G.Pz. Mk. VI (e)
3500
In 1940, German forces captured approximately twenty British Mk. VI tanks. The captured vehicles were used for training purposes until the fall of 1942. In November it was decided to develop an artillery on the basis of the captured Mk. VI. In 1942, modifications with a 105- and 150-mm field howitzer were developed. All these artillery were lost in the defense of France in the summer and fall of 1944.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Highest caliber and hardest hitting gun among tier 2 SPG's
  • Excellent range for its tier (~850 meters)


Cons:


  • Poor gun traverse
  • Worst accuracy amongst tier 2 artillery
  • Very slow aiming time
  • Very slow reloading time
  • Weak radio


Performance

A decent Tier 2 SPG. Note that the long range of the gun is somewhat hampered by a radio that cannot reach far. This can lead to games where allies advance out of radio range, leaving you with no targeting information. The 105mm howitzer, while being a rather large gun for the second tier, even on artillery, pays for its range and damage with a reload time that can be defined as abysmal.


Early Research

  • Nothing carries over from the Leichttraktor.
  • First, research the Meadows ESTL Engine.
  • Now, research the G.Pz. Mk. VI (e) Suspension.
  • Finally, research the FuG 5 Radio.


Historical Info

The G.Pz. Mk. VI (e) is based on the Mk VI British light tank, produced by Vickers-Armstrongs in the late 1930s.

Some Mk.VIB light tanks were left behind by the British expeditionary force during the Dunkerque evacuation and Germans captured them damaged, but more or less intact. In 1940, 6 of them were rebuilt by the Germans to carry a 105mm leFH 16 howitzer and a MG34 machinegun.

The howitzer was enclosed in a thin (11-22mm thick) superstructure and the vehicle was open-topped. In fact, the superstructure was thicker than the hull armor. The new improvised self-propelled gun was crewed by 4 men and powered by the original Meadows V6 (87hp), allowing it to go as fast as 50 km/h on the road (but only 20 km/h in terrain).

Earlier it was believed that these SPG's were never actively used and spent their "life" in Belgium as training vehicles. However, now it seems they were transferred to the Artillerieregiment 227, fighting near Leningrad in late 1941, where they apparently survived until 1942. The full German name of this vehicle is 10,5cm Selbstfahrlafette auf Geschützpanzer Mk.VI(englisch).
