Vehicle Overview

At first glance the Grille 15 may not be as dangerous as the vehicle it replaced, the Waffenträger auf E 100, but underestimating it in battle can prove risky. The Grille may be relatively small and possess fragile armour, but it carries a mean 15 cm gun that can blow holes it could easily park in. The scariest part about it though is the fact that its small frame makes it quite stealthy – most of the time, the enemy will not even know what hit them. If that wasn't enough, once the Grille does finally get spotted, it can use its good mobility to relocate and get out of sight again very quickly.

When driving the Grille 15, first and foremost, you need to remember that you have no armour – pretty much anything fired at you will most likely penetrate and if it's HE shells flying your way, you can expect your modules to get messed up very badly. Therefore, you should avoid the front line at all costs.

On the other hand, the Grille's speed allows it to rush at the beginning of battle and assume a strategic position on the map before anyone else. However, if this is the move you want to make sure that your spot provides concealment and/or an escape route, should enemy scouts discover you. If they do, you can bet they will start raining fire on your spot pretty soon. Generally speaking, most of the time your place will be in the second or even third line, providing fire support and sniping for the team.

All in all, the playstyle of the Grille 15 does not differ that much from other vehicles in the respective tech tree – it's just a bit more mobile and has better gun handling.

In order to maximise your performance on the battlefield, we suggest installing the following equipment:
Binocular Telescope Large-Caliber Tank Gun Rammer Camouflage Net

 

In addition, your crew members should learn the following skills and perks:
Commander
Gunner
Driver
Radio Operator
1st Loader
2nd Loader

As always, please consider the setup for both the equipment and crew skills as suggestions. Feel free to experiment on your own and choose what you feel works best for you.

 

 

Roll out, Commanders!
