Pros and cons

  • Mobility is decent due to being built on a Chi-Ha chassis.
  • Gun is able to effectively penetrate all contemporary tanks frontally.
  • Similar play style as the German Marder TDs, but with better gun depression.
  • Fully enclosed fighting compartments, no longer need to worry that much about getting strafed by planes.
  • 5 crew member, more survivability and faster loading speed.
  • Very viable vehicle in the matchmaking available to it.

Cons:
