I had been playing the Tier VII Panther and It have the option of two cannons. One of them (the tier 7 gun 8,8 Kwk) give me more damage but more time to reload. The other one (Tier 8 Gun 7,5 L/100) feels like a permanent autoloader with more piercing power but less damage. I played both of them but somehow Its more rewarding to play with the tier 7 cannon. The tier 8 its of course more fun and really feels like a french auto but really I do not get heavy damage, 

 

Wich of them do you guys play? Wich one do you recomend me?

That's right.  It's not always about the size of your cannon but what you can do with it.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

The 7.5 L/100 is the bread and butter of this tank. You have more pen than most heavies at your tier and even more than some TDs. It’s DPM is fantastic only outshined by the comet. However you have way more penetration than the comet and your shells fly faster. Try to play at the beginning as a second line support tank, stay behind your team and pump that damage. In the latter stages of the game use to your advantage your HP pool and begin to play aggressive and bully remaining reds. You can out DPM almost everything except for some TDs at your own tier. It’s 7.5 L/100 is very useful at tier 8 since you will have more penetration than even some tier 8 mediums (about 200mm I suppose). With the short 8.8 you’re almost useless at tier 8. Source: I sit at #189 of the NA server in the panther 1. Not as good as some people but definitely better than most.

The 7.5 L/100 is skinny but it’s size is massive, while the 8.8 is wide but short...

You're supposed to use the 75mm L/100. If you use the KwK36 L/48 you're playing the Panther wrong.

 

Besides, if you want to use the KwK36 at Tier 7 on a medium tank, get the VK3002D instead.

75MM/100 for sure. The best pen in a medium at tier 7. You don't want to be front lining with this tank. Work the flanks and the edges of the map. IMHO multi kit, extra repair kit, and fire extinguisher are the way to go. If you get tracked someone will kill you fast and the Panther likes to burn. Your ROF is fast enough that you can skip the adrenaline. 

ANOTHER COMMENT OR QUESTION BROUGHT TO YOU BY A BLISSFULLY ABOVE AVERAGE PLAYER.

I just finished the long slog getting the cat to 60% and what I can tell you is the 7.5 is the one to use. I tried both for 10 battles each before I started the rehab and the 7.5 outperformed the 8.8 easily. Even though it had lower alpha, I was getting more damage a battle due to the ROF and the pen.

I endorse this statement.

I would also like to add that although the armor shouldn’t be relied on, when fighting tanks at distance, as one should in this tank, a lot of bounces can be had by correctly angling the upper glacis.

As a T29 player, I suggest the 8.8 for all Panthers.

My gawd, dat pen....wow. it's sorta funny when a tiger p tries to push on you and you are cutting though his front like nothing and you kinda see them starts panicking wondering how they are getting penned.
