  • BT-7 has a lot of weakspots that are spread across the entire tank, relatively low hitpoint, and very weak armor. It will not survive for long under fire.
  • BT-7 has a standard 45mm main gun. Although it is inferior to T-70's 45mm gun, it is nonetheless sufficient enough to effectively dish out damage to both infantry and vehicles alike, given proper ammunition is used.
  • The BT-7 has an excellent top speed, acceleration, and reverse speed. Successful use of this tank is almost always dependent on fully harnessing its speed aspect.
  • BT-7's weak armor extends to its turret as well: it has a fragile cannon breech which is prone to being destroyed . Stay on the move and avoid close quarters engagements to minimize the chance of breech destruction, as it mutually assures the destruction of the tank.
