GarageImage Shenyang F-5.jpg


The Shenyang F-5 is a gift rank V Chinese jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.91 "Night Vision".

General info

Flight performance

Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The Shenyang F-5 is armed with:

  • 1 x 37 mm N-37D cannon, chin-mounted (40 rpg)
  • 2 x 23 mm NR-23 cannons, chin-mounted (80 rpg = 160 total)

Suspended armament

Main articles: OFAB-250-270 (250 kg), PL-2

The Shenyang F-5 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 2 x 250 kg OFAB-250-270 bombs (500 kg total)
  • 2 x PL-2 missiles

Usage in battles

It is best that once you take off, fly in a straight line and engage WEP, Once you achieve a high speed, climb. It is also advised for you to take the loadout with the two PL-2 Air-To-Air Missiles due to your low ammo count.

Modules

Tier Flight performance Survivability Weaponry
I Fuselage repair Compressor Offensive 23 mm
II New boosters Airframe Offensive 37 mm D-4-50
III Wings repair New 23 mm cannons
IV G-suit Engine Cover New 37 mm cannons PL-2

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Pros:

  • Hard hitting armament
  • Decent manoeuvrability
  • Access to decent AAM's
  • Faster than most jets it will encounter thanks to powerful afterburner
  • Difficult to break wings in turns
  • Effective airbrakes
  • Premium bonuses
  • Can completely change the tide of a game in the hands of a skilled pilot

Cons:

  • Flaps break above 530 km/h (330 mph)
  • Afterburner chews through fuel
  • Poor low speed manoeuvrability (below 355 km/h (220 mph))
  • Guns have low velocity and different shell arcs, requires learning time
  • Low ammo for guns
  • Will have to deal with Phantoms and other supersonic aircraft with better weapons and speed

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).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.

See 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.

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