Survivability and armour

  • 38 mm bulletproof glass - armoured windscreen
  • 8 mm steel behind pilot's head
  • 6.35 mm steel behind pilot's body

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Browning M2 (12.7 mm)

The Martlet Mk IV is armed with:

  • 6 x 12.7 mm Browning M2 machine guns, wing-mounted (240 rpg = 1,440 total)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

As a premium aircraft grinding for upgrades is not necessary. Only the "Mark of excellence" can be unlocked. It will grant the ability to place and show four decals without having a premium account.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good manoeuvrability
  • Fair roll rate
  • Dense and hard hitting firepower
  • Good pilot protection
  • High Vne(Never exceed speed)
  • Superb elevator authority at all speeds

Cons:

  • Low ammunition pool
  • Bad cockpit rear visibility (SB)
  • Cannot carry extra ordnance (i.e. bombs)
  • Horrible energy retention
  • Awfully slow
  • Abysmal climb rate
  • Poor performance at altitude

History

The Royal Navy purchased 220 F4F-4s adapted to British requirements. The main difference was the use of a Wright R-1820-40B Cyclone in a distinctly more rounded and compact cowling, with a single double-wide flap on each side of the rear and no lip intake. These machines were named Martlet Mk IV.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
