Look what I just found

After I got killed in my T-34, I obsereved my teammates and saw these really cute Hetzers fighting each other

Wait, did I just said cute? Lol :D Of course I did that was my first impression despite in the midst of a war

Anyway, I had a pretty good experience with this TD. I got a number of rewards once in a single battle.

Unless they meet tracks or  really sloped/spaced armour of course...

I wish there was an option to select a Primary Shell type so I don't need to remember to change my HEAT to HE before every battle.

Which I don't...

HEAT is for scaring the RNGeezus out of tenks that can penetrate you easily and have good armour, so they back the hell off while you reload the HE to finish the bugger off.

You can just pick HE, little micromanagement needed... Before battle...

Hetzer is my favourite vehicle: that derp gun just makes me giggle every time some sad, special bastards come trundling around a corner to see that big, gaping maw staring at them...then they die.

In such low tiers hhow may you expect spaced armor except on the pz 4s, sloped armor on those low tiers arent effective against the hetzer HEAT shells, even if they did they could just shoot the sides above the tracks.

When I was starting, I feared this tank the most because of the armor and gun. The tank is just too good for it's tier. You can't even circle this one because this is fast as a medium. Also I use the 76mm

Its traverse is fast yet its speed and ground traction is horrible. The only way to really hull lock it is by tracking it first before getting to its side. Its side armor is just horrid that most HE would go through anyways and it can be one shooted by 105mm HE anyways. If you are engaging one by range then i suggest shooting the lower glacis if you have the pen power or if not use some gold shells

When I met another Hetzer I just load HEAT if we are facing each others. Even HEAT shell would bounce the upper plate, so always aim for tge lower glacis. It require 2 shots from 105 mm gun to kill one

Just shoot 1 HEAT and 1 HE to another hetzer, efficient and effective

when a really good and experienced player coming from higher tiers drops down to play the lower tiers (tier 1-4) killing newbies with a beefed up lower tier tank with a 100% crew exp and some really good equipment and consumables.

Basically it's like a really experienced player mercilessly killing the newbies from tier 1-4.


Yeah yeah I get it now.. Stop trying to give me usernames!!! Plz <(T-T< )

It doesn't have to be really good, but its just someone that have finished the grind for that particular tank, and takes it back out for a spin.

 

Typically, it will be a good to very good tank for the tier, thus the WR will be high.

 

It also doesn't have to be tier 1-4.  I am in the middle of the SU152 run, and I am sure it will become a great seal clubber.  Taking 1K off a Tiger II in a single shot is just bloody magnificent.  77% WR after 40 odd games, its just a crazy crazy tank.  Admittedly, for some reason not all SU152 are running derp.  I have faced off a couple Su152s face on, one shot derped one of them when they used the 122 and only took 400 odd off me.  In the other game, similar situation, I derped, got his tracks for 100 odd.  He fired back, 400 odd.  Then I derped again and he was gone.

 

A couple derp, a couple HEAT, the tank is crazy.

One shooting other SU-152s are also fun, 50 50 chance
