There was no expected increase in speed compared to its predecessor, although the climb and range increased slightly. The aircraft also carried a larger bomb load and improved its ability to operate from shorter runways of field airports. The type was produced mainly because in the short term it was not possible to start production of aircraft of more modern design. In operation at field airports, where the machines spent almost continuously from late May to early October 1938, the wooden parts of the wings were wet, so the aircraft had a limited speed in descending flight to 300 km / h. In combat in suitable weather with the use of clouds, they could effectively serve during the day.
