Survivability and armour

  • 70 mm Bulletproof glass in front of pilot.
  • 6 mm Steel plates behind the pilot's head.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The M.S.410 is armed with:

  • 4 x 7.5 mm MAC 1934 machine guns (500 rpg = 2,000 total)
  • 1 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon, nose-mounted (60 rpg = 60 total)

The four machine guns are arranged in bundles of two mounted in each wing. Each are armed with the same amount of ammunition, which means that all guns will fire with each other until empty. The Hispano 404 cannon is nose mounted, terminating at the prop spinner.

Usage in battles

The M.S.410 is a respectably balanced fighter, able to both turn and energy fight with reasonable performance in both roles. The typical French combo of 7.5mm MGs and 20mm Hispanio cannon though the spinner allows you to take on even the toughest of targets at your rank with little issue in landing hard-hitting knock-outs.

Some aircraft will be able to outrun you, such as the early German air superiority fighters, and others like the Japanese will be able to outturn you, but very few planes will be able to do both. Use this to your advantage to gain the upper hand in the furball.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Effective dive speed
  • Decent ammo count in armaments
  • Acceptable flat line speed

Cons:

  • Low amount of cannon rounds (60 rpg)
  • Low energy retention
  • Terrible low speed control
  • Extremely difficult to extinguish on-plane fires

History

As the M.S.406 began entering squadron service in 1939, engineers at Morane-Saulnier continued working on the design, aiming to improve it. Several changes were made to the base design, which included the replacement of the old wing design with a new one, increased and improved offensive capabilities and the replacement of the old retractable radiator with a fixed one, among others. The applied changes resulted in the new M.S.410 being able to achieve somewhat better performance than its predecessor, namely reaching a slightly higher top speed. Right after the M.S.410 entered production, France capitulated in June 1940, halting the production of the aircraft after the fifth machine was constructed.

Production of the M.S.410 was temporarily halted after the German occupation, but resumed shortly after under German supervision. Before France’s capitulation, an order for 500 M.S.410s was placed. Needless to say, this production quota was never met, even under German supervision. In the end, only around 70 examples of the M.S.410 were manufactured, most of which consisted of M.S.406 airframes being converted to the 410 standard. Even then, a large number of these machines were only partially upgraded to the 410 standard, leaving many examples as hybrid models.
