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

  • 6 x 12.7 mm (0.50 caliber) M3 Browning machine guns
    • Ammo count: 1800 rounds (300 rpg)
    • Rate of Fire: 1200 rpm

Suspended armament

- 2 x 1000 lb bombs

- 16 x HVAR rockets

- 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder infrared-guided missiles.

Defensive armament

Defensive armament with turret machine guns or cannons, crewed by gunners. Examine the number of gunners and what belts or drums are better to use. If defensive weaponry is not available remove this subsection.

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

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - they can be substituted with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".


  • Respectable armament of 6x 12.7mm M3 machine guns.
  • Unlike the earlier CL-13 Mk.5 and the German MiG-19, it can equip Sidewinder missiles.
  • Good high-speed maneuverability.
  • Relatively low stall speed for a jet.
  • Comes with a historically accurate camouflage.


  • Wings can rip fairly easily at high speeds/G-forces if you're not careful.
  • MG armament lacks the stopping power of cannons.
  • Lousy low-speed maneuverability.
  • Low ammo count for the machine guns.


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's devblog entry (if applicable) and the ingame encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).


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