[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoF28_105_leFH18B2.png

The 105 leFH18B2 is a French tier 5 premium self-propelled gun.

Heavy B1 tanks captured by the German army during the French Campaign underwent modification and were actively used by the Wehrmacht. Some vehicles were converted into SPGs, designated 10.5 cm leFH18/3 auf Geschützwagen B2 (f).

It is the first premium self-propelled gun to be added into the game. Overall, it can be compared to the AMX 13 105 AM mle. 50, since its gun has about the same damage, accuracy, and range. Making a valuable addition to firepower on public matches, but still loses against opponents like the Grille for its unmatched accuracy and damage, many players will feel right at home using this equipment as it can be very forgiving. Its relativelly thick armor is able to bounce shots from low tier guns, giving it a better defense against light tanks. The leFH18B2 also weighs in at almost 33 tons, allowing it to destroy light tanks that attempt to ram it.

This tank has kept the damage and penetration from before 9.18, making it arguably the most powerful artillery tier-for-tier in the game, even more so after 9.18.

This tank was removed from the in-game store in the 8.6 update. It will be given as special awards during specials and events, as well as sometimes appearing as a special offer in the premium shop.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Above average view range
  • Great aim time and murderous rate of fire allows you to keep enemy tanks permanently tracked
  • Retains full 105mm Damage and Penetration after 9.18 SPG re-balance
  • Retains AP and HEAT shells to complement it's HE rounds even after 9.18
  • High shell arc means hitting targets behind cover is easier than some other SPGs


Cons:


  • Below average top speed
  • Slow traverse and acceleration
  • Despite the thick armor, the gun shield is rather thin.
  • Long shell travel time due to high shell arc
  • Did not receive a splash buff to it's HE rounds in 9.18 like other SPGs


Performance

For its main feats, it has gun elevation and depression which enable it to fire even behind some rocks and small buildings and will greatly help in self defense when needed. It has the thickest armor of all artillery for its tier, making an exceptionally difficult target to kill by low tier scouts that do not stop and aim at the weaker armored turret, although, just like the B1, this SPG can be crippled by aiming at the exposed tracks depriving it of movement, but it will take several shots to actually destroy it. A side effect of its strong armor is that it is nearly impossible to destroy by ramming. Light tanks that attempt to do so will instead destroy themselves..

The 105 leFH18B2 does not share the agility or speed of the B1, so relocation and placement can be a problem and has a rather large silhouette in comparison to other SPG's of the same tier, but it can still make good use of the camouflage Module.

It holds an impressive view range (fully trained crew with BIA and coated optics can exceed 445m even on the move), and can be exploited to use it as a Tank Destroyer in combination with the Binoculars module, but should be used only in emergency situations since its generally sullied by players, and although inaccurate, Keeping a few HEAT rounds for more consistent damage to use on self defence or as a Tank Destroyer of sorts, it can be very threatening to most targets around that get too close to you.

Hitting Small targets can be difficult as it can miss several times and the HE splash damage is very poor just like the AMX 13 105 AM mle. 50.

While the LeFH18B2 does have the lowest damage per shot of its tier, it also has the fastest rate of fire for its tier by a decent margin. This also helps it make the low splash range of the HE shells.

Note that this vehicle cannot Stun due to the low calibre of the gun, but unlike most arty, retains the ability to fire both AP and HEAT (Premium ammo).

Historical Info

105_leFH18B2-a german modification of the French B1 bis tank
105 leFH18B2 was a German 105-mm howitzer self-propelled artillery unit based on a chasis of French B-1 bis tank. In the early spring of 1941 a decision was made to convert sixteen captured French B1 bis tanks into self-propelled artillery units. Rheinmetall-Borsig company, which was in charge for the development choose to install leFh18/3(sf) ((German: leichte FeldHaubitze - "light field howitzer"), standard Wehrmacht infantry light howitzer. The weapon was crude, but simple to maintain and very effective. It had a heavy, simple breech mechanism with a hydro-pneumatic recoil system. With a newly installed muzzle brake, it could fire a 14,81 kg HE round to a maximum distance of 10675 meters. Muzzle velocity was around 460 m/s with a rate of fire between 4-6 round per minute. Production of 105 leFH18B2 was launched in late 1941, and by the end of 1942, all planned units were delivered to the troops.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

Despite the fact that the 105 leFH18B2 was created by the Germans using captured French tanks, it was placed in French Tech Line in game.
