In World of Tanks, the self-propelled guns' (SPGs, or artillery) range is determined much more by projectile motion than the standard LOS guns on the tanks and TDs. In the spec sheets for the guns or chassis though, it doesn't offer any clue as to how far they can actually shoot. Where is this information?

I too would love to see this info, but haven't found any hard numbers yet. Based on my limited SPG experience, I can tell you that the T57 and the M37 with the stock gun both have very short range...probaby about 500m, while the M37's upgraded gun has good range...probably around 800m to 900m. –  Granger44 Jul 30 '12 at 15:55

@Leo you should try to compile the loose data from the forum into a nice post here ;) It's a good source; but forum posts are notorious for rotting. –  Nick T Dec 27 '12 at 2:34

no british data? –  Rapitor Sep 23 '13 at 20:06

I too wasn't able to find any numbers concerning the range of SPGs. However, range is only a problem/limitation in low-tier SPGs. With almost any mid-tier or high-tier SPG, you can virtually cover the entire map from your starting location. Only few very high caliber guns' range (gw-tiger's, etc.) remains insufficient to reach enemy base in high tiers, which didnot consist much of a problem for me. (I have researched and played up until Gw Type-E and Object-261)

With some SPGs though (notably Grille with the weaker gun) you can barely reach outside most opponent tanks view range, making them terrible as artillery! It would be worthwhile to know this before you start grinding the 14,000 exp... –  SF. Aug 20 '13 at 14:25
