General info

The P.108A serie 2 in the Garage.

The Piaggio P.108A serie 2 (A for Artiglieri or Artillery) is a Rank IV Italian attacker with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB), 3.3 (RB), and 3.0 (SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica". It features a 102 mm cannon in its fuselage, one of the largest armament placed onto an aircraft.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The P.108 serie 2 is your normal P.108, but with a 102 mm anti-shipping gun containing 50 rounds. In saying that, your basically an over sized HS 129 or PBJ-H1. The main reason for not seeing the aircraft on air AB, Rb or even Sim is due to the fact the plane is demanding on takeoff due to its low horsepower engines and will not take off if combat flaps or take-off flaps are down (if you don't, its going to be quite hard to take off). The defensive weaponry is decent for its battle rating but will not survive if it get up tiered to 4.3.

Vehicle characteristics

The Piaggio P.108A Serie 2 is a 4 engine attacker. Despite being a attacker the 102mm cannon is relatively inaccurate which means the targets that suits this plane the best is usually stationary targets that the 102mm cannon can penetrate and destroy. The plane's defensive firepower is relatively poor and you should try to avoid enemy planes as much as possible. If a enemy plane is lining up to attack you from the front, try to swing your plane and give him the tail of the plane so your gunners can shoot back at the enemy aircraft.

Tactics

Stay low and do not go above 1900 m and speed is key try to maintain a speed of close to 200 km/h as that gives you wiggle room as your stall speed is 155 km/h despite the massive weight.

  • Relatively Weak Defensive armament.
  • Head on attacks are usually fatal for this plane.
  • Massive Target.

Performance

P.108A serie 2/Horsepower graph

Modules and improvements

  1. The first tier modifications to be unlocked should be Radiator and Fuselage repair then the 7.7 machine gun belts. This is so you can improve the poor performance of the plane. The belts should be last as no matter what the defensive firepower of the plane with or with out the belts would still remain poor.
  2. The second tier upgrades should start with the airframe so your plane is a bit more durable. Then get the 7.7 new turret and 102mm cannon for increase in firepower and defensive armament. Finally go get the compressor.
  3. The Third tier modifications should start of with the engine, then unlock the wing repairs. Last of all unlock the 12.7 belts.
  4. The fourth tier modification should start of with the new 12.7s machine gun turrets then cover. And your last two modification should be engine injection and new 102mm cannon.
