Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Access to APFSDS ammunition.
  • Access to very good AGTM.
  • One of the few top tier tanks with APHE, great for sideshots (Often One-Hit Kill).
  • Battle Rating of 8.7 means it wont face top tier tanks, and is often top dog in 7.7-8.7 matches
  • Respectable mobility.
  • Decent Armour, especially vs Chemical Munitions.
  • Roof Mounted DShK 12.7mm MG is great for taking out low flying Helicopters.

Cons:

  • Armour is completely ineffective against APFSDS and 120mm APDS.
  • Below average Reload Time for it's BR, many enemies will have a faster reload.
  • Poor reverse speed.
  • The Rheinmettal 120mm's HEAT-FS and most hih-pen ATGM's will go clean through its armour.
  • Mobility, although decent, is worse than most of the enemy tanks you face.
  • Still will face 9.7 Tanks, like the Challenger Mk.2 and AMX-40, which outmatch you in every category.
  • Ammo stored all around the Hull, a penetration will most likely result in an ammo detonation.
  • Rather Weak APFSDS compared to the other ones, will have trouble in uptiers.
