Description

GarageImage CR714.jpg


The C.R.714 is a rank I French fighter with a battle rating of 1.3 (AB/RB/SB). 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.

General info

Flight Performance

the caudron 714 is really dificult to play because your only avantage is the speed at this br.

In reality it's a racing plane, not a good fighter.

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 and cons

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:

  • Machine guns jam between 6 - 10 seconds of continuous fire
  • 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

The Caudron CR714 was imagined around the concept of the "Light hunter". The CR714 is a direct descendant of the brand's glorious record aircraft. The first C710 fixed-train model, studied by Maurice DEVLIEGER's team, was therefore presented in 1934, in response to the C1 program (renewal of hunting) in the light hunter category. The C710, which flew for the first time on July 10, 1936, was rejected due to its too limited performance: 460 km / h in level. It is quickly followed by the CR713 "Cyclone". The design is identical to the C710, but this time it has a retractable train, and a redesigned fin. It flew for the first time in December 1937. Only Russia was of interest for this CR713, as well as for the C710. (see version chapter)

Caudron continues the development of the Caudron hunter, and presents the CR714, very similar to the CR713, it flies for the first time on July 6, 1936. The tests continue (see chapter version) while the first orders arrive in November 1938: 20 copies and 180 optional.
