not for me, i was shooting like 10shots at targets, and i though i was doing good damage, after battle i check, i do 300 ram damage and 300damage from 10shots, i check after every battle i do 400-700damage, with so much shots fired, with konish and ram i can do on average about 1k damage, if lucky battle even 2k 3k, few battles ago i managed to sneaky kill batchat he empied his clip onto some heavy, and i go full speed ram him and finish him of with konish... tough this is very rare fun moment in this tank...

I get over 1K damage frequnrtly with my 105 on my 28.01.  It scores damage almost every shot.  I still use the Konisch my Auf P though.

-rage on-

After 330 games, i give up, this Tank is officially dead now and the only tank i rate as unplayable.

The konisch alpha nerf was to much.

30 games after patch 8.8 and my damage dropped exact by 30%, if i stay out off cover and try a second shot, i die, if i try to scout, i die (no matter if passive or active), if i try to flank, i die.

If someone still drive this tank and have the ueberguide to make it work, well then post here.

And please don't come with arguments like "stay back behind arty and snipe", a stugIII would do this better than the AFKP.

but u dont understand play 10k games on it, get 5perks on each crewmen, then you can definitely be kinda,  maybe, maybe not ok, but maybe average and slightly useful or not really useful in battle....

Maybe if they nerf it enough AFK P will be replaced by a saner option...
I'm actually researching on the E-25 and there was supposed to be a recon version, although no drawings are available.

All i can hope for is that the tier 8 German light tank will come soon and put this all this misery behind me.

Most likely not this year. I heard there are some problems with introducing RU251.

This is also my biggest beef with this tank. Low agility and not that great gun i can live with. But the fact that you get spotted with a camo trained crew from distances which you can't spot yourself is just stupid. Even with recon + situational awareness and vents + coated optics and camo on all crewmembers i still get spotted by meds and sometimes heavies which i can't see myself.

As for the upcoming tier 8 light. I might just sell the AFK panther then as soon as i get around 100k experience on it. That should be enough for the next one.

same here, another problem i find myself in, i used to be able to get lots of spotting damage done with tier 4-6 german lights, but with AFK.Panther i dont know if its bugged or not, only spotting damage i do is if i detrack, I mean it looks like im spotting the enemy, after battle i go check, nope 100spotting damage.. i dont know,, it just seems bugged or something

It's not a bug, your teambuddies simply have more viewrange than you (and better camo ;)). (T9/T10)

This is a dead tank now. Playing 95% solo  I managed a 55% win rate and 920 average damage 2.93 spotted and .82 killed. it was incredibly hard work getting out to do a half moon scout the run back to snipe or rush to passive spot and wait not daring to shoot if anything is with 350m of you and now if you do take that shot it does so little you are screwed.
