 8,8 cm PaK 43 Jagdtiger

Many opponents will run for cover when they see a 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger. Its rounds can penetrate armours that are 152-252 mm thick. Not to mention, the 10.9 second reload gives it an extremely high rate of fire. High accuracy also allows you to take down enemies easily by attacking weak spots. This TD can deal 180-300 HP of damage.

Although the Jagdtiger is powerful, it is extremely slow and has weak armour in the sides and rear. Use this for sniper roles and find good hiding spots to avoid detection. Long-range strategies are your best bets. Better yet, find a good team that can protect your sides.

Pros:
  • Very strong superstructure
  • Extremely precise gun that easily hits weak spots
  • Outstanding reload time and consequently DPM (2666 DPM base)
  • Ability to hull down
  • Excellent aiming time
  • Decent armour for Tier VIII
  • Excellent view range
  • Good amount of hit points
  • Thick tracks can absorb damage
  • Can engage multiple frontal targets easily - great for holding chokepoints
Cons:
  • Slow traverse speed
  • If "tracked" while going full speed, the momentum of such weight will turn the tank 90°, exposing its potentially thin sides
  • Poor Alpha damage - cannot compete with "peek-a-boo" tactics, and most halfway decent players won't just sit and let you shoot them repetitively
  • Can easily catch on fire if hit in the lower glacis
  • Side armour is weak
  • Large superstructure combined with slow speed make this tank very easy for artillery to hit
  • Immobility combined with lack of turret makes this tank have a huge lack of versatility

 Löwe

The Löwe is a Tier VIII Premium heavy tank. It has an excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy with better accuracy & penetration compared to a Tiger II’s top gun. The excellent view range allows you to earn credits quickly.

The tank’s upper glacis armour is strong enough to withstand 122mm of penetration and its well-sloped front of turret can bounce of shells even from Tier IX TDs.

Pros:
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy
  • Better accuracy and penetration than what Tiger II's top gun
  • Very strong gun mantle (comparable to JagdTiger's superstructure)
  • Excellent money-maker
  • Excellent view range
  • Upper glacis is strong enough against IS's 122mm
  • Well sloped front of the turret can bounce even Tier IX guns from TD's
Cons:
  • Large size, easy artillery target
  • Large lower glacis
  • Catches fire easily
  • Tank has under average HP/weight ratio
  • Upper glacis isn’t strong enough to resist guns with 200mm or higher penetration guns

 E-25

The E-25 is a German tier 7 premium tank destroyer.

This beast could pop a shot into an enemy tank once every 3 seconds. Its superior speed of 65km/h allows it to move into action quickly. And its Power/Wt Ratio allows it to climb places fairly quickly.

The E-25 does, however, have low penetration abilities. But its accuracy will allow you to hit weak spots with ease. It also has weak armour, so be sure to utilize this TD's speed and move around to avoid getting hit.

Team up with some good scouts and fire away at located enemies. The E-25 makes a great support sniper.

Pros:
  • Amazing speed and mobility
  • Very low silhouette.
  • Insane RoF - a round every 3 seconds
  • Excellent camo rating
  • Can scout (if needed)
  • Outstanding accuracy, far superior to the regular 7,5 cm StuK 42 L/70
  • Can be played as a ghost recon sniper
  • Very useful for quick support
  • Special MM, encounters up to Tier VIII tanks
Cons:
  • Low armour
  • Low Alpha damage and poor penetration for its tier
  • Crew members get knocked out fairly easily
  • Small ammo capacity for its RoF


Panther/M10

Did you know that the Panther/ M10 was the first tank to sport a different colour from the other tanks of its nation? Performance-wise, this German Tier 7 medium tank has great accuracy for its tier, and superb speed and traverse. It also has the highest HP out of its tier 7 medium tank counterparts.

Although it does not deal very high damage, it is balanced by a good rate of fire. Be sure to keep moving to avoid getting hit on the sides and rear armor where the tank is at its weakest.

Other than that, this tank has low repair costs and high credit income, making it more cost-effective in comparison to other Panthers.

Pros:
  • Good rate of fire
  • Great accuracy for its tier, and decent accuracy while moving
  • Excellent speed and traverse
  • Decent acceleration
  • Excellent turret traverse
  • Low repair cost and high credit income
  • Highest hit points out of all tier 7 medium tanks
  • Never sees tier 9 fights unlike the regular Panther
  • Least expensive tier 7 premium tank
  • Relatively thick turret armour combined with a decent gun mantlet/gun depression and lack of easily targeted cupola make it pretty good at hulldown
  • Upper glacis is effective at bouncing shots from tier 7 and lower tanks due to the average thickness combined with its sloping
  • Excellent support tank for tier 7 heavies
Cons:
  • Mediocre thickness on the armor
  • Retains the thin lower glacis weakpoint from the Panther. When penetrated, the tanks tends to light on fire (cover this as much as you can)
  • Fairly low damage per shot, but average compared to the tier 7 mediums. Only the T20 has a large difference in terms of alpha damage
  • Barely sufficient penetration against tier 8 tanks, run away from Tiger II's or IS-3's unless shooting sides/rear/weakspots
