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 instead 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 100 mm gun to familiarize with before T-54 series of tanks
  • Stock shells have high penetration and explosive filler
  • Can easily one-shot many tanks
  • Great top speed and manoeuvrability (56 km/h)
  • Decent ammo count

Cons:

  • Although the front armour is sloped, it's thin and easily penetrated
  • Bad gun depression of 3 degrees
  • Can be easily taken out in one shot due to the cramped internals
  • Weak armour overall
  • Large profile and long cannon make the tank hard to conceal

History

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
