Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Really good composite armour.
  • Best APFSDS shell in the entire game, able to penetrate all tanks from very far.
  • Outrageous 5 second autoloader and best reload speed combined with best shell: perfect king of the battlefield.
  • Great mobility.
  • Great acceleration for both forward and reverse speed.
  • A bit smaller than the Leopard 2A4. A little harder to hit at long range.

Cons:

  • Lacks composite armor on lower front armour plate, plus combined with the presence of shells in the front of the tank, a direct hit will quickly take it out.
  • Hydropneumatic suspension adjustment takes time and requires the tank to be stationary.
  • Lower general survivability than the Leopard 2A4 due to the crew of 3. A good hit and the tank is out.
