Hello tankers! 


I’ve been using the 7.5cm kwk 43 l/70 for a long time now despite the fact that I have the 8.8 top gun unlocked already. The reason for that is because, one it’s the gun that the JgPzIV actually carries, and it has higher shell velocity and pen than the 8.8. Also it has a shorter reload time (3.3 vs the 8.8’s roughly 4 seconds). These TDs with high ROF and DPM should be a support tank, but even so, enemy tanks would stay exposed for a very short amount of time. This is where the 7.5 excels over the 8.8. Supposing a tank is exposed for 6sec, the 7.5 can pull off 2 shots, 320dmg whereas the 8.8 can only make one shot for 220dmg. In addition the higher pen might just make the difference between dmg or no dmg. Another reason i favor the 7.5 is when you’re sniping, the higher shell velocity of the 7.5 and the better gun handling is so much more reliable than the 8.8. However, despite all the merits, I see the 8.8 everywhere. I prefer the 7.5, but what do you guys think?

Well I never thought about running the 7,5 when I had the tank. But the 8,8 has 200 more DPM, and only 5 mm less pen. I also prefer the bigger alpha, since I often have to take one shot and then relocate to avoid getting hammered. But each to his own, it depends on your play style.
