General info

The Z.1007 bis serie 5 in the Garage.

The Z.1007 bis serie 5 is a Rank III Italian bomber with a battle rating of 3.3 (AB) and 3.0 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica".

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The Z.1007 bis serie 5 is a relatively versatile medium bomber, sacrificing defensive armament and instead focusing on performance in order to avoid interception. It has a relatively decent bomb-load with several options for use against different kinds of targets. It can even carry a torpedo to use against ships.

Vehicle characteristics

The Z.1007 bis is a distinct upgrade over the SM.79 series in every aspect. It can carry an extra 6 x 100 kg bombs on external racks in addition to the internal 2 x 500 kg bombs, which is 600 kg more than any of the SM.79 series can carry. This loadout is the best one against bases. It can also carry an extra 250 kg bomb over the SM.79 series for a total of 6 x 250 kg bombs. This payload is better for destroying tanks, but requires precise aim to destroy pillboxes; the 500 kg bombs may be more forgiving if attacking them from altitude. It can also carry a single torpedo for use against shipping.

In order to make up for the weak power output of Italian engines, the Z.1007bis has the trimotor configuration characteristic of Italian bombers. The combined horsepower of the three engines provides decent flight performance, but losing even a single engine will immensely degrade it. The Z.1007bis is also faster than the SM.79 series, which is fortunate because it has a relatively poor defensive armament despite its good coverage. The dorsal turret can cover 360 degrees, but is armed with only one of the relatively weak Italian 12.7 mm machine guns. The beam 7.7 mm guns are effectively worthless, and should not be depended upon. The ventral 12.7 mm machine gun provides limited coverage to attacks from below.

The biggest difference between the serie 5 from the serie 3 is the twin tail configuration on the serie 5, which eliminates the dorsal turret's deadzone created by the serie 3's single tail. Other than that, they are virtually identical.

Tactics

Specific enemies worth noting

SB2C - Since this attacker has a bomber spawn it is likely you will find yourself at altitude with one, avoid at all cost due to poor defensive armament.

Counter-tactics

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Dorsal turret can traverse 360 degrees.
  • Decent speed and performance.
  • Decent bomb-load.
  • Central engine provides some protection to the crew against head-on attacks.

Cons:

  • Poor defensive armament.
  • Under-powered engines; losing one dramatically impacts flight performance.
  • Aircraft crew are closely bunched up together.
  • Nonexistent armour.
  • No defensive armament at the front of the plane.
  • Tends to overheat on summer maps.

Performance

Z.1007 bis serie 5/Horsepower graph

Modules and improvements

  1. Get Radiator for the speed boost, then the TBC-79.
  2. Next, get the MCGP250 and Compressor upgrades to unlock the 250 kg bombs and a slight performance boost, respectively.
  3. Unlock the MCRO500 upgrade to use the 2 x 500 kg + 6 x 100 kg bomb loadout. This is the loadout that does the most damage to bases, and the 500 kg bomb is easier to use against pillboxes.
  4. Focus on performance upgrades before defensive armament.
  5. The MCRO800 upgrade with 800 kg bombs is actually worse than the MCRO500 against bases, and can be left as the last upgrade.
