Looks like II J, but moves faster.

 

Seeing it bounce every single shot I'm sure it's II J. Only tank that has to be loaded 100% APCR  to pierce a can of beer.


 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

Panzer II J

Yep, I think they boosted the speed. Still useless for mm, but a TON of fun in warstories. Been using it as a battery ram and its working quite well.

Is that tigerfibel? And if so... what percentage on a skill/perk training do you get using that tank in tigerfibel? Guessing the silver is poor or a lose?

Yes. I dont remember on the silver earning. 10k to 20k silver maybe? I dont have single skill on this tank so I didnt care much at all. Just felt like driving and shooting without having to worry about getting penned.  Added a spall liner for [edited]and giggles and started ramming tanks.

Ah yeah, I was thinking I'd let the grandson play using the panzer II j in tigerfibel and get some free crew training while he's at it. Cheers anyways mate.

Dakkakaka... For the Emperor! Squash thoose greenskins. 

The Cannons sound a bit like naval guns (wheres WoW?) , but the MGs and Autocannons sound really fun now.

Pz IIJ is a rare Promo Tank aint it?

If you play PS4 you can get Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J PS free from PS store when you get PS Plus account.  There is also free Viper T7 Combat Car that's like Luchs of tier 2.  Viper has 12.7mm auto cannon with fire rate is 101.85 rounds/min, it's a lots of fun as it can only see other tier 2 tanks.  Viper has 70% exp bonus, I have not tried it in the War Stories, but that's something that I'm planning to do next time when I play the game.

Its not an auto cannon. Its nothing more than a .50 with a 50 round drum. That oddly enough takes 50 [edited]years to reload.

If  you've got the V/IV in your garage let him use that, it's seriously good on the first tiger mission and not too shabby training a crew if you use boosts.

Plus any training is better then no training and what other use is the IIJ?
