Description

GarageImage V.G.33C-1.jpg


The V.G.33C-1 is a rank II French fighter with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/SB) and 2.7 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France".

The V.G.33 can adequately deal with planes with similar BR. It is quick, nimble (to an extent), and powerful. Its machine guns and single propeller-mounted 20mm does a decent amount of damage. However, it lacks armor, so take that into account when engaging other aircraft.

Survivability and armour

  • 3 mm Steel plate between engine and oil cooling system.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The V.G.33C-1 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, nose-mounted (60 rpg)
  • 4 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine guns, wing-mounted (500 rpg = 2,000 total)

Usage in battles

The V.G is a very competitive aircraft at its Battle Rating, with decent climb rate, good speed and good manoeuvrability. Its biggest weaknesses are its lack of ammo and lack of armour. To take advantage of this plane it's best to side climb and exploit any opportunities that are spotted. Both turn fighting and BnZ tactics work well with this plane but turn fighting is the better of the two due to the lack of ammo, it also allows for, generally speaking, a better and cleaner shot. Trigger control is key when flying this.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 20 mm cannon is very dangerous, especially with high explosive ammunition.
  • Relatively fast.
  • Excellent manoeuvrability.
  • Impressive efficiency of 4 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine guns.

Cons:

  • 20 mm cannon has very small ammo pool.
  • 20 mm cannon under-performs until you research new ammunition belts.
  • Too weak, especially the fuel tanks.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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 === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

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