I had sort of assumed that the Pz 2 J was dead and buried and an easy to kill joke.  But dusting it out of mothballs and getting 5 wins in a row with it just now has disabused me.

It's certainly very funny to play.  Perhaps less amusing for those pinging hundreds of no-pens off it.

 

That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die.

It's just more situational vs say 6 years ago due to all the new guns added there of late. Face of the newer premiums or TD's and you might get punished for your mistakes faster.

 

I love to take my SU-76i out when the II J's on sale. Or even the Pak 40. You know what they say...

6th game was very disappointing, it was a loss but I still got top score, blocked 61 hits, and killed 4 enemies.

 

Skill will out.

Now on 7/1 wins and aced it on last one.  It's a tough tank to handle

 

Victory!

I think the key is to make full use of its light tank mobility

Make that 8/1, and counting, as the man says in Diamonds are Forever

 

I think one of the funniest things about the 2J (apart from being able to win it it) is that most enemies see it on the map as a light pz 2 that can be penned by anything and die wondering why none of their shots went through.

Isn't the Gtraktor just a Pz IVA?

less dpm, but you get side-skirts and hilarious values of gun depression / elevation.
