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
- Strong machine guns that can shred aircraft with a well-aimed burst
- Good mobility; accelerates quickly, fast on flat ground, and can turn in place unlike wheeled SPAA
- Fast turret traverse allows for easily tracking any aircraft
- Decently accurate while moving
- Machine guns can knock out some open-topped or lightly armoured vehicles
- Any armament above light machine guns (<7.92mm) poses a threat
- Vulnerable to explosive rounds and bombs dropped by aircraft due to it being open top
- Very light, cannot pull or tow most friendly vehicles
- Can easily be taken out by an aircraft with one well-aimed pass; the entire crew is exposed
- Cannot turn on the spot well, as it is a half-track
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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
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.
Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:
- topic on the official game forum;
- other literature.
