Usage in battles

The F.C.20 Bis isn't great fighting against other planes, but if you attack an unaware enemy when you have the opportunity, take advantage of the 37 mm cannon with HE rounds to take out the objective quickly and escape from the scene. When attacking ground targets use APHE rounds with the 37 mm cannon to easily penetrate the roofs of heavy armoured targets or destroy the lightly armoured ones. The 160 kg bombs are also decent at taking out enemies.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good ground attack capabilities
    • Has a quick firing 37 mm (with 49 mm AP penetration)
  • Payloads can serve a variety of different purposes
  • Defensive turret has a 180° turn radius, covering a wide range

Cons:

  • Mediocre climb rate
  • Heavy plane
  • Weak engines
  • Catches fire easily
  • Rather underwhelming defensive armament
  • Loses a lot of speed in turns
  • Not very fast for its BR

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

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