Survivability and armour

  • 15 mm steel - engine cowling
  • 5 mm steel - under cockpit
  • 5 mm steel + 8 mm steel - behind pilot
  • 20 mm steel - pilot's headrest
  • 70 mm bulletproof glass - armoured windscreen

Armaments

Offensive armament

The Ta 152 H-1 is armed with:

  • 1 x 30 mm MK 108 cannon, nose-mounted (90 rpg)
  • 2 x 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon, wing-mounted (175 rpg = 350 total)

Usage in the battles

The Ta-152 H-1 is a designated high altitude fighter with a great wing area and good manoeuvrability, unlike its heavier brethren the Ta 152 C-3.

Fly high, preferably at >10km (32000ft) since the engine is more effective at those altitudes.

There is a noticeable change above 3800m where the engine starts providing more power however it is generally not sufficient to make the plane superior to the aircraft it generally fights, so do not rely on it. Most players use this aircraft as a "Boom and Zoom" although it is possible to dogfight with aircraft that have at least one disadvantage (e.g. P51 - Lower Roll Rate at low speeds and Climb Rate above 4000m relative to the Ta 152) so tactics vary.

Not advisable to tackle more than one enemy at once.

Do not dogfight Russian FW 190 D premium, or the Bearcat as there is practically nothing you can do.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 30 mm cannon usually obliterates enemies upon impact.
  • Stable in all axis (joystick).
  • Unstable when ~400km/h and turn(mouse aim).
  • Can out-climb the P-51 D at high altitude.
  • Good performance above 7000 m.

Cons:

  • 30 mm cannon is low-velocity, making it hard to hit.
  • Has a tendency to snap roll viciously.
  • Average roll rate, which is made significantly worse by pitching up/down
  • Somewhat slow on low to medium altitude.
  • Poor wing lift to weight ratio, and hence poor turning ability, equal to Tempest Mk.V.
  • Poor parasite drag to thrust ratio, meaning a lot of energy is lost in diving attacks.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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