From the weapons you can install one of the two guns 37 mm Gun M6 or 37 mm Gun T16. Both guns can pierce armor in 56 millimeters and inflict about 40 units with one projectile. The 37 mm Gun T16 differs from the 37 mm Gun M6 in that it has a unique loading mechanism and a drum which, in one shot, launches about 5 rounds in a shorter period. Thanks to this tool you can quickly disassemble enemy tanks for parts. But there is a small drawback, when the shell was fired and the first shot occurred, the drum would be discharged until the shells in the drum ran out. And there is a risk of accidentally damaging an ally’s tank when the drum is discharged.
