Ammunition

  • Default: API-T · HEFI-T · HEFI-T - This belt can fulfill both roles until the others are researched.
  • Type 100 HE-T: HEFI-T - These are best in the AA role but have no effect on enemy tanks except open-topped vehicles.
  • Type 100 AP-T API-T - These are best against enemy tanks at close range and do good damage to planes. Concentrate your fire on weak spots like the sides and the rear.

Usage in battles

The Ta-Se is a fast turreted SPAAG armed with a 20 mm autocannon. It can serve both as an AA or, in urban/small maps, as a close-quarter flanking vehicle. With a fair 24 hp/ton ratio (fully upgraded), the Ta-Se has enough mobility to follow other light tanks. Its light weight makes breaking through obstacles a bit challenging, but, its canon can break most of them before making contact. With fairly narrow tracks, this vehicle is easily slowed down by rough terrain.

One big downside to being such a fast and versatile vehicle (both AA and AT) is that armour is very light at an average of 12 mm. This means you won't survive any shot bigger than MG fire: play smart and always flank, strike fast and retreat at the littlest threat (arty, other enemy tank, strafing plane, etc.). Since two out of three crew members are located in the turret (with their head popping out of it), do not expect to survive any more than one shot.

AA role:

While not being the best rank 1 AA autocannon (this title belongs to the German Flakpanzer 38(t) Gepard), this little gun is still very suitable to engage planes.

Shooting at aircraft, you can make use of it's maneuverability to evade enemy bombs or bullets. This is not a spectacular AA since it's fire density is not so great, requiring every shot to be pinpoint on target to hit. Bring 5-6 full HE belts (API works aswell offering high fire chance) to take this role in case there is planes coming your way. Any good SPAA tactic works fine with the Ta-Se.

Light brawler:

Any aggressive player will greatly enjoy taking this little brute into a close quarter fight. Its fast speed and turret turning rate allow for intense action and multi-target engagement. At this BR, 45 mm of penetration is more than enough to incapacitate most enemy tanks. But beware of its limited ammo count and always engage your target with a fully loaded magazine. It is recommended to spray the gunner first and then taking your time to snipe every other crew member. Whenever an artillery strike is coming your way, be it friendly or enemy, do not stand there for too long since a single shell can wreck this tank. One last warning: never engage heavy targets, instead: flee.

Pros and cons

Pros

  • More armoured than the Type 94 (can survive MG fire)
  • Good manoeuvrability and speed
  • Fast turret turning rate
  • Tiny. Can easily conceal itself and wait for the perfect time to take out enemy aircraft
  • 20 mm autocannon is more than enough to take out planes at its BR and API-T belt can even take out light tanks and medium tanks from the side.
  • 20 magazines of 20 bullets each.
  • Good default multi-purpose belt.
  • Fast reload speed

Cons

  • Same single-mounted 20 mm autocannon as with the Type 94
  • Open crew top still vulnerable to air strikes and artillery
  • Only 3 crew members, two of which are in the turret
  • Loader and commander are exposed from the turret.
  • Low firing rate and dispersion, make every shot count.

History

One Ta-Se prototype was built in 1941. The vehicle design never saw production.
