I saw some pretty wacky stuff tonight on Aberdeen with the Daimler. This guy was able to take out German medium tanks (PIVs) in a single shot, and it seemed like he somehow took the Tiger down in three or four. Anyone else experienced ANYTHING like this?

Someone mentioned something in another thread about being able to deal serious damage to some tanks with an SMG by firing down into them through open hatches. Perhaps this was something similar?

It had a high-velocity 2lber (40mm) cannon, that's all I really know. It was known to be a good competitor against the PzIII, dunno about the PzIV, but I doubt the Tiger.

The panzerIV is the worst tank in the mod. Just get used to it, and avoid it if you're going against anything at all with a longer barrel. It has no real armor to speak of (the back of the turret can be harmed by normal MG fire) and it's slow and large. The F/G/H variants are good tanks, but the D is crap gone bad.

The Daimler's 40mm would definately destroy a PanzerIV at medium-close range, and probably at long range as well.

Fast little guys, but I haven't used them lately to see if the cannon is overpowered.

But I seriously doubt that the Daimlers main cannon could destroy a tiger in 4 shots.

Here is the penetration table:

Calibre 40 mm Muzzle Velocity 792 m/sec Shell Weight 1.08 Kg Penetration (mm through vertical plate - calculated) Range(metres) 100 200 400 800 1200 1600 2000 2400 Penetration(mm) 58 56 53 47 41 35 29 23 Flight Time(secs) 0.12 0.26 0.54 1.17 1.89 2.73 3.74 5.01 Besides where is the Panzer IV D´s hull MG? Every PIV Chassis had one.

Every PIV Chassis had one.

I came up with the same info ( probably found the same site )

Comapre that with this :

Panzer II ausf. A/B/C side hull : up to 14.5 mm Panzer II ausf. L side hull : up to 20 mm Stug III ausf. G side hull : 30 mm Panzer IV ausf. D side hull: up to 20 mm Panzer IV ausf. G side hull : up to 30 mm Panther ausf. D : side hull up to 40 mm Panther ausf. G : side hull up to 50 mm Tiger I ausf E : side hull up to 80 mm Tiger II ausf B : side hull up to 80 mm

Conclusion must be that a Daimler can kill up to Panther tanks, if it is medium/close range, and if it shoots german tanks in the side. It's speed in game enables it to have that chance.
