Survivability and armour

  • 8.5 mm Steel plates behind the pilot.
  • 8.5 mm Steel plates in front of dorsal gunner.
  • 5 mm Steel plate under ventral gunner.
  • 8.5 mm Steel plate in front of ventral gunner.
  • 8.5 mm steel on top of engines

Armaments

Suspended armament

The Do 217 M-1 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 4 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs
  • 28 x 50 kg SC50JA bombs
  • 8 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs
  • 2 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs + 2 x 500 kg SC500K bombs
  • 4 x 500 kg SC500K bombs
  • 2 x 1,000 kg SC1000L2 bombs
  • 4 x 1,000 kg SC1000L2 bombs
  • 2 x F5W torpedoes

Defensive armament

The Do 217 M-1 is defended by:

  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, fuselage dorsal turret (500 rpg)
  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, ventral turret (1,000 rpg)
  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, nose turret (1,000 rpg)
  • 2 x 7.92 mm MG 81 machine gun, cockpit dorsal turret (750 rpg = 1,500 total)

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 payload (up to 4 x 1,000 kg)
  • Quite fast for a bomber
  • Manoeuvrable for its size
  • Can perform both level and dive bomber
  • Very easy to fly and to land
  • One of the bombers that can demolish a base with a single run (AB)
  • Can be very difficult to catch once it reaches a high altitude
  • One can just hover-bomb the enemy base easily if left unchecked (AB)
  • One of the very few bombers that can demolish all 3 bases with a single run (RB&SB)
  • Fast, even faster with upgrades installed
  • Very fast once the payload is dropped
  • Airframe can withstand high speed
  • Good Manoeuvrability
  • Can be equipped with Torpedoes

Cons:

  • Poor defensive armament
  • Very challenging to fly with only stock upgrades
  • Not very durable
  • Carrying the 4,000 kg payload will add external pylons which will increase drag
  • Carrying the 4,000 kg payload will significantly reduce speed and performance
  • Carrying the 4,000 kg payload will reduce the climb rate into a crawl
  • Stock payload is terrible
  • Cramped cockpit and poor pilot protection
  • Tail design creates a blind spot to the already underwhelming defensive armaments

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 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 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.
