The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

This plane can be very powerful if you use boom and zoom against fighters, as it has a great armament of 2x 20mm cannons and 4x M2 brownings. In Tank and Ship Battles, this plane is also good, as it has the ability to carry lots of anti ground and ship payloads, like HVARs, 1000 lb bombs, Tiny Tims, and even a torpedo! (not all at once)
