If you're a collector, a fan of the accurate German guns and in need of a crew trainer this one is cheap to buy. I don't like the prospect of that HT level of power to weight though so i'll pass.

German accuracy defined. I love the Panther 8.8 even if its not the best, but the gun is just YUMMY. Think this smaller brother has same accuracy gun. Only downside is the mobility.

So if the mobility will be adjusted (buff mobility - +10, +15... ) , would it be better?

Hey Sstyx, well yeah if you have a good gun you want to effectively bring that gun fast to strategic places, which is really hard with 10.61 hp/t ratio, i think a little mobility buff would do good for this tank without making it too OP. Tweaking either engine power or lowering the resistances:)

 It is real slow mover,....if mobility was adjusted this tank would still not be OP but more playable yes .

Yes with a +15% yes to its ridiculous 317 hp engine making it around a new 360hp ~ 370hp power engine (still very slow btw really needs 400hp engine if you want to sell more of them?

>> but not a slight 15hp buff to engine power :sceptic:  that's just trolling us and would make not much of a difference to its mobility or anything

No, who needs Medium tank with more than 10 Power/weight ratio.

Yes, if the mobility would be on par with the Pz. IV H it would be an instant buy for me.

 

Talking about instant buys, how can i get hold of a Panther 8.8?
