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

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.


Offensive armament

Main article: DEFA 552 (30 mm)

The Etendard IVM is armed with:

  • 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons, belly-mounted (120 rpg = 240 total)

Suspended armament

The Etendard IVM can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 4 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs (2,000 lb total)
  • 2 x 1,000 lb LDGP Mk 83 bombs (2,000 lb total)
  • 72 x SNEB type 23 rockets
  • 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles
  • 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs + 36 x SNEB type 23 rockets (1,000 lb total)
  • 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs + 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles (1,000 lb total)
  • 36 x SNEB type 23 rockets + 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles

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".




at the end of 1953, Drawing lessons from the Korean War (1950-1953), the Air Force staff and the official services, concerned with the increase in weight and aircraft prices, write specifications for a light interceptor.

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.

in his life, the Etendard was engaged :

 - In Lebanon, in 1983-1984: On September 23, 1983, an aircraft was hit at the tail by a surface-to-air missile 9K32 Strela-2, but managed to reach the aircraft carrier Foch without difficulty. Repaired, it flies four days later ;

- In the former Yugoslavia from 1993 : On April 15, 1994, the Étendard IVP n °115, on a reconnaissance mission, was hit by a surface-to-air missile in Bosnia and Herzegovina over Gorazde. Without elevator, riddled with impacts, Lieutenant-Commander Pierre Clary achieves a piloting feat and, with the help of his teammate, he brings the plane back on board the Clemenceau after a deck-landing at a speed higher than normal. A television crew present on the aircraft carrier immortalizes the landing. The plane was repaired in the Cuers workshops and resumed flight a month and a half later ;

- In Kosovo in 1999.


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