General info

Survivability and armour

Chances to resist HMG's (up to 12.7 mm machine guns) from the front when angled a bit, but not at a reliable. Hull-breakable, survivability chances are near to 0 when hit by a shell.


Game Mode Max Speed (km/h) Weight (tons) Engine power (horsepower) Power-to-weight ratio (hp/ton)
Forward Reverse Stock Upgraded Stock Upgraded
Arcade 112 22 8.7 248 305 28.51 35.06
Realistic 100 20 142 160 16.32 18.39

Overall mobility is really great can reach up to 100 kph, avg speed off-road being 46-56 kph. Nice control over manoeuvrability even at high speeds. Mobility really suffers on snow or mud and severely hampers your speed. The AUBL/74 HVG also has amphibious capabilities, although speed in the water is limited to around 4 km/h.

Usage in battles

This vehicle should be played as either a Scout, Flanker or a Sniper. Use your 60mm HVG to your advantage to snipe from far away. Never brawl unless you have to, your armour won't save you at all.

Pros and cons


  • High engine HP/weight ratio and amazing top speed
  • Perfect mobility on roads and urban environments
  • Decent speed on plain fields, enough to keep up with light tanks
  • Easy to control even at high speeds
  • A rather small size vehicle, difficult to target and easy to hide
  • Smoke grenade launchers located on the turret, a player can choose which side of the tank to cover
  • Has an anti-aircraft light machine gun
  • Decent armament for a light tank: acceptable rate of fire and penetration plus near-perfect accuracy using APFSDS
  • Two-plane stabilizer allows accurate fire on the move
  • Gets the premium tank boost to XP and SL
  • Can navigate water features
  • Outfitted with night vision devices


  • Stabilizer only works up to 75 km/h
  • Horrible mobility in shallow water and snow results in heavy dependence on roads
  • The main gun, while accurate, has a low calibre of 60 mm, more than one shot is often required to take out an enemy tank
  • Small crew of three
  • Next to no armour, vulnerable even to light machine gunfire
  • Easily taken out by SPAA and other light tanks
  • Driver's viewports greatly limit the gun depression on front-right of the tank
  • All six smoke grenades are launched at once
  • While swimming, it can only go around 4-5 kph
  • Does not have thermal vision 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: and add a link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).


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