General info

The VB.10C-1 in the garage.

The VB.10C-1 is a Rank IV French heavy fighter with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB/SB) and 4.0 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France".

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

As a heavy fighter, it is most important to side climb as most enemies will out climb it. The best tactic is BnR, as it's great acceleration can allow you to make fast attacks against unsuspecting enemy fighters. The best tactic is to have squad mates drain an enemy of his energy and move in for an easy kill. The aircraft's acceleration combined with the top speed makes it hard to stay on an enemy's tail for long as you will likely overshoot.

The best role is a medium altitude BnZ tactic. It's German/Italian counterparts will outclimb it, the best option is remain on the sidelines and wait for your teamates to drag the enemies to low altitude.

Tactics

Specific enemies worth noting

Counter-tactics

The best way to counter it is in an energy fighter role. It's roll rate is sub par and it has a difficult time aligning guns, this can be exploited. A skilled 109 pilot can use the roll rate to force the VB.10 into an overshoot. It's important not to turn with a VB.10 if it's behind you as it can match the turn of a 109 rather easily.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very fast at medium to low altitudes
  • Average climb rate (Inferior to German/Italian counterparts at its BR)
  • Decent ammo count
  • Good turn rate(can maneuver with Bf-109s)
  • Brutal acceleration in a dive
  • Good horizontal energy retention
  • Good cockpit visibility(Important for SB players

Cons:

  • Awful vertical turner
  • Rudder is unresponsive at high speeds
  • Very heavy feeling in the air
  • Stock belts are unimpressive
  • Stock guns are inaccurate
  • Similar to Do-335, guns can be difficult to align at high speeds
  • Bad roll rate is made even worse with unresponsive rudder
