50 cals in War Thunder are notoriously powerful for what is a heavy machine gun in a game where large calibre cannons exist!
In fact, this entire lineup consists of 3 vehicles with TWENTY 50 cals between them. That’s an average of 7.3 M2 Brownings per vehicle!
Gaijin recently buffed the .50 by giving it 30mm penetration on planes with the AP belt and an extra 1mm on planes with 31mm total!
So, today I take out the M16, A-36 Apache and SB2C Dauntless with gun pods for some extra BRAP!
