The '''C.R.714''' is a Rank I French fighter with a battle rating of 1.7. It was introduced in [[Update 1.73 "Vive la France"]].
  
 +
The C.R.714 is a good transition for new pilots going from biplanes to mono-wing aircraft.  Like many aircraft which are mono-wing (light Japanese aircraft excepted), they are heavier than biplanes leading to a poorer turning radius in comparison.  Alternatively, newer mono-wing aircraft tended to utilize larger engines and were capable of more power.  The C.R.714 initially was developed as a race plane and excels when it is allowed to remain at speed, however if forced into a turning battle, it will lose speed rapidly.

The C.R.714 is a fairly responsive aircraft and while it may not be the best turn fighter, if you are caught in a turn/looping fight, utilize the strong rudder to aid in making sharper turns.  Many times, utilizing the rudder will throw off the trajectory of your aircraft making it more difficult for a pursuing aircraft to get accurate gun fire on you.

The C.R.714 is a Rank I French fighter with a battle rating of 1.7. It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France".

The C.R.714 is a good transition for new pilots going from biplanes to mono-wing aircraft. Like many aircraft which are mono-wing (light Japanese aircraft excepted), they are heavier than biplanes leading to a poorer turning radius in comparison. Alternatively, newer mono-wing aircraft tended to utilize larger engines and were capable of more power. The C.R.714 initially was developed as a race plane and excels when it is allowed to remain at speed, however if forced into a turning battle, it will lose speed rapidly.

Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • Critical components located at front of aircraft (fuel, pilot, engine, controls)
  • More fuel tanks located in wings near fuselage

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MAC 1934 (7.5 mm)

The C.R.714 is armed with:

  • 4 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine guns (300 rpg = 1,200 total)

The four machine guns are arranged in bundles of two mounted in the wing. Each are armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty.


Usage in the battles

The C.R.714's racing heritage heavily influences the play style for this aircraft: Boom and Zoom. Use your speed to get in, hit a few targets, and get out. Do not engage in a turn fight!. Most of all of other fighters you will face will have a tighter turning radius and will easily find themselves right behind you.

The C.R.714 is a fairly responsive aircraft and while it may not be the best turn fighter, if you are caught in a turn/looping fight, utilize the strong rudder to aid in making sharper turns. Many times, utilizing the rudder will throw off the trajectory of your aircraft making it more difficult for a pursuing aircraft to get accurate gun fire on you.

Pros:

  • Great roll rate
  • Decent level speed
  • Machine guns are quite powerful (~25 rounds per second per gun)
  • Small target
  • Slightly better climb rate than average
  • One of the best rank 1 Boom and Zoom/energy fighters

Cons:

  • Average turn radius (almost catches smoke trail in turn)
  • Low ammunition count
  • Can be difficult to master for early players still learning the game

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.
