It has 6 crew members, meaning it can take a few shots and even resist MG fire (if well-covered). Ammo racks are covered with 12 mm steel plates, meaning regular MGs cannot ignite them. Otherwise, any HE shell will rip the YaG-10 apart really quickly and artillery usually shreds the vehicle with shrapnel. This low armour value has its advantages: APHE shells will often not detonate or simply not hit anything if shot from the sides.

Description

GarageImage YaG-10 (29-K).jpg


The YaG-10 (29-K) is a rank III Soviet tank destroyer with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.67 "Assault".

This unarmoured truck is equipped with a good fast-firing 76.2 mm cannon, which has similar armour penetration to the infamous D-5T from later soviet vehicles. This is the last unarmoured truck chassis of the Soviet tech tree, after the ZiS-12 (94-KM) and before the ZiS-43.

The 29-K is a pure sniper, use it as such. This truck is all about its precise, fast firing gun and nothing else. Safely cover up 2/3 of the vehicle behind a building, leaving only the gun, gunner and one loader exposed, taking precise shots at unsuspecting enemies.

Mobility
It's a cannon on wheels. Unlike most other Soviet trucks, it is not a GAZ chassis, it is a ten-wheeled YaG-10. This new (and unique) chassis is slower than its predecessors, but has better ground flotation with 10 wheels in total (8 in the back and under the gun, 2 at the front). The wheeled configuration makes turning on the spot impossible; thus, anticipate an escape route in case the situation turns sour.

"Protection?"
It has 6 crew members, meaning it can take a few shots and even resist MG fire (if well-covered). Ammo racks are covered with 12 mm steel plates, meaning regular MGs cannot ignite them. Otherwise, any HE shell will rip the YaG-10 apart and artillery usually shreds the vehicle with shrapnel. This low armour value has its advantages: APHE shells will often not detonate or simply not hit anything if shot from the sides.

Gun
The 76.2 mm 3-K equipped on this chassis is one hell of a gun, with good penetration and a relatively flat ballistic trajectory. 3 loaders provide it with a fast reload speed, comparable to Rank 1 vehicles. These 3 crew members allows a bit of loss before feeling a reduced firing rate. The only things the gun may lack is a good amount of HE filler for destroying enemy vehicles easier and a faster turning speed for reacting faster. This gun has similar characteristics to the D-5T, found on later Soviet tanks, providing a good learning curve to tanks using it (mainly SU-85, IS-1, T-34-85 (D-5T)).

Usage in battles

This truck is preferably used at a distance to increase its survivability. Most MGs have poor accuracy at distance, greatly decreasing their ability to shred the 29-K. It has a good and very precise gun capable of taking down (almost) any target it may encounter from the front. Always show the sides since it decreases the chances of having a bullet pass right through all of the crew members in one shot. Showing the side also allows the YaG-10 to use the full 360° traverse to its best. If possible, only show the gun, this way, it allows minimal exposure and can allow for quick hiding at a moment's notice and if shot, only sacrifices one or two crew members.

Do not:

  • Rush into towns
  • Drive directly towards an enemy
  • Stay near an artillery strike
  • Snipe in the middle of a field: Find cover

Although this is a Rank 3 vehicle, its low BR often places it against Rank 2 tanks. Even with its awesome cannon, this truck can encounter fierce foes with even better armour.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Decent 76.2 mm gun can penetrate most enemies.
  • Very fast reloads with 3 loaders.
  • Precise gun, good ballistic trajectory.
  • Paper-thin armour makes AP rounds over-penetrate.
  • Six crew members.
  • Ammo racks are protected from MG fire.
  • Has access to HE-DF which could make it easier to take out aircraft.

Cons:

  • Paper-thin armour lets machine guns rip it to shreds.
  • Poor gun depression of -3°.
  • Ammo rack in rear and middle of the overall vehicle.
  • Slow gun traverse.
  • Very low mobility.
  • Can be easily destroyed by air strikes.
  • No access to APCR.
  • Lack of a gun shield means that the gunners are easier to take out than they are on the 88mm Flak Truck.
  • Shredded by artillery and HE shells.
  • Prone to hull break.
  • Cannot shoot upfront due to the high truck cabin.

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.
