With regards to the E 25, what is the tech tree equivalent to it?

 

I don't think there is one, the Borsig seems to be the tech tree equivalent of the Skorpion G, but the E 25??

 

Talking of German TD's I had a good game in the Nashorn the other day, is the St Emil something to look forward to?

There isn't. 

St Emil is a very very tough grind although the top gun is powerful.

Everything else about it is turd.

Stug III G is the closest, it has a same gun, but it can't ram anything even when it has thicker armor.

Yeah, closest equivalent is kind of a Stug IV on crack.

More than the Stug3 I would say it's the JPz4, at tier 6. It uses the same gun too (at least if you prefere pen and DPM over alpha) and is faster than the Stug. 

But, yeh, E25 is quite unic in mobility compartment...

I would also say stug 3, the jagdpz may be faster but is also a tier higher (faces t8 with better armor and view range).

Stug 3 is a nice td, but don't expect to do any yolo rush like e25.

I would probably say the marder 38t. Good gun + mobility. Only you won't bounce anything with it.

Stug III is closest to the e25.

 

The Sturer Emil is a very nasty grind. The top gun hits very hard, but the mobility is horrendous, and if spotted you die. I really disliked the Sturer Emil and was very glad to sell it. The tier VIII on that line is however delightful.

On tier 7? No there is no close equivalent to it. As the E25 is basically a planned upgrade for any Pz III based Design. As in.. Stugs.

They had an E10 planned for an upgrade on any 38t based design. I suspect that would.. not work too well on tier 4 all things considering now after the E25 unless they gave it... bad camo vs the Hetzer.

Sturer Emil is bad?

 

I did not notice it. For some reason not even clickers shoot me when I drive it. Not a keeper because map design and a lot of things but it's a very capable vehicle.

I like the ST. Emil... But it still doesn't change the fact that it's still a silly grind as the stock gun on it is worse than even the top gun on the flak bus at tier 5. It's one of few tanks in the game that has a worse stock gun then the top on anything below it.

Thanks guys I always know i can come to the forums for balanced views, i now have the St Emil, and was disappointing it does not have the traverse of the Nashorn, still onwards and upwards as I hope the Borsig is a decent TD.

Silly yes, but I had quite a few good games with the stock gun. Not saying it's good but rather good enough.

Although 57K exp for the gun when the vehicle following it is 71K, that's insanity.

Borsig has a useless gun depression that's gonna kill you sometimes if you can't deal with it right, it's slow and can't keep up with your team when you need to relocate.

 

The pros are you are undetectable if you stay still, have a turret and all guns from that tank onward are Tier X. WTF IV isn't an improvement, outside speed and some "armour".

Everyone is thinking TDs but an equivalent would probably be a light tank.  Maybe the ELC before they nerfed it.

 

Or the T67

The hetzer is the tank that looks alike the most.
