Flying the NC.900 tends to be very defensive and relies on neutralising an enemy's energy advantage and capitalising on the plane's advantages. Manoeuvres that work well include the Split-S, Chandelle and anything that requires a high rate of roll. One of these is to dive and roll in a single direction whilst applying rudder. This causes a very tight barrel roll that few aircraft can hope to gain a firing solution on. Another way to clear the NC.900's six is to pitch steeply up and roll over forcing an overshoot and potentially giving a firing solution. It's possible to dismember superior aircraft simply because of the roll rate and firepower this plane possesses. If skilled enough to press for a gun solution when scissoring an enemy, it could be greatly rewarded.

In summary, climb to the side, BnZ steadily, never get in a sustained turn fight, and use the roll rate to outgame the enemy when cornered.

Description

GarageImage NC.900.jpg


The NC.900 is a gift rank III French fighter with a battle rating of 5.3 (AB/SB) and 5.0 (RB). It was introduced during Update 1.75 "La Résistance" in the 2017 "Festive Quest" that took place from 22 December 2017 to 22 January 2018. It was obtained via collecting 13 pilot's Christmas toys.

The NC.900 is the identical, French version of the Fw 190 A-8 which features many of the same characteristics as the late Focke-Wulf Anton fighters.

General info

Flight performance

Survivability and armour

  • 57 mm Bulletproof glass in front of the cockpit.
  • 3-5 mm Steel plates in front of oil cooling system.
  • 6 mm Steel plate under the radial engine.
  • 12 mm Steel plate in pilot's headrest, and a 8 + 6 mm steel plates behind the pilot.
  • 8 mm Steel plate under the cockpit.
  • 5 mm Steel plate behind the fuel tank.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The NC.900 is armed with:

  • 4 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannons, -mounted (140 rpg outer + 250 rpg inner = 780 total)
  • 2 x 13 mm MG 131 machine guns, -mounted (400 rpg = 800 total)

The four cannons are arranged in bundles of two mounted in each wing. The two outer cannons have 110 less rounds compared to the two inner cannons and will run empty first. The two machine guns are mounted in the nose of the aircraft have the same amount of ammunition and will deplete at the same time if out of ammo.

Usage in battles

Flying the NC.900 tends to be very defensive and relies on neutralising an enemy's energy advantage and capitalising on the plane's advantages. Manoeuvres that work well include the Split-S, Chandelle and anything that requires a high rate of roll. One of these is to dive and roll in a single direction whilst applying rudder. This causes a very tight barrel roll that few aircraft can hope to gain a firing solution on. Another way to clear the NC.900's six is to pitch steeply up and roll over forcing an overshoot and potentially giving a firing solution. It's possible to dismember superior aircraft simply because of the roll rate and firepower this plane possesses. If skilled enough to press for a gun solution when scissoring an enemy, it could be greatly rewarded.

In summary, climb to the side, BnZ steadily, never get in a sustained turn fight, and use the roll rate to outgame the enemy when cornered.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great roll rate at all speeds.
  • Good energy retention (though somewhat poor compared to Spitfire LF Mk IX in the BnZ role).
  • Excellent high speed control.
  • Heavy armament, with plenty of ammunition.
  • Well armoured from the front, especially cockpit.
  • Small and rugged air-frame.
  • Has interceptor airspawn.

Cons:

  • Poor acceleration at all altitudes.
  • Poor turn time and energy retention in turns.
  • Poor control at low speed.
  • Rate of climb is mediocre.
  • Bad at altitude performance.
  • Very bricky to fly in general.

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).
