Description

GarageImage Sea Venom FAW 20.jpg


The Sea Venom FAW 20 is a Rank V British naval jet fighter with a battle rating of 8.0 (AB/RB/SB). This aircraft was introduced in Update 1.57 "Battle March".

The Sea Venom FAW.20 is a carrier-based jet fighter located in the British naval lineup after the Attacker FB 1 at the battle rating of 8.0. The Sea Venom has very good diving characteristics, good roll rate making it a notable defensive flyer, and decent speed characteristics for an 8.0 jet. It should be played as a Boom & Zoom aircraft, and it's very important to keep its speed up.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good turn time
  • Good roll rate
  • Able to land on carriers in case an airfield is not available
  • Good ammo supply of 600 rounds (150 RPG)
  • Good at defensive flying

  • Good acceleration
  • Retains energy well
  • Low compression at high speeds
  • Faster than most aircraft it faces when downtiered

  • Does not prepare you well for top rank combat (for new top tier pilots in air realistic battles)
  • Does not carry bombs or rockets (for tank realistic battles)

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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.
