The Etendard has good acceleration up to 1050 km/h, after which the aircraft tends to have a very difficult time accelerating. Manoeuvrability is acceptable when above 800 km/h - not great, but not bad. However, dipping below 800 km/h causes the aircraft to lose much of its turning ability, and energy retention is quite poor at all speeds. The aircraft has a good rate of climb compared to its counterparts.

Although it does not have an afterburner, the Etendard has a very competitive TWR and acceleration, thanks to its light weight and powerful engine. It also has a good climb rate, decent turn rate, and a fairly standard set of armaments. However, like many French jets at its tier, it tends to have poor energy retention, and any manoeuvring tends drastically reduce acceleration. This means that a turnfighting play-style is often difficult, and defensive flying is hard to do successfully- the player should avoid gaining a tail if at all possible.
  
* Without load
+
As such, the aircraft's good climbing ability and acceleration make it better suited for a more passive boom and zoom play style, where it is unlikely that an enemy will be able to chase it down. Such a playstyle will require teamwork. The Etendard is by no means a solo carry, and diving in and out of furballs to support teammates is often necessary. In this play style, the player will be easily able to keep a speed above 800 km/h (below which the aircraft's manoeuvrability suffers greatly).

The Etendard has two 30 mm cannons mounted on the bottom side of the aircraft. This can throw off many players' aim, and the only way to resolve this issue is through practice. The aircraft's air-to-air missiles, while less able to lock and track enemies than missiles mounted by other aircraft at the tier, can be very effective against slow targets and unmanoeuvrable bombers such as the [[Vautour IIA IDF/AF (France)|Vautour]].

the Air Force staff requests a light tactical support plane and armed fighter aircraft specially designed to operate in the vicinity of the line of fire and, in principle, at low altitude. This aircraft must be able to carry out a dual mission: to carry out ground attacks and to fight to ensure air superiority although aerial combat remains a secondary mission and, for safety reasons, to be twin-engine. The French Navy, for its part, wants to have a similar aircraft that can be loaded on its aircraft carriers.
 
 
 
In 1955, the Technical Service of Aeronautics asked Dassault to study the embarkation of the Mystère XXIV (Étendard IV), to make it an "on-board assault and low-altitude fighter aircraft". The Étendard IV M on-board prototype is an attack and fighter aircraft at low and medium altitudes, usable from aircraft carriers of the Clemenceau class, equipped with the Snecma Atar 8 reactor with 4,400 kg of thrust.

The first Étendard IV M flies on May 21, 1958, in Melun-Villaroche, in the hands of Jean-Marie Saget. Five pre-series aircraft are produced. The performance and carrying capacity of external loads make the Étendard IV M an excellent assault aircraft, usable in secondary missions for interception and air combat, characteristics imposed by the French Navy. This order of 90 planes including 30 in photographic recognition version, Étendard IV P.
 
 
 
Ordered in September 1959, the prototype n ° 07 which became Étendard IV P made its first flight on November 19, 1960. This version carries five OMERA cameras in the nose of the fuselage while the belly compartment can also be equipped with long focal length cameras instead of cannons. It has a non-retractable in-flight refueling pole.
 
  
Between December 9, 1961 and May 26, 1965, the naval aviation received 69 Étendard IV M and 21 Étendard IV P. For the first time in its history, it reached transonic speeds. The Étendard IV M remained in active service in the French Navy until July 1991. They carried out in all 180,000 flight hours and 25,300 landings. The Étendard IV Ps remained in active service in the French Navy until July 27, 2000. They flew more than 200,000 hours.

Description

GarageImage Etendard IVM.jpg


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".

General info

Flight performance

The Etendard has good acceleration up to 1050 km/h, after which the aircraft tends to have a very difficult time accelerating. Manoeuvrability is acceptable when above 800 km/h - not great, but not bad. However, dipping below 800 km/h causes the aircraft to lose much of its turning ability, and energy retention is quite poor at all speeds. The aircraft has a good rate of climb compared to its counterparts.

Although it does not have an afterburner, the Etendard has a very competitive TWR and acceleration, thanks to its light weight and powerful engine. It also has a good climb rate, decent turn rate, and a fairly standard set of armaments. However, like many French jets at its tier, it tends to have poor energy retention, and any manoeuvring tends drastically reduce acceleration. This means that a turnfighting play-style is often difficult, and defensive flying is hard to do successfully- the player should avoid gaining a tail if at all possible.

Such a playstyle will require teamwork. The Etendard is by no means a solo carry, and diving in and out of furballs to support teammates is often necessary. In this play style, the player will be easily able to keep a speed above 800 km/h (below which the aircraft's manoeuvrability suffers greatly).

The Etendard has two 30 mm cannons mounted on the bottom side of the aircraft. This can throw off many players' aim, and the only way to resolve this issue is through practice. The aircraft's air-to-air missiles, while less able to lock and track enemies than missiles mounted by other aircraft at the tier, can be very effective against slow targets and unmanoeuvrable bombers such as the Vautour.

History

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.

Media

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