The Panhard E.B.R (1954) is a premium gift rank III French light tank with a battle rating of 5.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced during Update "Hot Tracks" as a reward for the 2020 Operation W.I.N.T.E.R. event.

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Armour type:

  • Rolled homogeneous armor (hull, turret roof, turret bustle)
  • Cast homogeneous armor (gun mantlet, turret front)
  • Wheel: tires

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


  • Fast, it can reach 105 km/h in RB and deals relatively well with off-road terrain, even in reverse.
  • The main gun reloads in 5 seconds even with 2 active crew members and the autoloader has a capacity of 12 rounds.
  • The shells have a very high muzzle velocity (1,000 m/s for APC) and, despite the lack of explosive filler, deal a lot of damage.
  • Both the front and back wheels steer, resulting in a pretty small turning radius.
  • The hull armour, in the front (and back), is enough to stop .50 cal AP fire, as well as 14.5 mm AP-I(c) from 200 meters or more; the turret front may be even able to stop some autocannon fire.
  • As this vehicle is an armoured car, scouting is available.
  • APC shell with a very high penetration of 182 mm at 10 m, able to easily penetrate most vehicles that are faced.


  • Due to its shape, a penetration in the front (or back) by any actual tank cannon will mean losing the vehicle.
  • The 7° gun depression is far from optimal for players that want to shoot from an hull down position.
  • The massive radio antennas will make you visible even when the rest of the vehicle is hidden behind a hill or small building.
  • Very easy to spot and recognize from the side due to its size and shape; in addition, the side armour (15 mm) won't really stop anything more than small calibre machine gun fire.
  • The roof of the turret, right above the crew and autoloader drums, is 10 mm thick, making it vulnerable to airborne attacks.
  • May have some difficulty climbing hills without a running start.
  • Very slow when moving in mud.
  • High risk of ammunition explosion if the turret is penetrated, thanks to the large first-stage ammo rack behind the cannon.
  • Very slow acceleration (compared to other wheeled vehicles with similar HP/ton) and very poor crossing capabilities.
  • Not very mobile off-road, indeed, bar dirt tracks and concrete roads, you'll travel at around 35 km/h most of the time which is pretty low compared to other wheeled vehicles and some tracked vehicles such as T-34-57 and M18 GMC that will have no difficulty outrunning you in a straight line, especially from a standing start. This is partially recovered by the fact that, being a wheeled vehicle, the EBR does not lose much speed in turns.



Before the outbreak of World War II, Panhard created a prototype of an 8x8 army wheeled all-terrain vehicle, with the first and last swivel wheel pairs having rubber tires, the middle pairs were metal and not swivel. The army placed an order for the production of 600 of these vehicles, but the outbreak of the war and the occupation of France did not allow the vehicle to be put into production. They returned to an interesting project after the war - the wheelbase received an oscillating turret with a 75 mm gun, which turned the all-terrain vehicle into a light wheeled tank. Later, the base of this vehicle became the basis for several curious army vehicles. It is interesting that it was the Panhard all-terrain vehicle that served as a carriage for the farewell ceremony for the President of the Fifth Republic, General Charles de Gaulle.
