General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.


Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forward and backwards.

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


  • Incredibly good mobility on and off road, courtesy of its extremely powerful engine
  • Twin 120mm cannons are unrivaled at its rank, HEAT-FS and APFSDS can penetrate almost any tank it encounters
  • One cannon is equipped with an autoloader
  • Very quick hull traverse
  • Due to the gun layout, the VT1-2 can position itself to fire one cannon while the other is behind cover


  • Thin, mild steel armor cannot resist anything resembling anti-tank fire
  • 3 crew members are grouped together in the front of the tank, poor survivability
  • Cannons cannot traverse horizontally, hull aiming mechanic must be used for precise fire
  • Very difficult to fire on the move
  • No machine guns for fending off aircraft, highly vulnerable to air attack
  • No access to smoke grenades/shells/systems
  • Due to hull aiming, the hull tends to roll back or forward depending on terrain


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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


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