<!--In the description, the first part should be about the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle, as well as its key features. In the second part, tell the reader about the ground vehicle in the game. Insert a screenshot of the vehicle, so that if the novice player does not remember the vehicle by name, he will immediately understand what kind of vehicle the article is talking about.-->

Description

The ZiS-43 is a rank III Soviet self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/RB/SB). This SPAAG was introduced in Update 1.65 "Way of the Samurai". A 37 mm cannon placed in an anti-aircraft turret on a ZiS-42M half-track chassis, the ZIS-43 was a prototype built in November 1942 which underwent testing but never entered production.

Usage in battles

Despite the vehicle potent armament, it is not built for direct front-line combat. It is poorly armoured, tall, slow and unstable. If necessary, it is possible to penetrate most vehicles sides or rear but sticking to anti-aircraft duty will yield the best results. Do not stay in spawn however, most planes will attack your teammates busy fighting instead of you.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 37 mm is deadly to anything it penetrates, planes or tanks
  • Most vehicles can be engaged at close range if needed
  • Low armour means APHE won't always fuze
  • Most light machine guns will struggle to penetrate
  • Fairly high penetration (70 mm)
  • Full turret rotation
  • Cabin does not hinder penetration, unlike other half-tracks
  • Four crew members allow you to continue with only two after taking damage

Cons:

  • Very tall for self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle
  • Slow fire rate allows planes to fly between shots
  • High recoil causes the entire chassis to wobble, making continuous fire extremely inaccurate
  • Sluggish
  • Extremely vulnerable to 12.7 mm machine guns
  • Slow turret traverse
  • Needs to advance in order to turn
  • Armor protection is not sufficient to stop aircraft fire
  • Vulnerable to artillery strikes
  • Can be hull-broken

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

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

See also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:

  • reference to the series of the vehicles;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • encyclopedia page on the tank;
  • other literature.
