Firepower[edit]

It carries a pretty good and varied bomb load, but the defensive guns are underpowered for a plane this size.

If you look in the hangar, there are four different options for guns, while there are only three listed here in the database. In the hangar, the second and third options are identical, which can be confusing. The difference is that the amount of ammo carried by two of the guns is different between the two options.


Maneuverability[edit]

Turning is phenomenal. Flying it is like butter. It feels light and nimble, much more so than any other bomber. That being said, it's definitely no speed demon, and the climb leaves a lot to be desired above 10k.


Fighting in the He 111H[edit]

The He111 was a great bomber, seriously. The problem is that in AH the He111 has to fend off fighters it normally didn't have to deal with (think Spit I vs Spit 16, or Yak 7B vs La7, or even P40C/E vs P51D). In the early stages of WWII, it had to fend off enemy fighters of less caliber (no pun intended) than it sees in AH on a regular basis. Plus, it usually had a swarm of 109's providing escort.

It's defensive armament is weak where it matters consisting mostly of 7.92mm machine guns. There is the option to add a couple of MGFF 20mms, one in the nose and another forward facing in the ventral gondola, however the guns ballistic properties and rate of fire are poor. Taking the 20mm package might protect you from attacks coming from your low 8 to 2 O'clock area, but you are very vulnerable from every other angle.

If you are attacked, try to keep your formation together, and not lose your drones. The enemy fighter is likely to end up coming in on your six o'clock, where you can concentrate the fire from all three bombers by using your "N" key to fire your guns. Its recommended you don't shoot until your opponent is at most 400 out, and when you do aim for the canopy, the 7.92mm is a small round, but the guns can put a lot down range and a PW or pilot kill is very possible.


Fighting against the He 111H[edit]

Fighting against the HE111 is pretty simple, Don't sit on his 6'oclock, but even then you can probably get away with it.
