The BTD-1 is a single engine dive bomber and torpedo bomber and can carry a very wide array of explosive ordinance. This plane can be used effectively against both ground and naval targets. "The Destroyer" can reload on either an aircraft carrier or an airfield. It can also be utilized as a bomber hunter, using the air spawn (on non-carrier maps) and it's twin 20mm cannons to shred stray bombers.

GarageImage BTD-1.jpg


The BTD-1 Destroyer is a premium rank III American naval bomber with a battle rating of 4.3 (AB) and 4.0 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.33.

The BTD-1 is a single engine dive bomber and torpedo bomber and can carry a very wide array of explosive ordinance. This plane can be used effectively against both ground and naval targets. "The Destroyer" can reload on either an aircraft carrier or an airfield. It can also be utilized as a bomber hunter, using the air spawn (on non-carrier maps) and it's twin 20mm cannons to shred stray bombers.

General info

Flight Performance

Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

  • Good frontal armament.
  • Great choice of additional armament for it's tier and size.
  • Above average turn rate when at higher altitudes and with less load.

History

Only twenty eight aircraft were produced. Production was cancelled due to the surrender of Japan, the plane never saw combat because of this. Notice the offset vertical tail section to counter the torque. It works like a fixed rudder trim.

Media

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