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
- Very powerful 120mm gun; can even penetrate the Maus at some points.
- Reasonably fast.
- Has an MG-151 for a coaxial weapon.
- Great armor on the front slope plate (upper glacis).
- Immense spalling from the AP shells; head-on insta-kills are very likely.
- Good mobility.
- Rangefinder logs range very quickly
- No turret; vulnerable to getting flanked.
- Longer reload than the AMX-50 Surbaisse.
- Limited ammo choices.
- AP shells will have a hard time killing some opponents from the side.
- Very thin side armour
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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under
=== Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the series of the vehicles;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
