Description

Pretty much every tank in the game will be able to destroy the PT-76B with relative ease due to the ultra-thin armour of it. Avoid tanks with access to heavy machine guns on their turrets such as most American tanks, the IS-2 (1944), etc.

Also, keep well clear of enemy SPAA. 12.7 mm guns and above will absolutely wreck this tank. In particular, the Wirbelwind is a big threat. It has good penetration at range and will literally saturate the vehicle with autocannon shells. Just a short burst from the quad 20 mm guns will finish the PT-76B off.

Armour type:

  • Rolled homogeneous armour
  • Cast homogeneous armour (Gun mantlet)

Give the reader information about the characteristics of the main gun. Assess its effectiveness in a battle based on the reloading speed, ballistics and the power of shells. Do not forget about the flexibility of the fire, that is how quickly the cannon can be aimed at the target, open fire on it and aim at another enemy. Add a link to the main article on the gun: {{main|Name of the weapon}}. Describe in general terms the ammunition available for the main gun. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

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

Pros:

  • Powerful HEAT can frontally penetrate even heavily armoured tanks like Tiger II (H), Ho-Ro, Ferdinand
  • Two-plane gun stabiliser is a huge advantage in sudden encounters and CQC
  • Has night vision device, another advantage in night battles
  • Is amphibious, allowing it to drive in bodies of water for surprise attacks
  • Has a low profile

Cons:

  • Extremely thin armour cannot protect it from any hit, especially SPAA (eg. ZSD63, Wirbelwind)
  • HEAT shell has limited damage, increasing the chance of the target surviving a hit
  • APHE has low penetration (100mm max), limiting target selection
  • Low mobility for a light tank, other light vehicles (eg. M24, Concept 3, M18) all have superior speed
  • -7 km/h reverse speed is poor, can put the player in a dangerous situation
  • -4° gun depression severely affects its performance among hills

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).
