Usage in battles

The Pbv 301 shall be used mainly as an SPAA. Its cannon with its pinpoint accuracy and a high rate of fire for its BR along the slsgr m/42 HEFI-T belt prove devastating to deal with low-flying planes and bombers. During a game, it is recommended to stay within the confines of your spawn and scout the skies for any aircraft. The high muzzle velocity and rate of fire make this vehicle effective against aircraft at medium ranges.

In an anti-tank role, the Pbv 301 is only effective against light tanks and SPAAGs, as the armour of most tanks at its BR is thick enough to resist 20 mm cannons shells. It is therefore not recommended to play this tank offensively.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Fully-enclosed design, granting the crew a higher chance of survival.
  • Equipped with smoke grenades
  • Low profile
  • Adequate mobility
  • Good rate of fire

Cons:

  • Little armour, effective only against machine gun fire
  • Only 2 crew members, very low chance of surviving a penetration shot.
  • Limited elevation angle
  • Long reload time
  • Limited belt capacity
  • Confined to a strict AA role, inadequate against ground forces

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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