[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.

AnnoG52_Pz38_NA.png

145000

The Pz.Kpfw. 38 (t) n.A. is a German tier 4 light tank.

Developed by the BMM company as a new light reconnaissance tank on the chassis of the Pz.Kpfw. 38 (t) from July 1940. The vehicle used welding technology instead of rivets. The new engine and improved transmission allowed for a top speed of 64 km/h. Development was discontinued in favor of the VK 1303. Five prototypes were manufactured.

Essentially a Pz.Kpfw. 38 (t) with more armor, more hit points, a higher top speed, but lower acceleration.

The "nA" in the tank's name stands for "neuer Art", which might be considered similar to the term "State-of-the-art" in English. Its fully upgraded cannon is surprisingly powerful and is even able to damage a tier VII tank in certain situations. However, it is slow in reverse, making reversing an unreliable way to get out of a jam.

The Pz.Kpfw. 38 (t) n.A. leads to the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H, and the Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good top speed and accuracy on move
  • Good turret traverse speed
  • Best view range of all tier IV scout
  • Fairly small size and excellent camo values
  • 130 mm penetration premium rounds; can also penetrate tier VII vehicles


Cons:


  • Has scout matchmaking, it can meet vehicles up to tier 7
  • Poor traverse speed
  • Poor armour
  • Low signal range for this tier
  • Poor acceleration for a scout tank.


Performance

The Pz38nA is one of the most misunderstood and under-rated Scout tanks in the game. Most players can not advance past its slow acceleration and poor traverse rate, thus it ends up being labeled a dog. It is far from that.

Once you adjust your play style to the 38nA's lack of agility, you begin to unlock the true potential of this little gem of a Scout.

It is fairly small and is blessed with the best View Range for Tier IV Scouts, making it an excellent Passive Scout for its Tier. It can completely dominate same tier fights and still contribute offensively in Tier VII matches if running premium ammo.

As with most Scouts, your goal once the initial passive spotting phase is over should focus on flanking and sniping.


Early Research

  • Both the FuG 5 and FuG 8 radios carry over from the PzKpfw 38 (t), as well as the 4.7 cm PaK 38 (t) L/43 gun, which should be installed immediately.
  • Research the Praga NR engine first.
  • Next research the upgraded suspension.
  • Go from there.

Historical Info

Developed on the chassis of the PzKpfw 38 (t) in Fall of 1939, this prototype used welding technology instead of rivets for both the chassis and turret. A 250 h.p. V-8 engine allowed for acceleration to a speed of 62 km/h. The manufacturer indicated 15 were produced for prototyping and testing, but despite successfully passing all performance tests and achieving a very high speed, no order was placed. The vehicle never entered mass-production and never saw combat.

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.

The tank's actual weight was 11.8 tons. In World of Tanks, however, it weighs 11.9 tons (14.96 when upgraded).
  • Its top speed is currently 62 km/h, but a test report from Kummersdorf indicated it reached 70 km/h.
  • Both of its current engines have incorrect values. Two most historical engines for the vehicle would be 220hp Tatra T-103 and 225 hp Praga NRI (the latter's output was later increased to 248 horsepower by using twin carburators).
  • Actual armor specifications are 30/20/20 (currently 50/25/10). Mantlet was 30mm thick (currently 25mm) and roof was 10mm thick (currently 8mm).
  • Its stock turret, the Pz.Kpfw. 38 (t) Ausf. G, was never developed for the PzKpfw 38(t) nA.
  • Neither the 2 cm Flak 38 nor 4,7 cm Kw.K. (t) L/43 gun were developed for the PzKpfw 38(t) nA.
  • One of the Pzkpfw 38(t) nA's historical radios, the FuG 2, is missing. Neither the FuG 37 nor FuG 8 radio were developed for it.
