Description

The mKPz M47 G is a premium rank V German medium tank with a battle rating of 7.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.71 "New E.R.A." as a purchasable pack, but was discontinued after the 2019 Summer sales.

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 forward and backwards.

Armaments

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.

Main article: M36 (90 mm)

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.

Main article: M2HB (12.7 mm)

Usage in battles

The MKPz M47 G tank is great for rushing the capture points in Realistic battles. Once there, fall back a little and find a good place for surveying the battlefield while looking for targets to snipe using your great HEAT rounds.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very good turret - most of shots will either bounce or none-pen it
  • The hull can't be penetrated by most of the tanks it faces; only a few tanks with high calibre cannons can penetrate it
  • Very fast turret rotation, even faster than some rank VII MBTs
  • It has a very potent gun with access to a variety of shells to use in any situation
  • Very good speed and turning ability
  • It has 12.7 mm mounted machine gun which is very an effective AA gun
  • Very good acceleration

Cons:

  • The hull machine gun port and the armour plates around it are deadly weak spots
  • Only -5° gun depression unlike most other American tanks
  • It has very good armour, but tanks with more modern shells can penetrate it easily (though this problem is not specific to the M47)

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.
