Pros and cons

Pros:

  • HEAT Shell with 400 mm of Penetration at 90°.
  • Autocannon coaxial.
  • Relatively low profile, compared to American counterparts.
  • Moderate armour.
  • Fuel tank armour surrounding frontal ammo rack, much like Cold War Russian tanks.

Cons:

  • No kinetic ammunition.
  • Very tall cupola.
  • Rear turret bustle is pretty much lathered with ammunition when filled.
  • Fuel tanks everywhere in hull, front and sides, which can be an issue without FPE.
  • The HEAT shell has random accuracy and damage, leading to overall disappointing performance compared to other HEAT-FS.
