Tactics

The Me 410 B-6/R3, unlike it's predecessors, has two 30 mm cannons in addition to the regular 20 mm cannons found on any Me 410 (However, the 7.92mm machine guns have been removed). With the HVAP-T upgrades, the 30 mm cannons make short work of light pillboxes, light and medium tanks, and even heavy tanks if hit on the side or back. Your primary goal should be unlocking the (Tier III) 30 mm ammunition belts. The "Hornisse" is most well suited for bomber hunting, due to its heavy armament. The aircraft can even use BnZ tactics against other aircraft provided if there is enough altitude. If you are planning to do aerial combat, be sure to side climb, as the 410's climb rate is far from superior to the Spitfires and Bearcats you will face. It is also equipped with airbrakes, which is quite unusual for an aircraft of its size and role. As with any plane, it is unadvisable to attack a bomber by sitting on it's tail. It is advisable that you keybind the 20 mm and 30 mm cannons separately, if you are going for the CAS role it is well-suited for. Binding different buttons to fire the cannons separately can conserve alot of ammo, which you can discriminate between which caliber to use when going after heavily-armored or lightly-armored targets. When choosing to go for the Intercept role, it is important (though you do not need too) that you cue the 30 mm and 20 mm together, as it will make much more of a difference in the 1-3 seconds worth of a good deflection.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Is equipped with airbrakes, allowing for tighter turns and steeper dive angles
  • Devastating firepower, is able to rip through any aircraft or vehicle in a short burst
  • Extremely versatile, can switch between CAP and CAS roles effectively
  • Accelerates quite fast, especially in level flight
  • Radiator is covered with armor plating, reducing hits to the radiator
  • Propeller spinner has armor plating, which covers the engine from the front and is essential in survivability
  • Leading edges of the wing have armor plating
  • The defensive armament consists of 2 13 mm machine guns, which can effectively chew through any aircraft's engine block
  • The rear turrets have excellent coverage, almost covering all attacks from the rear of the aircraft
  • Tail gunner is difficult to hit from a level flight, he is also covered with a large armor plate
  • Ammunition is plentiful, sometimes you don't run out
  • Will cool down slowly even when the throttle is 100%
  • Does not lose a significant amount energy during maneuvers
  • Low speed maneuvering is impressive
  • MK 103 cannon projectiles have a high muzzle velocity, and even higher with HVAP-T rounds, giving you a significant advantage in head-on engagements.
  • MK 103 cannons are capable of destroying light pillboxes by default, and light/medium tanks with HVAP-T rounds. Heavy tanks can also be destroyed, but require extremely precise aiming.

Cons:

  • Large target
  • Limited pilot protection, pilot is not covered for his torso and chest
  • Rate of climb is impairing
  • Enters compressibility all too often when reaching 350 mph (563 km/h)
  • Lacks effective ground attack without 30mm HVAP
