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:

  • Rather powerful bombload of one 500 lb bomb or two 250 lb bombs for the battle rating
  • 4 x 7.62 mm MG is decent firepower for the battle rating, allowing it to effectively damage/destroy aircraft if needed
  • Great over-the-nose visibility makes leading very easy in Simulator
  • Engine does not overheat quickly
  • Has a rear gunner with a 7.62 mm MG for self-defence

Cons:

  • Extremely poor speed for a monoplane, cannot even catch I-16s quickly
  • Very slow energy retention
  • Is quite a big target
  • Does not have any armour protection
  • Does not have reflector gunsight, meaning you cannot move the pilot's head in Simulator or the reticle will not align
  • Overall aircraft responds slowly to aiming adjustments, making it hard to put a solid burst into a manoeuvring target
  • Bombload is quite poor for an aircraft of its size and role, the Hawk III carries the same payload while being a lightweight biplane

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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