||As a single-seat, all-metal aircraft which first entered service in 1940, the D.520 fits the role of an interceptor/fighter. This aircraft is most effective when in a squad; while its flight characteristics may be considered mediocre, the fact that it sports a relatively well-armoured construction compensates. Its respectable 20 mm hispano cannon allows for reasonable firepower when paired with the 4 x 7.5 mm MAC machine guns, though keep your ammunition stocks in mind as they can run out fast! Considered on the heavier side of single-seat fighter aircraft, the D.520 can effectively out-endure enemy squads, as well as out-gun many other types of aircraft at its tier.
||With its classic Japanese aviational maneuverability, favourable armament placement, high speed, and agreeable turn and rolling rates, the Ki-100-II serves as a good fighter that can be flown in a variety of combat situations, as long as you are aware of its capabilities… and flaws. With minimal armour protection, the aircraft struggles to endure considerable fire, and additionally, its engine it prone to burning out when struck. Use its positive flight-characteristics to avoid fire and take advantage of its powerful armament placements (2 x 20 mm Ho-5 cannons and 2 x 12.7 mm Ho-103 machine guns) to tear your enemies apart before they do the same to you!
