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:

  • 15 mm cannon does decent damage for its BR
  • Is quite durable, can take many MG rounds to take down
  • Can fly back on 1 engine, although careful management of WEP is required

Cons:

  • Poor speed and manoeuvrability, many fighters at its BR can catch up to if it descends from bomber altitude
  • Poor defensive protection
  • Major blindspots in defensive coverage, especially below the aircraft
  • Poor dive speed, can rip its wing easily

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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