Tank Preview: Kanonenjagdpanzer 105

Many war stories in history involve heroic acts of sacrifice, or valiant charges in the frontlines that prove so fearsome that their enemies flee before them. In these stories, the hero is a character that's both strong and brave.

But yet, there's also another kind of hero that strikes from the shadows, one that safeguards his home and family by making sure the enemy never gets the chance to draw near.

The Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 is that kind of hero.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly


The Good

  • Amazing support vehicle in the right hands
  • Standard penetration (268mm) is good enough for most aimed shots
  • Premium ammo's penetration (330mm) can cause considerable damage to higher tier vehcles
  • Low profile and good camo values - basically the E25's bigger brother

The Bad

  • Sluggish acceleration from stationary
  • Fixed gun traverse
  • Slow reverse speed
  • HEAT Premium ammo has slower shell velocity and is ineffective against spaced armour

The Ugly

  • Paper-thin armour


  • General Strategy: Remember the E25, another annoying little tank destroyer that zips around the map taking potshots at the enemy while staying hidden from view? The Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 is just a slightly larger tank destroyer, but it plays exactly the same.
  • Firepower: The Kanonenjagdpanzer 105, true to its namesake, wields a 105mm gun. It's decent, but the Alpha damage isn't anything to write home about. However, it's the accuracy, shell velocity and rate of fire that makes it shine. With it, you'll be able to position yourself in a good sniping nest and fire a round or two into an unsuspecting enemy vehicle before relocating to another area of the map.
  • Protection: Let's be honest - the Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 may as well be covered in toilet paper. But you're not here to play a heavy tank, are you?
  • Mobility: With 500 Engine Power and 20.33 Specific Power, you'll be skittering from cover to cover with no effort at all. Use your speed to constantly maintain enough distance between you and your enemies to fire undetected, escape when the situation gets too dangerous, or relocate to a breach in the frontlines to help shore up defences.
