Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • All critical components located at front of aircraft (fuel, pilot, engine, controls)

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MG 17 (7.92 mm)

The He 51 A-1 is armed with:

  • 2 x 7.92 mm MG 17 machine gun, nose-mounted (500 rpg = 1,000 total)

Usage in the battles

As a bi-plane the cockpit view offers only a restricted panorama and it is difficult to anticipate targets with a wing in your face. As with all bi-planes this characteristic tends to dissuade its use in SB. That said the He51 has a singularly good rate of climb in comparison to most other equivalent BR aircraft allowing it to play the energy tactic well. This is good because the He51 is a slow bird and has trouble catching virtually any other plane in level flight. However given its slow speed it also sports an exceptional turn radius allowing it to turn a death-spiral into a turkey shoot.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great turn radius
  • Exceptional rate of climb

Cons:

  • Fragile wings both to damage and high-G manoeuvres.
  • No artificial horizon in cockpit which can result in extreme disorientation in low-visibility conditions

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.

Read also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

Sources

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • page on aircraft encyclopedia;
  • other literature.
