Description

Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell about the history of the devekopment and combat using of the weaponry and also about it's features. Make a air or ground vehicles list on which this weapon is installed in our game.

Vehicles equipped with this weapon

General info

Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the cannon or machine gun.

Available shells

Describe the shells that are available for the cannon and their features and purpose. If it iconcerns autocanons or machine guns, so write about different ammo belts and what is inside (which types of shells).

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns, that have firepower equal to these type of weapons.

Usage in the battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against the main opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.

Pros:

  • Filled with a lot of HE filler, giving each impacting shell a serious punch
  • Comes as an upgrade to both motorcannons or as gunpods on the later BF 109 G series
  • Decent rate of fire for it's caliber at 600 RPM
  • Decent ammo capacity
  • Excellent against bombers, heavy fighters and other large targets

Cons:

  • Slow muzzle velocity and poor ballistic coefficient makes it hard to use at targets beyond 500 meters
  • Not ideal for dogfighting as it requires a lot of lead angle.
  • In a high speed chase, shells may fail to detonate on target, doing little to no damage
  • Absolutely zero effectiveness against armour.
  • Heavy recoil which can be dangerous if in a low energy state.

Historical part

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of this weapon. If the historical reference turns out to be big one, take it into a separate article and add a link to it by using the "main" template. In the end be sure to include references to sources.

Media

An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.

Read also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,

  • reference to the article about the variant of the cannon/machine gun;
  • references to approximate analogues by other nations and research trees.

ETC.

Sources

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum
  • page on the Wikipedia
  • page on aircraft or gorund forces encyclopedia
  • other literature
