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

Pros:

  • Good penetration - excellent Swedish 40 mm performance can make quick work of enemy light tanks as well as medium units if utilized correctly!
  • Very fast turret traverse and elevation rate (can reach 70°/s with an aced crew)
  • Stock belt alternates between AP and HE every other round, making it a very effective all-purpose belt
  • 240 RPM, only the Ostwind and AMX-13 DCA 40 is on par with the fire rate
  • Very nimble, its agility can get you safely around the battlefield

Cons:

  • Paper thin armour - very easy to be disabled or entirely knocked out by incoming HMG fire
  • Low ammo storage - quickly runs out of ammunition when engaging several threats
  • Along with the poor armour, the turret crew's heads are visible - making them easy targets for enemy machine gun fire
  • AP belt has lower penetration than the HE and stock belt, but has more post-pen damage

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

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