The only bad 'light' tank in the game is the AMX 40 and lower tiers, but even the AMX 40 probably has its merits if you don't regard it as a light tank. The worst line is the French one for me, as I started to play that first together with the M5A1 Stuart. Having said that, I only had good times with the M5 Stuart, but I understand it is pretty horrible now.

Ramming was fun. Will I miss it though? Not one bit.

And how many chances you get to ram a LT yoloing you full speed and not turning/shooting you? 1 in a million.

 

Oneshot ramming a 13/90 doesnt happen often no, but getting nice ramming kills and damage happens a lot in the AFK panther. I had a folder full of ramkill replays saved up to make some sort of compilation video, but never had the time to do so. I'd say the chance of getting a nice ramkill is ~20%. You just have to play for your rams, read the map and be at the right place at the right time.

SPIC will have a 240 alpha 90mm gun with a 3 round autoloader. so thats 730 alpha in around (if 2 sec interval) 4 second. thats better than afk panther popgun that bounces every shot and does pathetic damage. how can you miss that thing? i dident bother ramming much in AFK Panther because  most times i got shot by my own team far too much.

I do wish it could be kept, but as it's not, I'm also worrying about other things:

  • It has 5 crew members, will they all be used in new tank? What'll happen to any that aren't used?
  • Will I keep the equipment and stuff I've installed on it?

RIP Aufklärungspanther. You were hated by many, but I loved you.

 

Just checked the test server btw: The radio operator and loader are not used on the Spähpanzer and were retrained to the Panther 8.8. Equipment was placed in the depot. Camo, emblems and inscriptions carry over to the Spähpanzer.

afk was a ramming machine on everything that had paper armor ( scouts but batchat, CDC, leopard1, etc...) and it has a fast and pricise gun, i could get weak spots at long range or the fast rate could finish off wounded/rammed targets.

it s not a scout, it s a fire support tank.....like the amx30/leo/pta are not a med but  2nd line snipers.....

 

and many many, forgets that the afk panther weights 40t....and some tries to ram u , u stop and wait and even if it s armored meds...they will suffer a lot versus a simple "scout"

 

i played all the scouts in the game..i will try out the new german T7 but the feedbacks are not very positive and might end worse than the afk for many of u....

Great, having looked over the Sp1c's implementation....

 

Not only are they killing off my favourite tank, they're giving us a turd on tracks to replace it.  Now, instead of an unusual and pretty specialised tank, we'll have a tank which is pretty damn awful at everything.  They'd damn well better bring back the Aufkl as a premium.

Please make them stop.  Even if you aren't one of the ones who loves the Awesomepanther, take pity on those of us who do.

 

Edit:

Ooops, didn't realise I was double posting.  My previous didn't load for some reason.  Sorry about that.

I believe this change is to discourage me and many from buying more gold & premium acc.  Ramming mediums, dealing 3k dmg, of which 1k be for shooting, oh well.. I just cannot comment on this in any civilized manner because every time my faith in WGs... "way of dealing with things" is almost restored they pull off something ridiculous like this.

What a change..... From the one ramming others to -> run the hell away from other tanks because they might ram you to death.

10 ton tank with no armour at all (10-15 mm) makes it a perfect HE target dummy aswell. 

While the gun is decent the SPIC will be inferiour to pretty much every other tier 7 light (maybe except the AMX 13-75) in terms of fire power/dpm .

My point is that the new tank doesn't have any strong points and for that alone you will miss the ramming of the Awesomepanther.

Which is weird, because it was supposed to weigh only 6,5 tons. Giving it that would at least help with the currently mediocre mobility.

Heh, I bet.  It was always stupidly pleasing when enemies just killed themselves on you in this thing.  Almost as pleasing as that time I rammed a WZ so hard he flipped onto his side and I ended up on top of him.  Or bouncing top tier TDs off the frontal plate.

 

God, good times, good times.

Yes, Very much! I love the Awfulpanther, I'm not saying it's a good tank or that I did well in it. The tank is pretty op when spamming nothing but gold in it, well that goes for most tanks.


In comparison the SP 1.C is a TERRIBLE tank compared to the Awfulpanther... I'm extremely sad to see it go. I wish they kept it as a stepladder between two different lines like the KV-13.

Good luck for surviving long enough to empty your three shell clip ONCE.

Yeah the single shot looks the only sane route to take, unless they buff the aim time or allow it to take a gld. Not looking forward to awesome panzer going bye bye
