Description[edit source]

The Panzerkampfwagen I is a german light tank. Originally intended only as a training tank, its twin machineguns firing 7.92mm armor piercing bullets proved effective against infantry and lightly armored vehicles.
― Heroes & Generals


  • First and most important tip. Do not engage enemy armor.
  • Your main role is to fight infantry, protect your team assets such as tanks and infantry alike.
  • If you have been spotted by enemy armor, run.
  • Try firing in bursts, as you have two machine guns in your turret, you will need to reload often, this will help to conserve ammo.
  • It is recommended to buy 2 Hart rounds for it, so that you can swap between them to force a reload. To do this, buy it through the ribbon of the tank.
  • As with all German tanks, it is highly recommended that you buy a camo for it, to help with ambushes.
  • While the Panzer I A is ineffective against most enemy armor, it can be used as a mobile anti-aircraft gun, And with good cover and planning, the Panzer I can be deadly to enemy fighters and paratrooper planes.
  • you're an infantry support tank, not a main battle tank. do NOT engage enemy armor unless you really have to.
