Survivability and armour

  • 8mm Steel plate in the pilot's seat.
  • 8mm Steel plate under the pilot.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: ShKAS (7.62 mm)

The Yak-4 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.62 mm ShKAS machine gun, nose-mounted (500 rpg)

Suspended armament

Main article: FAB-100 (100 kg)

The Yak-4 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 8 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs (800 kg total)

Defensive armament

Main article: ShKAS (7.62 mm)

The Yak-4 is defended by:

  • 1 x 7.62 mm ShKAS machine gun, dorsal turret (750 rpg)

Usage in battles

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

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Excellent speed
  • Good climb rate
  • Decent maneuverability for a bomber
  • Possesses offensive armament, one centrally mounted ShKAS (7.62 mm) gun, coupling great accuracy with a superb rate of fire
  • Great cockpit visibility (SB)

Cons:

  • Very poor bomb load, will struggle at taking out armored targets (medium tanks, pillboxes, etc.), ineffective at base bombing
  • Poor energy retention, bleeds speed in turns
  • Vulnerable engines tend to overheat quickly at 100% throttle
  • Rear gunner cannot aim below 0°, rendering you harmless to any enemies under the plane
  • As with the Yak-2, pilot has little protection and can be knocked out easily

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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.

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:

  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

External links

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

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