Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very high velocity APFSDS round means "point and shoot" at typical War Thunder combat ranges - no need to account for projectile drop at range.
  • Outstanding armour penetration by HEAT-FS and APFSDS rounds.
  • Very good spalling effect from the kinetic energy spread and explosive mass from HEAT-FS round - will usually one-hit-kill.
  • Good mobility for the size of gun.
  • Only Soviet tank destroyer with a turret.

Cons:

  • Weak armour - vulnerable to anything bigger than a heavy machine gun, and even those from some angles at short range.
  • Poor depression for main armament.
  • Low ammunition load
  • All projectiles carried in rear of turret behind thin armour makes ammunition explosions very likely from turret hits
