Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell us about the history of the development and combat using the weaponry and also about its features. Compile a list of air, ground, or naval vehicles that feature this weapon system in the game.

General info

Detailed view of the single-mount Type 92 auxiliary gun on the IJN Mutsuki while firing.

The Type 92 is the IJN's standard defensive 7.92 mm machine gun. It is found on many bombers as defensive turrets, and on certain ships as well. It is characterized as being one of the worst machine guns in the game, with a low rate of fire (600 RPM) and bad ballistics, as well as poor accuracy, it is not too good at doing its job. However, on lower tier dive bombers like the D3A1, this gun can work wonders. If shot into the engine of an aircraft, it will most likely start a fire, and it is very common for this to happen. The Incendiary power of the belts is often underestimated!

Available ammunition

Default: T/AP/Ball/AP/IAI/I - Great belt for setting fires when shot into the engine of an aircraft

Armored Targets: T/AP/AP/IAI/AP - Mediocre belt with AP shells to smash through bulletproof glass

AP-T: T/AP/T/AP - Great belt for scare tactics, use the tracers to scare off the enemy. (The more tracers they see, the more they think of Danger and Retreat!)

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against notable opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons


  • High incendiary potential
  • Capable of scaring off unsuspecting fighters


  • Poor Ballistics
  • Jams Quickly
  • Inaccurate
  • Slow Rate of Fire


Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-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 />.
