Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • Six total self-sealing fuel tanks located in wings

Armaments

Suspended armament

The M.B.162 can be configured with the following payloads:

  • 6 x 100 kg №.1 bombs + 6 x 200 kg №.1 bombs (1,800 kg = total)
  • 4 x 500 kg №.2 bombs (2,000 kg = total)

Defensive armament

The M.B.162 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine gun, 2 x beam turrets (500 RPG = 1,000 total)
  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, dorsal turret (120 RPG)
  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, ventral turret (120 RPG)

Usage in the battles

The M.B. 162 is a heavy bomber, and therefore should be flown as such. When you start a match, you will want to climb to 5-6 km in altitude, to protect yourself from German fighters that will climb to intercept you, and mark out a bomb target to your team. With both of the payload options, all bombs are needed to destroy a bombing base.
