Pros and cons

- Quick sustained rate of fire
- Generous selection of shells - 3 x AP shells, 1 x HE shell and 1 x APDS shell
- No shells with explosive filler
- No smoke shells to cover sniper spots or blind enemy tanks
- High-explosive shells are not useful against most enemies faced, unless they're open-topped vehicles
