[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 Waffenträger auf Pz. IV is a German tier 9 tank destroyer.

Tank destroyer developed in February 1944 on the basis of the PzIV tank. Development was discontinued in favor of a similar vehicle on the basis of the Krupp Waffentrager 12.8 cm PaK 44 of Czech origin. Existed only in blueprints.

The Waffenträger auf Pz. IV is a very similar machine to the Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger. It has excellent camouflage, guns, and a turret, while having absolutely no armor. It also has much better acceleration than the Rhm.-Borsig, allowing it to get into position faster. Its two top guns are upgraded versions of the Rhm.-Borsig's guns, with even more penetration and damage, as well as better accuracy. As on the Rhm.-Borsig, the 128 mm gun has excellent penetration and accuracy, as well as good damage, while the 15 cm gun has exceptionally high damage at the cost of penetration, accuracy, and rate of fire.

The Waffenträger auf Pz. IV leads to the Grille 15.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Small profile

- High penetration with the 12.8cm L/61 gun

- Has 360 degrees of gun traverse, although it suffered from clunky gun elevation

- All of its available guns are Tier 10s with high damage and decent penetration, and (expect 12.8cm L/61 gun) all of its guns doesn't need new tracks to support its weight

- As its modules are carried over it doesn't require a stock grind

- Very high camouflage value


Cons:

- Almost no armor; Very vulnerable against HE shells

- Weak engine in the front (like the Rhm)

- Terrible view range for tier 9

- Horrible gun depression

- Odd gun elevation, extremely high towards the front, almost none when turned to the back


Performance

The Waffenträger auf Pz. IV can be good training for the tier 10 Grille 15, as this tank has a similar rear-mounted turret. This fact means that both tank destroyers severely lack gun depression. Many players will drive the Waffentrager auf Pz. IV in reverse to allow for minimal exposure and full use of its 5 degrees of workable gun depression.

Historical Info

The Waffenträger auf Pz. IV vehicle was developed between the end of 1943 and the beginning of 1944. There were two variants planned, one with a 149mm sFH 18 howitzer and the second with a 128mm AT gun Kanone 81. The design was actually scrapped, because in early 1944, the developers started considering putting the guns on even lighter chassis (in this case modified 38t or even 38d) – and Panzer IV didn’t fit it. Another role was possibly played by the fact that by 1944, Panzer IV was already scheduled out of production. The Waffenträger auf Pz. IV never made it past the drawing boards.
