[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.

annoPzII_J.png

1000

The Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J is a German tier 3 premium light tank.

Reconnaissance tank with reinforced armor. The vehicle was a further development of the Pz.Kpfw. II. In October 1939, a preproduction batch was ordered, and the first prototype was built in July 1940. From 1943 through 1944, seven vehicles were used by the 12th Panzer Division on the Eastern Front. A total of 22 tanks were manufactured.

This tank was given as a gift at GamesCom 2012. It was also available on the Russian Portal in the German Gift Box edition as well as in a special Gift Box edition along with the BT-SV, MTLS-1G14 and SU-85I. The enclosed code was valid for use on the RU server. It last appeared in the EU server gift shop on 10th December 2015 as a special offer for 24 hours and was also available on 1st April 2015 Premium Shop: Only Today – Panzer II J.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Ridiculous 80/50/50 armor layout bounces nearly all tier III and some tier IV guns
  • Premium MM keeps this tank out of tier V matches
  • Gun depression and gun handling are outstanding
  • Very fast magazine reload and decent burst damage results in good DPM, as long as it damages opponents


Cons:


  • Low top speed combined with sluggish hull traverse, moves like heavy tank
  • Extremely weak tier 1 gun; inaccurate, needs APCR to damage most tier 3s, yet still,its penetration is poor
  • Loses its usability quickly in tier IV matches
  • 25mm UFP is weak but ricochets any ~75mm gun due to heavy angle
  • Huge tracks get knocked out frequently, leaving the weaker sides and rear vulnerable


Performance

Though many seem to see the Ausf. J as a fun-tank, it can become a deadly weapon in tier III matches. With a great armor of 80/50/50, it will be hard for your enemies to penetrate you. You won´t do much damage, but you can spot and take the damage for your teammates, while they, especially TD's and artillery can shoot safely from behind positions. Using APCR allows you to deal with enemies much more effectively, though it becomes expensive very quickly.

If the unfortunate situation happens where 2 Pz. II Ausf. J's go head to head then the game will get very expensive for both. Due to the flat nature of the tanks side armour, coupled with the thickness of 50mm, shooting the flat sides can prove to be challenging and costly at best due to the bad mobility. The 46mm of penetration on the VERY expensive APCR ammunition will give you a 30/40% chance of doing damage to the completely flat side armour which can prove to be difficult due to the bad mobility.

The only other way for a Pz. II Ausf. J to kill another is to shoot down on its UFP. As it is only 25mm thick, if shot down on (maybe by backing onto a hill as you do tend to just face hug at end-game situations) you can make short work of what health is left.

None required, this is a premium tank.

Historical Info

Continued development of the reconnaissance tank concept led to the much up-armored Panzer II Ausf. J, which used the same concept as the Pz.Kpfw. IF of the same period, under the experimental designation VK 1601. Heavier armor was added, bringing protection up to 80 mm on the front and 50 mm to the sides and rear, with 25 mm roof and floor plates, increasing total weight to 18 tonnes. Equipped with the same Maybach HL45P as the Pz.Kpfw. IF, top speed was reduced to 31 km/h. Primary armament was the 2 cm KwK 38 L/55 gun. 22 were produced by MAN between April and December 1942, and seven were issued to the 12th Panzer Division on the Eastern Front.
