Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Its deadly HE shells can finish anything with overpressure, like Panther II, Tiger II (H), M4A3E2 (76) W, etc.
  • Has a variety of shell types: HE, HEAT, HE-VT, APHEBC
  • Is turreted, allowing more flexible tactics
  • -14 km/h reverse speed is good enough to retreat into cover
  • Has a dozer blade to build a dirt cover
  • Has NVD for night battles

Cons:

  • Thin armour, any weapon larger than a MG is threatening
  • Poor -4° gun depression limits its ability in hilly terrains
  • Long reload time
  • Turret is huge, easy to get spotted and hit

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
