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.

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


  • Superior manoeuvrability at all speeds
  • Good energy retention at higher speeds (above 850 km/h)
  • High top speed at low altitudes
  • Good climb performance
  • Low stall speed
  • Deadly 30 mm cannons


  • Bleeds energy quickly at lower speeds (below 750 km/h)
  • Relatively low maximum fuel load - Thirsty afterburner
  • Wings will rip with roll and elevator input at transonic speeds
  • Wide gun placement
  • Only has unguided rockets for CAS
  • Lacks countermeasures: no flares or RWR
  • Missiles are easily avoidable by enemies


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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


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