The Pz.Kpfw. II is a German tier 2 light tank.

The A, B, C, and F models were produced from March 1937 through April 1940 and from March 1941 through December 1942, with a total of 1,637 vehicles built.

This tank combines good speed with excellent maneuverability, and boasts 30mm of armor on the front hull and turret. It's one of the few tanks in the game that can only use auto-cannons. Its 2 cm Flak 38 L/112 auto-cannon can penetrate nearly every other vehicle at its tier or below, and well-aimed shots can penetrate most tier 3 tanks. As with most tanks of its tier, the Pz.Kpfw. II is easily upgradable and it's a tank that is a lot of fun to fight in, especially as the player's skills improve. A popular vehicle, you will doubtlessly face this tank many times on the battlefield.

The Pz.Kpfw. II leads to the Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. G and the Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. A.

Historical Info

In July of 1934, the Waffenamt (Ordnance Department) ordered the development of an armored vehicle ten tons in weight and armed with a 20mm automatic cannon. In early 1935, a number of manufacturers, including Krupp AG, MAN (chassis only), Henschel und Sohn AG (chassis only), and Daimler-Benz AG provided their prototypes of the Landwirtschaftlicher Schlepper 100 (LaS 100) - agricultural tractor - for evaluation by the army. The new vehicle was also known as the 2cm MG Panzerwagen and as VK 622 (Versuchkraftfahrzeug 622). The new light tank, Panzerkampfwagen II, was to supplement new Panzerkampfwagen I light tanks as a vehicle with heavier armament capable of firing armor-piercing and high explosive rounds. Krupp was the first to present their design, but it was not adopted. It was then decided to utilize the chassis designed by MAN and hull by Daimler-Benz. In October of 1935, the first soft steel prototype was tested and ten LaS 100 tanks, later designated as Ausf a1s, were ordered. From late 1935 to May 1936, MAN produced ten Ausf a1 tanks.

The Panzerkampfwagen II (Sd.Kfz.121) was larger than the Panzerkampfwagen I, but was still a light training tank. Due to the delays in production of the Panzerkampfwagen III and Panzerkampfwagen IV, the Panzer II entered combat service as a "stop-gap" vehicle for the expanding Panzertruppen. Similarly to the Panzerkampfwagen I, it did not prove very effective in combat, although it was the main battle tank of the Panzertruppen until 1940 and 1941.

Overall, the Panzerkampfwagen II was ineffective as a combat tank but was an important step in the development of more powerful panzers. When put in good hands, the Panzer II was a good light tank and an effective light reconnaissance vehicle that provided German designers and manufacturers with more tank building experience. As with any other panzer, its chassis became a base for the usual conversions, including the Marder II tank destroyer, Wespe self-propelled howitzers, and others. Additionally, other designs utilized the same components: the Flammpanzer II Flamingo/PzKpfw II(F) flamethrower tanks, the Schwimmpanzer II amphibious tank, and the Sturmpanzer II Bison self-propelled gun.
