Aug 29, 2019 @ 7:20pm how to get the FJ-4B VMF 232 I am so confused on how to attain this plane. Now outfitted with a more powerful engine, wing shape changed to provide more maneuverability and eliminated the leading edge slats and were reinforced to allow for four external pylons to allow for external fuel tanks, 500 or 1,000 lb bombs. The game is based around combined arms battles on air, land, and sea with vehicles from the Spanish Civil War to today. In the early 1950s, the US Navy realized during the Korean War that their straight-wing fighters were vastly inferior to the swept-wing MiG-15s they flew against. #warthuder #live_wt #workshop North American FJ-4 Fury VMF-232 Red Devils © 2010—2020 by Gaijin Entertainment. This aircraft was introduced in Update 1.79 "Project X". The FJ-4B VMF-232 was initially built as an interceptor and has the tools to do just that. The FJ-4B VMF-232 is a gift rank VI American jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.0 (AB/SB) and 8.7 (RB). The FJ-4 was a more aggressive approach compared to the FJ-3 with a much thinner wing and skin which was milled from solid alloy plates allowing for more strength, durability and aerodynamics. There are several factors going into why I feel the Bullpup AGM missiles for the FJ4B need their chase camera back, although perhaps not in the same form as it was. In regards to some maps, it is not always clear what the targets will be or if the match will end up fighter or bomber heavy. The clustering of the four cannons allows for some serious damage to be inflicted especially if it connects with critical components such as an engine, oil/water cooler, pilot, control surfaces or even a wing. To help conserve fuel, most of the protective armour was removed and the total ammunition count was reduced. While not a 100% guarantee to destroy an enemy aircraft after fired, they will usually cause the pilot immediately take evasive manoeuvres which at times may include energy haemorrhaging turns which may set up the aircraft an easy target for the FJ-4’s autocannons. Both the interceptor and fighter-bomber version of the FJ-4 served with the Navy and USMC until the early 1960s, before being phased out of active service and moved to the Naval Air Reserve. The FJ-4B's flight performance is a bit sluggish. Since you don't retain energy very well and you have poor acceleration, try to always manoeuvre with the enemy and if possible, shoot down enemy aircraft. The FJ-4B is not a very fast aircraft, at most you will see 880 kph at sea level. Rockets, while listed as “Folding-Fin Aerial Rockets” can be effectively used against ground targets, predominantly clusters of vehicles or aircraft landing on runways to repair or during domination matches. The FJ-4B is a rank VI American jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.0 (AB/SB) and 8.7 (RB). The armour on the aircraft is limited to a 12.7 mm steel plate behind the pilot’s seat and a 60 mm bulletproof glass in the windscreen of the aircraft. The fighter features four 20 mm autocannons and then can outfit several different ordnance to its underwing stores. All four 20 mm Browning-Colt Mk12 cannons were mounted in the nose of the aircraft around the air intake for the engine. All rights reserved. Due to the nature of this aircraft and the reduced ammunition load, the pilot must make every shot count or else they will be frequently waiting for a reload or heading back to base to reload. Fighter aircraft were flying much faster than aircraft a few years earlier and needed to have more manoeuvrability than ever before, one way to do this was to remove the guns from the wings and mount them in the fuselage. For the F4-J, wing-mounted guns would not work due to the fuel tanks already outfitted there. This reasoning is due to the unguided nature of the rockets, it may be easy for a target aircraft to avoid one or two, however, if 10 or more are fired, chances are the evading aircraft may actually manoeuvre into the flight path of one of the rockets. When base attacking, it is best to utilise the 1,000 and 2,000 lb bombs. ver1.79アップデートにて実装された、アメリカ空ツリーのランクVIジェット艦上戦闘機。名目上は戦闘機だが、本機は攻撃機型に改修された機体であるため爆弾やロケット弾等の爆装が豊富であ … And the game doesn't just use a plane from the same squadron, no. Though the F7U and F9F fighters were under development, they were not ready for deployment requiring the Navy to look elsewhere f… Without having to calculate convergence, the pilot is free to fire from effectively 0 m - +800 m and know the rounds will fly true. It is recommended that you attack primary ground targets like pillboxes and artillery positions. Fighter aircraft were flying much faster than aircraft a few years earlier and needed to have more manoeuvrability than ever before, one way to do this was to remove the guns from the wings and mount them in the fuselage. Also, due to the stronger wing of this fighter, a total of six underwing stations were available allowing for more ordnance to be carried. Even with modifications, the aircraft was unfit for carrier duty and was passed onto the US Marines for land-based duty. The armour on the aircraft is limited to a 12.7 mm steel plate behind the pilot’s seat and a 60 mm bulletproof glass in the windscreen of the aircraft. For the pilot in the heat of battle, the less they have to remember and do allows them to focus more on the situation at hand and shooting down enemy aircraft (or evade if you are being shot at). The FJ-4B can also sport either two or four AIM-9B Sidewinder missiles, increasing its effectiveness in air-to-air combat. This armour protection at best will help the pilot survive a pilot snipe, however, it will not do anything to protect the fuel tanks and jet engine which are all vulnerable to gun, rocket and missile fire. They looked to the Air Force’s F-86 Sabre as a stop-gap measure. The FJ-4B VMF-232 fighter has minimal armour to save weight, which allowed for more fuel tanks to be installed. It is recommended that you attack primary ground targets like pillboxes and artillery positions. Furthermore, the aircraft received air brakes under the aft of the fuselage, making dive bombing and landing easier. 4 x 20 mm Browning-Colt Mk12 Mod 3 cannon, 2 x AIM-9B Sidewinder air-to-air missiles. The fuselage was enlarged to allow for more airflow to reach the engine and the fighter was outfitted with AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles. The FJ-4B is an all-weather fighter/interceptor which includes multi-role capabilities also deeming it a fighter-bomber. When going against bombers, FFAR rockets can be highly effective, especially since they only need to explode close to the target and still can cause damage. Due to the weight of the air frame, it has poor acceleration compared to other aircraft at 9.0. The FJ-4B found in War Thunder is a solid multi-role aircraft which can fight air-to-air combat, ground-pound or both. Mighty Mouse rockets while small and unguided (aim, fire and forget) may seem to be a less effective choice, never underestimate them in large groups. < > Showing 1-12 of 12 comments . The FJ-4B VMF-232 can be outfitted with the following ordnance: In battle, you are a support aircraft or a ground attack aircraft. The FJ-4B VMF-232 found in War Thunder is a solid multi-role US Marine aircraft which can fight air-to-air combat, ground-pound or both. And the game doesn't just use a plane from the same squadron, no. It is not recommended to carry bombs on this aircraft as you do not have the bomb load to take out an enemy base. Of the original order for 221 FJ-4 Fury interceptors, the last 71 were modified into the FJ-4B fighter-bomber version. FFAR Mighty Mouse rockets make short work of ground targets, but also can be deadly against any of the bomber aircraft it may intercept.

The FJ-4B version most notably featured a strengthened wing, offering an increased payload by adding two additional hardpoints to each wing, bringing the total up from two to six.
