Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • Engines and fuel tank in wings

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MG 15 (7.92 mm)

The Do 17 E-1 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun, nose mounted (375 rpg)

Suspended armament

The options available for the Do 17 E-1 are:

  • 10 x 50 kg SC50JA bombs
  • 2 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs

Defensive armament

Main article: MG 15 (7.92 mm)

The Do 17 E-1 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun, dorsal turret (750 rpg)
  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun, ventral turret (375 rpg)

Usage in battles

The Do-17 E-1 can be used in two distinct methods. The pilot can dive to low altitude to reach higher speeds and use the 10 50kg bombs to eliminate ground targets or it can be used as a support bomber flying behind other heavy bombers and finishing bases. This approach is dangerous and less rewarding because you are slow as you climb and fighters can easily pick you off.

Bombers capable of attacking eg. B-25s or Ju-87s with MG or CN pods can provide early threats and any climbing fighters will easily out turn you and pick off your engines or your control surfaces.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Does not frequently meet cannon or HMG armed fighters.
  • Decent payload for its rank.
  • Has a very short takeoff run.
  • Is one of the few German bombers with a machine gun armament.
  • Has great maneuverability, compared to other bombers of its rank.
  • Has both a dorsal and ventral gunner.

Cons:

  • Slow compared to other bombers, formations are difficult to maintain
  • Big target.
  • Like most German bombers of its rank, lacks defense against any fighter.
  • Cannot fly with only one engine it will be able to maintain speed and altitude only for a short time.
  • Light defensive armament can only protect from 4-8 o’clock high and vertically below

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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 dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

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