Description

GarageImage F-84G-21-RE Italy.jpg


The ▄F-84G-21-RE is a rank V Italian jet fighter with a battle rating of 7.7 (AB/RB) and 8.0 (SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica".

The F-84G is a fighter-bomber. It's very capable at fighting enemy aircraft while also quite good at CAS (close air support). Once the Italian Ground Forces Tech Tree arrives, this aircraft is going to be phenomenal at ground striking.

The F-84G's acceleration is quite good for a jet at with a battle rating of 7.7 (AB/RB) and 8.0 (SB). It's also a very good climber, precisely the early jet with the best climb rate. It has got 6 x 12.7mm M3 machine guns with 1800 rounds of ammunition which is plenty. The air spawn at 610-640 kph is a huge advantage. Turn rate is poor, avoid turn fighting in it. Roll rate is average without New Boosters, good with New Boosters.

The F-84G-21-RE is a Boom & Zoom aircraft. It utilizes its ability to rush thanks to the air spawn, acceleration and very good climb rate in order to cause the enemies to panic.

Usage in the battles

The F-84G-21-RE should be played as an aggressive Boom & Zoom aircraft. Meaning that as soon as you spawn in it, you turn to the direction of the enemy airfield to rush and reach 850+ kph. Engage those who are climbing, there is also a chance of catching a few away-from-keyboard climbers too. After climbing to engage an enemy at altitude, do not turn back to follow them if they evade. Continue zoom climbing, do a vertical loop and maintain level flight to gain a little bit more speed. After that, the only way you're supposed to fly against enemies is by diving, engaging, zooming up, vertical loop then rinse and repeat.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very high top speed for an early jet
  • Air spawn, good for rushing
  • Can carry large amounts of payloads
  • Wide variety of secondary armament (bombs, rockets)
  • 6 x 12.7 mm M3 machine guns
  • Very good acceleration for an early jet, even stock
  • The best climber from 7.0 - 8.0 (excluding the G.91s)

Cons

  • Not good at turning
  • May rip if pulled hard enough
  • Italy doesn't have a ground forces tech tree (currently), making it's secondary payload options useless for now
  • Roll rate is average without New Boosters
  • Engines overheating

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.
