Usage in the 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:

  • Main gun with 70mm HE and the secondary with 37m AP are a deadly combination
  • Great gun depression and good elevation
  • Six crew vehicle
  • The secondary frontal turret can act as a shield to absorb some hits

Cons:

  • Large ammo racks, combined with insufficient armor (for a heavy tank) makes the tank easy to flank and kill
  • Slow and heavy= bad at climbing
  • Slow turret traverse makes the Ro-Go easy to flank
  • Two different trajectories for the main guns
  • Back turret ammo runs out very quickly

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

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

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.

ETC.
