General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Usage in battles

The MKPz M47 G tank is great for rushing the capture points in Realistic battles. Once there, fall back a little and find a good place for surveying the battlefield while looking for targets to snipe using your great HEAT rounds.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very good turret - most of shots will either bounce or non-pen it
  • The hull can't be penetrated by most of the tanks it faces; only a few tanks with high calibre cannons can penetrate it
  • Very fast turret rotation, even faster than some rank VII MBTs
  • It has a very potent gun with access to a variety of shells to use in any situation
  • Very good speed and turning ability
  • It has 12.7 mm mounted machine gun which is very an effective AA gun
  • Very good acceleration

Cons:

  • The hull machine gun port and the armour plates around it are deadly weak spots
  • Only -5° gun depression unlike most other American tanks
  • It has very good armour, but tanks with more modern shells can penetrate it easily (though this problem is not specific to the M47)

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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