After some test, I realise I was wrong, the accuracy of the tripolsten did not do what I thought it would. Also have not seen them kill planes reliably.

It might be time to post the replays, OP?

From my experience against them I believe they still need nerfs.

Highlights at 22 and 48 min.

Planes downed almost instantly with very little suppression taken.

I agree that the Tri-Polsten continues to be an outlier. Though I would like to have some 2-Vet Flak-Vierlings to compare them with (I don't think there are any, right?).

Anecdotally:

Yesterday I had a 4vs4 where I spent 180$ on 2xDouble-Vet-Cmp-Trip-Polsten and a Dingo, which together shot down like 6 or 7 planes and made however many evac almost instantly. The only micro needed was moving them a bit together from time to time to avoid arty, which was easy as they are so mobile (though my opponent admittedly didn't do a good job at harrassing). And I don't think they ran out of ammo before the match was over, with their solid 2,7 minutes supply of ammo, which is double-great since planes die so fast, so it doesnt have to fire continiously like e.g. 37mm or Flak 88 (or flak36 20mm hahahaha).

BF109 go down in what feelt like 2-3 seconds. A HS-129 doing an attempted strafing run and evacing over them was doomed.

Pricewise that group was about the same like a Flak 88 and a single 20mm, a group that maybe covers a larger area, but never kills anything and only makes planes evac after 6+ seconds earliest, while being extremely vulnerable to arty due to slow movement.
