Description

GarageImage R3 T106 FA.jpg


The OTO R3 T106 FA is a Rank V Italian light tank with a battle rating of 7.0 (AB) and 7.3 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.85 "Supersonic".

General info

Survivability and armour

the R3 T106 FA has the same chassis as the R3 T20 FA-HS. This means that it will have the same level of protection. Compared to the Fiat Chassis (Fiat 6614 and Aubl/74 uses this chassis) the armour is a lot better. This is because the front plate is 33mm thick which allows it to take a few hits from 50 cals, especially if angled. However this tank is still vulnerable to machine gun fire. The "no-armour best armour" concept found in war thunder also generally does not apply to this vehicle since the crew is very compact. Bombs and rockets also have a large kill radius on you

Whats good about the survivability is the ability to poke just the gun out of cover. This not only makes the tank very difficult to spot but in case of a hit only the barrel will be damaged (and only often 1 of them which allows you to fire with the other one).

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and maneuverability as well as the maximum speed forward and backward.

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. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Additional armament

Some tanks are armed with several guns in one or more turrets. Evaluate the additional weaponry and give advice on its use. Describe the ammunition available for additional weaponry. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage. If there is no additional weaponry remove this subsection.

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.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Powerful 106mm recoilless rifles.
  • Insane top speed; can give the M18 Hellcat a run for its money.
  • Resilient to machine gun fire from the front.
  • Can swim


Cons:

  • Will be prioritized as a target by the enemy team due to its notoriety.
  • Flips over very often.
  • Thin armor.
  • Can be destroyed simply by ramming it at top speed.
  • Even LMG fire can destroy the engine from the rear.

History

In the early 1980s, the OTO Melara company developed a new armored car, called the OTO R 2.5 “Gorgona”. Investing heavily into research and development efforts, OTO Melara continued developing the design into a “Special Task Vehicle” as part of a private venture.

The resulting OTO R3, nicknamed in production as “Capraia” was first shown off at the Italian Naval Exhibition in Genoa in 1982. The new vehicle received increased armor protection around its body, protecting the crew from rifle caliber fire and shrapnel. Furthermore, the vehicle could be armed with various weaponry, ranging from MGs, over cannons to ATGMs, depending on the version.

Despite their very promising and versatile design, this family of combat vehicles were only built and used in very limited numbers.

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
