  • Flares

  • Excellent ground attack capabilities.

Cons:

  • Weak airframe can be taken down even by roof-mounted MGs from enemy tanks.

  • Very slow, easy target for SPAAs and aircraft
  • Priority target for the enemy team as you are extremely dangerous
  • No armor whatsoever.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
