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:

  • Twin 40 mm lvakan m/48 cannon are very effective against air units
  • Has access to proximity fuse HE shells
  • Separate ammo belts (fully made of HE or AP)
  • Has a pintle-mounted machine gun unlike other SPAA

Cons:

  • Very easy to destroy since all the ammo and the crew are located in the turret
  • The turret's armour is very thin (only 5 mm covering roof and sides)
  • Can be taken out by even rifle-calibre aircraft armaments

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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

  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
