The mobility and sneakiness of a light tank combined with the precision and deadliness of a tank destroyer.

This thing is genuinely great imho.

Not the most impressive alpha compared to most others, and doesn't spoil you with a turret like most others either.

it's really fast, has good camo, and the gun has amazing pen and accuracy.

Very reliable, and more satisfying to play than something like a Skorpion, at least for me.

Are we talking about the same tank?The gun is okay but i would not say it is fast.The normal kanjapz is fast firing but this one with the 105mm is not.Or at least it is slow firing for me.

AFAIK Wargaming released the Kanonen 105 because the original one was weak, so I don't think WG going to sell the original one again. But you never know, their opinion can change (that happened with the M6A2E1 for example).

I think he meant the tank itself was fast and has good camo - which is true.

 

It is a good tank to play sneakily, can reposition and switch flanks well. But just stay hidden, because it's usually insta-delete when spotted.

I referred to the tank being fast, which is why I typed "it's" infront of it when I stopped mentioning the gun.

I guess I could have written it a bit clearer. My bad. ;)

I am quite enjoying the Cda, so what makes the Kanonen 105 much better in your opinion? (I have tank I want to get rid of, so I might swap it for the K105)

Well, they are more or less same as we know, but there are few things making Kanon more comfortable:

1. Mobility - there are no more small maps incoming, so no need to explain how it’s important to change flank faster or go for decap base etc.

2. Gun handling - better aiming time + gun traverse limit (even 15/15* much better than 10/10*) along with vehicle traverse speed ( 50*against 30*) makes Kanon more competitive.

3. HEAT penetration (330 against 310) - seems like little difference, but Kanon can easily fill the Mouse’s cheeks up with its shells:)

Those are the most important differences, but ofc it depends on a playstyle. For me mobility here is more important than +~70mm of armor and a little better camo. I don’t use camo net and bino, but always optics/vent/rammer.;)
