M10 (37 mm)
|This page is about the aircraft cannon M10 (37 mm). For other uses, see M10 (Disambiguation).|
The M10 autocannon was a minor improvement of the earlier M4. It had an improved fire rate of 165 rpm and used a disintegrating link belt. The disintegrating link belt made it possible to increase the amount of ammunition on the Bell P-63 Kingcobra from 30 rounds to 58. The M10 was fitted on the Kingcobra starting with the A-9 model. In-game, the first version of the Kingcobra to be equipped with the M10 is the P-63A-10.

- HE shells do significant damage to single engine aircraft
- Inaccurate in full auto, should be restrained to single shot
- Still useless AP shell
- HE shell doesn't do well against large framed aircraft, often requiring multiple hits
- Slow muzzle velocity
