Survivability and armour

  • 50 mm Bulletproof glass in front and rear of the cockpit.

Armaments

Offensive armament

The VB.10-02 is armed with:

  • 4 x 20 mm Hispano 404 cannon (150 rpg = 600 total)
  • 6 x 12.7 mm M2 Browning machine gun (400 rpg = 2,400 total)

The six machine guns and four cannons are arranged in bundles of two mounted in each wing. Each of the cannons contains the same number of rounds and each of the machine guns respectively contains the same number of rounds, however, if fired continuously, the cannons will run out of ammunition before the machine guns will.

Usage in the 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 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).
