In connection with the introduction of the new German TD branch, the Panzerjäger I and Marder II vehicles were rebalanced: Panzerjäger I Reworked the collision model. Terrain resistance of suspension Panzerjäger I on hard surfaces reduced by 8%. Terrain resistance of suspension Panzerjäger I on medium surfaces reduced by 7%. Turnrate of the chassis Panzerjäger I verstärkteketten changed from 34 to 36 deg/s. Terrain resistance of suspension Panzerjäger I verstärkteketten on hard surfaces reduced by 8%. Added the radio station FuG Spr. A. View range Panzerjäger I changed from 320 m to 330 m. Aimtime of the gun 3,7 cm Pak (t) L/47 changed from 1,5 secs to 1,7 secs Amount of ammo carried for the gun 3,7 cm Pak (t) L/47 changed from 96 to 160 units. Elevation of the gun 3,7 cm Pak (t) L/47 changed from 12 to 10 degrees. Aim circle spread for the gun 3,7 cm Pak (t) L/47 after shooting increased by 17%. Aimtime of the gun 4,7 cm Pak (t) L/43 changed from 2 secs to 1,7 secs Amount of ammo carried for the gun 4,7 cm Pak (t) L/43 changed from 86 to 84 units.

Aim circle spread for the gun 4,7 cm Pak (t) L/43 changed from 0,37 m to 0,35 m. Removed the gun 5 cm PaK 39 L/60. Traverse rate for the gun*Panzerjäger I changed from 44 to 26 deg/s. 50mm PaK 39 was removed, because it was unhistorical. It was replaced by the gun 4,7 cm Pak (t) L/43. We tried to rebalance the vehícle so that its combat capability remained the same. Marder II Reworked the collision model. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II on hard surfaces reduced by 8%. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II on medium surfaces reduced by 12%. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II on soft surfaces reduced by 22%. Turnrate of the chassis Marder II verstärkteketten changed from 36 to 38 deg/s. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II verstärkteketten on hard surfaces reduced by 8%. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II verstärkteketten on medium surfaces reduced by 7%. Terrain resistance of suspension Marder II verstärkteketten on soft surfaces reduced by 23%. Removed the engine Maybach HL 62 TRM. Added the radio station FuG 8. View range Marder II changed from 360 m to 350 m. Aimtime of the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 changed from 2,7 secs to 2,5 secs Price of the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 changed from 28 900 to 30 750 credits. Aim circle spread for the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 when moving the gun reduced by 10%. Aim circle spread for the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 changed from 0,42 m to 0,4 m. Penetration of the shell Pzgr 40 for the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 changed from 126 mm to 154 mm. Penetration of the shell Pzgr 39 for the gun 7,5 cm Pak 40/2 L/46 changed from 98 mm to 108 mm. Aimtime of the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 2,9 secs to 2,7 secs Price of the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 30 750 to 28 900 credits. Aim circle spread for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 0,43 m to 0,44 m. Damage of the shell Pzgr 40 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r), changed from 125 to 115 units. Penetration of the shell Pzgr 40 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 158 mm to 166 mm. Damage of the shell Pzgr 39 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r), changed from 125 to 115 units. Penetration of the shell Pzgr 39 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 118 mm to 96 mm. Damage of the shell Sprgr 18 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r), changed from 185 to 165 units. Penetration of the shell Sprgr 18 (r) for the gun 7,62 cm Pak 36 (r) changed from 39 mm to 38 mm. Removed the gun 5 cm PaK 39 L/60. Traverse rate for the gun Marder II changed from 44 to 26 deg/s Unhistorical HL 62 TRM engine was removed. Amongst other things, the too high horsepower difference between the stock and the elite engine caused very bad turnrate of the vehicle with the stock engine. The stock version of Marder II was buffed, which is important for tier 3 vehicles. It will be now easier to play for new players and the experience players can show off their skill on higher tier tech. The 50mm gun was deemed not to be appropriate and was removed, but at the same time attention was paid to other guns. In real life, the 76,2mm gun was worse in terms of penetration than the 75mm one (that’s why the German designers decided not to use the 76,2mm gun on Marder III). In patch 8.9, the difference between gun penetrations was made historical: at this moment the 75mm gun penetration is better than the 76,2mm one. BT-7, Pz.Kpfw. I, Hotchkiss H35, D1, Cruiser Mk. I, Vickers Mk. E Type B, Jagdpanzer IV, Renault FT AC, Universal Carrier 2-pdr, Lorraine 40 t, Vickers Medium Mk. II, B1, Churchill VII, VK 30.01 (P) were all rebalanced, because these vehicles were not as good as the other vehicles of the same class and tier, that’s why it was decided to buff some of their characteristics. Vickers Mk. E Type B Turnrate of the chassis Vickers Mk. E Type B changed from 50 to 44 deg/s. Turnrate of the chassis T-26-2 changed from 52 to 48 deg/s. Aimtime of the gun 37 mm KwK 36 L/46.5 changed from 2 secs to 1,9 secs Reload time for the gun 37 mm KwK 36 L/46.5 changed from 2,3 secs to 2,1 secs Aimtime of the gun 47 mm Vickers QF changed from 2,9 secs to 2,3 secs Reload time for the gun 47 mm Vickers QF changed from 3,6 secs to 3,3 secs Turret turnrate for turret Vickers Mk. E Type B changed from 44 to 24 deg/s. Aim circle spread for the gun 37 mm KwK 36 L/46.5 when moving the turret reduced by 14%. Aimtime of the gun 40 mm Pom-Pom changed from 2,3 secs to 1,9 secs Aim circle spread for the gun 40 mm Pom-Pom after shooting reduced by 14%. Aim circle spread for the gun 40 mm Pom-Pom when moving Continue reading →
