The text compares it to the E25 in most ways, but nothing concerning camo values.

It seems that E25 retains camo values after firing (if static).

Is it the same with this TD?

And what are exactly its camo values?

E25 does not retain camo values after firing, it just has a higher rating than other TDs after firing. It was not affected by the small decrease from the global camo nerf. This effect is blown out of proportion, you will still be spotted if you fire within 15m of a bush, just a few % less likely than a normal TD.

 

The KJP is nothing like the E25, only in top speed perhaps and that it too is a turretless TD. As mentioned by others as well, it is just a turretless RU251.

comparing E25 with this is just a trick to get in more cash. Marketing ftw. At least they know how to get cash in. Somebody has to spend so i can enjoy it freely :P

 

Wargaming logic:

We recommend you join a platoon of medium or light tanks to make your life easier

...the Kanonenjagdpanzer! (say Ka-no-nen-yagd-pan-zer).

 

I failed to pronounce it correctly, but I consider my pronunciation much cooler.

 

Kan-one-nya-G.D.P.-anz-er?.

No one of all future premium tanks that will be included will have the preferential MM...fix it in your heads

Don't know the camo values as yet but I expects its similar to the JagdpanzerIV its about the same size, if so its also not far off E25 values.

 

JagdpanzerIV 23.77 - 14,25 - 5.87  thats stationary  -  moving  -  firing

 

E25 is 25.14  -  15.25  -  8.02

 

for completeness the Spahpanzer RU251 is not as good 17.39  -  17.39  -  4.14 turret adding height probably accounts for that.

 

Whats the view range of the Kanonen

Right, I don't plan on wasting any neurons with this information, not since I'm the one expected to pay for what they are selling.

They are coming up with all kinds of premium tanks lately in order to milk the EU server so that their decision to keep prices in Russia accessible doesn't come biting them in the [edited]when it's financial report time. The least they can do is state in the description of the tank if it has pref MM or not.

I think they said earlier they will not introduce any more preferential mm vehicles in the game and will replace all current vehicles with non-preferential mm vehicles.

 Let’s start with open maps like Malinovka and Prokhorovka, which are ideal for this tank destroyer.

 

These are the ONLY open maps in WoT (I don't count The Steppes- how often you can shoot something through this open field? Almost never, everybody lemmingtrains to one of lower grounds).
 

Block Quote

 Thanks to the high AP penetration you usually won’t need any HEAT shells

 It's the second WORST penetration among tier 8 TDs after Jagdtiger 8.8, which has limited MM and is being removed from the store. It's even worse than SU-101 and that's something. [edited]

The folk on the US server seem to think that the Kanone is rather easy to spot and (as well as lacking armour) lacking in firepower.

 

This, it seems, translates as 'radioactive pile of semi-molten slag' in fairly short order...

Personally, I was more interested in the 'collectors gem' light tanks which have popped up in the shop and WG appear to have forgotten to announce.

 

Shame the map selection at the relevant tier is utter pants these days...

The only problem with it is practically no armour and it faces tier 10 tanks with max viewrange.

Its a good tank on the right map with the right team.

Buffing the Jagdtiger 88 and removing its preferential mm might have been better

 

Bring back the AMX13-57 and the Scorpion and then drop the padding off the Kanonenjagdpanzer.

Introduce a policy in the store where IF you buy premium time gold or more premium tanks at the same time you make a saving.

I for one will be a regular customer.

 

I simply want to decide for myself what I buy and when I buy it

Rewarding players who spend more while allowing them the flexability to decide what to buy would be a good move.

 

1750 gold is 5 or 6 pounds, 30 days premium just over 7 so I assume the Kanonen's price to be around £23 pretty good price for a tier 8 TD but im worried about its ability to survive in most games.
