It was designed to have better performance than its predecessor, the SM.91. The middle gondola was eliminated and the cockpit for the crew of two, the pilot and the gunner, was moved behind the left engine. The gunner remotely operated a fixed 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine gun located in the aircraft's tail.

It has been made much more aerodynamic with the removal of the gondola on the SM.91 and the moving of the crew to the left fuselage, behind one of the 2 powerful Daimler-Benz 605A1 engines. Part of this improvement is also due to the change on the defensive armament, changing from a 20 mm cannon with a decent traverse to an aerodynamically mounted fixed 12.7 mm Breda-Safat

Description

The SM.92 is a rank IV Italian attacker with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/RB) and 4.3 (SB). It was introduced in Update 1.87 "Locked On".

The SM.92 is an Italian twin-engine fighter/bomber prototype designed and produced in 1943. It utilized two imported German Daimler-Benz 605 engines. It was designed to have better performance than its predecessor, the SM.91. The middle gondola was eliminated and the cockpit for the crew of two, the pilot and the gunner, was moved behind the left engine. The gunner remotely operated a fixed 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine gun located in the aircraft's tail.

The SM.92 had an armament complement of three 20 mm MG 151 autocannons and four 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns.

In-game this plane can reach over 16 m/s in climb rate and with its air spawn, that is enough to get a sufficient altitude above most fighters once the engagements start.

The SM.92 has a better performance than its predecessor, despite the engines staying the same. It has been made much more aerodynamic with the removal of the gondola on the SM.91 and the moving of the crew to the left fuselage, behind one of the 2 powerful Daimler-Benz 605A1 engines. Part of this improvement is also due to the change on the defensive armament, changing from a 20 mm cannon with a decent traverse to an aerodynamically mounted fixed 12.7 mm Breda-Safat

This plane also has leading edge slats, which help it on its roll rate (as they get deployed on one wing when doing a roll manoeuvre) and its low speed performance.

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:

  • Lots of guns that can be brought to use

Cons:

  • Defensive turret is almost fixed (only ±2° in each direction); the target has to be at exact 6 o'clock to be engaged
  • Bad rate of acceleration even when diving

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).
