General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat?

If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and maneuverability as well as the maximum speed forward and backward.

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:

  • Unlocks potent PzGr 40 APCR belt that are identical to the German 20 mm autocannons
  • Reasonably fast on flat paved terrain
  • Good acceleration

Cons:

  • The "Armor" is only barely adequate at stopping rifle caliber bullets, everything else will shred it
  • Only 8 rounds per magazine, which is quickly expended
  • Long reload for a small magazine
  • Individual shells don't do much internal damage upon penetration
  • PzGr 40 belt is a tier IV unlock in the modifications
  • Default belt is 50/50 API-T and HEF-T Shells
  • API-T struggles at longer ranges or even at slightly angled armor
  • Off-road is lackluster

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
