it is tier 8, so jagdpanther with autoloader  VS 10s sounds interesting.

 

Oh, only a three round clip? The thing historically had six rounds.

Pictures of the autoloader do exist. Might dig one up later. 


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Unless it has better penetration than other 8.8s or and like 1.5 intraclip reload time it needs pmm. I would rather it have pmm tho.

I thought no auto loaders was a definite trait of the Germans? (Low tier machine guns excluded). Screw all that I guess.

 

Also thank god, the Germans were short on premium TDs.

You missed the part where the Germans were exploring and actively prototyping autoloading systems.  There IS historical precedent.... even though “another German TD” is as exciting as McDonald’s making “another new cheeseburger”.

the more i think about it, unless this tank has chi-ri reloads (7ish seconds) and hopefully atleast 220-230ms of pen and fast intraclip reloads. then this tank will be very poor, 240 damage a shot. poor armor and meh camo for a TD at tier 8 will make it a dust collector, even with the good mobility. (based on Jpanther currently in game)

the hull is decent at tier 7 but will probably be awful at tier 8. concealment is  also going to be meh unless it somehow gets more than the TT Jpanther (due to exactly the same hull).

so i hope they  either buff the armor to atleast 100mms from 80mms or buff the concealment.

in game, we have the Iron Rain, WT auf E-100 and used to have the SP.Pz. 1 C all high tier autoloaders.

there may be others? but none come to mind.

It seems to have the exact same appearance as the TT Jagdpanther. How much lazier can the developers get?

I am assuming this will be available for gold also. Because commander mode isn’t really my thing

Um.... duh? Of course they’ll make it available for gold.  The only catch is that is may/may not be available for sale until sometime after it’s given away for free.... my guess is 2 months later if they don’t offer it for concurrent sale once it’s available to those who earned it.

You got ask sometimes. Because you never know what they are going to do.

Maybe these tanks are their response to people complaining about reskins. 

 

Make it a JPanther II hull with a 3 round auto loader and it should be fine at tier 8. Otherwise it'll need PMM. Judging by the fact it's not even on the site yet I'm betting they will have to do some extra work on it, cosmetically and everything. 

 

And rather than making more of these buff existing premiums or make more multi crew trainers. This would be worth grinding if you could train German, Czech, and maybe Italian crews in it. PC is experimenting with new multi crew training systems, would be a nice addition as there are plenty of trainers for countries like Germany, US, UK, and the USSR but it gets thinner and less interesting for the smaller countries that were allied with the larger countries.

And the outside because it's open top. :hiding:

 

One reason why I want an M rated tank game is to see the crew of something like an Iron Rain get turned into red mist.

The Sp1c lost its auto loader, the WFE100 probably shouldn't be in the game, doesn't fit the line, and was historically NOT a tank or tank destroyer. And the Iron Rain fits the same template as this. Take a TT tank and stick an auto loader on it. It's just WG cash grabbing.

So not even a special paint job, just a TT JagdPanther model that they say has an autoloader? Was this thing designed on a Friday or something? :sceptic:

In the first stage, playing a random Dog Tags vehicle earned considerably more XP than an owned vehicle. Didn't seem to be the case in the second stage.

 

Of course, you'd end up in a Vindicator with no skills/perks.... 



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

So, they've just taken another tech tree German TD and given it an autoloader?

 

I want to throttle the idiot who thought the "iron Rain" was a good idea.

 

just what the game needed was a tier 8 waffle with camo.

Iron Rain is good td but it's not that overpowered than some people think... In some situations it can be devastating but it has lot of weaknesses that balance it. Regular tech tree Borsing is better in many situations.
