Survivability and armour

  • 8.5 mm steel - pilot's seat
  • 8.5 mm steel - around dorsal gunner
  • 8.5 mm steel - aft of ventral gunner
  • 5 mm steel - below ventral gunner

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MG 151/20 (20 mm)

The Do 217 E-4 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, chin-mounted (250 rpg)

Suspended armament

The Do 217 E-4 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 4 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (1,000 kg total)
  • 26 x 50 kg SC50JA bombs (1,300 kg total)
  • 8 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (2,000 kg total)
  • 2 x 500 kg SC500K bombs + 2 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (1,500 kg total)
  • 4 x 500 kg SC500K bombs (2,000 kg total)
  • 2 x 1,000 kg SC1000L2 bombs (2,000 kg total)
  • 4 x 1,000 kg SC1000L2 bombs (4,000 kg total)

Defensive armament

The Do 217 E-4 is defended by:

  • 1 x 20 mm MG FF/M cannon, nose turret (240 rpg)
  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, dorsal turret (500 rpg)
  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, ventral turret (1,000 rpg)
  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun, 2 x frontal beam turrets (500 rpg)

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

Pros:

  • Good and accurate defensive armament
  • Having an offensive 20 mm autocannon is really good
  • Good max speed and acceleration
  • Engines rarely overheat when upgraded
  • Very nice climb rate and turn rate
  • Can carry up to 4 x 1000 kg bombs, which can be used to destroy 3 bases
  • Easy to land
  • Always WEP when you have upgraded the engine parts
  • Can compete with some bombers at high altitudes, so after bombing you can search for bombers and stop them

Cons:

  • Very loud engines
  • Flaps easily get damaged at +250 km/h. You will lose the landing flaps really easy
  • The gunners can easily be knocked out by enemy fire
  • Oil leak and fuel leak for just a few shots (even with 12.7 mm bullets)
  • The plane gets uncontrollable at high speeds
  • Any damage to central area of the plane body will cause loss of speed
  • Any damage to flaps makes the aircraft really hard to land
  • When stock, about 10s of WEP will cause overheating (may differ in altitudes)

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></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. 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.

See also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

External links

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • encyclopedia page on the aircraft;
  • other literature.
