Description

GarageImage T-2.jpg


The Mitsubishi T-2 is a rank VI Japanese jet fighter with a battle rating of 10.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.87 "Locked On".

General info

Flight Performance

This jet, as of Update 1.87, is the fastest jet in the game. The manoeuvrability isn't a strength. The acceleration is comparable to the MiG-19, it is excellent but may not be the best at very low speeds. It has two AIM-9E for dogfights and some rocket and bomb loads. The 20mm Gatling cannon does take a learning curve to get use to because of a short .25 second spool time. This jet comes with radar assisted aiming.

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

Main article: JM61A1 (20 mm)

The T-2 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm JM61A1 cannon, chin-mounted (750 rpg)

Suspended armament

The T-2 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 7 x 500 lb LDGP Mk 82 bombs (3,500 lb total)
  • 5 x 750 lb JM117 cone 45 bombs (3,750 lb total)
  • 76 x FFAR Mighty Mouse rockets
  • 2 x AIM-9B missiles
  • 7 x 500 lb LDGP Mk 82 bombs + 2 x AIM-9B missiles (3,500 lb total)
  • 5 x 750 lb JM117 cone 45 bombs + 2 x AIM-9B missiles (3,750 lb total)
  • 2 x AIM-9B missiles + 76 x FFAR Mighty Mouse rockets
  • 2 x AIM-9E missiles
  • 7 x 500 lb LDGP Mk 82 bombs + 2 x AIM-9E missiles (3,500 lb total)
  • 5 x 750 lb JM117 cone 45 bombs + 2 x AIM-9E missiles (3,750 lb total)
  • 2 x AIM-9E missiles + 76 x FFAR Mighty Mouse rockets

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles 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).

Radars

Main articles: AN/APS-21, AN/APG-26

The Mitsubishi T-2 is equipped with an AN/APS-21 search radar, as well as an AN/APG-26 target tracking radar. Both radars are located in the nose of the aircraft.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Has a radar and radar gun sight, allowing you to better plan your "boom"s and get your rounds on target more reliably.
  • Extremely fast (current fastest aircraft in the game)
  • Devastating armament
  • High climb rate
  • 2 pilots (Not vulnerable to pilot snipes)
  • High acceleration
  • Manoeuvrable enough to get onto the target with relative ease.
  • Has a tail hook for landing on carriers
  • Has a braking chute, making landings on short airstrips or carriers possible
  • Strong ordinance options
  • Can equip 2 AIM-9B/AIM-9E missiles

Cons:

  • Burns through fuel at an astronomical rate in AB
  • JM61A1 electric powered cannon takes getting used to because of 0.25 second spool time to get the barrel spinning before firing commences
  • Poor energy retention
  • Extremely poor low speed manoeuvrablity, and the low speed of the plane mean lower than 500km/h
  • Requires good trigger discipline and aim as the gun burns through ammunition
  • Cannon tends to "spark"

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 === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

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

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.
