I've been seeing little snippets about this tank for a while now, but nothing really concrete other than it being a premium tank. Does anyone have any info on it?

Listed on the "Current" full tech tree as "Retail".  Didn't make the retail release, might be in Collector's Edition.

I heard the PzII J is pretty much a insanely low tier heavy tank that is the size of a Light tank, it's very slow for a light tank, but has wonderful armor.  I think it only has a 2cm gun.   Wiki even states the J Model had 80mm frontal and 50mm side armor, over double that of the PzII L's armor.

The Collector's Edition which will probably be very expensive because of gold/premium account time included, when all some people want [including myself] are the special tanks...

I don't know how they gonna balance it, in low tier matches its invincible, in higher tier its under-gunned.

So it's the PzKpfw B2(F) with a 20mm?

So the PzII J is still unobtainable as for now right?

Dang, I really want to get that collector's Edition

So that PZII J is a superarmoured Light tank?

Think of a PzII with a 2cm gun with 80-50mm of armor but like a 30kmph speed, whense everyone else at it's tier can go like 40-60+kmph.   :lol:

It would be like a new Mini Maus. hehe

It's fine at tier 2 I think.

Any higher and it would become worthless. Plus everyone could dmg it with HE shells.

Here is a little write up about it.

Panzer II Ausf. J (PzKpfw IIJ)Continued development of the reconnaissance tank concept led to the much up-armored Ausf. J, which used the same concept as the PzKpfw IF of the same period, under the experimental designation VK1601. Heavier armor was added, bringing protection up to 80 mm on the front and 50 mm to the sides and rear, with 25 mm roof and floor plates, increasing total weight to 18 tonnes. Equipped with the same Maybach HL45P as the PzKpfw IF, top speed was reduced to 31 km/h. Primary armament was the 2 cm KwK 38 L/55 gun. 22 were produced by MAN between April and December 1942, and seven were issued to the 12th Panzer Division on the Eastern Front.
