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

The J6K1 is armed with:

  • 6 x 20 mm Type 99 Model 2 cannons, wing-mounted (200 rpg = 1,200 total)
  • 2 x 13.2 mm Type 3 machine guns, wing-mounted (200 rpg = 400 total)

Suspended armament

The J6K1 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 4 x 60 kg Navy Type 97 Number 6 bombs (240 kg total)
  • 2 x 250 kg Navy Type 98 Number 25 bombs (500 kg 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:

  • Very good armament (best belts are universal/stealth for the 20mm and ground targets/universal on the 13mm)
  • Good climb rate, usually on par or above the best allied fighters except the A2D
  • Good turn, can pull up to 12G at high speed
  • Pretty fast for a Japanese fighter
  • Very good energy retention
  • Good acceleration
  • Good combat flaps

Cons:

  • A bit fragile due to lack of armour, pilot is very vulnerable too
  • Extreme lock up of rudder and ailerons
  • Vne (never exceed speed) is 780 km/h TAS
  • Can face early jets, the A2D is a common opponent too and can easily outrun you

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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