Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against notable opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • HEF-I rounds can shred fighters in less than 3 seconds, in the hands of a skilled pilot
  • AP rounds can penetrate light pillboxes

Cons:

  • "Default" belt contains practice shells which deal far less damage than other ammunition belts
  • HEFI and HEF-SAPI rounds do more puncturing damage compared to other countries' cannons due to possessing lesser amounts of filler
  • "Air targets" ammunition belts are less effective against bombers, instead, utilize Stealth or Ground targets ammunition
  • Cannons quickly overheat when repeatedly fired for long periods of time
  • Initially cannons are quite inaccurate until they are upgraded

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-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 />.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
