Survivability and armour

Protective components found in the J21RA.
  • 10 mm steel - Firewall armour plate
  • 10 mm steel - Firewall cover armour plate
  • 10 mm steel - Pilot's back armour plate
  • 60 mm bulletproof glass

Armaments

Offensive armament

The J21RA is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm Akan m/45 cannon, nose-mounted (140 rpg)
  • 2 x 12.7 mm Akan m/39A machine guns, nose-mounted (350 rpg = 750 total)
  • 2 x 12.7 mm Akan m/39A machine guns, wing-mounted (325 rpg = 650 total)

Usage in battles

One way to operate this aircraft is to zoom climb up to about 2.5k-3k meters and then drop on a low and slow jet. Staying on someones tail is very easy with this plane and its defensive flying is quite effective.

Modules

Tier Flight performance Survivability Weaponry
I Fuselage repair Offensive 20 mm
II New boosters Compressor Airframe Offensive 12 mm
III Wings repair Engine New 20 mm cannons
IV G-suit Cover New 12 mm MGs

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good turn rate compared to other jets
  • Decent armament
  • Good low-speed performance when utilising flaps

Cons:

  • Slow for a jet
  • Climb might be the worst in comparison to others in its battle rating
  • Bad energy retention

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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

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

  • 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.
