Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good field of fire for dorsal turret
  • Can carry 8 rockets in addition to the internal bomb bay
  • Internal bombay can accommodate 4 x 250 lb bombs and 6 x 100 lb bombs
  • Can fly on one engine
  • Forward-firing fixed guns means the ability to strafe soft targets (eg: unarmoured vehicles, artillery, AAA, etc)
  • Very fast for a bomber

Cons:

  • Low amount of gunners means vulnerable if they're knocked out
  • Controls lock quickly in a steep dive
  • Flaps tear off easily above 330 km/h
  • Only two fixed forward-firing guns

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
