Description

The M.B.175T is a rank III French bomber with a battle rating of 3.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.83 "Masters of the Sea".

Although called a "bomber", with its hard-hitting armament of two 20mm MG 151/20 cannons, this plane should be used in a more aggressive role as an attacker, or even a bomber interceptor. The HVAR rockets and the MG 151/20s make it a perfect counter to the much-feared BV 238.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles 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:

  • Has air brakes
  • Quite maneuverable for its size
  • 12 x HVAR rockets as basic payload
  • Armed with two powerful 20 mm MG 151 with a large ammo pool for each
  • One 20 mm MG 151/20 defensive turret to easily deal with enemies in its shooting range

Cons:

  • MG 151/20 is mounted in the wings far off the fuselage, requires adjustment of convergence for accurate hits on enemy
  • Turret is only good for enemies above the aircraft; large blindside due to plane's twin rudders
  • Flaps have a rather low speed limit before they tear off
  • Gunner is exposed
  • Does not have a ventral gunner, making it vulnerable to attacks from under

History

[1]The MB 175 was designed at the same time as the MB 174. However, whereas the latter was a long-range reconnaissance aircraft, the MB 175 was intended as a light bomber. The prototype flew on 3rd December 1939, with Daniel Rastel in the cockpit, and the first production aircraft, MB 175 B3 No. 101, was delivered in April 1940.

The GR II/52 was the first unit to equip with the light bomber which was used for reconnaissance purposes, as their Potez 63 and 63/11 were incapable of standing up to the Messerschmitt Me-109 E and Me-110. After equipping with the MB 175, the losses incurred by the GR II/52 were very few, thus confirming the remarkable qualities of this aircraft, which unfortunately arrived too late. After being transferred to North Africa, the GR II/52 was entirely re-equipped with MB 175 aircraft, which it kept until 8th November1942 when they were almost all lost during an attack by allied forces on the Oran-la-Sénia air base. The GR I/55 which was the last unit to receive the aircraft, received the first MB 176 aircraft available at the same time as it was equipping with the MB 175, before deploying to North Africa. The Germans were very interested in the aircraft and used several tens of them for training purposes.

In 1945, as the French Navy had ordered a hundred of the “torpedo bomber” version of the MB 175, production of the 175 T was launched at Châteauroux-Déols. As the aircraft became available, they were assigned to the 6 F squadron at Agadir. A few aircraft were used by 10 S squadron at Saint-Raphaël for various tests. The last MB 175 aircraft ended their flying careers at the Rochefort training school where the naval section retained their last aircraft until 1960.
