I review the HWK 12, a tier 8 German light tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with replays of tier 10 Sand River and Ruinberg battles.
I picked up this tank based on recent requests and expected to find it frustrating. While the glacier shell velocity is a major annoyance, but the gun is otherwise good and the vision control is excellent.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb view range (410)
+ Superb gun depression (-10)
+ Excellent alpha (240)
+ Good HP (1100)
+ Small profile
– Glacial shell velocity with AP (630)
– Pathetic shell velocity with HE (338)
– Armor is worthless
– Highly susceptible to ramming damage (12.5 metric tons)
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
