General info

The Su-2 M-82 in the garage.

The Su-2 M-82 is a Rank I Soviet attacker with a battle rating of 2.0 (AB) and 2.7 (RB/SB). It was in the game since the start of the Open Beta Test prior to Update 1.29.

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The Su-2, which is identical to the BB-1 apart from the designation, is one of the best multi-purpose aircraft in War Thunder. It is a light bomber, it is very capable off defending itself. Once fully upgraded, its climb rate and speed are unmatched by most if not all biplanes, and equal to most contemporary monoplanes.

The Su-2 is one of the most effective aircraft at its tier. Well, for one thing, most battles will incorporate soft targets such as AAA and Armored Cars. The BB-1 can be equipped with a variety of load-outs.

When in the bombing mode, come onto the target fast, diving from about 700 meters. After you have released your bombs, climb away. Following that, you can take the fight to enemy. This plane has great offensive capabilities, it's not recommended to dog fight since it is a light bomber and was not designed for that role; since it lacks a good turn rate. If your going offensive Boom and Zoom (BnZ) is effective, most biplanes have a climb rate which is equale of not greater to this plane. Therefore, they will be able to catch once you start climbing.

The durability of the Su-2 is impressive compared to its counterparts. It can take quite a lot of damage. It is advisable, to not perform any maneuvers above 500 km/h, or your wings will rip.

Vehicle characteristics

For a plane of its size, the Su-2's bomb load is impressive. The size and nature of the load (600 kg maximum, with less HE content than many loads, since smaller bombs can bear less explosives per total mass of the bomb than larger ones) mean that the Su-2 is best used for attacking tanks and pillboxes rather than bases. The 6x 100kg load excels at this role, having simultaneously good blast power and a benevolent amount of bombs to drop. The ideal load for base-bombing is the 2x 250 kg load since it has the most HE content. All the others prove a bit lacking in this department. Simultaneously, the 2x 250 kg load has much too low of an amount of bombs to be ideal efficiency-wise for bombing small targets. However, aiming these bombs is very easy due to their blast radius, so they are easier to use than the others.

Tactics

Cons:

  • Poor handling at moderate-high speeds
  • Poor durability at higher speeds
  • ShKAS MGs jam and overheat quickly
