General info

Survivability and armour

The Ro-go is an excellently protected vehicle for 1.3. featuring armour thick enough to stop 50. from all angles, and when angled even anti-tank guns. As well, The placement of modules deep down inside the hull, where most 1.3 players would never think of shooting, makes the chance that the ammo, engine, transmission and fuel tanks getting hit rather low. Even the crew inside the tank are pretty well protected by the tank's armour, and if everything fails you still have the lone machinegunner in the back turret, which means that a lot of the time you will be able to make a partial recovery from getting shredded to pieces by the waves of Pz.IIs and M2A4s.

Usage in the battles

The Ro-go, like most landships, is the perfect vehicle to lead an assault. The Ro-go's relatively thick armour and impressive firepower mean that the Ro-go can deal a lot of punishment to the enemy. As well, if being the spearhead of an assault isn't your style, you can always use that sweet 200 m/s to annoy enemies who think that they are safe behind buildings, walls, rocks and even hills.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Main gun with 70mm HE and the secondary with 37m AP are a deadly combination
  • 70mm's amazing 200 m/s with heat shells (slowest in the game) means that it can shoot enemies behind cover
  • Great gun depression and good elevation
  • Six crew vehicle
  • The secondary frontal turret can act as a shield to absorb some hits
  • has relatively thick armour enough to stop 50. from all angles and, when angled, many anti-tank guns
  • Good maneuverability for a heavy tank
  • 70mm HEAT shells excel in both penetration and dama
  • Modules are very well hidden in amongst the vehicle

Cons:

  • Slow turret traverse makes the Ro-Go easy to flank
  • Features only a single machinegun in a rear turret
  • Two massively different trajectories for the main guns
  • Back turret ammo runs out very quickly
  • Very slow
  • Penetration with standard APHE for both guns is lacking

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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.
