The development of the E-25 was part of the "E" program under the supervision of the Committee Waffenprüfamt 6. The E-25 was developed by the Argus factories (Karlsruhe, Germany) under the leadership of Dr. Herman Klaue. There are no prototypes produced.
Pros and Cons
- Amazing speed and mobility
- Very low silhouette, only slightly bigger than the ELC AMX
- Insane RoF - a round every 3 seconds
- Excellent camo rating
- Can scout (if needed)
- Outstanding accuracy, far superior to the regular 7,5 cm StuK 42 L/70
- Can be played as a ghost recon sniper
- Very useful for quick support
- Special MM, encounters tanks only up to tier VIII
- Catastrophic damage per minute
- Annoyingly well-sloped mantlet can bounce the occasional shell
- Low armor
- Low Alpha damage and poor penetration for its tier
- Crew members get knocked out fairly easily, and the driver is located at the front plate near the gun
- Small ammo capacity for its RoF
- Low maximum damage (169) compared to other tier 7 vehicles
Overall, the E-25 should be played as a very mobile sniper. Distance is your friend, mostly because of your very poor armour, but also because you sport top accuracy, allowing you to hit weakpoints even at distance. If danger approaches, use your speed to flee. If help is needed elsewhere, you can assist swiftly. But never try to hold a position by yourself: you are simply not suited for such role.
Your gun has an extremely high RoF, which allows you to deal consistent damage against exposed enemies. If you manage to detrack a tank, you'll be able to keep him stuck there until an enemy chases you off. Your low penetration means that you'll have trouble penetrating a bunch of Tier VII tanks, and most Tier VIII. Luckily, your accuracy should allow you to hit weakspoints.
E-25 features an impressive 26.62 hp/t ratio, making it quite fast, and allowing you to reach positions quickly, as well as climb into some hard to reach locations only light tanks normally can reach. Your speed also allows you to flee and relocate swiftly, which is something you shouldn't think twice about when the situation calls for it. This speed and agility allows you to play like a turretless medium tank with atrocious DPM. Flanking distracted enemies allow you to hit their generally poor rear armour, allowing your ridiculous DPM to cripple any tank within a minute.
Your armour is unfortunately quite poor. With some luck you'll bounce Tier V tanks, but that's mostly it. You should never depend on it. As said before, DO NOT try to hold a position by yourself. You may emerge victorious on a 1v1 situation, but a second tank will already be enough to have you killed.
An interesting feature of the E-25 is its low height. Not only does it provide an extremely good camouflage rating, but it also allows you to hug some tanks and make them unable to hit you. An interesting, but quite risky move, is to head in and hug a heavy tank from its side. You won't be able to hit it, but neither will it. In the meantime, your allies should be able to kill him (of course the opposite applies as well, this should be done only when you are sure no other enemies can hit you).
Essentially, the E-25 excels as a support sniper. This is a supporting tank. Most times you won't be doing the heavy work, but you'll be supporting as much as you can. That's you role, that's your strong point. Take advantage of your mobility, get into good sniping positions, and fire away at what your team spots. Use your camouflage to hide when the enemies spot and focus on you. Help where assistance is needed, flee when the situation becomes dire. Try to always keep your distance from the enemy. The E-25 may not be the best money maker, it may not have the best DPM, alpha nor penetration, but it's probably one of the most entertaining tanks to use, especially when used properly.
The E25 was planned to be developed into a tank destroyer and reconnaissance tank. The company Argus developed a the vehicle whose design was very similar to the design of Jagdpanzer Hetzer. The five built in Alkett were driven by the 12-cylinder Maybach HL 230 P 30, rated 700hp, designed to be able to reach 65 kilometers per hour. The 26.3-ton vehicle carried a four man crew and was armed with the 7.5 cm PAK L70 gun. Additionally, there was the anti-aircraft flak a 2-cm in a small rotating tower. Later versions were supposed to mount 10.5cm KWK L68 gun.
