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.

  • 60 mm bulletproof glass - in front of the pilot (inside aircraft)

Armaments

Offensive armament

The Me 410 B-6/R3 is armed with:

  • 2 x 30 mm MK 103 cannon, chin-mounted (120 rpg = 240 total)
  • 2 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, fuselage-mounted (350 rpg = 700 total)

Defensive armament

Main article: MG 131 (13 mm)

The Me 410 B-6/R3 is armed with:

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

Usage in battles

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.

Radars

Main article: FuG 202

The Me 410 B-6/R3 is equipped with a FuG 202 search radar, located in the nose of the aircraft; a control box which is part of the radar damage model is located behind the pilot.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Has access to a target detection radar
  • 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

  • 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
  • No payload options

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 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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

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