Tips

  • Being a tank destroyer with a hull cannon means you need to be facing enemy tanks at all times - a problem when anti-tank infantry or other tanks can sneak behind you and shoot at your weak spots.
  • Because you are not very mobile, stay away from city zones if you are not being supported by infantry.
  • Although this tank is equipped with an MG34 turret on the top, it is rather ineffective due to the limited cone of fire and the gunner's vulnerability to enemy infantry.
  • The armor on the front is very thick compared to the american tank destroyer (M18 Hellcat) and is impervious to small cannon fire from tanks such as the M5A1 Stuart.
  • Together with your powerful main gun and APCR ammo, you can take out any medium tanks and tank destroyers in 2 hits.
