Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Hispano Mk.V (20 mm)

The Tempest Mk V (Germany) is armed with:

  • 4 x 20 mm Hispano Mk.V cannons, wing-mounted (200 rpg = 800 total)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an 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

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

On October 15, 1944, a Hawker Tempest Mk V, EJ709, flown by F/O George Taylor Kinnel of the RNZAF, was flying an armed reconnaissance mission over Münster when he was hit by flak and crash landed at Nieukerk. He survived the landing and was taken as a POW.[1]

The aircraft was salvaged by 2./Versuchsverband O.K.L. and moved to Finnow. There, it was repaired with parts from another Tempest that had been shot down near Hespe in December 1944. The repairs were finished on January 4, 1945. It was then brought to Rechlin for testing.[1]

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
