Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent gun depression
  • Turret has small profile and decent protection when in hull down positions
  • Good damage with 5.7cm, good for taking out thin skinned armor like the Cruisers
  • Very sloped frontal armor can bounce some shots at range
  • Premium 5.7cm rounds are quite devastating with decent penetration


Cons:


  • Inaccurate guns
  • Mediocre mobility
  • Average to Below average overall armor
  • Poor Penetration on all guns


Performance

This is a solid support tank. While it is not the best at mobility, it can be sneaky with it's excellent gun depression over hills and ridges, where you should exploit this tank's strengths. The guns all have poor penetration and are quite inaccurate, but do fire fast. The 5.7cm gun is an excellent choice, as it's premium rounds have adequate penetration and even it's HE rounds can do a fair amount of damage to even the most armored of opponents. At 28mm of penetration, it is good at firing at flat, thin armor of the Cruiser tanks where it can devastate their vehicle.

This vehicle's armor is merely adequate. Frontal armor can bounce some low caliber shots at a long range and the upper plate is heavily sloped, however, it is only 10mm. Stay out of the line of fire, support your allies on the flanks.
