Performance

This plane is more of a multi-role. It can take down planes and also take down ground targets. It's armorment consists of four 7.62mm machine guns or two 7.62mm and two 12.7mm machine guns. It also has the option of mounting four rockets. These do 450 damage per rocket, so you may need two to destroy bigger ground targets. You will be stuck with this plane for a wile, since you have two 4,000 + planes to research. But, its a fun little plane to play
