why did the jagdtiger has bad camouflage against the other anti-tanks.
because I have since today a jagdtiger. I can not handle this tank because every where am I immediately spotted even at start ingame. I know germans master camofage in tanks. I cant get in position at start with out getting. my object 704 become almost never spotted i know it has the best camouflage. here I can just not play him. does any one agree with me on this?

Sorry for mine English this best could writePosted Image

I agree, I have a lot of battles played in it and I find that artillery destroy this tank. If you are not behind a building or rock its game over because of artillery, if you are not in hulls down you are dead because of the lower glacis plate. The problem:

Theres almost no positions on any of the many maps where you can be hulls down AND safe from artillery.
The Jagdtiger cannot hide, it will be seen from many tanks max view ranges, its made to survive due to armour and HP rather than camo but unfortunately WG have made that impossible and will not fix it in the future.

I personally think its right that out of the 4 (soon to be 5) TDs that Obj704 has a higher camo value, but why on earth are the other TDs especially the Jagdtiger have such low camo value in comparison.

https://docs.google....RBVlJDSlE#gid=2
^
A table of camo values showing the Obj704 has just under 3x more base camo than the JT, if im not mistaken the JT is not 3 times taller than an Obj704.

http://forum.worldof...echanics-guide/
^(3rd spoiler down)
This link my have old data (Panther II still teir 9 here) but we can see from this that the Obj704 has (or had) 5-6x better camo than the JT, which is just stupid.

Actually they can leave the camofalge, just increase the frontal armor(lower part).

yes that what day can do to front armor kinda ever poor compare to the other tanks even low tier can go throw u easy. but camouflage should increased because kinda strange if med and scout tanks spot u form start  every fast u need get in position. even at el haluf remember 1 shot both jagdtigers with SU-14 as spg with AP shells because were spotted every fast form there own base. the armor would mater much if spg hit u.

Camo net with crew at 100% cammo and the commander with 6th sense is the way you need to go. True it won't work in city maps but it does work in open maps. Currently 1920 efficiency on my JT using this method.

Just hide, use the bushes wisely, noting how the camo system works and let other people scout for you.

It does lead me to conclusion that the JT's view range is bugged though. It definitely cannot see 393m+ buffs.

I agree with darth realy; jadtiger is realy hard rebound the bullets ,even from front armor....camo is realy bad too.... game makers must do sth realy. if thy do same thing to stug E-100 too I don't find any further more words to them. German tanks against other nations started to be weak !!!! german tanks are ww2 tanks ;but other nation tanks are cold war tanks. it is realy unfair. germans need buffs right now, thx.

JT is becoming fine museum piece and all those changes they have making doesnt help it a bit.

Remove L/61 from it and it would make fine T8 TD.

(for a dumb fecks - im not saying it should loose L/61...)

JT's camo isn't bad.

Something that doesn't exist can't be bad.

That thing's literally the size of a house, and you expect camouflage from it? Stick to the low-profile critters like StuG and such if you want to hide.

The T95 may be flat, but it has the dimensions of someones female parent derriere, and yet has a better camo rating.
