Performance

This tank has to be played cautiously as its armour is wholly inadequate and it is prone to crew and module damage, which it has in common with most Czech medium tanks. Furthermore, it's slow traverse speed and low rate of fire make it unsuitable for dogfighting. In addition, the gun has a tendency to miss unless fully aimed, making it unreliable when taking snap shots. Instead, it should be used as a medium range sniper and flanking medium, using its superior speed to get into an advantageous position and to retreat when necessary.
