General info

The Falcon in the Garage.

The Falcon is a Rank V British self-propelled anti-aircraft gun with a battle rating of 7.7. This vehicle was introduced in Update 1.57 "Battle March". While a normal anti-aircraft vehicle, the Falcon differs from other SPAAs of the tier with access to the APDS-T ammunition that can penetrate about 100 mm from a distance of 100 meters, making it a very lethal vehicle against the enemies if it catches them off guard.
