Survivability and armour

  • 38 mm Bulletproof glass in cockpit front.
  • 3 mm Steel plates in front of the cockpit, top of the fuselage.
  • 8 mm Steel plate behind the pilot
  • 12.7 mm Steel plate on the headrest.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: AN/M3 (20 mm)

The F4U-7 is armed with:

  • 4 x 20 mm AN/M3 cannons, wing-mounted (246 rpg = 984 total)

The four cannons are arranged in bundles of two mounted in each wing. Each is armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty.

Suspended armament

Main article: Suspended armaments

The F4U-7 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 10 x 100 kg №.1 bombs (1,000 kg total)
  • 10 x 250 lb AN-M57 bombs (1,250 kg total)
  • 4 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs (1,000 kg total)
  • 3 x 1,000 lb AN-M65A1 bombs (1,500 kg total)
  • 10 x HVAR rockets
  • 10 x T10 140 rockets
  • 10 x T10 151 rockets
  • 114 x SNEB type 23 rockets

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles 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

Pros:

  • AN/M3 20 mm cannons have a lot of ammunition (246 rounds per gun, 984 rounds in total)
  • 114 x SNEB rockets are devastating against both ground and air targets

Cons:

  • Relatively bad climb rate
  • Performs poorly with suspended armaments

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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

Media

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