Survivability and armour

  • 6.35 mm steel - in front of cockpit
  • 12.7 mm steel - pilot's seat
  • 20 mm steel - pilot's head rest
  • 38 mm bulletproof glass - armoured windscreen
  • Engine and fuel tanks take up most of fuselage
  • More fuel tanks in wings

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Browning M3 (12.7 mm)

The CL-13A Mk 5 is armed with:

  • 6 x 12.7 mm Browning M3 machine guns, nose-mounted (300 rpg = 1,800 total)

Suspended armament

The CL-13A Mk 5 can be outfitted with the following ordinance:

  • Without payload
  • 16 x 127 mm HVAR rockets
  • 2 x 1,000 lb AN-M65A1 Fin M129 bombs (2,000 lb total)

Usage in the battles

Speed is everything. Reach around 1000 kph and then 10 to 20 degree climb then level out before dropping below 750 kmh IAS.

Watch out for planes like F-86F-2 Sabres and Hunters. These two you'll see the most and they will see you as a big threat since you pretty much out-perform them in every aspect. Destroy them before they pose any threat to you.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Excellent roll rate at all speeds.
  • Flying tail elevator provides insane maneuverability at higher speeds.
  • High velocity heavy machine gun armament.
  • High rate of fire .50 cal M3 machine guns.
  • Turn rate is very good (not better than F-86A-5/F-40 Sabre).
  • Very good climb rate against all jets.
  • Better acceleration than most 9.0 jets, accelerating more than any other Sabre in game.
  • All round aircraft (good at AB, RB, and SB).

Cons:

  • Low speed maneuverability worse than earlier jets.
  • Installed boosters breaks your wings if pulled over 12 G.
  • Weak landing gears.
  • Its excessive flight performance very often causes overconfidence, which can prove deadly.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
