The Tempest Mk V in the garage.

The Tempest Mk V is a Rank IV British fighter with a battle rating of 6.0 (AB/SB) and 5.7 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.37.

Tactics

Climb with your team as high as you can muster (<4000m) and proceed to feast on anything the Spitfires above drop from their clouds. (Blue) speed is life and should never be wasted. This is the way of the Tempest in Realistic battles.

The Tempest Mk. V excels at low to medium altitude battles, performing both as a Boom'n'Zoomer, ground attacker or energy fighter. To efficiently utilize it's full engine power, do not get above 6000m or 19000ft, as the engine power drops significantly beyond that point. However, due to the supercharged engine, it outperforms aircraft like the Fw 190 D-9 by far at high altitudes (over 7600m or 25000ft), but gets obliterated by Ta 152Hs and some Bf 109 models, such as the K-4s and G-10s. To counter the BF109K-4, I quote the pilot Pierre Clostermann:

"Tempest V. Messerschmitts: I kept on reminding my pilots to keep their speed above 300 m.p.h., for "109's" could turn better than we could at low speed, and you had to watch out for the 30 mm. cannon in their propeller - it didn't give you a second chance. The best technique was to do a spiral dive, work up to a speed of 450 m.p.h., do a straight climb and then start all over again. The "109's" on the other hand, knowing that we dived faster than they did, tried to get us up to 16,000 feet, where our Tempests were heavy and our engines sluggish."1

In arcade battles, just stick with WEP on and Boom'n'Zoom tactics. On realistic you can try the above strategy, but you may find that due to mouse aim some adaptations must be implemented. Don't lose sight of your attacker and be on guard for when his cannon fires. As soon as you see the barrel flash, you have about 0.7 seconds to take your plane out of the way, depending on the distance. At that point you can throw off his aim by performing a low Yo-Yo to gain more speed and proceed to zoom away if you're bellow 3000m or 10000ft, because at this altitude your engine should provide enough power for you to outrun the BF109K-4 or G-10. How ever, you may find that the Tempest Mk.V is a cinder brick, because you accelerate stupidly fast diving straight to the ground. When in trouble at high heights, dive like there is no tomorrow.

Cons:

  • Poor engine performance at high altitudes
  • Not good maneuverability at low speeds
  • High repair costs

History of creation and combat usage

The creation of the Hawker Tempest came from the failed interceptor, the Hawker Typhoon. Although originally designated the Hawker Typhoon Mk II, it later became known as the Tempest. It had much thinner wings that it' predecessor and was much faster and maneuverable.
