Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent Aim Time on all guns
  • Excellent gun in the 7,5 cm Pak 40/3 L/46; excellent aim time, excellent rate of fire, great accuracy, good penetration, good
  • Great gun traverse arc
  • Great View Range
  • Good Mobility


Cons:


  • Poor Armour; highly susceptible to artillery and High Explosive rounds
  • Small Ammo Capacity; when coupled with the RoF, can easily run out

Performance

Like the Panzerjager and Marder II that precede it, the Marder 38T is meant as a pure sniper, using it's excellent guns to keep enemies at distance, so as to protect it's weak armor. It has good mobility, and should not be afraid of relocating to a new position.

Keep in mind that the vehicle has an impressive rate of fire, but limited ammo capacity, so keep from getting trigger happy and make sure your shots are penetrating so as not to be wasteful.
