Comparison with analogues
- Germany - KwK30 (20 mm)
Usage in battles
While the TNSh (20 mm) may seem less appealing than its German counterpart (KwK30 (20 mm)), it is still useful if used correctly. Get close to your enemies, as the penetration of this gun is very low, only 27 mm at point-blank range. After using up all your ammo, be sure to find a secure spot to take cover in, as your reload time is extremely long. It is best to have some teammates with you to provide cover while reloading. Another way to use this gun is to act as a SPAA. A few shots will send most planes back to the hangar.
Pros and cons
- Very high ammunition count - 58 shells per belt
- Can be used as an SPAA due to the high rate of fire and high ammo count per belt
- Extremely long reload rate of 26 seconds
- Gun lacks penetration and post-penetration damage
- Inferior in almost all aspects compared to the German KwK30 20 mm
