Survivability and armour
- 70 mm Bulletproof glass in front of pilot.
- 6 mm Steel plates behind the pilot's head.
The D.371 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 the 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 tier with little issue in landing hard-hitting kills. 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.
