better wait for any possible 10th anniversary discounts, IF anyone is still putting money in this with the threat of crew 2.0 (et al) on the horizon.

 

my recommendation: don't give WG any money as long as we don't know what huge changes the game might undergo within the next 1-2 years.

Might have been a good deal, if not for EBRs....

I have it and i'm trying to find out what it actualy is. Imo the gun is very reliable so that's a big pro. It's fast too but also as big as a Russian heavy. Sofar something like support medium/light crossover seems to kind of work. I like it but it ain't a light in my book. And sadly i'm sure i'm not going to get it really working.

That's just what the EBRs want you to think! Do not fall for their deceptions and propaganda, but shoot them in the face instead! :izmena:

Its odd when you consider we get posts saying how good the M 41 90 black dog is yet the HWK 30 which is better in many respects isnt.

 

Unicorn of Steel has it right its not a tru light its camo value isnt great so scouting is a bit of a challenge.

Its more a medium with no armour but better camo.

410 view range is very good you can comfortably push that to almost 500 with a decent crew.

Gun is good and you have AP CR as standard then HEAT and finally HE

You have decent shell velocity on the APCR and surprisingly the HEAT  the HE is really HEP or HESH its got 102 pen on the black dog they call it HEP and its got the same stats as the HWKs HE.

 

SO better view range slightly better camo bigger engine so better specific power.

Lower ROF but generally better gun handling.

Main negative is no gun depression over the rear of the tank its -10 to the front and sides but almost none over the engine

Let's face it, even a Löwe is a better "medium" than CDC. :teethhappy:

A good tank before the introduction of ludicrous wheeled French vehicles.

Not with the current Maps in the Game ~ corridor and corridor and City then City then brawling Maps ~ HWK 30 has butter for armor and worse its Big like Huge more a Medium Tank

its shells bounce with depressing regularity ~ and suicide for close in brawling with armored HT and cannot run away, small Maps zero escape routes (which WG likes very much

 

Even the so-called Open Maps are not Open really, full of dead zones suicide zones and yes corridors for "comfortable HT idiot press W key play" 

 

And not forget the French roller skate wheeled LT,s make every LT look utter crap rubbish (well done WG

looks great though but that's really all can say

In  the HWK 30 you turn into a prey... and shoot with your peashooter on a distance it's more a long range careful stalker
