|— In-game description|
The Chieftain is armed with a very powerful 250mm mortar and a dual MG turret. The 250mm Mortar has a 80 degree firing angle, and the machine gun turret has a 200 round magazine. The 250mm shells allow it to take out most buildings very quickly, it can destroy a Town Base or Relic Base in just a few shots. The 12.7mm turret can fight off enemy infantry but the Chieftain lacks any means to fight enemy tanks, it should thus always have support from friendly tanks before making a push.
The gunner adjust the firing distance with
Mouse Scroll Wheel (25m max). The mortar fires in an arc, not in a straight line like other tank turrets. Since the firing arc is not shown to the gunner, the target distance must be provided by the spotter or be gauged by the gunner themself to then adjust the mortar's firing distance accordingly.
