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 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:

  • Powerful gun for a rank I tank
  • One of the smallest tanks in the game

Cons:

  • Due to having a crew of two, this means if only one crew member is knocked out then the tank is virtually disabled
  • Very slow, even for its small size
  • Has an open top, making the crew vulnerable to machine gun fire
  • Armour is practically non-existent and can be easily penetrated with heavy machine guns such as the Browning M2
  • Poor suspension damping, it takes about 2 seconds to settle after stopping the vehicle

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.
