Survivability and armour

  • 40 mm Bulletproof glass in cockpit front.
  • 13.5 mm Steel plate in the nose.
  • 13.5 mm Steel plates behind the pilot.

Armaments

Main article: M50 (20 mm)

The M.D.450B Ouragan is armed with:

  • 4 x 20 mm M50 cannons (125 RPG = 500 total)

The four machine guns are clustered on the underside of the fuselage, directly below the pilot. Each are armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty.

The M.D.450B Ouragan utilize external pylons to carry various configurations of:

  • None
  • 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs
  • 2 x 1,000 lb AN-M65A1 Fin M129 bombs
  • 16 x T10 140 rockets
  • 16 x T10 151 rockets


Usage in the battles

The M.D.450B Ouragan is mainly a BnZ aircraft. It retains in vertical turns and BnZ maneuvers well. When you takeoff, gain speed. After gaining speed, you side-climb up to 2500 - 3000 meters then head to the center. When you're finally in the center, you've already gained speed by accelerating. Then, you commence BnZ tactics. Dive, engage, zoom up to 2500 - 3000 meters, loop around, look for a suitable target, rinse and repeat. If you find yourself in a bad situation where you can't use BnZ tactics, then your last resort would be turning.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good maneuverability
  • When spaded, adequate acceleration/climb rate for an 8.0 jet
  • Nose-mounted guns
  • Doesn't compress much
  • Downtiered often, very capable aircraft against 7.0 - 8.0 enemies
  • Strong and effective flaps
  • M50 20 mm cannons excel with "Air Targets" belts

Cons:

  • BR 8.0 means it faces top tier jets (MiG-15bis, MiG-17, CL-13A etc) that outclass it in most important aspects of flying
  • Stock performance is lacking
  • M50 20mm cannons tend to "spark" and are less effective at causing damage with "Default" ammo belts
  • Long queue times
