Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • Smoke generators : generate a smoke screen around the vehicle.
  • Waterproof: this vehicle can remain longer under water.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With a monstrous rate of fire and high damage, The Zhalo is a devastating tank destroyer and one of the most powerful T4s. The quick reload, excellent accuracy, and good mobility of the Zhalo make it a powerful choice for a low tier premium. As a tank destroyer though, its armor is completely negligible, so it relies on its high camo rating to survive.

History[edit | edit source]

Designed by the Soviet Union, this armored personnel carrier was devised as an experiment that added tank destroyer capabilities to a troop transport. The Zhalo-S incorporates various features from the BTR-70, such as lower doors that give troops more coverage when exiting the vehicle. As the gun lacked penetration power against modern tanks, the vehicle did not enter production.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • 2S14 Zhalo-S MERC
  • 2S14 Zhalo-S Black Eagle
The 2S14 Zhalo-S MERC, a Premium variant that was purchasable starting November 2015
