The options available for the Me 410 B-1/U2 are:

  • Without load
  • 4 x Wfr.Gr.21 rockets

Defensive armament

Main article: MG 131 (13 mm)

The Me 410 B-1/U2 is armed with:

  • 1 x 13 mm MG 131 machine gun, 2 x beam turret (500 rpg = 1,000 total)

Usage in the battles

This airplane is great for conquering airbases, because you can use it to approach very close to the ground and very, VERY fast up to the very last moment. This is because of the "Hornisse"'s effective airbrake. When running towards the runway, don't hesitate to put the pedal to the metal up to really shortly before touch-down, then push off the airbrake, gear and all flaps (in that order). Ignore all warning and try to touch-down with about 200-240 km/h.

It is also suitable of chasing all sorts of bombers. Due to it's heavy nose armament, taking down nearly any enemy is just a matter of seconds.

Your greatest advantage, however, is the planes' speed, certainly not it's maneuverability. Never forget that!

For this reason, always try to get into power fighting when it comes to take on with single-engined enemies. Try to stay in a group. Your defense weaponary will serve you as well as it will your allies.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • The ME 410's fuselage is quite durable and withstands a good punch.
  • It's defensive armament, once fully installed, is remarkably effective, especially when it comes along with a skilled crew
  • It can reach amazing high levels of speed within it's class, which is especially effective in a bomb run or when fleeing the enemy

Cons:

  • Like most twin-engine planes, the "Hornisse" is not as maneuverable as a single-engined fighter
  • When pulling her up, she loses speed extensively

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, 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 series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

  • other literature.
