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.

Usage in battles
The Pbv 301 shall be used mainly as an SPAA. Its cannon with its pinpoint accuracy and a high rate of fire for its BR along the slsgr m/42 HEFI-T belt prove devastating to deal with low-flying planes and bombers. During a game, it is recommended to stay within the confines of your spawn and scout the skies for any aircraft. The high muzzle velocity and rate of fire make this vehicle effective against aircraft at medium ranges.
In an anti-tank role, the Pbv 301 is only effective against light tanks and SPAAGs, as the armour of most tanks at its BR is thick enough to resist 20 mm cannons shells. It is therefore not recommended to play this tank offensively.
Pros and cons
- Fully-enclosed design, granting the crew a higher chance of survival.
- Equipped with smoke grenades
- Low profile
- Adequate mobility
- Good rate of fire
- Little armour, effective only against machine gun fire
- Only 2 crew members, very low chance of surviving a penetration shot.
- Limited elevation angle
- Long reload time
- Limited belt capacity
- Confined to a strict AA role, inadequate against ground forces
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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the series of the vehicles;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:
- topic on the official game forum;
- other literature.
