Description

The Panzerkampfwagen II Ausführung C (Panzer II C) (Sd.Kfz. Index: Sd.Kfz. 121) was the third variant of the Panzer II light tank family.

Introduced in Update "Winged Lions", this special tank was a reward for watching streams on Twitch.tv and is no longer obtainable by any means. It is identical to the standard Panzer II C variant.

The Panzer II C is one of the few light tanks available to the German Army during World War II. The ground forces of the German Army are largely made up of medium tanks, heavy tanks, and tank destroyers. Later in the war, light tanks were rarely built because armoured-wheeled vehicles performed comparable roles far more efficiently. In general, the Panzer II C is a dangerous light tank in the hands of a good player. As most enemy tanks in the early ranks are rather weakly armoured, the Panzer II C may unleash a barrage of armour-piercing rounds down the opponent's route with the L/55 20 mm autocannon, crippling most opponent tanks with a single ammunition clip.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in a bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".
