Pros and cons

Pros:

  • All guns are centermounted, making them extremely deadly;
  • Two MG FF/M cannons which receive potent Minengeschoss rounds;
  • Very good bomber hunter;
  • Good defensive guns;
  • Maneuverable for a heavy fighter/bomber;
  • Can be used as both a bomber, ground attacker, and heavy fighter;
  • Very durable;
  • Good climb rate;
  • Can be used effectively as a boom and zoom fighter;
  • Gets the attacker spawn in AB;

Cons:

  • Relatively low rip speed somewhat limits effectiveness at boom and zoom;
  • Poor maneuverability compared to contemporary fighters;
  • Engines are easily damaged;
  • Cannot fly with one engine;
  • Prone to fires;
  • Slow;
  • Large target;
  • Locks up in dives, making it hard to pull out when getting near wing rip speed;
  • Although it can accomplish many roles, it excels at none of them;
  • No airbrakes, unlike the bomber variants of Ju 88 series.
