this wasnt the worst tank ever made in ww2, its uses dont translate well from real life to fh, much like how the priorities of the luftwaffe in 1944 vary completely from the needs of the luftwaffe in fh

Easy, don't get in them. From what I've gathered, the P4D is meant as infantry support, NOT fighting other tanks. Except, it fails miserably in its assigned roll as well. It doesn't have near enough splash damage against infantry, and it can BARELY hurt enemy tanks, so yea, pretty useless.

IF there are NO enemy tanks around (which is doubtful, seeing at the Pfaust won't be killing many of them) you can beat on some infantry, but it's so large and slow, it's fodder for any kind of AT gun or Expack. If it did more splash damage, AND was placed in it's proper role in maps (NOT matched up against T34's, *shudder*) they would be worth using.

i mean in fh... lol eventho i dont really know what exactly the real P4D really act in real life indeed, how exactly these kind of panzer used during ww2, since all maps using it as standart vehicle so there is no way i must admit this is the only tank i've got, other tank was taken already by other so i better using it rather than walking on foot

in real life, the panzer4D was indeed something that infantry feared. with the bow and coaxial mg's working in tandum with the short barreled 75mm (big for the time it was introduced, but quickly rendered impractical) gun, the panzer4 mowed down infantry left and right. But realistically, you could have a quality exclusive anti infantry tank thats just a machine gun with 20mm of armor, so its role isn't that special. This is painfully obvious on maps like el alamein where we have 3 anti infantry guns (stug3b (to an extent), the panzerivd, and panzer ii)

I remember when I was new to fh I got in one. I didnt know anything about tanks, or that the matilda 2 has really think armor and the panzerIVD has a shit gun. Anyway I was sitting on a hill shelling a matilda 2 below. i must have hit it ten times, and it finally turns around and kills me in one shot:0wned:
