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

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Pros:

  • Great climb rate compared to foes like P-47D, P-51D
  • Fast acceleration thanks to small airframe
  • Decently manoeuvrable, can dogfight clumsier planes like the P-47
  • 20mm HE shells are destructive against similar planes (e.g. Spitfire, P-51, A6M5)
  • Nose-mounted guns are beginner-friendly to aim especially in simulator
  • Able to carry bombs, effectively acting as a multi-role aircraft
  • Can carry 2 x 20 mm gunpods for bomber-hunting

Cons:

  • Inadequate turning ability at all speeds compared to agile opponents (e.g. A6M, Yak-3, Spitfire)
  • Poor high speed performance, disadvantaged against high-speed fighters like P-47, P-38
  • 20 mm cannon has rather limited ammo, trigger discipline is required
  • Overall fragile structure and light armour, cannot take any hits
  • Engine overheats easily when constantly engaging WEP
  • Cockpit visibility is heavily obstructed by nose, razorback and framing

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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