The Ba.65 (K.14) L is a rank I Italian attacker with a battle rating of 1.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica".

The Breda Ba.65 (K.14) L as a ground attacker of rank 1.0 (Reserve) does its job with little to no problem due to its high ammo count and the fact that it gets an air spawn in Realistic Battles (which makes up for the slow speed that the plane suffers from). In Realistic, most of the time you will be flying against Russian planes or in some cases, depending on the map, the Americans and British. Your tail gunner, which is armed with a 7.7 mm machine gun, will do medium to high amounts of damage if armed with Universal belts as the 7.7 mm machine gun gets more dangerous the closer the enemy gets. If you get a chance at a head on, go for it because you will most likely win 4 out of 5 head-ons with this plane.

The Ba.65 is one of the few reserve aircraft with flaps. You can use it to slow down during a strafing run to put more rounds into the target. Also, if you've mapped different keys for small calibre and large calibre guns, the 7.7 mm machine guns will be recognized as small calibre and the 12.7 mm machine guns will be recognized as large calibre, so you'll have to press both keys in order to bring your full firepower to bear. As for payloads, the 4 x 50 kg bombs are much more useful against the light ground targets you will see at this battle rating.

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.

Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.


Offensive armament

The Ba.65 (K.14) L is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT da 12.7 mm machine guns, wing-mounted (350 rpg = 700 total)
  • 2 x 7.7 mm Breda-SAFAT da 7.7 mm machine guns, wing-mounted (500 rpg = 1,000 total)

Suspended armament

The Ba.65 (K.14) L can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 4 x 50 kg GP 50 bombs (200 kg total)
  • 2 x 100 kg GP 100 bombs (200 kg total)

Defensive armament

The Ba.65 (K.14) L is defended by:

  • 1 x 7.7 mm Breda-SAFAT da 7.7 mm machine gun, dorsal turret (500 rpg)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons


  • Insane armament count, capable of downing planes in a few seconds
  • Protected from most threats by the rear turret
  • Decent energy retention which should be enough to get some players off you


  • Slow speeds and slow acceleration of aircraft
  • Inferior turn rate than most biplanes
  • Catches fire easily
  • No armour or pilot protection
  • Low survivability


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 long, 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).


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