Tanker table queries

Post by Truscott Trotter »

Along with the Stug F/8 (Stug F/8 Height: 2.15m- 2.16 m (7 ft 1 in)) query already answered I was wondering if the following should have low profile and whether this effects their points ?
Hetzer Height 2.17 m (7 ft 1 in)
Panzerjäger I Height 2.14 m (7 ft)

I am assuming Low profile kicks in around 7'?as the Archer is Height 7 ft 4 in (2.25 m)?

I've always thought "low profile" to be an art rather than a science. Hetzer? The essence of low profile. SImple to camouflage. Panzer Jager I? All jagged and easy to spot.

I believe there's a discussion on the CoC forum that states the limit for 'Low Profile' is whatever height the Panzerjager 38(t) (AKA Hetzer) is... About 7'. It's not actually a small vehicle, it just looks it. I'd say the important thing is it has to be primarily flat, or at least all in one lump. The PzJg I 'sticks up' and breaks up the shape in a manner the StuG, for instance, doesn't.

Not my understanding
I assume low profile simple means less of a target when behind things like low walls and hedges. :shock:
Afterall most shots are to front not side

If so the lists are inconsistent. By my interpretation they're fairly consistent (barring acknowledged anomalies like the StuG III F8).

So how does the Hetzer fit into your theory?

The Hetzer is small, so already harder to hit. It doesn't need to be low profile as well!

So no vehicles should be small AND low profile?
Then why have both characteristics?
C'mon guys

The Semovente 47/32 and a couple of the Japanese vehicles are small and low profile.
