The M1128 Wolfpack's narrow profile turret provides a significant advantage in combat situations. The vehicle may face challenges in terms of survivability due to its thinner armour and the relatively close proximity of its crew members. In certain circumstances, the tall vehicle profile can be a disadvantage because it restricts the vehicle's ability to take cover and remain hidden, leaving it more open to enemy fire.

Armour type:

  • High-hardness rolled armour (hull, turret, gun shield, underbody, spaced armour)
  • MEXAS 2C (applique armour on hull and lower turret)
  • Rolled homogeneous armour (turret roof, engine vent, gunner optics shield)

Target identification is effortless thanks to third-generation thermal imaging technology integrated into the gunner, commander, and driver optics. On some maps, such as those where you are engaging targets on uneven terrain, the limited gun depression and elevation is a significant disadvantage.

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


  • Narrow profile turret
  • High resolution thermal sights
  • High forward mobility


  • Low survivability
  • Tall vehicle profile
  • Bad gun depression and elevation
  • No access to top tier ammunition


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
