General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Main armament

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. Advise about how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Additional armament

Some tanks are armed with several guns in one or more turrets. Evaluate the additional weaponry and give advice on its use. Describe the ammunition available for additional weaponry. Give advice on about how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage. If there is no additional weaponry remove this subsection.

Machine guns

Offensive and anti-aircraft machine guns not only allow you to fight some aircraft but also are effective against lightly armoured vehicles. Evaluate machine guns and give recommendations on its use.

Usage in battles

Flanking and patience is key, Its stock APSDFS, even the unlockable one, cant go trough the frontal armor or mantlet on almost all Main Battle Tanks it will commonly found, requiring side shots or aiming for weak spots (the turret ring etc), however, this can be tricky as at its Battle Rating pretty much all vehicles are very fast in all aspects, so caution is required, especially having hull break, which it can easily get by being shot by heavy machine guns from the side.

Stick with teammates with dedicated tanks which can protect it from incoming shells, or hide and flank, like in bushes.

Pros and cons


  • Rapid-fire 40 mm gun with APFSDS
  • Shreds enemy tanks from the sides
  • HE-VT useful against helicopters
  • Very mobile
  • Low profile
  • Deadly in flanking manoeuvres


  • Susceptible to hullbreak
  • Speed not too impressive when compared to other top tier tanks
  • Slpprj m/01 modification with an ammo cost of 290 SL per round means emptying the magazine of 25 rounds cost 7250 SL


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: 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).


Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
