Being a premium aircraft, it has all its modules researched by default.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very similar play style to the B-18 Bolo. The dorsal and frontal turrets seemed to have swapped places, meaning turret in front and nest in back.
  • The bombload is more than capable of leveling bases and vehicle formations. A single 2000 lb bomb can net you 850+ points in a match from a good run.
  • The frontal gunner, while only having a .30 cal, can be used as a manual weapon if you keep the front of the plane on an enemies tail.
  • Although being a premium, it is a less well known plane, leading to some confusion on the plane.Can be very helpful in battles.
  • Despite its pre-war design, it easily handles damage and fires can dealt with easily.
  • While having limited fire arcs on the rear turrets, they are well protected and regularly surprise enemies that don't know they're there.

Cons:

  • Like with all American bombers, it is a large target. An altitude advantage can help alleviate some problems with enemy fighters.
  • Despite the high speed, it can easily be caught up to by more advanced Rank I aircraft, such as the Soviet Yakolev and Lavochkin aircraft.
  • Unlike its younger brother, the B-18, the B-10s rear gunners have a slightly restricted field of view, giving a sort of blind spot to the gunners.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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