The key will be to stick to your team and take out the crew of an enemy tank and then let the dedicated tanks finish them off with their harder-hitting rounds. Just remember this only works on all but the most lightly armoured targets, such as other SPAA, early Russian tanks and the side of some American tanks, this works best when your vehicle is down-tiered and not the other way around.

This page is about the Soviet SPAA vehicle GAZ-AAA (DShK). For the version equipped with 7.62 mm Maxim's, see GAZ-AAA (4M).

Description

The GAZ-AAA (DShK) is a rank I Soviet SPAA with a battle rating of 1.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.63 "Desert Hunters".

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.

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forwards and backwards.

Usage in battles

Potentially the most challenging SPAA to use in the game, due to the machine gun's low rate of fire making it relatively ineffective against aircraft, however, it can work in part as a basic tank destroyer and support vehicle.

The key will be to stick to your team and take out the crew of an enemy tank and then let the dedicated tanks finish them off with their harder-hitting rounds. Just remember this only works on all but the most lightly armoured targets, such as other SPAA, early Russian tanks and the side of some American tanks, this works best when your vehicle is down-tiered and not the other way around.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Weapon has increased penetration compared to the preceding GAZ-AAA (4M)

Cons:

  • Limited magazine of 50 means the armament has to frequently reload
  • Russian 12.7 AP is still notably inferior to the American equivalent
  • Vehicle armament consists of only a single 600 RPM machine gun
  • No armour, can easily be destroyed by .30 cal machine guns
  • Gunner can't swivel around 360 degrees horizontally
  • Limited vertical traverse
  • Will struggle to eliminate passing aircraft due to a low volume of fire
  • Arguably worse as an SPAA than the GAZ-AAA (4M)

History

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: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) 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).

Media

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