Overview[]

The mightiest of the MG tanks' factory ammunition, only the S.m.K.H. and the B-30 Armor Piercing can surpass it penetration-wise from the other factions' offerings. However, it is still largely recommended to upgrade to ammunition like the Caliber .50, AP, M2 for better anti-armour performance.
