I would have played 1943 if it was actually released for PC(and also not insanely buggy)

I've tried few time with a KB and its not easy to control.
I suck with jets, but after a bit of practice I'm able to fly helis beautifully with the keyboard.

Anyone else find jets fun, but kind of pointless?

Sure I can rack up some kills, but I always feel like I'm doing far less for my team than I could be in a heli/tank. At least with those items I can clear a flag AND cap it too.

It's nice to have them, but they seem to be held back with the small maps and tightly located flags.

I've been in some games with the excellent jet drivers. They can make life very difficult for people on the ground. But yes, I agree. A skilled driver and gunner in the attach helicopter is a far more serious threat for people on the ground than the jets are.

That being said, I think I've encountered a few jets that have bombs now, so that must be one of the unlocks. THAT will make life miserable for anyone in a tank!

Regarding jets:
I use them lots and find them very effective, though you do need certain unlocks (rockets / guided missile) to get to that point.

If my team is spotting enemy armour I can at least disable it if not kill it outright within seconds using rockets or guided missile.
If it's rush, the cannon of the A-10 or the Russian variant (SU-35?) can disable/kill a vehicle in one burst.

As for controlling them, I started with mouse/keyboard, then bought a joystick (Thrustmaster T.16000M) and have now reverted back to mouse/keyboard after watching some fantastic youtube vids of how to effectively use mouse/kb in jets.
I just don't find that the joystick is sensitive enough to pull off the fast turns that you can do with mouse/kb (though maybe I just need more practice)

I use KB and mouse, once you get a hang of it its easy. I fly at ground level all the time in the chopper to avoid missiles and such
