Description

GarageImage YaG-10 (29-K).jpg


The YaG-10 (29-K) is a Rank III Soviet tank destroyer with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.67 "Assault".

This unarmoured truck is equipped with a good fast-firing 76.2 mm canon, which has similar armour penetration to the infamous D-5T from later soviet vehicles. This is the last unarmoured truck chassis of the Soviet tech tree, after the ZiS-12 (94-KM) and before the ZiS-43.

The 29-K is a pure sniper, use it as such. This truck is all about its precise, fast firing gun and nothing else. Safely cover up 2/3 of the vehicle behind a building, leaving only the gun, gunner and one loader exposed, taking precise shots at unsuspecting enemies.

Mobility
It's a cannon on wheels. Unlike most other Soviet trucks, it is not a GAZ chassis, it is a ten-wheeled YaG-10. This new (and unique) chassis is slower than its predecessors, but has better ground flotation with 10 wheels in total (8 in the back and under the gun, 2 at the front). The wheeled configuration makes turning on the spot impossible; thus, anticipate an escape route in case the situation turns sour.

"Protection?"
It has 6 crew members, meaning it can take a few shots and even resist MG fire (if well-covered). Ammo racks are covered with 12 mm steel plates, meaning regular MGs cannot ignite them. Otherwise, any HE shell will rip the YaG-10 apart really quickly and artillery usually shreds the vehicle with shrapnel. This low armour value has its advantages: APHE shells will often not detonate or simply not hit anything if shot from the sides.

Gun
The 76.2 mm 3-K equipped on this chassis is one hell of a gun, with good penetration and a relatively flat ballistic trajectory. 3 loaders provide it with a fast reload speed, comparable to Rank 1 vehicles. These 3 crew members allows a bit of loss before feeling a reduced firing rate. The only things the gun may lack is a good amount of HE filler for destroying enemy vehicles easier and a faster turning speed for reacting faster. This gun has similar characteristics to the D-5T, found on later Soviet tanks, providing a good learning curve to tanks using it (mainly SU-85, IS-1, T-34-85 (D-5T)).

Usage in the battles

This truck is preferably used at a distance to increase its survivability. Most MGs have poor accuracy at distance, greatly decreasing their ability to shred the 29-K. It has a good and very precise gun capable of taking down (almost) any target it may encounter from the front. Always show the sides since it decreases the chances of having a bullet pass right through all of the crew members in one shot. Showing the side allows the YaG-10 to use the full 360° traverse to its best. If possible, only show the gun, this way, it allows minimal exposure and can allow for quick hiding at a moment's notice and if shot, only sacrifices one or two crew members.

Do not:

  • Rush into towns
  • Drive directly towards an enemy
  • Stay near an artillery strike
  • Snipe in the middle of a field: Find cover

Although this is a Rank 3 vehicle, its low BR often places it against Rank 2 tanks. Even with it's awesome cannon, this truck can encounter fierce foes with even better armour.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Decent 76.2 mm gun can penetrate most enemies.
  • Very fast reloads with 3 loaders.
  • Precise gun, good ballistic trajectory.
  • Paper-thin armour makes AP rounds over-penetrate.
  • Six crew members.
  • Ammo racks are protected from MG fire.

Cons:

  • Paper-thin armour can have machine guns rip it to shreds.
  • Poor gun depression of -3°.
  • Ammo rack in rear and middle of the overall vehicle.
  • Slow gun traverse.
  • Very low mobility.
  • Can be easily destroyed by air strikes.
  • No access to APCR.
  • Lack of a gun shield means that the gunners are easier to take out than they are on the 88mm Flak Truck.
  • Shredded by artillery and HE shells.
  • Prone to hull break.
  • Cannot shoot upfront due to the high truck cabin.
