In terms of armour protection, the Attacker FB.2 has a bulletproof glass in front of the pilot for some protection against head-on projectiles (although the nose has no armour, so projectiles can still attack the pilot through there. A 12.7 mm armour plate is also present behind the pilot, separating the cockpit from the rest of the fuselage. These armour protection serve more to block against incoming glancing rounds rather than concentrated firepower from the armour's general direction.

The plane's modules are all centered in the middle of the fuselage, with only small fuel tanks present at the wing roots as an outlier. All fuel tanks are self-sealing so fuel leaks are not a large problem providing that there are enough fuel reserve remaining before the fuel tanks are sealed. The plane's wings and tail do not have modules, but they can suffer damages to the surface areas and control surfaces.

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:

  • 4 x 20 mm cannon has a high fire rate & overall damage
  • High speed

Cons:

  • Poor sustained climb rate
  • Loses a lot of speed in turns
  • Becomes very slow when carrying ordnance
  • Poor turn time

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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.
