Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against notable opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • If it hits, almost always ends in one-shot destruction or a critical hit
  • Excellent gun for shooting in small bursts
  • Useful for air and ground targets
  • AP-T shells can penetrate up to 60 mm, enough to penetrate the roofs of most tanks

Cons:

  • Aircraft which utilize it have low ammunition count
  • Aircraft must be in very close to the target to increase accuracy
  • Accuracy decreases drastically with continuous shooting
  • Overheats quickly
  • Gun features only three ammunition belts to choose from
  • No stealth belt available

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-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 />.
