[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.

II

annoG108_PzKpfwII_AusfD.png

750

The Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D is a German tier 2 premium light tank.

A high-speed modification of the Pz. II intended for light divisions formed from the cavalry. The Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf. D tank had a completely new hull and suspension. The turret and guns were taken from the Ausf. C. version. The suspension had eight large-diameter paired wheels with individual torsion bars and no support rollers. The tanks with enhanced suspension elements, including new drive and idler wheels, were designated Ausf. E. According to various sources, about 200–250 vehicles of the D and E modifications were manufactured.

The Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D was the 2015 New Year's gift tank. When put to paper, the II D appears somewhat mediocre in comparison to most other tier II tanks. Most prominent among its shortcomings are its very poor AP shell penetration and thin armor (excluding the front hull). Still, the II D benefits from a better top speed and improved maneuverability compared to its non-premium cousin, and with patience and thoughtful positioning it is easily more than capable of pulling its weight.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good frontal hull armor
  • Large hitpoint pool
  • Good top speed and traverse speed
  • Good gun depression


Cons:


  • Poor turret, hull sides, and hull rear armor
  • Very poor penetration
  • Sluggish due to low hp/t ratio
  • No preferential matchmaking


Performance

The Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D's most noticeable feature is, unfortunately, its very poor penetration ability. Its lackluster average penetration of 23mm with AP is the second least in the entire game and puts it behind even machinegun-armed tanks such as the T7 Combat Car. Unlike the T7 though, the II D has the option to fire APCR rounds with an average 46mm of penetration. Thus, it is expected to pull the weight of a standard tier II and gets standard tier II matchmaking (meaning it will occasionally be put into tier III games). Though firing gold rounds will help to bypass the gun's poor AP penetration when needed, its inaccurate and rapid-fire nature means that doing so will often cost more money than the tank is capable of making. Loading only gold will cost 72,000 credits if you spend all of them firing without a care. On top of all this, the II D also doesn't get the benefit of the regular Pz II's thick armor. The 30mm frontal hull armor is capable of bouncing off-angle, low-penetration shells, but elsewhere the II D's armor is thin and leaves it with very little protection (and will often be overmatched at odd angles by large guns).

With all this in mind, proper positioning of the II D is paramount to a successful game. With its side or turret armor exposed for too long, enemy tanks will quickly chew through its large hitpoint pool. When used to shoot at the front of many tanks with AP, the II D will often fail to do any meaningful damage. The II D's good speed and maneuverability enable it to reposition when necessary and therefore allow it to stay protected while giving it the opportunity to take flanking shots on unwary enemies. The II D works best as part of a cohesive team or platoon, working over distracted tanks and cleaning up weaker ones by trading hitpoints.

Historical Info

Panzer II Ausf. D

With a completely new torsion bar suspension with four road wheels, the Ausf. D was developed as a tank for use in the cavalry divisions. Only the turret was the same as the Ausf. C model, with a new hull and superstructure design and the use of a Maybach HL62TRM engine driving a seven-gear transmission (plus reverse), giving a top road speed of 55 km/h (33 mph). The design was shorter (4.65 m) but wider (2.3 m) and taller (2.06 m) than the Ausf. C. A total of 143 Ausf. D and Ausf. E tanks were built from May 1938 through August 1939 by MAN, and they served in Poland. They were withdrawn in March 1940 for conversion to other types since the cross country speed was much lower than previous models. Starting with the D model, the front armour was also increased to 30 mm. The 2 cm autocannon proved to be ineffective against many Allied tanks, and experiments were conducted with a view to replacing it with a 37 mm cannon, but nothing came of this. Prototypes were built with a 50 mm tank gun, but by then the Panzer II had outlived its usefulness as a tank regardless of armament. Greater success was had by replacing the standard 2 cm armour-piercing explosive ammunition with tungsten cored solid ammunition, but due to shortages of tungsten this ammunition was in chronically short supply.


Panzer II (Flamm)

Based on the same suspension as the Ausf. D and Ausf. E tank versions, the Flamm (also known as "Flamingo"[3]) used a new turret mounting a single MG34 machine gun, and two remotely controlled flamethrowers mounted in small turrets at each front corner of the vehicle.[4] Each flamethrower could cover the front 180° arc, while the turret traversed 360°.

The flamethrowers were supplied with 320 litres of fuel and four tanks of compressed nitrogen. The nitrogen tanks were built into armored boxes along each side of the superstructure. Armor was 30 mm to the front and 14.5 mm to the side and rear, although the turret was increased to 20 mm at the sides and rear.

Total weight was 12 tonnes and dimensions were increased to a length of 4.9 m and width of 2.4 m although it was a bit shorter at 1.85 m tall. A FuG2 radio was carried. Two sub-variants existed: the Ausf. A and Ausf. B which differed only in minor suspension components.

One hundred and fifty-five Flamm vehicles were built from January 1940 through March 1942. These were mostly on new chassis, but 43 were converted from Panzer II Ausf. D/E. The Flammpanzer II was deployed in the USSR, but was not very successful due to its limited armor, and survivors were soon withdrawn for conversion to Marder II tank destroyers in December 1941.[1]
