Self-Propelled Guns, or SPGs in short, are one of the playable vehicle classes in Armored Warfare.

Gameplay[ | ]

For a full list of playable Self-Propelled Guns, see Vehicles § Self-Propelled Guns.

By design, Self-Propelled Guns are intended to be a class of direct fire support vehicles that deal damage by firing high caliber shells from a distance. Their primary ammunition are high-explosive shells and high-explosive anti-tank shells, but a few vehicles, such as FV433 Abbot, FV433 Abbot VE, and PLZ-89, have high-explosive squash head shells instead of high-explosive anti-tank shells. While it is possible to use such Self-Propelled Guns as close range support, players should be wary of the vehicles' mediocre accuracy while traversing as well as poor defensive capability compared to other classes.

Self-Propelled Guns also have access to two types of support ammunition: white phosphorus shells can deal fixed damage over a short period of time on a small area, reducing all enemy vehicles' camouflage underneath to zero as well as a set chance to cause engine fire to them, whereas smoke shells can deploy a layer of smoke in the target area to cover friendly vehicles or disrupting enemy vehicles' line of sight.

As of December 2023, all Self-Propelled Guns have 20% base camouflage. They lose 10% camouflage when moving or turning, 20% camouflage when firing their main gun's primary ammunition, and 7.5% when firing support ammunition.

The 2S19 Msta-S is currently the sole outlier, retaining the legacy "bird's eye view" feature that can be used to target enemies practically anywhere on the map beyond the default third person view (default key "LSHIFT"). Its support ammunition have a very steep ballistic arc, allowing them to hit targets where high explosive shells cannot normally reach. As a result, this particular vehicle is limited to PvE and Global Operations only.[1]
