Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Best 7.7 mm machine gun type for reserve planes
  • Good roll rate, better than any of the reserve biplanes from the other factions
  • Good turn rate, though worse than other reserve biplanes

Cons:

  • Performance scales poorly. Should generally be replaced as soon as more advanced planes become available.
  • Slow, but faster than other reserve biplanes
  • Engine and fuel fires spell certain death due to wooden/canvas construction and lack of self sealing fuel tanks.
  • Fragile, especially to HE rounds from cannons.
