Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Armament

Primary armament

2 х Turret12.7 mm DShK machine gun
Ammunition2000 rounds
Belt capacity50 rounds
Fire rate600 shots/min
Vertical guidance-10° / 65°
Main article: DShK (12.7 mm)

The primary armament of the Ya-5M consists of two 12.7mm DSHK machine guns (the first turret mounted above the wheelhouse and the second in an aft pintle). These guns are known for their fast fire rate and decent armour penetration at their rank, on the YA-5M however, one must turn the ship slightly broadside to enable the usage of both guns at once, this can present a problem while aiming the rockets.

APIT belts are suggested as they contain both HE and AP mixed to maximize damage output against all possible targets.

Special armament

Turret82 mm M-8 rocket
Ammunition72 rounds
Main article: M-8

The Ya-5M comes armed with 24 M-8 rockets and one full reload. These rockets are decent area-denial light artillery weapons, but suffer from terrible accuracy beyond 100 meters due to conditions at sea. It is suggested to fire these rockets in 4-5 burst salvos to offset the lack of precision.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good armaments
  • Decent stability and low roll
  • Premium bonuses

Cons:

  • Quite slow
  • Low accuracy and damage from rockets
  • Small crew
  • Exposed gun positions

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the ship and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Ship-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 ship's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
