The new Tier VII German TD, the Pz Sfl. V's stock gun is the 10.5cm Kanone 18.

Why not make this gun an option on the Auf Panther?

Because no one on wg side is interested in buffing AFKP?
Or is there any official comment that shows their opinion towards the AFKP performance?
edit:
Still laughing when i see the "pros" on wotwiki
-Fast acceleration with a respectful top speed, despite its bulk, which allows it to relocate quickly and offer support where it is needed
-Good penetration for a tier 7 vehicle with a high RoF and amazing accuracy.
-Good Radio and view range
-Retains camo bonus while moving.
-Can mount 10.5cm howitzer if required
-Thick hull armor for a light tank (Same hull armor as the Panther), if angled properly can bounce guns with up to 160mm of pen.
-Good for ramming due to its weight
It seems no one at wg realized that AFKP has to fight against T9/T10

What about the size of the gun, like gun breech and so on? Would it fit into this tiny turret? Even if it did, I'd expect VERY bad gun depression.
But I'd love to see any kind of visible buff to AFK panther, it really needs one.

Most wiki entries on tanks suck bad.

You might want this then: http://zxhistory.blo...zed-cannon.html

Getting serious, I'm trying to persuade WG into giving us something less insane as a light tank, I might manage entice them with a certain 33 ton project...
That said, the only hope to get a decent light line is to persuade WG to just ditch AFK Panther and let us have some more rational light tank design.

yup, when compared to normal T7 Panther it has better mobility, compared to T71 not so much.
i use mine mostly as enemy light hunter, then its weight can be used effectively.

compared to its nearest rivals the T71 & WZ131 its lacking in my eyes.
T71 has awesome mobility with autoloader and Wz also has good mobility and nice gun selection. what the Aufkl. Panther needs is some Alfa on the Konisch or http://wiki.worldoft...5_cm_Waffe_0725 as its called now ;) 135 is low compared to the 150 (T71) and 200/250 (WZ-131) the AMX 13t 75 also has a UP gun if you ask me 144@135 (pen/alfa).

on mobility Aufkl. Panther has the biggest engine but the lowest Hp/t due to its 41t bulk this is in my view not correctly represented in its HP pool.

on topic: i mounted the Konisch asap and have no regrets, i just like the faster aimtime and penetration aposed to the derp which only works against arties. where as the Konisch can be used in flanking position against HT/MT.
