Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Nice bombload of 4 x 250 lb + 6 x 100 lb bombs
  • Has 2 x forward-facing 7.62 mm MGs, each with decent amount of ammo (500 RPG), allows to strafe soft ground units
  • Big, chubby fuselage may soak up bullets
  • Adequate defensive guns: a powerful .50 cal protects the upper rear, and a 7.62 mm protects the downward rear which are common directions of attack
  • Has self-sealing fuel tanks
  • H-tail does not get in the way of the gunners

Cons:

  • Is a big and slow target for fighters/interceptors
  • Has no turrets facing the front, making it vulnerable to frontal attacks
  • Lacks turret covering the sides
  • Like a typical bomber, has low climb rate, speed and turn time
  • Big engines can easily get hit

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
