General info

P-36G Hawk in the Garage.

The P-36G Hawk is a Rank I American fighter with a battle rating of 2.7 (AB/SB) and 2.3 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.35.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The P-36G performs much like its previous counterparts, as the increased armament does not degrade performance significantly. In addition, it retains the durability of its predecessors, something that would be passed onto its successor, the P-40E-1. This combination of firepower, durability and performance is a force to be reckoned with.

Vehicle characteristics

The P-36G Hawk is one of the best aircraft at Rank I. Armed with two nose-mounted 12.7mm machine guns and four 7.62mm machine guns in the wings, it certainly has firepower. While it may not have the notoriety of the I-16 and the LaGG-3, it is more than capable of challenging them on a more than even footing.

Tactics

Boom and Zoom tactics are a must; your maneuverability comes with speed, like the P-40E-1. To keep up speed, boom and zoom tactics work quite well. Boom and run tactics can also work, but such a proposition is risky due to the propensity for an aerial collision. It should be noted that even in an aerial collision, the P-36G has a reasonably high chance of survival, a testament to its durability.
