General info

The M.D.450B Ouragan in the garage.

The M.D.450B Ouragan is a Rank V French jet fighter with a battle rating of 7.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France".

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The M.D.450B Ouragan is a French jet fighter located at the fighter line in the French tech tree at a battle rating of 8.0. It is the first unlockable jet as you go down the Fighter line in the French tech tree. The main role of the Ouragan is the Fighter role. Avoid loading any secondary loadout on it as ground pounding at the start of jet matches in Air RB is a bad idea.

Vehicle characteristics

The M.D.450B's performance when spaded is good overall. Good maneuverability, good roll rate, good acceleration and good climb rate. When spaded, the aircraft can be a bit lackluster especially when facing top tier jets. Still, despite the stock performance, it's capable of fighting 7.0 - 8.0 aircraft when downtiered regardless of the Ouragan's state in modifications researched if played well.

Tactics

The M.D.450B Ouragan is mainly a BnZ aircraft. It retains in vertical turns and BnZ maneuvers well. When you takeoff, gain speed. After gaining speed, you side-climb up to 2500 - 3000 meters then head to the center. When you're finally in the center, you've already gained speed by accelerating. Then, you commence BnZ tactics. Dive, engage, zoom up to 2500 - 3000 meters, loop around, look for a suitable target, rinse and repeat. If you find yourself in a bad situation where you can't use BnZ tactics, then your last resort would be turning.

Specific enemies worth noting

Top tier jets are your main concern in the Ouragan (MiG-15bis, MiG-17, CL-13 etc). They willl outclimb, outaccelerate, outspeed and outdive you. When they are flown correctly, you stand no chance, however if they decide to dogfight you have the upper hand as the Ouragan's maneuverability is superior to theirs. Rocket-powered Me 262s (Me 262 C-2b and Me 262 C-1a) and F-84Gs are tough opponents too; but the Ouragan can manage itself against them.

Counter-tactics

Top tier jets will most likely BnZ and energy fight you as long as the pilots behind them know what they're doing and the same goes to the Me 262 Cs and F-84Gs. Against top tier jets, most of the time you'll be in the defensive role. Rolling and using your elevators to make them overshoot and attempt reversals is your best bet in that case (that is of course they know how to bnz and energy fight, if they dogfight you you have the upper hand).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good maneuverability
  • Good roll rate
  • Good acceleration for an 8.0 jet (spaded)
  • Good climb rate (spaded)
  • Nose-mounted guns
  • Doesn't compress much
  • Stable aircraft
  • Downtiered often, very capable aircraft against 7.0 - 8.0 enemies
  • Spaded flight performance is good
  • Strong and effective flaps
  • M50 20 mm cannons become good with "Air Targets" belts

Cons:

  • BR 8.0 means it faces top tier jets (MiG-15bis, MiG-17, CL-13A etc) that outclass it in most important aspects of flying
  • Stock performance is "meh"
  • M50 20mm cannons tend to "spark" and not do enough damage especially with "Default" belts
  • Long queue times
