?This plane feels just like the AO 192 and you'll just ease right into it. It ditches the 7.92mm machine guns for a pair of 20mm auto cannons and one 20mm for the rear gunner. It upgrades from the smaller SC 50 bombs to the bigger SC 100. Overal, it's a more potent heavy fighter and should be played as so: High altitude dives along with head ons will be your best bet for taking on aircraft. Your forward firing cannons will tear a new one to anything in front of them. Your bombs can be used to take out pesky AA batteries. Your health is massive too, having more than the next two tiers higher of heavy fighters. Your problems come into play when fighters get on your tail. Since you see tier 4 too, the A6M1 and the BF 109's high powered guns will cut you down if you aren't careful. Let your teammates handle them if you are being followed rather than relying on your tail gunner. Do not maneuver with more agile aircraft or you will get cut to ribbons. +This plane feels just like the AO 192 and you'll just ease right into it.
