NS-23 cannons are not capable of destroying medium or light tanks even with AP ammunition. This severely hinders the aircraft's ground attack capabilities, so it is best utilized as a multi-purpose aircraft similar to the [[B7A2|B7A2 Ryusei]]. However, it is worth noting that this aircraft wields the ability to carry a varied payload of both bombs and rockets. With proper aim, it is possible to destroy heavy tanks albeit very difficult as there is no bombing reticule. The "air targets" belt for the 23 mm cannons have the ability to demolish soft ground targets such as armoured cars and AAA units, but also retains the ability to destroy fighters and bombers alike with only a handful of rounds. Therefore, it can be beneficial to first attack the enemy's light defences and then if a teammate has been forced to a lower altitude by a pursuer, attempting to alleviate the stress of that pilot can be beneficial. Like the [[La-9]], the IL-10 (1946) has the ability to fire two of it's 23 mm cannons instead of four as the ammunition pools are separate. A good strategy is to use one set of 23 mm belts for attacking ground targets, and the other for destroying enemy aircraft.

If found in a sticky situation, the IL-10 (1946) pilot may choose to call for help or to "roll the dice" and use the 20 mm tail cannon. While it is effective, hitting the enemy at longer distances can be very difficult, especially without the "new 20 mm cannon (turret)" module upgrade. It is best to lure an enemy by turning and evading their fire and then lining them up directly with your tail cannon. It is possible to destroy the enemy aircraft with less than 10 shells if they are very close and the tail gunner is accurate. Another unorthodox method of using the 20 mm tail cannon involves a situation in which an initial pass on a ground target failed. Depending on how close the IL-10 (1946) is to the ground target, it is possible to destroy it from behind with the 20 mm tail gun. This is very difficult especially as the distance from the target increases.

Usage in battles

NS-23 cannons are not capable of destroying medium or light tanks even with AP ammunition. This severely hinders the aircraft's ground attack capabilities, so it is best utilized as a multi-purpose aircraft similar to the B7A2 Ryusei. However, it is worth noting that this aircraft wields the ability to carry a varied payload of both bombs and rockets. With proper aim, it is possible to destroy heavy tanks albeit very difficult as there is no bombing reticule. The "air targets" belt for the 23 mm cannons have the ability to demolish soft ground targets such as armoured cars and AAA units, but also retains the ability to destroy fighters and bombers alike with only a handful of rounds. Therefore, it can be beneficial to first attack the enemy's light defences and then if a teammate has been forced to a lower altitude by a pursuer, attempting to alleviate the stress of that pilot can be beneficial. Like the La-9, the IL-10 (1946) has the ability to fire two of it's 23 mm cannons instead of four as the ammunition pools are separate. A good strategy is to use one set of 23 mm belts for attacking ground targets, and the other for destroying enemy aircraft.

If found in a sticky situation, the IL-10 (1946) pilot may choose to call for help or to "roll the dice" and use the 20 mm tail cannon. While it is effective, hitting the enemy at longer distances can be very difficult, especially without the "new 20 mm cannon (turret)" module upgrade. It is best to lure an enemy by turning and evading their fire and then lining them up directly with your tail cannon. It is possible to destroy the enemy aircraft with less than 10 shells if they are very close and the tail gunner is accurate. Another unorthodox method of using the 20 mm tail cannon involves a situation in which an initial pass on a ground target failed. Depending on how close the IL-10 (1946) is to the ground target, it is possible to destroy it from behind with the 20 mm tail gun. This is very difficult especially as the distance from the target increases.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Forward-firing 4 x 23 mm cannons can do massive damage
  • Defensive 20 mm gunner with 300 rounds of ammunition for protection (won't always save you, but can bring down stupid enemy fighters reliably)
  • Accelerates rather quickly (useful for gaining distance from a failed ground strike)
  • Versatile payload of bombs and rockets
  • Highly armoured cockpit
  • Durable aircraft, can absorb damage
  • Good manoeuvrability for an attacker

Cons

  • Large aircraft, easy target
  • 23 mm are difficult to aim due to low muzzle velocity
  • Lots of armour plating in the cockpit, hinders visibility (if playing SB)
  • Cannot perform high-speed manoeuvres
  • Bleeds energy extremely quickly
  • Very slow roll rate
  • Low top speed, manoeuvrability and climb rate
  • NS-23 still does not have the penetration to damage medium tanks, even with API-T at optimal angles.
  • Almost no protection for the rear gunner

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).

Media

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