No one saying it won't get a return appearance right?

Not likely. Borsht is a tier higher, a foot lower, and a few inches more gun.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

^ this. And the alpha on the scorpion is a lot lower with a similar reload time. DPM is a little on the sad side.

 

But for the sake of having it, I'll likely put my fanboi hat on and go buy it. Please go easy on me with your associated fanboi flaming.

It's a shame the AUS dollar is so low against the USD atm, but one must appease the WG gods.

Well the kanonenjagdpanzer isn't all that amazing really, it's a pretty maneuverable non pref TD that has a spahpanzer gun. The only thing it has going for it is the top speed

Can someone from WG tell me if this Premium Tank will have 'camo after shooting' bonus effect or not?

 

Thank you.

Well I did buy it and I gotta say the gun is hopelessly inaccurate, and don't ever put yourself into a position where you have to reverse out of danger...which is almost impossible seeing as though it does not have full turret traverse.

I am a proud collector of premium tanks and will keep it and try to adapt to it, but right now the words "Another Panther 8.8" is ringing in my ears.

Also anything touches it and it loses hit points.  if you drive along the side of it it's hit points start dropping like when an enemy tank is sitting on you.

 

Ramable by anything at all.  Should help people pad WNEzz when they oppose it.

 

Still. I'll be buying it tomorrow.


Thanks Conan - (Insert Eggplant here)

I find the gun pretty good.

Yep, armour is paper and anything that looks at you the wrong way will cause ram damage. Even trees will cause ram damage* to this thing.

 

*Disclaimer: trees may not actually cause ram damage.
