Hi guys ,

 

Got the Hetzer to prem , but im still a bit confused with the gun options .

7.5cm STU.K. 40L/43

10.5cm STU.H.42L/28

7.5cm PAK 39 L/48

 

Im assuming the 10.5 cm is the most powerful regardless of which round is in it ? AP or HE 

 

And this would apply to any tank ?

get hetzer with 105mm gun if you want to brawl and troll.get 75mm l48 gun if you want to snipe.i would recommend 105mm cause its to powerfull for its tier.and always use he shells as primary ammo for derpy guns

Whilst it is fairly safe to assume that the larger caliber guns are the most "powerful" (alpha damage) for any tank.... it doesn't mean that they are always the best to go with. Take the Derp guns for the Type 4 / Type 5 Heavy. These have now been nerfed into the ground and you would be better off using the 140mm gun on these tanks (if you were going to play them at all given they are now garbage).

 

In general however for the Hetzer - as Samibsal said - get the 105mm for the troll value and upclose fighting. If you plan on hanging back to snipe at long range, go for the Pak 39.

For the Hetzer, the derp is the way, the light and the power. HE all the way.

 

At T4, you basically one shot most T4 tanks and below.

 

As you go up the tiers, the value of HE generally drops, unless you are in a KV2.

I feel that the Hetzer is no longer as good as it once was. Its 75mm gun cant pen through many tier 5 and 6 tanks and its armor feels useless. Am I playing it wrong or is the Marder 38t better?

 

 It’s the same 75mm as the Marder 38t.
