The Etendard IVM is a rank VI French jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/SB) and 9.0 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.95 "Northern Wind".
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.
The Etendard IVM can be outfitted with the following ordnance:
- 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons
- 4 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons (2,000 lb total)
- 2 x 1,000 lb LDGP Mk 83 bombs + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons (2,000 lb total)
- 2 x AS-20 Nord missiles
- 72 x SNEB type 23 rockets + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons
- 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons
- 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs + 36 x SNEB type 23 rockets + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons (1,000 lb total)
- 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs + 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons (1,000 lb total)
- 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles + 36 x SNEB type 23 rockets + 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons
Usage in battles
Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft 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
Summarise 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 - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".
The Dassault Etendard was designed on an airplane base initially intended for the French Air Force, to participate in the competition for the best ground attack aircraft capable of operating from makeshift runways.
This design was not chosen by NATO, which preferred the Fiat G.91. The French Air Force also did not want it and preferred to wait until the end of the development of the Mirage III. However, the prototype built for the French Air Force caught the attention of the Navy, which requested a navalised prototype in 1956.
A new engine was then added to it: the Atar 8 (Atar 9 without afterburner); an in-flight refuelling pole; new high lift devices; a new fuselage with a larger wing area; foldable wing tips; a new reinforced structure to support catapultages and landings; and finally, enlarged the nose cone to fit the new Aida radar. 5 devices were ordered in pre-production by the French Navy in May 1957. On May 21, 1958, at Melun Villaroche, Jean-Marie Saget took charge of the plane. The Etendard flew as fast as the Super Mystere B2 despite not having an afterburner.
Dassault would produce 90 copies in Mérignac (not counting the prototypes). From the Etendard IVM no.1 to no.69, deliveries were made from December 1961 to May 1965.
The Etendard IVM was gradually withdrawn from service from 1978, due to the introduction of the Super Etendard.
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
