Strike aircraft ideal for destroying ground targets. These aircraft carry the widest range of bombs and rockets along with powerful machine guns and autocannons. Currently, World of Warplanes features a branch of the Ilyushin heavily-armored attack aircraft of the Soviet tech tree.
Attack Aircraft are heavily armored planes relying on high-caliber guns, bombs and rockets to deal with enemy ground and water structures. Their mobility is more than sluggish even compared to heavy fighters, and they should be covered from enemy attacks if possible, even though most of them are in possession of a rear gun that automatically shoots aircraft in range. Nevertheless, an experienced attack aircraft pilot can take on multiple enemies himself, using his considerable firepower and ordnance to lure interceptors into deadly traps and off the altitudes where they perform best.
