The '''N.C.223.3''' is a Rank I French heavy bomber with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in [[Update 1.73 "Vive la France"]].
  
 +
The N.C.223.3, as a derivative of the Farman F.220 plane model, looks strikingly similar to the [[F.222.2]] bomber, yet different as well. The biggest difference is the twin rudder on the tail that helps improve stability and yaw control. The plane's overall design was also made more aerodynamic as part of the improvement, the nose section is made a tad shorter, and the plane uses Hispano-Suiza 12Y-29 engines rather than the previous Gnome Rhone model. Defense armaments were also improved with two Hispano cannons as the rear ventral and dorsal turret armament.
 +
 +
The N.C.223.3 is made distinctive with its push-pull engine configuration, stacking the engine on each side in tandem for the effect where the forward engine "pulls" the plane while the rear engine "pushes" the plane. This lowered the amount of engines having to protrude from the wing, while keeping the engine centerline so that one failed engine in a side will not prevent the other to provide a similar thrust force.
 +
 +
In the default camouflage scheme, the N.C.223.3 is coated in the French standard aircraft tri-color camouflage, which consisted of ''Vert'' (Green), ''Brun Mat'' (Matt brown), and ''Gris Bleu foncé'' (Dark blue gray). The underside of the aircraft was painted in ''Gris Bleu Clair'' (Light blue gray). The French roundel is present twice on the left side, one on the N.C.223.3 fuselage and one on top of the wing. Final note of appearance is the French national tri-color markings on the tail plane and rudder.

GarageImage N.C.223.3.jpg


The N.C.223.3 is a Rank I French heavy bomber with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.73 "Vive la France".

The N.C.223.3, as a derivative of the Farman F.220 plane model, looks strikingly similar to the F.222.2 bomber, yet different as well. The biggest difference is the twin rudder on the tail that helps improve stability and yaw control. The plane's overall design was also made more aerodynamic as part of the improvement, the nose section is made a tad shorter, and the plane uses Hispano-Suiza 12Y-29 engines rather than the previous Gnome Rhone model. Defense armaments were also improved with two Hispano cannons as the rear ventral and dorsal turret armament.

The N.C.223.3 is made distinctive with its push-pull engine configuration, stacking the engine on each side in tandem for the effect where the forward engine "pulls" the plane while the rear engine "pushes" the plane. This lowered the amount of engines having to protrude from the wing, while keeping the engine centerline so that one failed engine in a side will not prevent the other to provide a similar thrust force.

In the default camouflage scheme, the N.C.223.3 is coated in the French standard aircraft tri-color camouflage, which consisted of Vert (Green), Brun Mat (Matt brown), and Gris Bleu foncé (Dark blue gray). The underside of the aircraft was painted in Gris Bleu Clair (Light blue gray). The French roundel is present twice on the left side, one on the N.C.223.3 fuselage and one on top of the wing. Final note of appearance is the French national tri-color markings on the tail plane and rudder.

Like its predecessor, the F.222.2, the NC 223.3 is a heavy hitting bomber with okay maneuverability at low altitude and low air speed, and can carry a staggering 52x50 kg bombs. Combined with its frequent presence in Ground Strike matches with only light vehicles, it will make short work of any (or even all) groups of armoured cars and AAA it crosses paths with. However, the ability to carry larger bomb loads later in its upgrade tree turns it into an exceptionally capable base killer, often time wiping out bases solo.

Pros:

  • The N.C.223.3 currently has the largest payload available from any other Rank I bombers, rivaling even Rank III and IV heavy bombers.
  • Engines away from the wing fuselage.
  • Addition of takeoff flaps make taking off from a airfield easier than in the F.222.
  • Durable.
  • Has two pilots.
  • Somehow fast, despite it's size.
  • Internal payload doesn't really affect it's performance except rate of climb.
  • Can potentially win games by outright destroying the airfields when played in groups.
  • Large wings but are not littered with fuel tanks.

Cons:

  • Low maneuverability at high speeds.
  • Massive target.
  • Poor acceleration.
  • Weak from the front.

  • No armour.
  • Tail design creates blind spots for gunners.
  • You need to invest a large amount of crew points to be effective in the N.C.223.3, especially the gunners and reload time.
  • Being a Rank I, it has a 0.3 multiplier for SL rewards, so you will find yourself in a hard time earning SL with the N.C.223.3, despite it being able to earn a lot of it by base bombing.

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.

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • page on aircraft encyclopedia;
  • other literature.
