Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb turret protection: 200mm effective, very bouncy
+ Superb camouflage: over 38 with BIA, Camo, and Vents
+ Excellent frontal hull protection: ~160mm effective
+ Excellent gun handling and dispersion values
+ Excellent shell velocity
+ Small, flat profile
+ Good DPM (almost 2.1k base)
+ Good gun depression (-7), unusual for a Russian light
– Difficult to reach 445+m of view range without food due to lackluster view range (380m base). To get to 445m you need a skilled crew (BIA, Situational Awareness) paired with Optics and Vents
This tank doesn’t need VStab given the excellent dispersion values.
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
