Spitfire. Unfortunately, it was not ready for mass production quickly enough before the Air Ministry's focus shifted towards jet-powered aircraft, and the project was eventually abandoned.
In World of Warplanes, the Martin-Baker MB 5 is a fast and maneuverable fighter with a characteristically easy-to-use medium-range autocannons. It has a significant speed advantage over its Spitfire counterparts at Tier VII, which allows it to dictate the terms of engagement to a wider score of enemies. Its autocannons remain characteristically comfortable to use in close-range dogfights and medium-range combat, boasting good damage, range, rate of fire, and accuracy. However, the Martin-Baker MB 5 will require a bit more care and piloting skill from the player to fully reveal its combat potential, as, being a prototype, it is more prone to critical damage and fires.
