|This page is about the aircraft G.91 R/1. For other uses, see G.91 (Family).|
The G.91 R/1 is a Rank V Italian jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.0 (AB) and 8.7 (RB/SB). It was introduced along with the rest of the Italian aircraft tech tree in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica".
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.
Describe the offensive armament of the aircraft, if any. Describe how effective the cannons and machine guns are in a battle, and also what belts or drums are better to use. If there is no offensive weaponry, delete this subsection.
Describe the aircraft's suspended armament: additional cannons under the wings, bombs, rockets and torpedoes. This section is especially important for bombers and attackers. If there is no suspended weaponry remove this subsection.
Defensive armament with turret machine guns or cannons, crewed by gunners. Examine the number of gunners and what belts or drums are better to use. If defensive weaponry is not available, remove this subsection.
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
- Accurate guns
- Turn time is on par with the MiG-15
- Two fewer machine guns than the F-84 and F-86, less likely to down a plane with a short burst
- Lower speed relative to the jets that it faces
- Only two payload options
- High rate of fire means that you can eat through your ammo belts quickly
The first production version of the G.91 was the G.91 R, which was intended for both close support and photo reconnaissance. The first production aircraft were finished in 1959, and the R 1 entered Italian Air Force service with 14th Gruppe in March, 1961. In total 48 of this model would be built, all serving with Italy, while the West Germans used the more powerfully armed R-3 and R-4 variants. These would be followed by another 50 R-1B combat aircraft.
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
