1.11 Coming Soon: German Precision!

German Precision!

As Update 1.11 approaches, an operative enters the command tent with a packet containing three new tank designs! Designed for patient medium drivers or those who prefer a precise hunter's weapon, these new tanks hit the battlefield soon!

Open the packet Commander, and good hunting!

Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. A (Tier III)

History and Development

Developed in 1935, a total of 35 vehicles saw service until 1941, with later variants becoming the workhorse of the German military.

How Do I Play the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. A?

With a good rate of fire on its stock gun as well as an excellent top gun for its tier, the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf A brings 75mm howitzer-level firepower and good agility into the mix! It may not have the best armor or the quickest top-gun reload, but this tank has good gun depression for a German vehicle, hits hard and is very capable of supporting an advance.

The ideal situation for your tank is ambush flanking with the stock gun, and medium countersniping, or "Peek-A-Booming" in support of your allies!

Suggested Equipment

Anything to help reduce your reload and reticule bloom such as:

  •  Enhanced Gun Laying Drive; Vents; Gun Rammer

Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. D (Tier IV)

History and Development

A later modification of the Pz. IV chassis, this tank was developed in 1939 and produced until 1940, with 229 tanks built in that time!

How Do I Play the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. D?

This tank features better gun options than the Ausf. A, though it has similar armor and mobility. While you might feel a need for speed, the Ausf. D has 100 more HP in top configuration, and this clever sniper's top gun is capable of penetrating heavily armored targets. Keep your gun at work, don't rush your shots, and move with your teammates as they spot targets for you when you engage the enemy!

Suggested Equipment

  •  Enhanced Gun Laying Drive; Gun Rammer; and Vents or Coated Optics

Jagdpanther II (Tier VIII)

History and Development

Based on 1943 plans for an early prototype mounting an 88mm gun on a large hull, the Jagdpanther II was actually designed before the Jagdpanther and was planned to incorporate the Panther II hull. With the cancellation of the Panther II project in late 1943, this project never saw production or service.

How Do I Play the Jagdpanther II?

The Jagdpanther II is a tank that rewards the patient hunter: with a 128mm top gun, and well sloped top casemate armor, as well as a better top speed than most other Tier VIII tank destroyers, it is not the best armored all-around. Mastery of ambush and sniping tactics, using hull-down firing positions and knowing when to relocate will serve you well.

This tall tank destroyer is tough to keep hidden and, despite its height, doesn't have great gun depression, so use your speed to reposition over and around terrain as you support your team. In an emergency, you can out-traverse some light tanks!

Suggested Equipment

  • Gun Rammer; Gun Laying Drive; and either a Camo Net, Vents, or Coated Optics
