Usage in battles

This plane plays mostly like its predecessor, but it has the added bonus of a search radar and a pair of upwards firing MG 151 cannons. This plane is also slightly slower and climbs worse due to the drag of the search radar and the extra radar operator. A strategy for experienced pilots is to turn the plane upside down and use the upwards firing guns to strafe ground targets, just remember to pull up in time! This plane is like a fusion between the Bf 110 G-2 and the Do 217 N-2. You can use strategies used on both planes on this aircraft but less effectively. Watch out for enemies that can out-turn you, have a better climb than you, or if there are a horde of them.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great variety of payload options
  • Very powerful armament
  • Has Schräge Musik cannons
  • Can carry powerful Wfr.Gr.21 rockets
  • Can carry the large SC1000L2
  • Has radar capability

Cons:

  • Not very manoeuvrable
  • Rockets are hard to aim (they fire in an upwards arc meaning you will have to fire them at ground targets while shallow diving)
  • Third crew member radar operator means slightly more weight than other Bf 110s
  • Has the same DB 605 engine as its predecessor, meaning it is slower and climbs slower due to the extra drag and weight

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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