General info

Survivability and armour

Additional armament

Some tanks are armed with several guns in one or more turrets. Evaluate the additional weaponry and advise on its use. Describe the ammunition available for additional weaponry. Advise about 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


  • Removal of the hull MG port = one less weak spot to worry about
  • Same hard-hitting 90mm gun as on the original T32
  • Great turret armour; all but invincible when hull-down
  • Good hull armour; can take a hit or two, especially if angled correctly
  • T41 AP shell has outstanding post-penetration damage
  • Reasonably mobile for a heavy tank
  • Great gun depression; good for hull-down tactics


  • Ammo rack in the middle of the tank; a shell strike and penetration there can result in instantaneous destruction
  • Long reload time of 15-18 seconds
  • Small but noticeable shot trap where the mantlet meets the hull; enemies may try to shoot there
  • Stock AP round doesn't have explosive filler, making killing enemy tanks somewhat difficult


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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


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