Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Akan m/45 (12.7 mm)

The J26 is armed with:

  • 6 x 12.7 mm Akan m/45 machine guns, wing-mounted (270 rpg outer + 270 rpg middle + 500 rpg inner = 2,080 total)

Suspended armament

Main article: m/37a (50 kg)

The J26 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 2 x 50 kg m/37a bombs (100 kg total)

Usage in battles

The J26 preforms identically to the P-51D-30, as that's exactly what it is- a P-51D-30 with blue paint.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Outstanding Boom & Zoom capability - strictly limit turning manoeuvres
  • Great performance at altitude
  • Very fast at all altitudes, especially with a leveling-out dive
  • Very agile at high speeds
  • Good cockpit visibility
  • Plenty of ammo
  • Fantastic top speed and acceleration when spaded
  • Very good sustained climb rate when spaded
  • Has a super high rip speed for a prop plane
  • G-Suit is researchable

Cons:

  • Water will (eventually) run too hot if on 100% throttle, leave at 99% instead
  • Overheats very quickly while using WEP, use very liberally
  • The fantastic Swedish 20 mm Akan from previous aircraft is missing, limiting firepower

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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