Usage in battles
Describe situations when you would utilise this missile in-game (vehicle, pillbox, base, etc) The 9M133 is capable of easily destroying almost any enemy it may face with a single shot. Thanks to its high penetration and tandem-charge, it can even reliably destroy top-tier MBTs.
Pros and cons:
- High penetration
- Tandem-charge mechanism bypasses ERA protection
- High flight speed
- Can be fired on the move, and in very rapid succession
- Detonates in contact with obstacles (trees, fences, etc.)
