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

Playing like the average Main Battle Tank should suffice. Compared to most tanks, the frontal armor and turret are better protected, meaning the tank can played more aggressively. Hiding the lower mantlet is still required to avoid opponents exploiting a weak point.

Pros and cons


  • A very well armored MBT with even less weakspots
  • There is a thick layer composite armor covering the roof
  • The Upper Frontal Plate is no longer a weakspot to shoot at
  • Good speed and maneuverability
  • Access to DM33, a very high penetrating APFSDS shell
  • The second top-tier MBT ingame with powerful HE shells


  • Unlike CV90120, it doesnt have the very powerful 120 mm CTG cannon or either the its powerful shells
  • Lower frontal plate is still a weakspot
  • Turret ring is the main target for enemy tanks
  • Doesn't have very effective AA capabilities


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).
