Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Suspended armament

The Me 264 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 9 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (2,250 kg total)
  • 6 x 500 kg SC500K bombs + 3 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (3,750 kg total)
  • 4 x 1,000 kg SC1000L2 bombs (4,000 kg total)
  • 2 x 1,800 kg SC1800B bombs + 3 x 250 kg SC250JA bombs (4,350 kg total)

Defensive armament

The Me 264 is defended by:

  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, nose turret (750 rpg)
  • 1 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, front dorsal turret (450 rpg)
  • 1 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, rear dorsal turret (450 rpg)
  • 1 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, ventral turret (750 rpg)
  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, 2 x beam turrets (500 rpg)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using aircraft 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).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Deadly defensive armament.
  • Great payload.
  • Decent speed and acceleration .
  • Maneuverability is good.

Cons:

  • Gunners have so many deadzones.

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

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