Survivability and armour

The plane isn't the best at survivability due to having very few armor around the cockpit, but it does have strong spots as well, such as a 38 mm bullet proof glass which can save you from some head-ons.

Armaments

Offensive armament

It is armed with 6x American 12.7 mm (50 caliber) browning machine guns with 300 rounds each, carrying a total of 1800 rounds of ammunition.

Suspended armament

-16x HVaR Rockets FRC Mk.2

-2x FLBC Mk.1 1000 lb bombs

Usage in battles

The CL-13 Mk.4 is rather a different Sabre to play, as well as difficult, since at battle rating 8.7 ,the armament on board is not the most effective at your disposal, so the gameplay CL-13 Mk.4 is better used as a support-fighter role, because even if you might not have the armament for head-ons, you can always count on your teammates in a good ol' fashioned bait.

But of course, it has some pros and cons

Pros and cons

The CL-13 Mk.4 is not like any other Sabre in the game, and as any other F-86 within the game, they all have their pros and cons.

Pros:

-Decent Speed for it's Tier (Rank VI)

-A magnificent roll rate

Cons:

-The General Electric J47-GE-13 engine produces minor thrust than any other Sabre, including the A-5

-Weak armament

-Prone to overload crashing

History

The CL-13 Mk.4 was not the most popular CL-13 of the Canadair Sabre line, since only 438 were produced, and 428 were given to the RAF, none of them saw actual combat.
