PzKpfw II Ausf. J

Where can we buy this ? it must have been on sale at some point because it has games played:

http://wot-news.com/...rver/eu/norm/en

Its stats are rather interesting, weak as hell cannon, but tough as hell armour. Weird:

Not available on EU server, just a few free codes have been given to people attending gamescom at Cologne. Only those player have it, you can not buy it.

Not really impressive tbh, weak engine, so probably poor acceleration and the gun is a joke at tier 3.

But armour wise it's really good for it's tier.

It has been on Chinese servers for ages. Just another ding-dong machine. It is so utterly boring seeing two PzII-J fighting each other...

It's a T3 premium, it will see T5 and be destroyed.

No because the Ausf. J has special MM, similar to the Valentine's.

Like armour makes it a good tank? Look at the AMX40 for reference...

If the enemy can't damage you it's a good tank. Similar to the Valentine in an on tier match :)

Another tank that is either only availble to the russian servers or not available at at all...

Pity.

Looked like it would be fairly fun to play around in. Incredibly low pen though. Would probably need (dare i say it!) Gold ammo.

Yes, but if you can't damage the enemy, you are just a useless bunker.

As other players have said, this tank was given away in limited numbers to some players who attended gamescom.  Whenever we have a major event like gamescom or e3 we like to have something special just for people attending as a way of saying thanks for coming. Yes it would be nice for everyone to have one, but then that totally takes away the whole idea of offering something as a limited and special event. The only different those people attending gamescom had over you is that they went to the event.

I'm not jealous, seeing the skill of the PzII J's in game...

I have one of these marvels, and still a few codes left :P (If you feel like paying contact me, otherwise these are reserved for good friends).

You meet tier 4 max and the armour is ridiculous. Tier 3 tds will have huge trouble penetrating your front, if you are in a t3 only match you are pretty much invincible and can do all sorts of funny stuff.
It is however heavyly advised to carry a few gold rounds with you, otherwise you will not damage much.

My standart strategy:

1) Find an enemy
2) drive to him
3) carefully seach his tank for weakspots and ignore him shelling you
4) drive around him searching for weakspots

if no weakspot found either
5.1) load premium and go to 4), or:
5.2) drive away and find another target

It is shure not an effective tank in terms of killing others, but its way tougher than a maus on its relative tier.



EDIT: no more asking for codes, there are no more codes! They all expiered on feb 1st 2013.
