Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • High maneuverability
  • High speed


Cons:


  • Low firepower
  • Low strength


Performance

The A4N is a standard representative of the Japanese branch with good maneuverability. It's Maneuverability is slightly worse than the Soviet representative, but the difference is negligible. Decent speed, however it is only above the American counterpart, the F2F. Its Weapons are relatively mediocre. The advantage is that all the weapons are one caliber, and it's more comfortable shooting.The combat Strength is low, but it is traditional for Japanese aircraft. As a result, we get a good enough plane for cornering fights, this style of play will continue in this line and more.

Get involved in a landfill, with distracted opponents. Sit on their tails, and stick away from those with rear gunners. Avoid frontal attacks in all cases.

In general, the Japanese aircraft line requires careful maneuvers.

You can mount outboard bombs for use on ground targets. Note that this slows down your mobilty a bunch until you offload them, so dump them quickly and get back to the fighting.
