Description

GarageImage Pallier'sD.510.jpg


Pallier's D.510 is a premium rank I French fighter with a battle rating of 1.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France". It costs 250 Golden Eagles. The plane is modelled after one used by French pilot Gabriel Pallier.

The Dewoitine D.510 is an open cockpit monoplane equipped with one Hispano-Suiza H.S.404 cannon and two MAC 1934 7.5 mm machine guns. The aircraft has no specific defects, but no notable advantages either. Its engine is extremely prone to catching fire (especially when hit by weapons of 12.7 mm caliber)

Survivability and armour

  • 3 mm Steel plate in the nose behind the engine.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The Pallier's D.510 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, nose-mounted (60 rpg)
  • 2 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine guns, wing-mounted (300 rpg = 600 total)

The two machine guns are arranged with one mounted on the underside of each wing. Each are armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty. The 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon is mounted in the nose and fires out of the propeller hub.

Usage in battles

The extremely limited 20 mm ammo supply should be guarded carefully and used only for heavier and larger targets where the destructive power of the HEF shells can make quick work of enemies. Most other fighters of the period will fall quickly enough to the 7.5 mm MAC rounds.

Like most other low-tier fighters, the D.510 is exceptionally agile, able to turn well inside aircraft even a single BR higher. Combined with the powerful 20mm Hispano cannon, the D.510 can be a serious threat to aircraft well above its normal rank.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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