General info

The M50 Ontos in the garage.

The 106 mm Multiple Self-propelled Rifle M50, also known by the nickname Ontos, is a Rank V American tank destroyer with a battle rating of 6.7. It was introduced in Update 1.71 "New E.R.A".

The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The M50 "Ontos" is pretty much a bulky carrier of recoilless rifles, carrying a payload of six shells of devastating HEAT and HESH shells. With six launchers pointing forwards, a well-emplaced M50 can point itself downrange and once a target comes into its sights, unleash all shells until the target is annihilated.

A stealthy and pouncing game style is needed to make the most of the hard-hitting guns and the thin armour of the Ontos.

Tactics

Specific enemies worth noting

Counter-tactics

When facing the 106mm Multiple self-propelled rifle M50, make sure you get the first shot off. A single shot will more than likely put the M50 out of action.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 6 recoilless 106mm rifles - That's 3 - 6 kills per load.
  • The guns can be fired within 0.5 seconds of each other, guaranteeing a kill.
  • Stock shells of HEAT and HESH.
  • 4 heavy MGs - Spotting and anti-air.
  • 33 mph/53 kph nice speed, can get to ambush or sniping positions early game or rush cap.

Cons:

  • No armour whatsoever (can be easily destroyed by heavy MG rounds or via air strafing).
  • Only 18 rounds - Can't miss at a range.
  • Only 2 crew members - One shot is most likely to put you out of action.
  • Ammo is nicely grouped in the back for any Ru 251 or other flanker. Secure your flanks.
