Overall, the armour protection of the hull, as it is a T-10 hull, has very good protection for only APDS. When not angled, the pike is able to deflect and stop APDS and full calibre kinetic rounds. However, chemical rounds such as HEAT and ATGM will have no issues penetrating the hull as well as APFSDS. Moving to the turret, it is poorly armoured even against APDS, it may stop APCBC shells but should not be relied on to stop HEAT and ATGM nor APFSDS

Mobility wise, as it is a T-10, it lacks speed as well as agility. However, the horsepower generated by the engine makes this a beast when moving obstacles and even dead tanks. The mass can be seen as a pro and a con. Due to heavy mass, it has more traction and will not be flipped by explosions or pushed so easily by tanks. However, the mass reduced drastically the top speed as well as the acceleration.

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:

  • Good turret armour and effective pike nose hull armour.
  • Good side armour which can occasionally protect you from heavy tank shells.
  • Decent mobility for such a heavily armoured vehicle.
  • Has night vision device.
  • Has a vertical stabilizer.
  • 12.7 mm DShK coaxial and commander's weapons make short work of light vehicles, allowing conservation of main gun rounds.

Cons:

  • HEATFS, HESH, APDS rounds can easily penetrate the armour.
  • 14 hp/t ratio (in RB) which is not enough at its BR.
  • -8 km/h reverse speed.
  • Limited ammo reserves for secondary weapons.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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