Jagdpanzer E 100

The Jagdpanzer E 100 is definitely the last vehicle you want to meet while attempting to break through the front line. If you underestimate this German colossus, expect to be squashed like an insect with little to no effort on its side. This unyielding mountain of steel is armed with a massive 17cm cannon capable of blowing anything it may encounter into oblivion with just one or two shots! It should be mentioned at this point that besides the world-ending alpha damage potential, this terrifying gun is also very accurate and capable of penetrating 299mm of armour with standard AP shells. Although you can use it for effective sniping, in many cases you can just shoot in the general direction of the enemy vehicle and still manage to turn it into a smouldering wreck!

Based on the E 100 chassis, this tank destroyer sports quite decent armour that is capable of deflecting a lot of incoming shells, especially if you angle it properly. Moreover, the immense weight of this vehicle makes it virtually immune to ramming. An enemy vehicle is rushing towards you? Just sit back and enjoy watching their petty little tank fold itself like an accordion upon impact. Last but not least, the Jagdpanzer E 100 is equipped with spaced armour on the sides, which provides additional protection against high explosive shells and even creates a chance of a zero-damage hit.

Dangerous as it is, this tank destroyer has many drawbacks that counterbalance its obscene destructive power. The most obvious one is the extremely poor mobility. This vehicle is slow, and when we say “slow” we mean the “can’t-even-compete-with-snails” type of slow. Unfortunately, this quality is also true of the reload time, which allows the vehicle to shoot just a little over two rounds per minute – on the battlefields, this is almost an eternity! In addition to this, the Jagdpanzer E 100 has a very narrow gun arc and poor depression that not only limits its repertoire of tactical manoeuvres but also creates a high chance that you will need to move while tracking the enemy –movement that will inevitably reset your aiming focus! The last point on this depressing list is the flaw that affects most German tanks – the tendency to suffer engine failure and fire when shot in the lower glacis. Not taking a Fire Extinguisher with you to battle is almost like volunteering for the glorified position of a camp bonfire.

The Jagdpanzer E 100 is the perfect vehicle for use in urban areas with narrow streets and rubble piles. If you place yourself in a bottleneck passage and manage to hide your lower plate, you will become an almost immovable obstacle for the enemy. In these scenarios, your opponent will have virtually no chance of damaging you, while risking extreme losses in HP each time they peek out to aim at your small machine gun cupola. When in a hull down position, this is practically the only soft spot exposed to a frontal attack. However, because the cupola is located on the rear of your tall superstructure, it is very difficult to hit.

When it comes to fighting on open terrain, your tactical approach is very simple – don’t go there... ever! Remember that you are slow and cumbersome and your size makes you visible from continents away. Sound familiar? That’s basically the definition of an “Arty Magnet” – if you’re spotted in the open, rest assured that you will win the Favourite Target of the Match Award. And no, it’s not a medal – it’s a free one-way ticket to the garage, gladly sponsored by the red team.

While fighting on an open map, your best option is to keep your distance from the front line and seek out anything that can serve as some form of cover. When you’re certain that you have a place of retreat to reload or avoid artillery fire, support your team by sniping at spotted enemy vehicles. Change your location only when you’re sure that there are no enemy vehicles in your immediate vicinity and/or that there is at least one allied vehicle with you to protect you from being flanked. Remember that you have no turret and even some light tanks can knock your HP down to zero if you let them get behind you (although it may take them a while).

In order to maximise your performance on the battlefield, we suggest installing the following equipment:

 

Improved Ventilation Class III Large Caliber Tank Gun Rammer Enhanced Gun Laying Drive

 

 

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 think works best for you.

 

 

Roll out, Commanders!
