Been beaten by this tank many times w/ my T1 Cunningham so I traded it in.  I like the tank a lot, upgraded everything I could.  The turret however is slow turning & takes quite a while to zero in.  For some reason I cannot upgrade the turret, nothing to research  Any reason why?

Because the vehicle doesn't have a turret, the gun is mounted to a gun shield which rotates with the chassis, and has a limited arc of fire.

German tank destroyers have no turrets. If you need to move more than the sweep of the gun barrel you must rotate on your tracks, which causes the aiming cycle to reset / start over. GL and GH. M

(http://wiki.worldoft...Tank_Destroyers)

Tank destroyers (except several American and the British FV215b (183) tank destroyers) lack a turret and must re-position themselves to aim at a target. However, this design usually gives a tank destroyer more effective use of concealment due to a lower profile. The heaviest tank destroyer can weigh up to 135 tons. The fastest tank destroyer can reach speeds up to 72 kph. Armor on a tank destroyer can be as thick as 305 mm, and only artillery have more powerful weapons.

Well, because it's a Tank Destroyer it has a fixed gun with a limited arc of fire.  There's a few TDs with turrets, but the majority are fixed gun machines.  Once you reach the end of the traverse arc, you have to turn the hull to bring the gun to bear.

I decided to play a battle in it to see how it is and demonstrate a few features:

Posted Image
With it's top gun, the tank is nothing short of murder for it's tier.  However, you're verythin in the armor department and you have a very tall tank for it's tier, making it a little harder to hide.

Posted Image
The loadout that I'd generally take.  Mostly standard AP, plus enough APCR to deal with anything that's too tough or too far to aim precisely and a few HE for the emergency cap resets and I cannot afford a bounce or a zero damage hit.

Standard consumables, I carry those three on every tank and everyone should (at least)  carry these three.  

Posted Image
Typical matchmaking for this tank, this is the first time I've played this tank in the better part of a year, but it was similar matchmaking back then, too.

Posted Image
Finding a bush and using it as cover isn't a bad idea, but remember that this view with the bush semi-transparent, means you're more likely to be given away/spotted by a shot.

Posted Image
Back up from the bush a bit until your sniper mode looks like this.  It'll make it a harder for you to give yourself away and be spotted.

Posted Image
If you look at the bottom left corner, you'll see the "info dashboard", look next to the gun and you'll see two black lines.  Those are the ends of the gun's arc-of-fire.  When your gun reaches those lines, it cannot turn any farther.  You must turn the hull now if you want to point the gun in a different direction.

Posted Image
When the gun is at it's peak arc, the two black lines in your "info dashboard" turn orange.  If you don't want to turn the hull, hit the "x" button.  This will keep the hull from automatically turning to keep up with the camera.  The hull is automatically locked in sniper mode.


Hopefully that'll help you out a bit.  The Marder II, or as I call it "Murder II" is another fun tank and follows immediately after this one in the tech tree.

Erich2142 & DEZLOK--  For 1 thing, my children play also on this account, for another, there are other tanks in my same low tier that I'd like to use.  It doesn't matter to me what tier I'm in as long as I'm having fun.  I don't mind training my crew to 100% & in specialties, fitting the tank with the best gun, engine, suspension, turret, radio, & ammo & then trade it in for another.  I don't take this game as serious as some others do.  To those who do, GET A LIFE.  To those of you who gave me sincere answers to my question, I thank you.
