This may look like an ordinary match, but I assure you it was not. I was already discouraged when my very first shot missed, but then the accuracy was okay.

It got interesting when our O-I died in the corridor, which enabled the enemy KV-85 to come for me…which was denied as I shotgunned him. The T-34-85 was at 5 kills, so he asked us not to shoot, and we didn’t, he killed one of the remaining two arties on the enemy team but got killed by their GW Panther immediately after. Now it was only us three arties, and someone had to do something, so I went to spot for the other two, hoping they would shoot the GWP when I spot it.

I was fully prepared to die, but wouldn’t have minded if it would have enabled my team mates to kill the GWP. It was still where it was last seen, which was good but also bad cause he was able to spot me first. At first I hesitated, but then was like “fuck it” and tried to spot him in return. Which I did, but at this point he surely would have had enough to time aim at me…but apparently not? I stood still and aimed as long as I dared to, and shotgunned the GWP, thus winning the match.

I also can’t get over the M41s’ “go pluton pls”. (Translation: “platoon with us please”…..I think…)

Introducing Jagdpanther “Jäger Zyclop”, or “Hunter Zyclop”, with an ambush camoflage pattern.
The Jagdpanther was designed in 1943 and was part of the last generation of WW2 German tank destoyers which included the Jagdpanzer 38(t) “Hetzer” and the Jagdpanzer IV. Both were exceptional and lethal tank destroyers of their time, and the Jagdpanther is no different. The Jagdpanther is based on the Panzerkampfwagen V Panther Ausf. G chassis and mounts the infamous 8.8cm Pak 43/4 L/71 tank gun. This combines the Tiger I’s devastating firepower with the great mobilty of the Panther Ausf. G without compromising much armour protection. There wasn’t any allied tank during WW2 that the Jagdpanther couldn’t penetrate,and this only served to further increase the difficulties faced by underarmoured American and British tanks. However, like most late war German tanks, the Jagdpanther suffered from low production numbers, due to Allied bombing campaigns,with only 400+ units being produced before the end of the war. This also meant a shortage in spare parts too. So although the Jagdpanther proved to turn the tides of battles, there weren’t nearly enough to turn the tide of the war.
WoT wise this a fun and lethal tier VII tank destroyer. Although it has a variety of guns to choose from, the Jagdpanther is the most effective with the 2nd 8.8cm gun (Pak 43/4 L/71(?)) and the 10.5cm gun. The first 2 guns are okay stock guns but you either get good penetration and low alpha damage with the 7.5cm or high alpha damage and low penetration for the tier with the 1st 8.8cm gun. It has great frontal armour that can bounce an incredibly number of shots if angled, and the design of the fighting compartment gives it great gun depression compared to precious German tank destroyers allowing it to angle effectively and still engage targets. It’s not as sneaky as the Jagdpanzer IV or Jagdpanzer 38(t) due to its larger profile so a camoflage net and camoflage skill perks would definitely help. Another drawback is an inconsistency made by Wargaming; the Jagdpanther only has 860 hit points which is much less than the 1400+ hit points of the Panther Ausf. G even though both share the same chassis. Engine damage is again a problem, more so than for my Panther Ausf. G “Asgard”. Arty of course loves to shoot at turretless TDs. Despite it’s drawbacks though, this tank can effectively balance sniping with mobile assualt.

Thanks for backing up into my aiming circle, I guess?

半年放置している間にWoTはPS4版のベータが終わり、正式サービスが始まっておりました。


Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf.B Tiger II(ティーガーII)は言わずと知れたティーガーIの発展型です。
避弾経始が非常に有効なWoTのゲームにおいて、垂直に切り立った装甲で構成されたドイツ戦車は防御面に不安を抱えた車両が多いのですが、ティーガーIIは分厚い前面傾斜装甲を活かした重戦車らしい戦い方が可能です。
また、史実ではその大重量により機動性の低さや足回りの故障の多さ、メンテナンス性の悪さなどの弱点があったそうですが、ゲームではもちろんメンテなんて不要だし、履帯が切れてもボタン一発で直るよ! やったね!
