So right now I’m grinding up the German tech tree up to tier 6. On four different vehicles (Nashorn, Jagdpanzer IV, VK 30.01 P and VK 36.01 H,) there is a choice between a gun with faster reload and higher pen or a gun with more damage per shot. I’m thinking about doing higher pen for the TDs and more damage for the turreted tanks. What do you all think? Thanks!

(On a funny side note, I was playing my newly bought Jagdpanzer IV yesterday and I saw a three shot VK 30.01 P. So I pull up in front of him and start shooting. I had the fast reload gun mounted, so I finished him very quickly. Then he pops up in chat calling me a hacker because I took 3 secs to reload and says he will report me. It made me laugh.)

75 mm guns are very effective for the vk 36.01 and jagdpanzer IV, that dpm really makes them shine.

I would run the 8.8 on the Vk 30 and JG, gives them that extra punch without losing much. For the Vk 36 and Nashorn it is really up to you, both guns seem very nice, so it just depends on your playstyle.

So to preface, allow me to introduce you to the concept of "DPM", or Damage Per Minute, which is the amount of damage a gun will do on average per minute over an extended period of time, calculated by multiplying rate of fire by damage per shot. 

 

 

JgPz IV

 

Nashorn

 

VK 30.01P

 

VK 36.01H

 

On a sidenote, you may have noticed that sometimes, your tanks already came with some guns or engines already unlocked, even before you played the tank. This is because some tanks share these modules with other tanks. The easiest example of this is the 8,8cm KwK 36 L/56 (which is also the historically feared "88" on the Tiger) on the VK 36.01H and VK 30.01P. If you research a module on one tank, all modules with the exact same name will be unlocked on all tanks in the same nation.

Also, use tank-compare.blitzstars.com for all your comparison needs.

Thank you very much! I was actually wondering about that whole thing of the guns seeming to research themselves. Thanks again!
