How would you setup these tanks in order to get the most diversity out of them?

 

Pz. III J vs. Pz. IV D vs. VK 20.01 D

 

 

They are very similar, and share many of the same guns.

Of those, I find the J to be the most fun. It is much zippier than the other two, playing more like a scout than a medium. The 2001 has a beefier turret, than the other two, but in the majority of battles it is in, that small amount of armor doesn't matter. The Pz IV D gets a good 75mm at tier 4, which is pretty darned amazing. All get great DPM for the tier, along with great gold pen. The IVD gets the best of the bunch in this. They all suffer from the same crappy aim time that plagues many of the medium and lower tier German vehicles.

 

As far as setting them up, two of the three slots are the same for each: rammer and vents to maximize DPM and other stats. Then either a GLD or optics, depending on the tank and preference. I would consider putting a GLD on the IV, and optics on the others.

Are you trying to be funny by sounding stupid? Or are you just being stupid?

Vents are a must have in any of those or anything as far as that goes , the other two equipment slots you can go with Rammer , third Optics or If its offered a stabilizer , and some have Grousers that can help in softer soil around those tiers .

Only the IVD is worth playing until a buff happens to the long 50mm, nothing too crazy a buff to 90-100 pen would be good.
