Survivability and armour
- 50 mm Bulletproof glass in front and rear of the cockpit.
The VB.10C-1 is armed with:
- 4 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannons (150 rpg = 600 total)
The four cannons are arranged in bundles of two mounted in each wing. Each is armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty.
Usage in battles
As a heavy fighter, it is most important to side climb as most enemies will outclimb it. The best tactic is BnR, as it's great acceleration can allow you to make fast attacks against unsuspecting enemy fighters. The best tactic is to have squad mates drain an enemy of his energy and move in for an easy kill. The aircraft's acceleration combined with the top speed makes it hard to stay on an enemy's tail for long as you will likely overshoot.
