The aircraft gets 60 mm bulletproof glass in front of the pilot and 10 mm of steel behind the pilot. At top-tier, this will not save you from much damage. The plane gets self-sealing fuel tanks in the wings and over the engine.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the 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:

  • Has Access to R-3R, R-3S, R-13M, and R-60 anti-air missiles
  • Decent radar to slave R-60s
  • In a downtier, it can dominate hard with its gun and flight characteristics
  • Fast plane
  • Decent manoeuvrability at high speed
  • Ballistic computer for rockets

Cons:

  • Bad energy retention
  • Poor acceleration
  • Has to give up the gun for flare/chaff pod
  • Suffers in uptiers
  • RWR is only working in the rear, not all around

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
