Ba.65 (K.14) L
The Ba.65 (K.14) L is a Rank I Italian bomber 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 with a battle rating of 1.3 (AB/RB/SB) (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 battle (which makes up for the slow speed and 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 caliber and large caliber guns, the 7.7 mm machine guns will be recognized as small caliber and the 12.7 mm machine guns will be recognized as large caliber. 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.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.
An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the series of the aircraft;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:
- topic on the official game forum;
- encyclopedia page on aircraft;
