PZ III K premium turd tank

 

this premium tank even though I got it free is a worthless turd .. only a tad faster then an AMX 40 and maneuvers as well as a TOG II with poor pen unless shooting arty and even then tier 5 and lower

 

this horrible turd is worthless even if you spam gold ammo because that doesn't make it go faster or turn quicker ..everything it does it does in slow motion and this is with a crew with 5 skills including BIA

 

but then again this is normal for all german premium tanks ....

 

russian game russian bias as everything russian moves fast and turns on a dime and rarely misses regardless of crew ...every single german premium has low pen gun ?? when tanks in WWII everyone BUT germany had poor pen guns ?

 

not german and im not russian simply a player fed up with completely unrealistic tank specs and whats really bad is russian game beefed up the horrible sherman american tank when it was a horrible mass produced turd that took years to make so so effective yet the tier 5 sherman which is tank america entered the war with is good in game when in reality it was horrible but easy to mass produce and service in the field ... there was a reason us serviceman welded sewer pipes to gun barrells in WWII to fool enenmy into thinking they had a bigger gun then oem pea shooter

The other tank Turuan is a tiny bit better but is blind. The 3k is better for range.

OP - serious Q for you...

 

Have you ever posted anything that wasn't a negative rant?

I'm asking because I can't think of a single thread you've made that wasn't a tired rant.

I'd love to be shown that I'm wrong.


 

 

Yeah, we all know the Pz3K is lack-luster at best.

But this isn't even a "hey WG, we're still waiting for some love on this tank here..."

This is more like you just figured out that the Pz3K is the apex of "meh".

Let's compare apples to apples:

 

Tier 5 German tech tree premium medium tank  vs.  tier 5 Russian tech tree premium medium tank,

using your chosen points:

 

                               Pz. IIIK                                   Matilda IV

Speed                        40                                            25

 

Traverse                     38                                            35

 

Accuracy                    .40                                           .41

 

Pen                            103                                           86

 

Oh, look, the "worthless turd" German tank is better in every way that you complained about.

remind me about how germany's superior bloated loltraktor tanks won against the industrial might of america and the soviet union, who actually managed to rub two brain cells together and not produce garbage like the tiger.

In a fantasy world the Tiger with it's mighty flak 88 shot at the West to fly past the pacific and shot through the tall white building killing Roosevelt.

At 165 battles with mine, I have a 51.52% WR and managed to put my first barrel mark on it.    It actually is not a bad little tank....has plenty of punch and is rather small which makes it kinda sneaky.   Hit the #2 key and still makes credits.

Sadly, tier V rarely gets any love. But it would be nice if they buffed the Pz. III K to, for example, the tier IV Pz. IV D levels, with good mobility, nice gun (110 pen, 110 DMG), good soft stats, crappy low tier armour. That tank works better at  tier V than the III K.

Thats some quality cherry-picking you did there. You casually ignored armor, aim-time, and the worst feature of the IIIk, the "worse than arty-level" bloom. Don't even try to pretend thats not an issue.

Now look, I know we all have a habit of disagreeing with this particular OP with every thread they make, but I want to clear up one thing: The PZ III K is absolutely a garbage tank.

Oh, look, the "worthless turd" German tank is better in every way that you complained about.

you are comparing a tank that does not get preferential matching with one that does. 

 

lets try apples for apples shall we? 

PZ3k vs Pz T25

https://tanks.gg/com...iii-k?t=pz-t-25

 

basically, the PZ3k is trading away accuracy for rof, which it cannot afford to do because of the low ammo count. 

its trading away top speed for mobility, which is normally not that bad, however its power to weight is still so terrible that its mobility is bad for the tier. 

its trading away well sloped armor for flat bad armor. not that it can really bounce a shell anyway.

and the gun handling, as already mentioned, is absolutely terrible, considering the gun handling on the T25 was ALREADY considered BAD. 

 

for comparison, here is the 105 DERP GUN on the M4 and PZ4:

as you can see, even an M4 DERP has MUCH BETTER gun handling AND better mobiltiy by far. the PZ4h has MUCH better gun handling and mobility is largely better as well. 

 

the PZ3k should be moved to tier 4 and its hitpoints lowered. and the gun accuracy increased.

I picked up this tank via Tank Rewards and really, really wanted to like it.  But it remains the only premium tank I will not permanently camo because I will just sit in my garage.  And that is because of its poor reverse speed.  Its hit point pool is nice but is bled from it quickly because it is just unable to withdraw from a point quickly enough when it needs to.  In this respect, it is more of a TOG than even the TOG is but isn't nearly as fun, IMO.

the TOG has good gun handling, this pile of trash does not:
