Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • An absolutely devastating cannon barrage of six HEAT shells
  • Very high acceleration, top speed and traverse
  • Massive damage output
  • Good camo and spotting capabilities
  • Unique skill - Retreat. Great for hit-and-run tactics
  • Good for peeking, due to the high up cannon placement
  • Very small target
  • Terrain resistance
  • Invisible movement

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Limited firing cone
  • No armor what so ever
  • Long reload time (especially if all cannons are empty)
  • No APS
  • Great accuracy decay if shot full auto
  • Bad for sniping - you would need to wait long for the aim circle to go down, which makes the rapid fire useless
  • No APFSDS ammo
  • Hard to obtain (only via Battle path)
