Survivability and armour

  • Six total self-sealing fuel tanks located in wings

Armaments

Suspended armament

Main article: Bombs

The M.B.162 can be configured with the following payloads:

  • 6 x 100 kg №.1 bombs + 6 x 200 kg №.1 bombs
  • 4 x 500 kg №.2 bombs

Defensive armament

The M.B.162 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine gun, 2 x beam turrets (500 rpg = 1,000 total)
  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, dorsal turret (120 rpg)
  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, ventral turret (120 rpg)

Usage in the battles

The M.B. 162 is a heavy bomber, and therefore should be flown as such. When you start a match, you will want to climb to 5-6 km in altitude, to protect yourself from German fighters that will climb to intercept you, and mark out a bomb target to your team. With both of the payload options, all bombs are needed to destroy a bombing base.

  • HS.404 cannons have low ammunition count
  • No turrets protecting the front, perpendicular sides, or directly vertical.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
