Pros and cons
Summarise and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.
- High penetration power
- High muzzle velocity
- Good post-penetration damage
- Nearly all French vehicles fitted with this gun make use of an autoloader, meaning a very short reload time
- Limited ammunition choice, with the HE shells being pretty useless at this battle rating.
- Long reload for vehicles without an autoloader
- Ammunition runs out very quick and loading the autoloader takes a lot of time
