Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very similar play style to the B-18 Bolo. The dorsal and frontal turrets seemed to have swapped places, meaning turret in front and nest in back.
  • The bombload is more than capable of leveling bases and vehicle formations. A single 2000 lb bomb can net you 850+ points in a match from a good run.
  • The frontal gunner, while only having a .30 cal, can be used as a manual weapon if you keep the front of the plane on an enemies tail.
  • Although being a premium, it is a less well known plane, leading to some confusion on the plane.Can be very helpful in battles.

Despite its pre-war design, it easily handles damage and fires can dealt with easily.

  • While having limited fire arcs on the rear turrets, they are well protected and regularly surprise enemies that don't know they're there.

Cons:

  • Like with all American bombers, it is a large target. An altitude advantage can help alleviate some problems with enemy fighters.
  • Despite the high speed, it can easily be caught up to by more advanced Rank I aircraft, such as the Soviet Yakolev and Lavochkin aircraft.
  • Unlike its younger brother, the B-18, the B-10s rear gunners have a slightly restricted field of view, giving a sort of blind spot to the gunners.
