Description

Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell us about the history of the development and combat using the weaponry and also about its features. Make an air or ground vehicles list on which this weapon is installed in our game.

Vehicles equipped with this weapon

General info

Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the cannon or machine gun.

Available shells

Describe the shells that are available for the cannon and their features and purpose. If it concerns autocannons or machine guns, write about different ammo belts and what is inside (which types of shells).

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns, that have firepower equal to these type of weapons.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against the main 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:

  • Access to high-velocity APDS rounds, capable of penetrating the upper frontal plate of a Panther D even at range
  • Quick sustained rate of fire - capable of firing a shot every 5.9 seconds
  • Great gun depression of -12
  • Generous selection of shells - 3 AP shells, 1 HE shell and 1 APDS shell

Cons:

  • Lower muzzle velocity and therefore less penetration on the solid shot shells than other tanks armed with the 17-Pounder
  • No smoke shells to cover sniper spots or blind enemy tanks
  • Poor uncapped stock shell - bounces quite often, has low muzzle velocity and poor penetration figures
  • High-explosive shells are not useful against any of the enemies the Comet might face

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of this weapon. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
