We review the Swingfire, a tier 4 AFV in Armored Warfare (AW), with gameplay of a tier 4 Reactor battle.
We also take an in-depth look at the mechanics of ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile) and tips for landing your missiles consistently, including firing on targets before they enter your line-of-sight and switching targets mid-flight.
Stat line: Ace Tanker, Recon, 2.3k damage, 1.6k spot damage, 6 kills, 9 spots
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ superb camouflage (0.42)
+ high HEAT penetration (428)
+ excellent vision
+ 2 missiles per salvo (“clip”) provide compact burst damage
– low top speed and sluggish acceleration limit active scouting capability
– ATGM requires line-of-sight to the target, which means the Swingfire is exposed to counter-fire
– can struggle in close-quarters combat, compared to other AFVs which can fire-on-the-move and flank
Similar to my “Road to Unicum” video for World of Tanks (WoT), the objective of these AW videos is to help players improve their gameplay.
