Recommended Posts

Just bought Panther II last week and use the coated optics that I have in the panther; so next to do was put binocs that i NEVER use to fill up the Panther' slots and this what happens:

Do you use to play with binocs on Medium tanks instead of optics?

 

P.S.: I think that i did more than a half of  the damage using them.

I think certain tanks fit with the playstyle required for binoculars to be effective (aka the campy sniper), which also happens to be the ideal playstyle for the panther.

Very nice game, I will have to remember this when I make it up to the Panther. I have been using optics on my mediums and binocs on my TD's, as I am on the move more than sitting, but sniping medium's could definitely benefit. It's a pretty good feeling when the binoc's activate and light about 4 or 5 tanks that are subsequently turned into wreckage.

I use binocs on tanks that I will be more stationary in than mobile. which pretty much means TDs. MAYBE somemediums. you could argue that the FV4202 could potentially get better use out of binocs than the optics I currently have on it.

I watched the replay, the only situation where you did damage/spotted due to the working binocs was respotting the tog and T29 at 9 to 8 mins. And for that optics would have been just fine as well.

 

Nice replay, I'll keep my optics on my beloved Panther.

 Agreed, only time binocs helped you was respotting T29 and TOG. rest of the time it was either team spotting for you or base viewrange without binocs doing the spots.

The answer is the same, you need 445m view range to see moving vehicles at max draw. You will not spot Hellcats, Russians, etc if they are properly camoed and bushes unless they fire anyway.
