Usage in battles

In battle, the Magach 6C is best used as a flanker and/or a sniper. At range, the turret armour is usually effective against the kinetic rounds used at its BR and the vehicle's laser rangefinder let's you pick off targets at long range with your potent APFSDS. The Magach 6C can also be used as a brawler using its stabilizer and thermals to find the enemy first and deliver a clean shot. The vehicle is also well equipped to take down low-flying helicopters or aircraft with its machine guns although it's not recommended as this will expose your location to nearby tankers. Finally, this vehicle offers very good situational awareness as the laser warning system will warn you anytime a vehicle laser rangefinds or launches laser-guided ordnance at you, giving you enough time to get to cover and hide.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Effective protection against chemical shells
  • Effective firepower with APFSDS and laser rangefinder / warning system
  • Thermal imaging system for gunner
  • Extra protection on its UFP and turret thanks to the ERA, enhancing its survivability

Cons:

  • Relatively low mobility
  • Unreliable armour against APFSDS
  • Slower gun traverse rate than most of its competition at its BR

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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