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

The J20 does not have any armor, like its counterpart, the Re.2000 serie 1. However, it does have 2 self-sealing fuel tanks underneath the pilot.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Breda-SAFAT (12.7 mm)

The J20 is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Akan m/40 machine guns, nose-mounted (300 rpg = 600 total)

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:

  • Great climb rate (20+ m/s)
  • Great at energy fighting
  • Good acceleration (Capable of 700 kph / 435 mph in a dive)
  • Good turn rate, amazing at 400 to 500 kph (248 to 310 mph)
  • Full manual engine control + propeller feathering

Cons:

  • Average speed (450 IAS)
  • Average roll rate at any speed
  • Underwhelming performance of the 2 x 12.7 Akan m/40 machine guns
  • Low ammunition count for machine guns (only 600 rounds total)
  • Overheats easily, even with 100% radiators, can only WEP for a few seconds before the engine overheats and destroys itself
  • Sensitive to battle damage (damage will usually result in the aircraft catching fire)

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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

See 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.

External links

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

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