Heavy weapon team effective against all vehicles. Must be set-up to attack.

The Pak 40 Anti-Tank Gun Team (also known as AT gun) is a Wehrmacht weapons team unit. In skirmishes, it is available from the .

As with all AT guns, it is a heavy weapons team that requires set-up before being able to fire. Once set-up, it may only fire within its range and arc of fire.

Similar to other AT guns, this unit is able to deal significant damage to most vehicles even at long range. This means they grant a lot of anti-tank power at a low cost, especially due to no Fuel cost. As a downside however, they lack mobility and flexibility due to their set-up nature. Support must be given to them as they are quite vulnerable on their own.

Upon reaching veterancy level 1 this unit gains the Ambush Camouflage ability. This allows them to toggle on camouflage, rendering them invisible to enemies unless an enemy unit gets too close. When firing from camouflage, this first shot gains significantly higher damage, penetration, and accuracy. As a downside, the Pak 40 team has greatly reduced vision and speed while this is active.

This AT gun can be towed by certain units, such as the , which also has transportation capacity for the live crewmen. If the weapon is abandoned due to the crew being killed, it can also be towed by the smaller .

Weapon team members by default take more damage compared to regular infantry (due to higher target size, making them far easier to hit). Care must be taken as a sneaky flank can be very effective against them.

As with many weapons, once the crew is killed the weapon will be abandoned on the battlefield and can be re-crewed or destroyed by anyone, including enemy players.

Veterancy Abilities

  • Ambush Camouflage: Active toggle ability. When toggled on, the Pak 40 weapons team will camouflage themselves, rendering this unit invisible to enemy players unless an enemy unit moves in too close. When breaking this invisibility by attacking, the first shot from camouflage gains +25% damage, +50% penetration, and +50% accuracy. While toggled on however, the unit has loses -50% speed and -50% vision. Overall a strong veteran ability that allows Wehrmacht players to set up their AT guns for an ambush. Camouflaging is always handy as it prevents the AT gun from being spotted too easily, and the ambush bonus practically guarantees a huge advantage in fights. Just remember that mobility and vision is drastically reduced while this is active.
