Supertest: KanonenJagdPanzer 105 Changes

The German premium Kanonenjagdpanzer, a tier VIII tank destroyer, is now armed with a new 105-mm gun with excellent characteristics.

While retaining its great mobility and small dimensions, it will receive increased firepower. With these changes Wargaming hopes to increase the Kanonenjagdpanzer’s playability and competitiveness. Based on test results, further changes might be made.

Update #1: Article updated with more information.

    1. Well guess no one is buying it currently and no one is playing it. Well guess Penetration, Alpha Damage and the HP-Pool of any tank are totally fictional, basically because it is a GAME! WG could change both (Penetration and Alpha) without changing the Name of the gun!

    2. noone was buying it anyway hence why they changed the gun in the first place

  1. Why not leave the old one, add the new Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 and give the oringinal owners a discount. I like the current one as it is, but the new one has of course way better penetration, witch would make gameplay much easier.

  2. The 105mm was a proposed upgrade which was never performed because converting existing vehicles to ATGM platforms was felt to be a better option.

  3. why not add the optional gun so we can keep the 90 mm but also can mount the 10,5 cm this way no-one gets hurt
    also its based on an RU 251 chassis but gets an different engine 500 hp vs 700 on the standard RU its needs all the mobility it can get! i have it currently equipped and have 19,23 hp/t sure its nice but it doesnt have any armor what so ever so buffing the mobility would be buffing the survivability which is in the long end way more profitable for an premium tank
