[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.

The Pz.Kpfw. I is a German tier 2 light tank.

The Pz. I Ausf. A was the first mass-produced German tank. In 1935, the design was upgraded with an elongated hull and a more powerful engine. Mass production of this version, the Pz. I Ausf. B, eventually totaled 675 tanks. The standard armament was weak, but some tanks were upgraded on the Spanish Civil War battlefields to accommodate 20-mm guns.

The Pz.Kpfw. I leads to the Pz.Kpfw. I Ausf. C.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Short aim time
  • Good turret traverse speed
  • Decent mobility
  • Only sees tier II battles
  • Small silhouette gives this tank great camouflage


Cons:


  • Low top speed
  • Low penetration, especially at long range
  • Unable to hit targets which are 350m+ away
  • Weak armor. HE and autocannon shots can finish you instantly
  • Slow, so a support role with company advised


Performance

Armor is not bouncy to lower tier guns and most autocannons and so to make up for it some angling can be used if stuck out in the open with no other choice but absorbing damage. However it rarely works so try not to be caught in the open in this tank. The tank is best used behind cover and popping out occasionally to get shots off at a distracted enemy. The tank also has enough mobility to relocate at a reasonable rate, but give it enough time to accelerate as it lacks horsepower.

The guns are subpar for even tier 1 but with proper usage can be devastating. The Breda is advised due to the fact that most high threat tier 2 tanks have armor that is completely immune to the KwK 38's 23mm nominal pen, most notably the tank's rival, the Panzer II even from the sides. The Breda, while having a very long firing time (but better DPM), lower accuracy at range, is still better due to the extra 7mm of penetration. It is recommended to stick to close ranges and target flanks of well armored tanks, as 30mm of pen will go through anything but a H35 (the one tank to avoid at all costs unless using APCR). Basically choose the Breda for general usage, and only take the KwK if you know how to use it to its strengths (better at peek-a-booing due to rapid fire, better accuracy especially on the move, but has terrible penetration especially at this tier).

Overall, while this tank is inferior to most tier II tanks, it can really do some damage. Stick to cover, and use peek-a-boo tactics to make the most of the lowish pen and accuracy, but decent DPM. Treat this tank like a buffed tier I tank, with more speed, better armor, but the same guns as the LTraktor, minus the 37mm. With a few games you should soon be able to get to its next upgrade: the Pz 1C.


Early Research

  • Both 2cm KwK 38 L/55 and Breda carry over from Leichttraktor. Mount your choice.
  • Both are Tier-1 guns in this Tier-2 tank so you are still undergunned.
  • The Breda holds 12 rounds in 4 clips and shoots a 3-round burst each trigger click.
  • The 2cm KwK 38 L/55 holds 10 rounds in 5 clips and shoots a 2-round burst each trigger click.
  • Next get the first engine, then tracks for second engine.
  • Good Tier-7 radio gives long range view of battlefield.

Historical Info

The Panzer 1 was developed by the Germans in 1934. It was supposed to be a training tank for the rapidly expanding panzerwaffe. Due to a shortage of modern combat tanks, the Germans put the Panzer 1 into combat where it fared badly. It was quickly withdrawn by late 1941 after more Panzer IIIs and IVs came into production. Nevertheless, the Panzer 1 was the first ever German tank to be used operationally in the Panzer Force.
