Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Painless stock grind if the first 85mm gun and the top engine has been researched from the Type 58
  • Very fast and nimble; easily maintains at least 45 km/h even when making wide turns
  • Consistent and good gun upgrades, most of which carry on to the WZ-132
  • Last 85mm gun has over 2100 base DPM with acceptable penetration and good aiming time


Cons:


  • 100mm top gun has below average rate of fire, bad aiming time and accuracy
  • Prone to multiple module and crew damage due to modules being cramped together; ammo rack is weak and explodes easily
  • Poor gun depression
  • Long grind to unlock all modules


Performance

Your speed is your advantage – use it wisely when fighting your opponents – your good maneuverability means that you lose very little speed while turning and you can easily circle lone heavy tanks or tank destroyers with poor turret and/or track traverse.
