Survivability and armour

  • 50 mm Bulletproof glass

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MG 151/20 (20 mm)

The G.56 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm MG 151 cannon   (300 rpg)
  • 2 x 20 mm MG 151 cannons (250 rpg = 500 total)

Two of the cannons are mounted one each in the wings with the remaining cannon being nose mounted through the propeller spinner. Each wing mounted cannon is armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all wing mounted guns will fire with each other until empty. The nose cannon contains 50 more rounds of ammo than the wing mounted cannons and will continue to fire after the wing mounted cannons have run out of ammunition.

Suspended armament

Describe the aircraft's suspended armament: additional cannons under the wings, bombs, rockets, and torpedoes. This section is especially important for bombers and attackers. If there is no suspended weaponry remove this subsection.

The G.56 can externally has the following payload options:

  • Without load
  • 2 x 50   kg GP 50   bombs (total = 100 kg)
  • 2 x 100 kg GP 100 bombs (total = 200 kg)

Usage in the battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but 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).
