The G.91 ''Small Sabre'' entered service with the Luftwaffe in 1962 after winning the 1953 NATO light tactical support aircraft competition. This competition had called for a fighter which could carry 452 kg of ordnance, patrol a combat radius of 180 km assuming 10 mins over the target, average cruising speed of at least 705 km/h and Mach 0.95 capability. It also had to be fully operational on grass or other types of unprepared runways, with a take-off distance of 1,100 m. The R/3 was the Luftwaffe's version of the G.91, but with more powerful armament, two wing points for suspended ordnance and better avionics than the Italian Air Force's R/1s. Fifty R/3s were built in Italy starting in 1959 and another 294 were license-built in West Germany. The Luftwaffe also received another 50 of the very similar R/4 aircraft after orders for Greece and Turkey fell through. The Luftwaffe also had 66 T-3 two-seat trainer models built of which twenty-two were built in Germany.

This page is about the German jet fighter G.91 R/3. For other uses, see G.91 (Family).

Description

GarageImage G.91 R3.jpg


The G.91 R/3 is a rank V German jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.0 (AB/SB) and 8.7 (RB). It was introduced in Update 1.91 "Night Vision".

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.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: DEFA 552 (30 mm)

The G.91 R/3 is armed with:

  • 2 x 30 mm DEFA 552 cannons, nose-mounted (125 rpg = 250 total)

The G.91/R3 is equipped with two 30 mm DEFA cannons with 250 rounds of ammunition. The guns are housed on the sides of the nose. They have a good firerate and can easily shred an aircraft, but ammunition is limited.

Suspended armament

The G.91 R/3 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 4 x 250 lb AN-M57 bombs (1,000 lb total)
  • 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs (1,000 lb total)
  • 4 x AS-20 missiles
  • 38 x SNEB Type 23 rockets

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

Pros:

  • Exceptional manoeuvrability, with very high roll and turn rates
  • Effective suspended armament choices for ground strike
  • Access to the AS-20 Nord air-to-ground missile that can destroy any tank
  • Two 30 mm DEFA cannons available
  • Can carry 4 x AS-20 Nord missiles unlike most other jet fighters which only can carry two
  • Small burst of 30 mm cannons is enough to fully destroy a plane especially in the head-on situations
  • Has access to drag chute, its very effective for losing speed when landing on the small airfields
  • The 30 mm cannons have very good penetration can destroy light tanks through the hull and other main battle tanks through the roof

Cons:

  • Slower than most of its contemporaries
  • Very fragile airframe
  • Poor energy retention
  • Fairly low ammo count for the guns means that you need to be conservative with your ammo
  • Wing snaps off when sharply turning at speeds above 700 km/h

History

The G.91 Small Sabre entered service with the Luftwaffe in 1962 after winning the 1953 NATO light tactical support aircraft competition. This competition had called for a fighter which could carry 452 kg of ordnance, patrol a combat radius of 180 km assuming 10 mins over the target, average cruising speed of at least 705 km/h and Mach 0.95 capability. It also had to be fully operational on grass or other types of unprepared runways, with a take-off distance of 1,100 m. The R/3 was the Luftwaffe's version of the G.91, but with more powerful armament, two wing points for suspended ordnance and better avionics than the Italian Air Force's R/1s. Fifty R/3s were built in Italy starting in 1959 and another 294 were license-built in West Germany. The Luftwaffe also received another 50 of the very similar R/4 aircraft after orders for Greece and Turkey fell through. The Luftwaffe also had 66 T-3 two-seat trainer models built of which twenty-two were built in Germany.

Media

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