Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Very fast and agile.
  • Rapid rate of fire on the 37mm gun.
  • Incredibly damage per minute output
  • Great credit earning.
  • It has an extra shell in the clip (4 total) compared to similar guns of the tier.


Cons:


  • Thin armor.
  • Vulnerable to HE
  • Often targeted


Performance

The Ke-Ni Otsu can be played in an assault style of manner. Due to the rapid fire reload of its 4 shell magazine, and "not too shabby" magazine reload, the Otsu can deal out massive amounts of damage to scare off or inhibit any foe. What this tank gains firepower, it loses in armor value, therefore large caliber "Derp guns " should be avoided. Due to the great standard Japanese gun depression, one can use the peek-a-boom tactic over the crests of hills. After the tanks release, it was quickly discovered that the reload time was 1/3rd of what it was originally intended to be. As a result of this mistake, the Otsu was taken off of the Blitz market and left with its very fast reload and great damage per minute
