Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Has a tail hook, can land on carriers if necessary.
  • High top speed (Can reach up to 1100 km/h).
  • Very effective air brakes.
  • Capable of carrying a vast array of the ordinance; 2 x 2000 lb bombs and up to 114 Hydra-70 unguided rockets.
  • First aircraft in game capable of carrying guided air to ground missiles.
  • Hydra rocket pods make the Fj-4B the most effective ground attack aircraft in the whole game at any tier.

Cons:

  • While it has a fast top speed, its acceleration is lacking, and can be easily caught by other 9.0 aircraft (barring the Tu-4).
  • 20 mm rotary cannons are functionally the same as the AN/M3 20 mm cannon found on all other US Navy jets and late-tier prop aircraft, even using the same ammo loadouts.
  • Quite sluggish, especially when carrying ordinance.
  • Generally struggles to compete with the absolute top tier jets such as the Mig 17, Cl-13A, F-86 F2 and Hunter F1.
