Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger
2400000
Developed by the Rheinmetall-Borsig company and designed as a special artillery carrier. The vehicle was designed to carry an artillery system as well as to fire from the chassis. The vehicle utilized the suspension of the Hetzer tank destroyer. Development continued from the end of 1942 through the middle of 1944. However, the project was discontinued in favor of the Ardelt project because of a complicated design, high cost, and excessive weight.

The Rheinmetall-Borsig Waffenträger is the first of the Waffenträger class tank destroyers available to the player. It has exceptionally good view range and sporting the highest camouflage value in its tier. Unlike most tank destroyers, its gun is mounted on a turret, making it quite versatile on the battlefield.Its first gun ,128mm gun, has high penetration, accuracy, and rate of fire, whereas the 15 cm gun sports higher damage at the cost of lower penetration, accuracy, and rate of fire. To balance, the Rheinmetall-Borsig has absolutely no armor -- even less than its predecessors -- and is somewhat sluggish like the Pz.Sfl. V. Like its predecessors, it performs best taking a position behind the front line to deliver supporting fire to enemy tanks being fought by teammates up front.
