so, i think i made a big mistake and purchased this tank... its very fast and has some pretty decent mobility, however the gun seems to be lacking a lot, the camo rating on this tank seems to be awful and i cant seem to spot anything out even with equipment which is designed to help me do so, has anyone out there had any success with this tank?

Nobody has success in that rolling trashcan.

I am so happy to have never bought this KanonenCrapWagenPanzer.  I already have a Patton-59 though so my garage is not turd-free.

just played another round in it and it seems to actually have a purpose.... its amazing at taking our arty as long as no one on the other team has exceptional aim while you're flying down the edge of the map.

the current valid tactic on that tank is not using it. wait for the buff. there's a glimpse of hope maybe the buff will make it remotely viable.

 

I use it for daily doubles if and when I feel brave.

It's getting a buff, so that might help it play better. Never sell a premium, especially a new premium, you never know what buffs it might get.

Um, well, snipe, shoot HE at lightly armored stuff, play it as a mobile sniper ready to switch to a new position to get more shots on things

The kanonenfodder is just bad. One of the people in my clan keeps telling me he does great in it, but that doesn't change the fact that every stat in the tank is subpar.

Why buy the Kanpanzer when it's better cousin the Jagdtiger 88 is on sale? Honestly though I have no real idea what to say on how you can improve in that tank I have yet to see one have a good performance whenever I see them in game....your best bet would be to hang on to it and see what they do with the buff

because kanonenjagdpanzer is a dream tank. collector's dream. not to play but to keep in garage cuz the other 399 tanks so lonely without kanonenjagdpanzer.

when i bought it, the 88 wasnt on sale, and i also already have the 88 so i wanted another prem tank and im partial to TD's, i just hoped it would be better, i didnt do my research first.

Yeah it would be decent if it got a 20-30% dpm buff, but apart from that it's pretty useless.

This premium trap is on a list of premiums that will be getting buffed sometime this year so my advice is just to park it and wait until some changes are made to improve the tank. Basically this fodder panzer is the worst premium tier 8 in the game hands down.

I enjoy playing mine sometimes, it takes a bit of skill to do well in it, you have to be very very careful, and have good map awareness

Yes it's called seriously underpowered. Some call it AMX 12t mode.
