Tactics

The H-75 is an all-round very effective fighter in War Thunder. It has an excellent turn rate and its top speed of 560 km/h at low altitude is very impressive, as it can outrun most of its competitors. Its fiercest opponent is the Bf 109, against which it loses most notably in the climbing department. To survive against these in Realistic Battles and Simulator Battles, it is important not to use WEP outside of combat, as whereas WEP itself is infinite, the plane's cooling capacity is not – attentive pilots will notice that it decreases with time if they push WEP too hard — at the beginning of a fly out, the H-75 A-1's engine will only show signs of overheating at 235ºC(455ºF), whereas after pushing WEP too hard, the engine will begin to struggle at 225ºC. Engine management is as such one of the crucial skills for mastering this plane. With the engine weakened from overheating, a player will find it hard to beat a Bf 109 if in an energy disadvantage. With a healthier engine, the pilot can keep the engine roaring at full power so as to endure sustained maneuvering without eventually stalling and dropping like a rotten apple from a tree.

Its quick firing streams of low-calibre bullets are not to be underestimated, especially given the agility of the plane, as it is easy to get critical bursts of bullets into vital parts of the enemy's vehicle. In general, what it can't outrun it can out-turn, which means that it will be very hard for enemies to shake it off once it gets on their tail. Do mind that you do not engage fighters head-on, as your wing-mounted, low calibre weapons aren't well suited for that sort of engagement. Exceptions include particularly vulnerable and poorly armed fighers, such as most Biplanes. With bombers, the story is different, engaging them head-on and firing at the cockpit is a good way to score a quick kill by knocking out their pilot(s). That it can out-turn many planes is not an excuse to engage in fancy maneuvers whenever the chance presents itself — even the best turner will tire itself out and become easy prey if it doesn't watch its speed and altitude. Be clever with who you engage — if faced with two well turning fighters like the CR.42 Falco and one fast fighter like the He 100 D-1, engage the faster one first so that you don't end up sandwiched between an aircraft that can out-turn you and an aircraft that can outrun you. This is of course not a rule set in stone, but these are the decisions you should be consciously assessing before engaging. If you manage to think through these decisions rationally and cool-headedly (who to engage, climbing, diving, or going in a straight line, etc.) you will see how great the potential of this aircraft is.

Its climbing disadvantage versus aircraft such as the Bf 109 mean that the Hawk will be relentlessly bullied by those aircraft if it finds itself alone and in an energy disadvantage (see Energy fighting) until it drops from the sky. As such, be wary of your teammates' whereabouts and watch their backs. Not only is it nicer to be a team player, it will keep you alive longer and improve your chances of winning the match (in turn earning you a larger Research points reward).
