    1. With some buff it will be better T4 scout than the lame Leo now.

      But the Leo in T5... hm... what gun? I'm sure it won't get the 10,5 derp. Then? 75 L/48? weeeell....
      (will they change the scouts MM then? VK will be T6, the new end of the line scout, so the T5 Leo became something like the ELC?)

  7. According to the Wiki Pz II Ausf. G was armed only with "7.92x94 mm MG141 automatic rifle". That doesn't look too dangerous :)

    1. So where the Pz I's but load em with gold ammo, and go scout.
      But I bet WG will give them a 2cm guns.

    2. This is a variant of the AT rifle, regular PzI had only these:

    3. My point still stands.

    4. There was a Panzer I conversion with a 20mm Breda done by Spanish. Maybe they'll include that.

      Delete
  8. Do you know the Tiers of the TDs? With the Uni Carrier, we now have 10 steelwheelchairs. So either one is premium or we have a double in one Tier.
    Or am I completely wrong?

  9. I´ve got a question regarding the А39 Tortoise:

    what is the biggest/most powerfull gun it could mount?
    Because everytime i only find the 94mm Ordnance QF 32 pounder and this one seems a litte to small for tier9.

    1. Does it? Well, they can modify its rate of fire and accuracy, I think it'll do fine.

      Delete
    2. lets hope, that they balance it well and a really high rof paired with a good accuracy and high pen could make it unique.

  10. VK1602 Leopard at tier 5 would be a disaster. Looks like I'll also be selling my Luchs, as I do not want to be thrown in tier 8 matches 24/7.

    1. Why not? If the scout is balanced for the tier range it operates in, it will work just fine. As always, you're intended to be killed in 1-2 shots, doesn't matter if you're playing with (against) tiers 6, 7 or 8. Leopard would definitely need some traverse speed or terrain resistance buff, as with it's inferior maneuverability it wouldn't be neither fun nor balanced on higher tiers where most MTs would outrun it. And some DPM buff, which will probably come with a new gun, to be able to pose any threat to the SPGs at all.
